Sphenoid/paranasal/maxillary sinus-mild inflammatory mucosal thickening. Poly in maxillry sinus.  What does it mean?  On biaxin for 14 days.

Sinusitis: What it means is that you have sinus inflammation. It sounds as if you have had a cat scan. My personal feeling is that biaxin is not my drug of choice. If you are asymptomatic, steroids might help to resolve the inflammation which is your immune system trying to cure the virus or allergen that might be causing the sinusitis. If you are asymptomatic, you do not need treatment. ...Read more

Hello Dr, I had nosal dripping, my MRI shows "Right Maxillary sinus mucosal thickening" & "deviation of nasal septum to right" what does this mean?

Sinusitis: You have thickening of the right maxillary sinus due to inflammation, likely infection in the sinus. Your nasal septum is the part that divides the two sides of your nose. When deviated it can cause excessive mucosal thickening and difficulty breathing, especially at night. I recommend you use Neil Med Sinus rinse as directed twice a day and consult an ENT specialist. ...Read more

I am having dry cough from 3 month, now P.N.S xray showed that mucosal thickening noted in maxillary sinus and frontal sinus appear hypoplastic. help?

Maybe: People with chronic sinusitis often have a persisting cough as one of their main, or only, symptoms. The mucosal thickening of the maxillary sinus is often indicative of chronic sinusitis. The hypo plastic frontal sinus just didn't develop fully and likely has nothing to do with your cough. I would recommend consultation with ENT physician. Medications and further imaging may be necessary. ...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 more
