Abstract

Severity of radiographic sinus disease on pre-BMT CT scans was noted to correlate with clinical and radiographic sinusitis later in the post-BMT course, and was associated with a trend toward decreased survival. Pre-BMT CT scans may be useful in determining which children need early and more aggressive intervention for clinical sinusitis post-BMT.
