Can children have a deviated septum?

A Answers (1)

  • Anyone can have a deviated septum and that includes children. In fact, there are only two ways to get a deviated septum. You are either born with one or it is caused by an injury. Children born with a deviated septum often have trouble breathing and they also tend to breathe loudly. The good news is that a deviated septum can usually be fixed with surgery.
