Nasal septal surgery among children remains controversial because of its adverse effect on craniofacial development. Recent studies, however, have demonstrated that early nasal septal correction prevents the midfacial and nasal growth deformity that is the inevitable consequence of nasal septal abnormality. Nasal septal surgery in children has been reported to lead to significant improvement in quality of life. We reviewed the existing literature to evaluate the outcomes of pediatric nasal septal surgery.
