Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) with polyps rarely occurs in children. The most common systemic disease associated with nasal polyps in this age group is cystic fibrosis. Among different types of nasal polyps presented in children, antrochoanal polyps are the most common. Tumors and congenital malformations should be considered when determining a diagnosis. The treatment of choice for CRS with polyps in children is pharmacotherapy with glucocorticosteroids as best option. In the case of non-effective pharmacotherapy, surgical procedure should be considered. The article presents epidemiology, classification, clinical symptoms,
diagnostics and management of CRS with polyps in children.
