Mast cells, eosinophils and goblet cells in nasal allergy

  • 7 Accesses

Abstract

This work was taken up to assess the mast cell population in nasal allergy both in nasal smear and nasal tissue in correlation with the eosinophils and goblet cells. An attempt had been made to find out the significance of these cells in arriving at a diagnosis of nasal allergy.
