HIGHLY PREVALENT DISEASE Chronic sinusitis is one of the most prevalent chronic conditions among adults in the U.S. The prevalence rates vary by source from approximately 5%-15% of the adult population. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that chronic sinusitis occurs in approximately 12% of the U.S. adult (18 years and older) population. In 2015, there were an estimated 29 million adult chronic sinusitis patients in the U.S. There were approximately six million pediatric chronic sinusitis patients in the U.S. in 2015. While some clinicians believe pediatric chronic sinusitis patients should be left untreated, clinical studies have shown that pediatric patients with chronic sinusitis have a significantly reduced quality of life as compared to selected other diseases.
