The Pediatric Aspects of Allergic Rhinitis
Abstract:Allergic rhinitis is the most common atopic disorder in the child and one which usually follows the child into adulthood. Rhinitis may predispose the child to increased incidence of otitis media, serous otitis and chronic sinusitis. Rhinitis in childhood is more likely to be of allergic origin and, therefore, more responsive to both medical management and immunotherapy. Early recognition and treatment is of paramount importance in reducing morbidity and complications.
