She was treated with nasal wash and antibiotic therapy without surgical intervention. She has received hormone replacement therapy for one year and her condition has gradually become stabilized. Meanwhile, the lesion of MRI image didn't become serious after one year. Conservative treatment might be an option for the patients with PA, those reject...
