The paranasal sinuses are common sites of infection in children. The diagnosis of sinusitis may be challenging because the sinus cavities are small and variably contoured, the clinical manifestations are often nonspecific, and the radiologic findings may be equivocal. Because many local and systemic factors contribute to sinusitis in children, the therapeutic regimens vary. In addition to conventional medical approaches, new surgical procedures and improved anesthetic techniques have made functional endonasal sinus surgery an excellent management tool for selected patients with chronic or recurrent disease.
