Atrophic rhinitis is inflammation of the inner lining of the nose due to thinning (‘atrophy’) of the inner layer. It is most commonly found in teenagers who complain of a foul-smelling greenish discharge from the nose, decreased sense of smell and pain. The discharge may accumulate in the nose forming crusts which, when manipulated, cause bleeding. This condition can result from infections, nose surgery and radiation therapy for head cancer.
