2.Allergic rhino laryngitis, CT scan report:mild mucosal  thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.Still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing: In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on ct scan. That's good news... You don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! if 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing. ...Read more

Allergic rhinitis: Try OTC antihistamines such as allegra or zyrtec , together with nasal corticosteroid spray(Nasacort, is now over the counter). Of course avoidance of allergens is a must if possible( cat , carpet, pollen etc). If not better , go to your PCP if you can take singulair too. ...Read more

Brain mri- moderate mucosal wall thickening involving bilateral maxillary and ethmoid sinuses & non specific demyelinating process. Possibly related?

Probably not.: Sinus finding is likely due to acute or chronic sinusitis. More concerning is the demyelinating process. You need to see a neurologist. ...Read more

Mri showed 'mucosal thickening in maxillary sinuses' after concussion, what does this mean?

Dr. Jefferson Chen
Board Certified, Neurosurgery

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. ...Read more

My paranasal sinuses test show:nasal septum is  deviated, nasal turbinates are prominent and both maxillary sinuses shows mucosal thickening sinusitis?

Deviated septum: a deviated septum can be corrected surgically to bring the septum to the midline. If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist. ...Read more

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 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. 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

Sinusitis: Yes, sinusitis can involve multiple sinuses. See your nearest ENT doctor to discuss this problem. I assume that you already have since you have had a CT of your sinuses ordered by someone. ...Read more
