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

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.

Symptoms?: Why was the MRI done? If you are having nasal obstruction or obstructive sleep apnea, your ENT doc may recommend removal of the adenoids.

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
