Hypoplastic Mastoid Air Cell Treatment
Nasal Sinus X-rays : The densities are either an active infection in the sinuses or most likely residual chronic inflammation from previous infections. The findings do not sound serious unless severe acute pain and fever is present. The best option is to review the radiographic evaluation with the ordering physician or an ENT specialist. ...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

Reason for MRI?: If this was supposed to be an MRI of the brain then, the read of the sinuses is a common "red herring" that radiologists always tend to comment on but rarely do the comments make it into the annals of CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE nor do they ever have to do with the initial reason for which the scan was obtained. Bottom line is probably of no importance. But check with your doctor or neurologist. ...Read more
Wha does this mean, soft tissue densities within mastoid cells, middle ear cavity and sphenoid sinus and calcific density in brain paren occipital reg?
Nonspecific : Soft tissue densities in the normally air filled mastoid, middle ear and sinus cavities indicates there is some type of chronic, long term inflammation in those areas. It could indicate chronic infection, as well. It depends on your clinical condition and how severe those findings are to really give you an idea of what this means to you. The brain finding is not uncommon, discuss with doctor. ...Read more
What does near complete opacification of the right mastoid air cell. With soft tissue fullness of the epitympanum, mesotympanum, and hypotympanum incl?
Tympanomastoiditis: These are the findings of a CT scan of the mastoid bone. The radiologist is detecting inflammation in the mastoid and the middle ear. Inflammation means there is swelling of the mucous membrane of the mastoid bone and middle ear. The epitympanum, mesotympanum, and hypotympanum correspond to the upper, middle, and lower regions of the middle ear. You need to see an ENT doctor and may need surgery. ...Read more

If no symptoms....: Probably nothing to worry about. Many patients have some mucosal thickening or a small amount of fluid in 1 or more of the sinuses or mastoid air cells. However, if there is pressure, pain or tenderness over the sinuses or around/behind an ear, a fever or foul smelling, bloody or purulent nasal secretions, a sinus infection or mastoiditis is a concern. Please see your doctor. ...Read more

CT mild mucosal thickening of the posterior ethmoidal air cells, clear other scanned paranasal sinuses, patent both ostiomeatal units, intact bony boundaries. That means? I have random headaches
'Severe mucosal thickening present involving left frontal sinus, left anterior ethmoid air cells' plus other infect.,do I need surgery or antibiotics?
Controversial: some will recommend surgery for recurrent sinus infection before trying less invasive solutions. you describe findings from a ct scan, but these describe inflammation of the sinus mucosa and infection is but one potential cause. Infections should be treated (sometimes with antibiotics), but the inflammation or anything predisposing the sinus to becoming infected/inflamed should be addressed ...Read more
Does monoclonal b-cell lymphocytosis make the patient more vulnerable to infections, e.G., hypostatic pneumonia? Is monoclonal b-cell lymphocytosis capable of transforming into acute leukemia?
No infections in MBL: The definition of mbl is an elevated lymphocyte count with a lack of symptoms or complications. It can transform into cll (chronic lymphocytic leukemia), in which low immunoglobulins and the abnormal b lymphocytes can indeed cause increased infections. Neither of these has been associated with transformation to acute leukemia, although cll can become an aggressive lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
