What are the differences in symptoms between adults and infants with epistaxial cysts?

Adults may have no obvious symptoms when the cyst is small, and may have a foreign body sensation in the throat or even difficulty breathing when it is larger. In infants and young children, the pharyngeal cavity is narrower and even when the cyst is not too large, the symptoms are obvious and often include hoarseness, weak crying, breathlessness and breath-holding, wheezing and intermittent crying during feeding.
