In CRS, hyposmia and anosmia are experienced more frequently (but not exclusively) by patients who have nasal polyps than by those who do not. Symptoms and endoscopic/radiographic findings correlate poorly in CRSwNP, highlighting the importance of taking a careful patient history when patients present with sinus symptoms.

Nasal symptoms including postnasal drip are common in CRSwNP; other nasal symptoms may include nasal obstruction, blockage, congestion, stuffiness, and nasal discharge (ranging from thin to thick and clear to purulent).
