Abstract

Nasal polyps are inflammatory lesions of sinonasal tissue that are associated with chronic rhinosinusitis, allergic reaction, and other diseases. Although it is the most common cause of nasal polyps, chronic inflammation of the nasal cavity is not common in children. When nasal polyps are found in childhood, it is important to investigate the cause, such as immunodeficiency disease, cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia, and other syndromes such as Woakes’ syndrome. We report a child who presented with nasal polyps combined with bronchiectasis with a review of related literature.
