Abstract


ABSTRACT
All the cases diagnosed as allergic rhinitis in the ENT outpatient of DHQ hospital Abbottabad
over a period of one year were included in a study of the pattern of seasonal allergic rhinitis in Hazara
division of NWFP, Pakistan. Maximum cases out of total 56 over a year were found in March (n=20) &
April (n=30). In 90% of these cases history of other associated allergies was also present while the rest
of the cases did not show any such association. Out of the total 56 cases, 26 patients were females and
the rest were males. Most of the patients were below 40 years of age. Pollens seem to be the major
allergens in this area especially those of the poplar and pine trees.
