Septal deviation is a common disorder and its role in pathogenesis of sinus pathology remain uncertain ,
Different type of septal deviation affects sinuses in different feature.
Design of study : prospective study


Rate of each type of septal deviation .
Morbidity of septal deviation .
Associated sinonasal pathology .

Patient and methods

About 150 patients. collected from out patient clinic from  AL.Yarmouk teaching hospital from April 2017 till Augest 2018 who complain from nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, facial pain others for at least 3month, patients presented without previous diagnosis.
All patients collected due to symtomatic septal deviation, then  examination done  either by ant. Rhinoscopy using head light and killian  nasal speculam, endoscopy rigid type 4mm (00&300) and fibroptic (nasopharyngeal)
Doing C.T scan for each  patient to observe  change in each type on paranasal sinuses ,the shape of deviation which seen by endoscopy and exclude other nasal and paranasal pathology
Data collected in questioner or statistic  reading method using P.value .
Observe rate of each type ,morbidity of septal deviation consequence of pathology of each type regarding of sinuses .


In this current study for 150 case symptomatic septal deviation we observe :
C-shape (91)60.6%
S-shape (59) 39.3%
we found 70 case associated with sinus pathology
C-shape=32case 45.8%
S-shape =38case 54.2%


Deviated nasal septum associated with significant sinonasal disease especial S-shape DNS which show statically significant correlation with  sinus disease .
Nasal obstruction  are the main complain of  septal deviation .
Bilateral  sinus disease more associated with S-shape &unilateral sinus disease with C-shape .
