Adenoid Hypertrophy

Adenoid hypertrophy is common in children. If identified in an adult, adenoid hypertrophy could indicate a lymphopro-liferative disorder or HIV infection. The patient may present with nasal symptoms or symptoms of eustachian tube dysfunction. In the pediatric population, adenoid hypertrophy causes chronic or recurrent nasal obstruction, rhinorrhea, snoring, cough, or otitis media. The diagnosis is usually clinical but can be confirmed with lateral neck radiograph. If symptoms are severe or persistent, adenoidectomy is indicated; improvement is usually dramatic.
