Yellow Nail Syndrome (YNS) is characterized by a triad of ankle edema, pleural effusion and yellow nails. A close association was also found between YNS and rhinitis and sinusitis ranging from 25% to 83%.

Our aim is to emphasize the importance of upper respiratory tract diseases in this uncommon syndrome.
