Abstract The first seven years of a child's development are often described as the catarrhal stage. This is because of the increased incidence of upper respiratory tract infections. Nasal obstruction in the children is common and symptoms are often distressing. The authors report a rational approach to this problem to produce effective treatment of recurrent nasal obstruction. In particular clinical features, diagnosis, and therapy of recurrent rhinitis, adenoid hypertrophy, and tonsillar obstruction are described. The indications for adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy or adenotonsillectomy has been questioned.
