Abstract: For children, antibiotics do not appear to improve short-term (3-6 weeks) or long-term (3 months) outcomes of chronic rhinosinusitis (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, randomized controlled trials). No adequate placebo-controlled trials have been performed in adults. Two consensus statements report that 10 to 21 days of antibiotics active against organisms producing beta-lactamase might be beneficial in some cases (SOR: C).
