Abstract

Objective: Nasal polyps are common, abnormal lesions. Recurrence of the nasal polyposis is prevalent and a severe problem. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between Ki-67 immunoreactivity and the risk of recurrence of nasal polyps. Ki-67 staining of polypectomy material was tested as a risk factor for recurrence independent of etiologic factors or treatment modalities.
