Although more common in adults, nasal polyps are a clinical concern for pediatric patients and can significantly affect quality of life. In general, nasal polyps are defined as abnormal lesions that stem from any part of the nasal mucosa or paranasal sinuses. Various disease processes in the nasal cavities result in the formation of polyps. Chronic inflammation is believed to be a significant mediator of disease.
