Hello, Ratna

Thank you for your question for

The sinuses are air-filled cavities, which are around your nose and are lined with mucous membranes. There are 4 sinus cavities in humans, namely:

1. Frontal sinus, located on the forehead, just above the eye

2. The maxillary sinus, found inside the right and left cheekbones (in the form of a triangle, can be seen on the X-ray of the face)

3. Ethmoid sinus, located behind the bridge of the nose

4. Sphenoid sinus.

Sinusistik is an inflammation or inflammation of the sinus tissue, usually caused by a viral infection, bacterial infection or fungal infection. A healthy sinus is a cavity filled with air, but when it becomes blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow in the cavity and cause infection.

Several conditions can trigger sinus congestion:

1. Flu.

2. Allergic rhinitis, is inflammation of the lining of the nose.

3. Nasal polyps, are small fleshy growths on the lining of the nose.

4. Deviation of the septum, is the nasal cavity that is not straight or displaced.

Sinusitis symptoms:

1. A stuffy or runny nose

2. Itchy nose and sneezing

3. Can be accompanied or without sore throat

4. Headache or pain in the face

5. Feeling tired, sore and weak

Several types of sinusitis:

1. Acute sinusitis, usually preceded by symptoms such as runny nose, nasal congestion and facial pain. It can occur suddenly, lasting 2-4 weeks.

2. Inflammation of the subacute sinuses, usually lasting about 4-12 weeks.

3. Chronic sinusitis, lasting about 12 weeks or more.

4. Sinusistik recurrence, occurs several times a year.

Who gets sinusitis? About 35 million Americans suffer from sinusitis, at least once a year. It's likely that sinusitis can occur in someone who has:

1. Inflammation in the nose which is usually caused by the common cold or flu.

2. Closed drainage channels.

3. Anatomical structural abnormalities in drainage channels, such as smaller and narrower drains.

4. Nasal polyps.

5. A decreased immune system, such as in autoimmune diseases, or someone who is taking drugs that suppress the immune system.

A diagnosis of sinusitis can be confirmed from the symptoms you complain about, physical examination, especially of the ears, nose and throat. To confirm the diagnosis, the doctor will recommend examining X-rays of the face.

Radiological characteristics of sinusitis:

1. Air-fluid level (fluid-air level) in the sinus cavity. The air-fluid level seen on the radiological results of a patient with sinusitis is stated to be specific for diagnosis of sinusitis.

2. Thickening of the sinus mucosa (lining of the sinus). Sinus mucosal thickening, is seen in more than 90% of patients with sinusitis, but this finding is not specific for a sinusistic diagnosis.

3. Increased intercourse in the sinus cavity. Increased intercourse in the sinus cavity, is specified for diagnosis of sinusitis.

4. Remodeling and thickening of the bones may be seen.

We recommend that you consult directly with an ENT specialist, so that a physical examination can be carried out, further investigations and appropriate treatment.
