ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study was designed to analyze the characteristics of craniofacial hyperhidrosis and palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis by nasal endoscopy and body composition test.

Methods:
The study sample consisted of 20 and 22 patients with craniofacial hyperhidrosis and palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis, respectively, who answered questionnaires and underwent nasal endoscopy and body composition test. The questionnaires estimated the quality of life by Dermatology Life Quality Index score (DLQI), and the degree of obesity was evaluated using body mass index (BMI), percent body fat (PBF), and waist-hip ratio (WHR). The state of nasal cavity was evaluated by color, humidity, and swelling of the mucous membranes, and runny nose.

Results:
BMI, PBF, and WHR were higher in patients with craniofacial hyperhidrosis than in patients with palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis. Rhinitis score was not significantly different between craniofacial hyperhidrosis and palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis. There was a positive correlation between rhinitis score and DLQI.

Conclusions:
The degree of obesity was higher in patients with craniofacial hyperhidrosis than in those with palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis. The state of nasal cavity was not significantly different between craniofacial hyperhidrosis and palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis, but was associated with quality of life of hyperhidrosis patients.
Key words: craniofacial hyperhidrosis, palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis, obesity, rhinitis
