Non-invasive routes of administration of drugs are attractive in paediatric populations. The nose, eye and ear offer opportunities for drug delivery for localized (and systemic) treatment. This chapter considers anatomical and physiological differences in children compared to adults such that delivery of medicines at these sites is safe and efficacious. In addition the benefits and limitations of formulations used at these sites are discussed with particular relevance for the paediatric population.
