The literature on sinusitis in infancy and childhood is far too voluminous to review in a few pages. It deals, for the most part, with reports on patients who have been referred to hospitals because of infections in the respiratory tract or on children seen in clinics and in practice. This report presents another type of approach to the investigation of the paranasal sinuses in children—the consideration of the paranasal sinuses of the average healthy child.
Data on the growth of the sinuses and the variations in their size at different ages from birth to late adolescence have been reported prevously.1 This paper represents an analysis of the evidences of infection of the respiratory tract as obtained from the history, the physical examinations and the roentgenograms of the chest and paranasal sinuses in the same group of average healthy children who furnished the material for the previous study.
