Special Issue "Pediatric Rhinosinusitis and Asthma"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
Paediatric rhinosinusitis is frequently encountered in clinical practice and asthma may coexist in many cases. These conditions probably share common underlining pathophysiological mechanisms mediated by eosinophilic and T-helper 2 inflammatory pathways, and it is well known that an impairment in the nasosinusal homeostasis predisposes to acute exacerbation of asthmatic disease. However, the complex link between the upper and the lower airways is not completely understood, and the optimal management of children with rhinosinusitis and asthma requires a coordinated multidisciplinary approach that includes of paediatric, otorhinolaryngological, and allergology consultations.
For an upcoming Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine (PubMed indexed), we invite investigators to contribute with review articles focused on discussing the relationship between rhinosinusitis and asthma in children, as well as the more proper diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in these patients. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Microbiological aspects of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis
- The link between paediatric rhinosinusitis and asthma
- Nitric oxide and biological mediators in paediatric rhinosinusitis and asthma
- The allergology basis of paediatric rhinosinusitis and asthma
- Imaging in the diagnostic management of paediatric rhinosinusitis
- Medical treatment of paediatric rhinosinusitis
- Surgical treatment paediatric rhinosinusitis
- Chronic rhinosinusitis in children with systemic disease

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
