Pediatric sinonasal diseases encompass a huge variety of pathologies. First of all is to be familiarized with the complex anatomy and its normal pattern of development from birth to adolescence. There are several imaging techniques for evaluating inflammatory disorders, which are the main common, congenital malformations, and neoplastic entities. Cross-sectional imaging, with both CT and MRI, has changed our approach and understanding of the anatomy and pathology of sinonasal disorders. In this chapter, we describe the various imaging techniques available, and provide an overview of the diverse pathologies affecting the paranasal sinuses in children.
