Background /Objectives: To study 30 cases of patients of chronic adenoiditis with adenoid facies and refractory chronic rhinosinusitis managed by endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy.

Materials and method: 7 cases of adenoid facies and 23 cases of chronic refractory rhinosinusitis with adenoiditis were managed by endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy during the study period of 12 months from August 2012 to July 2013.

Result: endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy proves to be more effective in managing adenoid facies and chronic refractory rhinosinusitis with adenoid hyperplasia.

Conclusion: visualization of the adenoid mass using endoscope helps complete removal of the diseased adenoids. Endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy is treatment of choice in adenoid facies and chronic refractory rhinosinusitis with adenoid hyperplasia and more effective than conventional adenoidectomy.

Key words: Adenoid facies, adenoidectomy, endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy
