The Editorial Executive Committee welcomes letters, which should be less than 250 words. Before a decision to publish is made, letters which refer to a published article may be sent to the author for a response. Any letter may be sent to an expert for comment. When letters are published, they are usually accompanied in the same issue by their responses or comments. The Committee screens out discourteous, inaccurate or libellous statements. The letters are sub-edited before publication. Authors are required to declare any conflicts of interest. The Committee's decision on publication is final.
After reading Chris Del Mar’s article on acute sinusitis and sore throat,1 I would like to ask him if there is evidence for the commonest treatments that ear, nose and throat surgeons use for sinusitis. These include oral or topical steroids plus saline nasal rinses.
