    Abstract

    Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is one of the most common persistent disorders of the developed world, requiring input from various specialists including primary care physicians, otolaryngologists, respiratory physicians, and allergologists. B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (BLPDs) are a heterogenous group of malignant conditions defined by an accumulation of mature B lymphocytes in the bone marrow, blood, and lymphoid tissues. We present a case report of an elderly man with rhinosinusitis-like symptoms and atypical features prompting further investigations that culminated in a diagnosis of BLPD.
