Allergic Rhinitis in Children

Sp. Todorov


The author points out the special features of the allergic rhinitis in childhood in regards to the epidemiology, the clinics, the diagnosis and the treatment. The high frequency of the disease from early childhood, affects the development of the child and it could lead to different complications, first of which is the bronchial asthma. The diagnosis in children is much harder in comparison to the one in adults. The main principle while curing the disease is for the process to be conservative. A scheme is given for the therapeutic behavior within the different forms of allergic rhinitis in children.


Авторът посочва особеностите на алергичните ринити в детската възраст по отношение на епидемиологията, клиниката, диагнозата и лечението. Изтъква се голямата честота на това заболяване още от ранна детска възраст, което се отразява върху цялостното развитие на детето и може да доведе до различни усложнения, на първо място бронхиална астма. Диагнозата при децата е много по-трудна в сравнение с възрастните, а главният принцип при лечението е последното да бъде щадящо. Дадена е схема за терапевтично поведение при различните форми на алергичен ринит при децата.
