Object: We aimed to find out the influences of adenoid hypertrophy on pediatric chronic rhinitis and evaluate the effect for pediatric chronic rhinitis with adenoidectomy. Subjective: We studied is 105 with adenoid hypertrophy among 170 of children with chronic rhinitis. Method: We analyzed the disease associated with chronic rhinitis and compared the group with adenoidectomy to the group with conservative treatment. Results: The mean therapy duration and the recurrence rate were 15.3±3.2D and 12 patients (19.3%) in study group, and 27.4±5.3d, 33patients (76.3%) in control group. The success rate of treatment was 60(96.8%) in study group and 35(81.4%) in control group. Conclusion:The adenoid hypertrophy is associated the child chronic rhinitis. The success rate of treatment, the therapy duration and the recurrent rate were significant differences than the control group.
