Ethmoid Sinus Mucosal Disease
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.
In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...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.See 1 more doctor answer
I was diagnosed with ethmoid sinus disease by CT scan. I was also dx with high blood pressure. Started Bystolic (nebivolol) one week ago. Can this sinus condition?
Ethmoid Sinusitis: Hello, the CT shows that you have sinusitis which has many causes however a sinusitis directly resulting from bystolic (nebivolol) BP medication I don't think has been reported. Things you can do to help resolve the sinusitis is saline sinus rinse 2x/day BEFORE using an over the counter nasal steroid spray like Nasacort, Flonase or Rhinacort. I usually recommend ibuprofen as well. If no improvement, see ENT.

Depends: Its sounds although you have intractable sinus disease. Given your prior hx: bilateral medial turbinectomies. Resection of medial walls, of both maxillary sinuses, and a partial ethmoidectony; you might need surgical intervention but I would ask your physician.
MRI says, minor mucosal disease in the sphenoid sinus. Minor sphenoid sinus mucosal thickening. Should I be concerned?
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.
