Abstract


Diagnostic of rhinitis allergy was based on anamnesis, physical examinations. Examine including anterior rhinoscopy, nasal
endoscope, skin test and laboratory assay of nasal cytology, eosinofil count in the blood. Eosinofil mucosal nasal brushing assay and
eosinofil routine hematology can be used as other examination to diagnose rhinitis allergy and to evaluate therapy response. The aim
of the study was to know the correlation between eosinofil level on mucosal nasal brushing and routine hematology in suspect allergy
rhinitis. The study used cross sectional methods, and was done among 37 suspected Rhinitis Allergy patients in the Clinical Pathology
Laboratory, and the Clinic of Ears, Nose and Throat at Wahidin Sudirohusodo hospital Makasar, during the period of March - August
2008. Eosinofil mucosal nasal brushing assay used Hansel stain and routine hematology assay used automatic blood cell counter Sysmex
1800i. The data were analyzed with Pearson Correlation test using SPSS for Windows version 12,0. In the results were found from the
37 samples by a correlation test the mean eosinofil level of mucosal nasal brushing. In men was 12.9/HPF and in women was 5/HPF.
While eosinofil in routine hematology in men was 1595/µl and in women was 551/µl, with p < 0.000 and r = 0.930. The conclusion
so far from this study that the correlation of eosinofil count between mucosal nasal brushing and hematology routine in those patients
suspect rhinitis allergy was very strong. So this test can be used as an alternative examination to diagnose rhinitis allergy.
