Abstract

It has been estimated that children have 6 to 8 upper respiratory tract infections per year and that 0.5 to 5.0% of upper respiratory tract infections are complicated by sinusitis. Sinusitis is often considered an annoyance of little consequence, but the complications of sinusitis may be associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Sinusitis in children had traditionally been a poorly defined entity, but studies performed within the past 6 years have provided meaningful data to guide the management of patients with this condition. Recent reviews of sinusitis should be consulted for comprehensive discussion of this topic. The relevant principles of anatomy and physiology, diagnosis and treatment are reviewed below.
