Deviated Septum in Children

  • Overview

    A deviated septum occurs where there's an abnormal shape to the wall that divides your child's two nostrils.

    • A septum is a wall that divides two cavities. In the nose, the septum is made of cartilage, and divides the nose into two separate chambers (right and left).
    • A deviated septum may cause problems with proper breathing or nasal discharge.

    A team of specialists

    The Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement at Boston Children's Hospital can provide comprehensive care for your child's deviated septum. The team will perform a diagnosis, propose a surgical treatment and follow up to make sure your child is recovering well.
