Abstract: Endoscopic management of pediatric nasal obstruction in children of school going age is a safe and effective method and it guarantees successful outcome. The objectives of this study were to establish the advantages of endoscopic evaluation in pediatric patients of school going age with persistent nasal obstruction and to determine the correlations between symptoms described at presentation, and endoscopy. Patients aged 6-15 years having persistent nasal obstruction were included in the study. The results suggest that endoscopic evaluation of persistent nasal obstruction in children, despite the reservations expressed by many clinicians, is effective when optimal medical treatment proves unsuccessful. The different causes of nasal obstruction were evaluated with a higher degree of confidence as endoscopy permitted the exact visualization of sinonasal anatomy. The endoscopic management of persistent nasal obstruction in children is a safe, effective and reliable method in the patients who do not respond to the optimal medical management.
