Can anyone interpret me the result from paranasal sinus CT scan?

I had CT scan of my paranasal sinus & waiting to see my doctor to report the findings. The impression on the result is:

Pansinusitis with obstructed left frontal and right sphenoid outflow tracts
Leftward nasal septal deviation with a bony spur
Congested nasal turbinates, bilateral

Is this something serious or not to worry about?
I'm having headaches, congestion & slight fever that disrupt my work. and i find it hard to sleep in the evening.

Nothing serious, no. Im going to assume you have a lot of stuffiness and headaches though right? And im sure no sinus medicines work, or if they do they don't work for very long. So most likely the doctor will suggest that you have sinus surgery to "clean" everything out and fix your septal deviation.  (+ info)

Why is mastoiditis potentially more dangerous than a paranasal sinus infection?


The mastoid bone is very porous, and it may be near-impossible to dislodge an infection. And since it's part of the skull, it's very near the brain.  (+ info)

Can anyone tell me exactly what a paranasal sinus cyst is and/or should I be concerned?

Paranasal Sinus Disease?

Hubby went in for his annual CT scans (follow up after malignant melanoma removal 6 yrs ago) last week. Today we recieved the results, which were all-in-all good. The only "remarkable" thing was "Fairly extensive paranasal disease noted. What exactly is paranasal sinus disease? Under "IMPRESSION:" on the CT report, clinical correlation is recommended. Does this mean I need to get him into an ENT to check this out? Is this anything to be concerned about?


I don't know. A pessimist would think it meant that the melanoma was extensively in his sinuses. Maybe in fact he has a sinus infection. Ask the oncologist!  (+ info)

What can be done about frontal sinus hypoplasia?

I have significant paranasal sinusitis and frontal sinus hypoplasia. What can be done, I tried searching the web only to find that hypoplasia means that the frontal sinuses are underdeveloped. I can't get an appointment with an E.N.T. doctor because of insurance, could anyone please tell me what they would do if I could go.

Whether it's acute or chronic (lasting more than 8-12 weeks) sinusitis, treatment should be aimed at sinus drainage and curing any infection. Nasal sprays, such as phenylephrine, can be used for a limited time to constrict the blood vessels; similar drugs taken by mouth are less effective. Some antibiotics can be taken, but since you can't go to the doctor, then you can't do that one. Nasal corticosteroid sprays and corticosteroid tablets can also be taken to help reduce inflammation in the mucous membranes.  (+ info)

Some people with a deficit of IA exhibit recurrent paranasal sinus and respiratory tract infections. Explain?

it is not "IA"
it is IgA
it is not "IA"
it is IgA
it is not "IA"
it is IgA
it is not "IA"
it is IgA
it is not "IA"
it is IgA

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is an antibody playing a critical role in mucosal immunity. More IgA is produced in mucosal linings than all other types of antibody combined. In its secretory form, it is the main immunoglobulin found in mucous secretions, including tears, saliva, colostrum, intestinal juice, vaginal fluid and secretions from the prostate and respiratory epithelium. Because it is resistant to degradation by enzymes, secretory IgA can survive in harsh environments such as the digestive and respiratory tracts, to provide protection against microbes that multiply in body secretions.
Because the respiratory tract and sinus cavities are mucosal entities, the infections manifest here.  (+ info)

What is the most common sinus affected in sinusitis?

I assume its Nasal, am I correct?, then my next question is what is the most affected paranasal sinus affected? (My guess is maxillary....) Anyone know for sure about the above two questions? Thanks so much.

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses....
Maxillary sinusitis - can cause pain or pressure in the maxillary (cheek) area (e.g., toothache, headache)
Frontal sinusitis - can cause pain or pressure in the frontal sinus cavity (located behind/above eyes), headache
Ethmoid sinusitis - can cause pain or pressure pain between/behind eyes, headache
Sphenoid sinusitis - can cause pain or pressure behind the eyes, but often refers to the vertex of the head


Bacteria are the most common direct cause of acute sinusitis
The maxillary sinuses (behind the cheekbones) are the most common sites.
The ethmoid sinuses (between the eyes) are the second most common sites affected by colds.
The frontal (behind the forehead) and sphenoid (behind the eyes) sinuses are involved in the balance of cold-related cases (about a third).


Although inflammation in any of the sinuses can lead to blockade of the sinus ostia, the most commonly involved sinuses in both acute and chronic sinusitis are the maxillary and the anterior ethmoid sinus.

How do I treat a presistent sinus infection without antibiotics ?

I have had one for 7 years now , I have been treated by G.Ps. and by an E.N.T. specialist. . I have had repeated long doses of antibiotics lke amoxycillin but no avail.I have also had a scan of my paranasal sinuses. Doctors I have seen since have told they are not willing to prescribe anything becasue although the infection makes ny breath smell , it is not caused by pathogens.

Try mixing 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar to 8 oz water twice a day and drink.Its not as bad as it sounds and helped with mine.  (+ info)
