Meltzer Clinical Scoring System for Nasal Polyps

The Meltzer Clinical Scoring System is a 0–4 nasal polyp grading system:

0 = no polyps

1 = polyps confined to the middle meatus

2 = multiple polyps occupying the middle meatus

3 = polyps extending beyond middle meatus

4 = polyps completely obstructing the nasal cavity
