OBJECTIVE Recent studies have suggested that the origin of bacteria that enter the lateral wall of the nose and paranasal sinuses arise from the nasopharynx. The purpose of this study was to compare the molecular biological profiles of potential pathogens found in the nasopharynx and lateral wall of the nose concomittantly in children undergoing surgery for upper respiratory tract disease. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING Fifty-two children undergoing adenoidectomy for either tonsillectomy or… CONTINUE READING
