Nasal polyp in Child
The majority of cases are associated with edema and eosinophilic infiltration. Although the precise cause of formation is unknown, the etiology of nasal polyps is regarded as multifactorial and as being linked with chronic mucosal inflammation. Contributing factors may include cytokine mediators, innate immune defects, infection, genetic factors, environmental exposures, and inflammatory conditions.
Nasal polyps are frequently associated with chronic sinusitis, asthma, aspirin sensitivity, nonallergic (eg, vasomotor, drug induced) and allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis, cystic fibrosis, and alcohol intolerance.
