Sinonasal disease is one of the most common clinical head and neck pathologies. The major symptom of sinonasal polyps that help in diagnosis is nasal obstruction. On Computed Tomography, sinonasal polyposis appear as round soft tissue masses originating from the mucosal lining of sinonasal cavity. Objective of this research is to check the frequency of nasal and paranasal sinus polyps by Computed Tomography. By the use of cross sectional descriptive study and convenient sampling, 59 patients were included in the study of all age groups. Patients affected with trauma or any disease resembling sinonasal disease were excluded. 128 slice Philips machine was used to obtain coronal and axial views images. SPSS 20 was used for the statistical analysis, frequencies and percentages. Total patients selected for this research were 59 out of which sinonasal polyposis affected 15 people (25.4%) which were mostly males 55.9% at an average age of 35.5 years. The mostly occurring symptom of this disease is nasal obstruction along with mucosal thickening which was found to be present in 64.4% patients. Most commonly multiple sinuses (72.9%) were affected bilaterally (61%) and bone erosion (13.6%) was found to be a less frequent variable. Males were more affected than females. This study concluded that paranasal polyps occur frequently rather than Nasal polyps.
