Vegetations are lymphoid tissues that develop during the first year of life, acting as a barrier against microbes that enter through the nose.
Some situations of hypertrophy (large vegetations), which can cause respiratory discomfort or infection, call for early surgery.

Performed under general anesthesia, the removal of vegetations is rapid (approximately 15 minutes) and requires only a few hours of hospitalization.
