Description of Sinuses
The sinuses are hollow cavities in the bones around the nose. Each sinus has an opening into the nose for the free exchange of air and mucus, and each is joined with the nasal passages by a continuous mucous membrane lining. Anything that causes inflammation in the nose, such as a cold or an allergy, can also result in swelling in the sinuses.

URL of this page: Sinusitis means your sinuses are infected or inflamed. Your sinuses are hollow air spaces within the bones surrounding the nose. They produce mucus, which drains into the nose. If your nose is swollen, this can block the sinuses and cause pain and infection. Sinusitis can be acute, lasting for less than four weeks, or chronic, lasting much longer. Acute sinusitis often starts as a cold, which then turns into a bacterial infection. Allergies, pollutants, nasal problems and certain diseases can also cause sinusitis. Symptoms of sinusitis can include fever, weakness, fatigue, cough and congestion. There may also be mucus drainage in the back of the throat, called postnasal drip. Treatments include antibiotics, decongestants and pain relievers. Using heat pads on the inflamed area, saline nasal sprays and vaporizers can also help.

Introduction to Sinusitis
Sinusitis affects about 14% of the population. Its direct medical costs amount to billions of dollars annually. Indirectly, its cost is greatly magnified by the staggering amount of lost hours of work or school. Current methods of cost analysis indicate that sinusitis usurps nearly 1% or the entire Gross National Product. Clinically, it is defined by physicians as a condition which is manifested by an inflammation involving the muscous membranes of the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses. The secretions found in these passages are related to the pathologic changes in both the surrounding bone and tissue. Sinusitis is classified as:
Acute Sinusitis
Acute Sinusitis is sudden in onset and lasts up to 4 weeks. The symptoms resolve completely and, once the disease has been treated, antibiotics are no longer needed. A strong history consistent with acute Sinusitis includes two or more major factors or one major and two minor factors. However, the finding of nasal purulence is a strong indicator of an accurate diagnosis. A suggestive history for which acute Sinusitis should be included in the differential diagnosis includes one major factor or two or more minor factors. In the absence of other nasal factors, fever or pain alone does not constitute a strong history. Severe, prolonged, or worsening infections may be associated with a nonviral element. Factors suggesting acute bacterial Sinusitis are the worsening of symptoms after 5 days, the persistence of symptoms for more than 10 days, or the presence of symptoms out of proportion to those typically associated with a viral (upper respiratory) infection.

Sinusitis refers to inflammation of the sinuses that occurs with a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection. See also: Chronic sinusitis
The sinuses are air-filled spaces in the skull (behind the forehead, nasal bones, cheeks, and eyes) that are lined with mucus membranes. Healthy sinuses contain no bacteria or other germs. Usually, mucus is able to drain out and air is able to circulate. When the sinus openings become blocked or too much mucus builds up, bacteria and other germs can grow more easily. Sinusitis can occur from one of these conditions:
  • Small hairs (cilia) in the sinuses, which help move mucus out, do not work properly due to some medical conditions. Colds and allergies may cause too much mucus to be made or block the opening of the sinuses. A deviated nasal septum, nasal bone spur, or nasal polyps may block the opening of the sinuses.
Sinusitis can be:
  • Acute symptoms last up to 4 weeks Sub-acute symptoms last 4 - 12 weeks Chronic symptoms last 3 months or longer
Acute sinusitis is usually caused by a bacterial infection in the sinuses that results from an upper respiratory tract infection. Chronic sinusitis refers to long-term swelling and inflammation of the sinuses that may be caused by bacteria or a fungus.

      • Sinusitis Sinusitis Aftercare Instructions Sinusitis Discharge Care Sinusitis Inpatient Care En Espanol Sinusitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the lining of your sinuses. Sinuses are hollow spaces inside the skull that are located behind the bones of your forehead, cheeks, and eyes. They are lined by mucous membranes that are clean and sterile (germ-free). Cilia (small hairs) in the mucus membranes help mucus drain into the nose through small openings called ostia.
        With sinusitis, the ostia may be blocked or the cilia may not be working properly. When this happens, mucus cannot drain properly from the sinuses. Germs grow in the mucus and cause an inflammation of the sinuses. Sinusitis may be acute, subacute, chronic, or recurrent. It is acute when the signs and symptoms last less than four weeks. Subacute sinusitis lasts from four to 12 weeks, while chronic sinusitis lasts longer than 12 weeks. Recurrent sinusitis happens when you have three or more episodes of acute sinusitis in one year. Sinusitis most commonly occurs during fall, winter, and spring. Diagnosing and treating sinusitis as soon as possible may relieve your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Sinus Infection (Sinusitis) Overview
Overview of Sinusitis
Acute sinusitis is a bacterial infection in one or more sinuses, which include the maxillary, ethmoid, and frontal sinuses. Acute sinusitis is typically preceded by a viral upper respiratory infection (URI), such as the common cold.
Incidence and Prevalence of Sinusitis
Causes and Risk Factors for Sinusitis
Article Continues Below
Acute sinusitis usually occurs following a viral URI and may also occur with allergies and fungal infection that causes inflammation of the mucous membranes. Swollen mucous membranes trap and promote the growth of bacteria that cause infection, such as Haemophilus influenzae , streptococci, pneumococci, and staphylococci, because swelling prevents normal drainage from the sinus opening (ostium). Maxillary sinusitis is also associated with chronic dental infection. Risk factors include seasonal allergies (hay fever), change in atmospheric pressure (e.g., flying, mountain climbing, swimming), and pollutants that damage the cilia of the mucous membrane responsible for drainage, like cigarette smoke.
Sinusitis Signs and Symptoms
People with sinusitis experience the following:
  • Cough (caused by postnasal drip) Nasal congestion Pain and tenderness around the affected sinuses Postnasal drip Pressure in the face and head Yellow or green nasal discharge
Maxillary sinusitis causes pain around the cheek and upper teeth and an infected ethmoid sinus produces pain over the nose or behind the eyes. Pain is caused by pressure in the sinus. A blocked ostium causes oxygen in the sinus to be absorbed into the blood vessels of the mucous membrane, causing negative pressure (vacuum sinusitis). The vacuum then draws more mucus out of the membrane, resulting in positive pressure and pain.

What is it?
Sinusitis is an infection of one or more sinuses (or air-filled chambers). There are several sets of sinuses in the bones of the face:
  • a maxillary sinus within each cheekbone. a frontal sinus in the forehead behind each eyebrow. an ethmoidal sinus, which is small and situated between nose and eye on each side. one sphenoidal sinus, deep behind the nose.
The maxillary sinus is the largest, and also the most common sinus to become infected. Sinusitis is very common and is thought to complicate from a half to two per cent of all colds. It can occur at any age, but is more common in middle-aged people.
How does it occur?
Sinuses normally drain their mucus through narrow channels into the cavity of the nose. Drainage is helped by the movement of delicate hair-shaped cells called cilia, which line the sinus walls and beat in a direction that sweeps mucus out. However, fluid can collect in a sinus, especially if there is a blockage to the drainage of mucus. For example, this may occur if there are nasal polyps, or a deviated nasal septum (an abnormality of the shape of the partition between the nostrils). If infection then sets in, as it may do after a cold, then symptoms of sinusitis can develop. Some people are more prone to sinusitis than others for a number of possible reasons:

Information on this condition, the different types, diagnosis and treatment.
Sinusitis Sinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, which may or may not be as a result of infection, from bacterial, fungal, viral, allergic or autoimmune issues. Newer classifications of sinusitis refer to it as rhinosinusitis, taking into account the thought that inflammation of the sinuses cannot occur without some inflammation of the nose as well (rhinitis).
There are several paired paranasal sinuses, including the frontal, ethmoid, maxillary and sphenoid sinuses. The ethmoid sinuses can also be further broken down into anterior and posterior, the division of which is defined as the basal lamella of the middle turbinate. Depending on the sinus they are involving, sinusitis can be:
- 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 (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
