Abstract

Key Points: The most common cause of epistaxis in the-pediatric population is digital trauma. Behavioral, environmental, congenital, hereditary, systemic, and neoplastic conditions may contribute to epistaxis in this population. History and physical examination is the mainstay of diagnosis. Taking care to allay patient anxiety can improve yield of the physical examination.
