Answer

A pediatric otolaryngologist should be notified first, especially if medical therapy has failed or if the origin or diagnosis of the underlying pathology of the nasal polyp is unknown.

Consider consultation with a pulmonary specialist when benign nasal polyps are identified because they could result from asthma, allergy, or CF. Patients with these diseases often have associated pulmonary problems.
