Disclaimer

can a rear-end collision cause any type of sinus problem? what about sinuses and hemorrhages? 1st ct (10/14) showed abnormal sphenoid sinus layering; repeat ct (1/15) says paranasal sinuses: normal

Unclear: certainly a nasal injury can cause problems. Bumping one's nose or having an airbag hit it is a common cause of nasal injuries/sinus problems but would expect to see an injury if it is there.
