|Nasal problems in children.|
|PMID: 958739 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE|
|Nasal problems in children are very common. The factors that affect the embryologic development have been discussed. Injuries that occur in prenatal, natal, and postnatal periods affect normal development. Prompt treatment of minor injuries is necessary to prevent airway problems later. The "wait and see" attitude toward nasal deformity is ill advised. X-ray findings are not conclusive, as the nasal pyramid in a child is largely cartilaginous. Obstructive nasal breathing can result in facial asymmetry, malocclusion, and cardiopulmonary problems. Allergy and sinusitis are frequently causes of obstruction.|
