Author information

Division of Otolaryngology, University of Missouri School of Medicine, Columbia 65212, USA.


Otitis media and sinusitis are common pediatric diagnoses and share common features that are described in this article. Although the anatomy, physiology, and disease processes are not identical, knowledge of the basic pathophysiology of middle ear disease often enables a clinician to have a useful working understanding of sinus disease. Recognizing these similarities provides a better understanding of their pathophysiology and treatment.
