1. Comparatively big ethmoid cells
2. Ager nasi
3. Pneumotized concha media
4. Nasal septal deviation
5. Hypertrophic mucosal thickening
6. Changes in air flow pathways
7. Outdoor stimulants like allergens or particles

Physiological factors:
1. Body chemicals that cause excess and/or thick mucus secretion
2. Neurologic factors that determines the composition of mucus
3. Neurologic factors that determines the activity of mucocilliary system functions
