Mucoperiosteal Thickening Of The Maxillary Sinuses
Sinuses are air filled spaces in the head that have several proposed functions: 1. They serve as shock absorbers in cases of head trauma 2. Lighten the skull 3. Humidify and filter the air while also producing mucus 4. Play a role in vocal resonance. The head contains 4 paired sinus cavities: maxillaries (cheek) under the eyes, ethmoids (between the eyes), frontals (above ...Read more

Sinusitis with polyp: Your CT shows you have a sinus infection with polyps. Follow up with the doctor who ordered your test for clinical correlation. Always the best person to interpret any testing is the person who ordered it. They have all you history, exam, etc. Read more
Not related: The concussion specifically would affect the brain. Some of the potential findings include micro-hemorrhages and diffuse axonal injury. The mucosal thickening has to do with the inflammation of the sinuses. If you struck your nose or face during the injury, these findings may be from the irritation to the nose/sinues.

Does maxillary sinusitis cause vertigo? Is vertigo ever caused by sinusitis of the maxillary sinuses?
Maybe: A bad sinus infection can inflammation of the upper airway which includes the eustachian tube. This will lead to inadequate opening of the eustachian tube which then cause negative pressure in the middle ear space, which can affect the inner ear and balance center, ultimately causing vertigo. Although this can happen, this is not a common presentation of sinusitis. An ENT evaluation will help. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have two "small" sinus polyps of the each maxillary sinuses. When should I consider having surgery? What's the likelihood of recurrence?
See Immunologist: Nasal polyps should be evaluated for underlying potential causes (disease, medication effect, etc) and treated with medication or possibly even using procedures to decrease the activity of certain metabolic pathways; or by avoidance of contributing factors. An Allergist/Immunologist may be best equipped to perform this work-up. Polyps usually return after they have been removed surgically. Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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
Daily headache. MRI showed bilateral mucous retention cysts or polyps within the maxillary sinuses. Could this be cause? Worth seeing otolaryngologist?
Ct results: minor mucosal changes in the paranasal sinuses seen in the maxillary sinus regions with mucous retention cysts. Possible cause?
Not to worry: I see a fair proportion of my patients demonstrating these in their sinuses as an incidental finding on ct scan. They very rarely require any sort of surgical intervention and should be differentiated from a mucocele (which are different. Allergies, sinusitis, mucosal irritation lead to these fluid filled "sacs". Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
