Background /Objectives: Hypertrophied adenoids are the most common cause of refractory sinusitis in paediatric age. We study 42 cases of patients of chronic adenoiditis with adenoid facies and refractory chronic rhinosinusitis managed by endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy (EAA) and conventional adenoidectomy (CA). Materials and method: 42 cases of chronic refractory sinusitis with adenoid facies secondary to hypertrophied adenoids were randomized into 2 groups during the study period of 12 months from August 2012 to July 2013. Group A (n=21) underwent endoscope assisted adenoidectomy and Group B(n=21) underwent conventional adenoidectomy.
