The article discusses the common causes of nasal obstruction in children. It mentions that nasal obstruction can be congenital and acquired and its symptoms include rhinorrhoea, mouth breathing, feeding problems, snoring, and sleep disturbance. It describes several nasal obstructions suffered by children including choanal atresia, congenital midline nasal masses, foreign bodies, nasal tumor, rhinitis, septal deformity, and adenoidal hyperplasia.

    Allergic rhinitis (AR) is an allergic inflammation of the nasal airways. The Korean herbal medicine, So-Cheong-Ryong-Tang (SCRT) has been typically used for the treatment of AR for hundreds of years. In the present study, we investigated whether SCRT suppresses the progression of AR in animal...

    Pancreatic cystic lesions are rare clinical entities. To the best of our knowledge, only 38 cases have been reported in the English literature in children under the age of 2 years. We present a 2-month-old infant with a cystic lesion in the head of pancreas. We reviewed the possible causes and...

    Sphenoid sinus lesions can present with a multitude of symptoms/signs including ophthalmic disturbances. We describe a total of five patients, of which two had mucoceles and rest three had fungal infection. Ophthalmic symptoms/signs were the ones we were really interested in. We also present one...
