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 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.

It's usually diagnosed with a ct scan. ...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?
Maybe nothing: The fact that you have scattered mucosal thickening (not necessarily disease) in the sinuses does not necessarily equate to disease.
