Rhinitis is a common global disorder, which impacts on the quality of life of the sufferer and caregivers. We searched the electronic database PubMed for preclinical as well as clinical controlled trials reporting various outcomes, developments as well as latest perspectives with regard to management of pediatric rhinitis. It was observed clearly that multiple factors are responsible for its prevalence. The important ones are genetic factors, environmental factors, role of allergens, viral attacks and possible effects of nutrition. The present review article summarizes the current knowledge on the early childhood rhinitis; in particular, on the prevalence rates, phenotypes, associated co morbidities, and risk factors.


KEY WORDS: Rhinitis - Child - Risk factors
