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 more

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. ...Read more

Mucosal thickening in the right great than left maxillary & sphenoid sinuses with scattered mucosal disease in ethmoid air cells. What's this mean?

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
