Hi. If on CT of head there is a finding of maxillary and ethmoid sinusitis, does it still need treatment? Patient is asymptomatic. Thank you

In brief: No
I wouldn't. Why put yourself at risk of side effects from antibiotics for something that isn't doing anything to you.

Treat the patient not the x-ray but observation is necessary as well. Some bad things do not elicit pain.
