Q.

trends 2019

I am looking for some information on what type of bacterial and viral pathogens we are seeing in the diagnosis/testing of sinusitis this year (2019) in South Africa. Would you be able to give me some information on what commonly is seen in these infections?

This is not routinely tested in clinical practice. Most are treated without pus swabs, so best to speak to a microbiologist.
