[Hormonal-metabolic interrelations in children with chronic sinusitis].


Examinations of 100 children suffering from catarrhal, serous, purulent or purulent-polypous sinusitis revealed hormonal and metabolic changes of different type. However, plasma concentrations of hypophyseal hormones (ACTH, STH), adrenocortical hormones (11-HOCS) as well as catecholamines (dopamine, DOPA) and glucocorticoids (total 17-HOCS, cortisone, THE, THF) showed no correlations. In the case of serous, purulent and purulent-polypous sinusitis there was a slight correlation for the coefficients of norepinephrine + cortisol, epinephrine + cortisol, epinephrine + tetrahydrodeoxycortisol.
