MARTINEZ CAMPOS, L. et al. Consensus document on the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of sinusitis. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.59, pp.203-218. ISSN 1139-7632.

The Spanish National Consensus (Spanish Society of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Spanish Association of Primary Care Pediatrics, Spanish Society of Pediatric Outpatient and Primary Care, Spanish Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Cervical-Facial Pathology) on Sinusitisis presented. Rhinosinusitis is a difficult to diagnose and often unrecognised disease. The document discusses the aetiology, the clinical signs and symptoms, and the diagnostic criteria. Aproposal for treatment is made based on the epidemiological situation in our country. Oral amoxicillin is the treatment of choice (80 mg/kg/day divided every 8 hours). Alternative treatment is proposed in special cases and when amoxicillin is not sufficient. The main complications are reviewed.

Keywords : Sinusitis; Rhinosinusitis; Amoxiciline; Diagnosis; Treatment.
