Children with chronic sinusitis have predominance of CD4+ cells in the sinus mucosa as compared with normal sphenoid tissue. This contrasts with published results in adults with chromic sinusitis, in whom CD8+ cells predominate in nasal polyps and the submucosa, possibly reflecting a difference in the immunologic response of children and adults.
