-Intranasal budesonide therapy may lead to improved symptoms and sleep study findings in children with mild obstructive sleep apnea with and without allergic rhinitis that would not be treated with T&A. The aim of the study is to conduct a randomized double blind cross-over trial comparing the effect of once a day intranasal budesonide therapy vs. placebo in children with mild sleep apnea that would not be candidates for T&A.
