 Symptoms of pain and suffering sensation seem to be significantly absent in cases of atrophic rhinitis : only 9 cases out of the 26 made such a complant. These 9 cases consisted of the majority belonging the age group of adolescence and early adult : a very few fell in the old age.

 The authors state that the reason less compliants are made by people in the old-age category is likely the result of their becoming more or less tolerant to long-standing chronic malady and in addition to the fact that the people in old-age becoming less scrupulous. The authors object to the theory that spontaneous cure may occur at acclimatic period.
