Excerpt from Archives of Pediatrics, Vol. 30: A Monthly Journal Devoted to the Diseases of Infants and Children; January to December, 1913
That sinusitis occurs much more frequently in children than is generally considered cannot be doubted, and this statement does not apply only to the Older child, but also in many instances to the small child and infant. From a careful study Of the early anatomic development Of the sinuses, it seems probable that many cases Of meningitis are the result of unrecognized inﬂammation Of some Of the sinuses, as the symptoms Of sinusitis are more or less Obscure in children. That this Should be so, can readily be appreciated from the structure Of these parts at an early age, as there is a great variation in both their Size and shape; they are surrounded by much softer bone than at a later period Of life.
