Abstract

Rhinitis and especially allergic rhinitis (AR) remain the most frequent hypersensitivity condition, affecting up to a quarter of the population and impacting upon the quality of life of individual patients and the health economy. Data, especially in respect to underlying pathophysiological mechanisms mainly derive from adult studies and are subsequently extrapolated in the pediatric population. Therapeutic algorithms for children with rhinitis in children are long based on the same principles as in adults. We explore and describe novel aspects of rhinitis, ranging from mechanisms to disease classification, phenotypes, diagnostic and monitoring tools, and the use of treatments, with focus on the traits of pediatric age groups.
