Objective: Nasal Polyposis (NP) is a chronic inflammatory disease and genetic factors play an important role in the pathophysiology. Mammaglobin-A (MGA) gene expression was significantly higher in patients with NP and chronic rhinosinusitis compared to normal mucosa. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the MGA gene and nasal polyposis in the Turkish population.
