What diffuse disease of the ethmoid cells is agin noted without change probably related to the polyposis means?

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
