Sinusitis is common in children and is usually associated with viral upper respiratory tract infections. Most bouts of sinusitis clear up on their own, but when the infections become frequent and unrelenting, antibiotic therapy may be required as sinusitis treatment. When infections do not respond to antibiotics used in sinusitis treatment and when other causes, such as allergy and adenoidal enlargement have been ruled out, sinus surgery may be recommended. At Cleveland Clinic, we have extensive experience performing endoscopic sinus surgery operations in children using the latest equipment, including computerized image guidance.
