Ozena

  • Definition
    • Ozena is a disease of the nose in which the bony ridges and mucous membranes of the nose waste away.

      Ozena is also called atrophic rhinitis.

  • Symptoms
    • Nasal crusting, discharge, and a very bad smell are other common symptoms of ozena.

      Ozena may develop after a long period of nasal swelling.
