Abstract

Pediatric rhinosinusitis is a common problem in the office of pediatricians and otolaryngologists. It most often represents a complication of a viral upper respiratory tract infection (URI), or allergic inflammation. The primary treatment is medical and will lead to resolution in the vast majority of patients. Adenoidectomy and endoscopic sinus surgery provide safe alternatives for those that fail maximum medical therapy. Physicians treating these patients should be attuned to the specific needs of the pediatric population in general and those children with overlapping systemic diseases.
