Causes Of Maxillary Hypoplasia
Multifactorial.: Genetic, environmental, infectious, metabolic reasons or even developmental accidents can cause birth defects. Taking Folic Acid at 1-5 mg daily throughout your reproductive life could prevent 95% of neural tube defects and up to 75% of cardiac defects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blockage of sinus: The extremely narrow space allowing air to enter the maxillary sinus (sinus under the eye) and allow drainage from that sinus is called the infundibulum. Opacification of that narrow channel is the first phase of acute inflammation of that sinus. If this blockage becomes chronic, a rhinologic surgeon can open that passage and allow resolution of problem. ...Read more
Can a Mucous Retention Cyst in the inferior aspect of the left max sinus cause unilateral ptosis? CT also shows thickening of several ethmoid air cell
No: No, very unlikely. Mucous retention cysts in the sinuses are very common. The ethmoid thickening is also unlikely to cause the issue. I would look for another reason for the ptosis. ...Read more
Unknown: The heart is a very complex organ. We still do not fully understand how the normal heart develops in the fetus. We understand even less about what causes the heart to develop abnormally. It is likely that there are multiple genetic and environmental factors that contribute to abnormal cardiac development. ...Read more
What is extensive opacification of the left sphenoid sinus and polypoid mucosial thickening in maxialary sinuses bilateraly?
Sinusitis: A fluid level in your sinus is usually a sign of an infection with "pus" likely. I often treat this with antibiotics and a steroid nose spray for 2-4 weeks and repeat the CT scan.

The frontal sinuses are well-developed. There is mild mucosal thickening involving the inferior aspect of the bilateral frontal sinuses.
What's the question?: You have given us a statement, not a question. I assume you want to know what the radiological diagnosis means. In my experience, when a radiologist states mild mucosal thickening in any sinus, it is probably not of much clinical significance. Are you symptomatic, are other sinuses involved, do you have headaches, and finally are you ill? We need to know these things to help you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None are common: The vast majority of thymic carcinomas of all sorts "just happen", without any identifiable risk factors.

Some of them are very curable while others are tough; i wish you luck. ...Read more

Run in families: Although it is not entirely clear as to what causes aneurysms, there is a definite familial predisposition to their development. If a parent or sibling has or have had an aneurysm, it is important to be checked. This can be done simply and easily with an ultrasound. Contact a vascular surgeon and have the test done at an icavl accredited vascular laboratory. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Causes of isolated right lateral ventricular of brain enlargement presenting with convulsion in a adult diabetic male?
Munro doctrine: Blockage of the opening of lateral ventricle into third ventricle (foramen of munro) has occurred. Rarely this can be due to migration of choroid plexus, into the opening. However certain benign tumors and cysts can also block this. Also brain tumors adjacent to the structure may blockade it. Sudden ventricular distention might cause seizure but low blood sugar is a more frequent cause. ...Read more

If one does not exist, it is unlikely to develop. http://thejns.org/doi/abs/10.3171/jns.1971.35.5.0601 Association does not prove causality, but we don't understand the embryology well enough to know the causes of aneurysms. ...Read more
