SAN DIEGO — Bacterial densities of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae increased during episodes of acute bacterial sinusitis, according to data presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting.

In an effort to characterize viral infections that lead to sinusitis following upper respiratory infection, Gregory P. DeMuri, MD, of the University of Wisconsin, and colleagues assessed 202 children who exhibited symptoms of upper respiratory infection between 2012 and 2014. Nasal washes were conducted at onset of infection and during recovery.
