The subject of sleep apnea syndrome and its correlations with adenotonsillar hypertrophy has been stirring greater interest among pediatricians, neurologists and otolaryngologists.New investigators, as well as those more experienced, may benefit from the published recommendations from the symposium. The goal is to continue to advance our understanding of epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of tonsil-associated disorders and various upper respiratory tract infections such as otitis media and rhinosinusitis.

Moreover, in the era of drug-resistant microbes we should exert more effort of developing powerful and effective mucosal vaccines against pathogens in upper airways.
