Ethmoid Air Cell Disease
Mucosal thickening in the right great than left maxillary & sphenoid sinuses with scattered mucosal disease in ethmoid air cells. What's this mean?
Maybe nothing: The fact that you have scattered mucosal thickening (not necessarily disease) in the sinuses does not necessarily equate to disease. Do you have yellow-green nasal discharge, post nasal discharge, pain or pressure in the face or top of the head? These are the major symptoms of rhino-sinusitis. In other words, are you feeling ill? Check with an ENT doctor. ...Read more
What diffuse disease of the ethmoid cells is agin noted without change probably related to the polyposis means?
Chronic sinusitis: I assume this refers to the radiologist's interpretation of a ct scan of the sinuses. The ethmoid sinuses are located between the eyes and diffuse disease refers to thickening of tissue within the entire sinus. The thickened tissue generally represents chronic sinus infection although polyps can also cause this. The radiologist sees masses in the nose that look like polyps. ...Read more
Seen in my MRI result is a 0.5 x 0.5 CM bright t2w signal focus is noted within a left ethmoid air cell. What is it, please?
See your doctor: This problem mandates a real-time (face-to-face) meeting with a doctor. A history has to be taken along with a examination as well as labs and other tests. Only after all this will your doctor be in a position to tell you what's wrong and what needs to be done to help you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My MRI shows severe mucoperiosteal thickening in the right ethmoid air cell. Could this be causing severe sinus headaches?
Probably nothing: The radiologist probably is referring to minimal sinus fluid, but to be sure you should ask him/her directly ...Read more
"There is mucosal thickening in the maxillary and ethmoid air cells as well as in the mastoids bilaterally" this was in my 2 1/2 year old sons MRI?
Had an MRI done everything normal mostly except mild ethmoid air cell and bilateral maxillary sinus thickening but don't get sinus headaches explain?
Plz explain. Minimal to mild chronic appearing paranasal sinus inflammatory changes. Mildly increased ethmoid air cells. No acute sinusitis or osseous changes.
Minor Musocal thickening within the left frontal sinus, the ethmoid air cells and right maxillary atrium found in MRI scan, have bad frontal headaches?
Mucosal thickening: What you are describing is completely normal with incidental finding of mucosal thickening on MRI. It is very common to see mild sinus mucosal thickening on MRI. It is not diagnostic of sinus infection or sinus obstruction. The cause of your headache is unlikely to be related to your sinuses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
CT showed - mild thickening in the bilateral ethmoid air cells and right sphenoid sinus. No symptoms except mostly constant watery nose?
Mri showed sinusitis ethmoid air cells and mucosal thickening frontal as well as sphenoid sinuses. I been dealing with front headaches and eye pain.
MRI very sensitive: Just because you have something in the sinus, it does not mean it is the cause of your symptoms. Retention cysts are common. Does light or sound bother you when you have the headache? Do you have visual changes before the headache comes? If so you may have migraine allergies can also have these MRI findings. ...Read more
Ct results1mild mucosal thickening involving the ethmoid air cells and small mucous retention in the left maxillary sinus.2small concha bullosa bilaterally without ostiomeatal stenosis. Please explain?
Sinus CT: Concha bullosa are common anatomic variants of bones in the nasal cavity. When they are large, they can obstruct the sinus drainage pathway and predispose to sinusitis. When small, usually of no concern. Small mucus retention cysts and mild mucosal thickening may be related to mild chronic sinusitis. However, these mild findings may not even cause noticeable symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Between the eyes: The ethmoid sinuses are between the eyes and are commonly the result of viral and or bacterial infections starting in the nose. The answer to your question is the ethmoid sinuses are infected and the lining membrane is thickened. The only method to prove your diagnosis is with a cat scan of the sinuses. ...Read more
