Objectives: To determine the Sinonasal Outcome Test 22 (SNOT 22) score in persons without chronic rhinosinusitis. Design and setting: As part of a trans-European study selected, respondents to a survey questionnaire were invited for a clinical visit. Subjective symptoms and rhinoscopy were used for the clinical diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis according to EPOS. Participants: A total of 366 persons participated at the clinical visit and of these 268 did not have chronic rhinosinusitis. All participants completed the SNOT 22. Main Outcome measures: The SNOT 22. Results: The SNOT 22 score ranged from 0 to 67 with a mean score of 10.5 (CI: 9.1-11.9) and the median score was 7. Persons with allergic rhinitis and blue-collar workers had a significant higher score. Conclusion: The median value of 7 is taken as the normal SNOT 22 score in persons without CRS and can be used as a reference in clinical settings and research. Allergic rhinitis and occupation affect SNOT 22 in persons without CRS.
