Supranuclear stria of ciliated cells in allergic rhinitis



Supranuclear stria of ciliated cells in allergic rhinitis



Medicina 67(4): 360-362



Nasal secretions were studied in 80 allergic adults patients: 16 with intermittent rhinitis and 64 with persistent rhinitis. The percentage of supranuclear stria of ciliated cells with regard to leucocytes was studied by nasal scraping. Four groups of patients were classified according to nasal leucocytic predominance: patients with eosinophilic predominance with eosinophils > 10% in Group A (N=23), patients with abundant neutrophils and eosinophils >10% in Group B (N=15), patients with scant leucocytes in Group C (N=29), patients with neutrophilic predominance without eosinophils in Group D (N=13). An increase of supranuclear stria percentage was correlated to eosinophils > 10% and also correlated to scant leucocytes. Nevertheless, a significant decrease of supranuclear stria percentage was observed in neutrophilic leukocytosis of bacterial etiology.
