Have bilateral concha bullosa on left, hypertrophied right inferior turbinate, deviated nasal septum.2 swollen nodes on front nd bck of right ear. Why?

Have bilateral concha bullosa on left, hypertrophied right inferior turbinate, deviated nasal septum.2 swollen nodes on front nd bck of right ear. Why?

Anatomy: Concha bullosae are enlarged middle turbinates, which is a variant type of anatomy, causing nasal obstruction. Enlarged inferior turbinates also cause difficulty breathing. A deviated septum is a crooked divider between the right and left nostrils, also causing difficulty breathing. Swollen nodes might be a reaction to a recent or chronic infection. See an otolaryngologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Max sinus due to deviated septum and concha bullosa. I also have facial pain. Infected?

Maybe, maybe not: The deviated septum and concha bullosa could increase the risk of a maxillary sinus infection. Other than facial pain, you should also have colored nasal drainage and nasal congestion greater than 10 days to make the diagnosis of a bacterial sinus infection. Or if you had these symptoms, became better and then worsened, then you would also have an infection. ...Read more

Most: Most changes in smell following intranasal surgery are self-limiting and related to swelling of the nasal mucosa which can impair odorant contact with the olfactory nerves. The middle turbinate attaches to the cribriform plate, through which the olfactory fibers pass. The "crista" may be a misdictation in the or report as the only one I'm aware of is the crista galli, which is an intracranial boney projection above the cribriform plate to which the falx cerebri attaches. It seems improbable this was fractured. As long as you are not experiencing clear fluid drainage from the nose, having unexplained headaches, fever, or neck stiffness, there is probably not much reason for concern here. A trial of topical nasal steroids (i.e., flonase) woulnd't be an unreasonable initial approach. ...Read more

Can I use xlear nasal spray whilst I am using beconase steroid nasal spray. Am suffering chronic sinusitis due to concha bullosa : (?

Yes: Beconase (beclomethasone) is an intranasal steroid to suppress the inflammation in your nose and the xlear is likely a decongestant. Are you seeing an ent? If not, you might want to get those concha bullosas removed or at least consider balloon angioplasty. I would also recommend increasing the Beconase (beclomethasone) to 2 sprays to each nostril twice daily for 2 weeks. ...Read more

Got nose CT scanned with sinus, it shows left concha bullosa and cyst in right sinus. I have post nasal drip. Are these symptomps of sinusitis?

Possible: A concha bullosa is an air containing middle turbinate (a normal structure in the lateral wall of the nose. This may be a normal anatomical variant unless the cat scan demonstrates it is opaque (filled with mucus). Depending of the size of the cyst in the sinus, probably maxillary), I would definitely call this a rhino-sinusitis. Symptoms are complaints. Your statement is x-ray findings. ...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
