Practical Points

  • Uncontrolled persistent allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis are often found together in pediatric patients

  • State-of-the-art guidelines like ARIA and EPOS provide clinicians with evidence-based treatment algorithms for allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis, respectively

  • The primary treatment of pediatric rhinosinusitis and persistent allergic rhinitis includes intranasal corticosteroids and saline irrigations

  • Concomitant anatomic nasal deformities, global airway dysfunction, and systemic diseases should be excluded, in patients with persistent symptoms despite standard therapy
