hi,polyps are masses arising mainly from the mucous membranes of the nose and paranasal sinuses. They are overgrowths of the mucosa that frequently accompany allergic rhinitis.

Corticosteroids are the treatment of choice, either topically or systemically.Surgical intervention is required for children with multiple benign nasal polyposis or chronic rhinosinusitis who fail maximum medical therapy.
