Purpose: This study aims to discuss clinical manifestations of non-allergic rhinitis (non-allergic rhinitis, NAR) children patients aged 15 years old or younger and their inducement, comorbid diseases, family medical history and quality of life and to analyze clinical characteristics of children of different age groups so as to provide clinical evidence for the improvement of NAR children patients’ comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. Method: Questionnaires were issued to 74 children patients diagnosed with NAR between June, 2014 and June, 2015 and all of them had the specialized examination of nasal cavity. The standardized 100-point visual analogue scale (VAS) was used as the symptoms survey scale to evaluate the severity of symptoms. Those patients surveyed were divided into two groups: Group A of preschool children under 6 years old and Group B of school-age children under 15 years old. Lateral comparison was done for severity of symptoms of single sample so as to reduce the subjective factors. After that, symptom characteristics of both groups were compared and SPSS 13.0 was also used to finish the statistical analysis. Results: The occurrence rate of sneezing, nasal mucus, nasal obstruction and nasal blockage of NAR children patients was 86.49%, 84.60%, 91.20% and 73.65% respectively. The most serious symptom of children of Group A was nasal obstruction and its occurrence rate was higher than that of Group B. The difference had statistical significance (x2=19.194, P<0.05). These two groups had no significant difference in terms of sneezing and nasal blockage (x2=0.474, x2=0.048, P>0.05). The most serious symptom of children of Group B was nasal mucus and its occurrence rate was higher than that of Group A. The difference had statistical significance (x2=16.92, P<0.05). Conclusion: Characteristics of NAR clinical symptoms of children under 6 years old (including 6 years old) and children above 6 years old were different. The acquisition of concomitant symptoms, inducements and other clinical data of children NAR can provide a reference for improving the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment level of children NAR.
