Right Maxillary Sinusitis Causes Seizures?
Hello, I want to ask. My mother likes seizures, but the seizure cycle goes from midnight to above. Then the mother, I brought to Dr. and for initial diagnosis my mother declared epilepsy and my mother was ordered to ct-head scan then the results of the conclusion ct-scan was suggestive of small ischemic lesions on the right temporal and what is the purpose of right maxillary sinusitis. What does that mean? Thank you
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A CT scan showing an ischemic in the right trporporal area and sinusitis in the right maxillary sinus region indicates a blockage of blood flow in the right temporal lobe where the temporal lobe plays a role in memri, hearing, vision, or language function, resulting in ischemia or obstruction partial or total blood flow in the temporal lobe can cause dysfunction of the related system. Ischemic events in the brain are often known as ischemic stroke attacks with accompanying symptoms of memory function, hearing impairment, language comprehension and the patient's seizures.
Whereas the presence of right maxillary sinusitis is a form of sinus inflammation or bone cavity in the cheek area. Patients with sinusitis can be accompanied by concomitant complaints in the form of fever, breathing problems, nasal congestion, runny nose, and headaches.
Thus, the symptoms of seizures experienced by your parents may be triggered by a blockage of blood vessels in the temoparal part of the brain. However, to ensure that all examination results are obtained, you should consult directly with the neurologist who treats your parents, so that the doctor can ascertain all the clinical conditions encountered and plan the necessary treatment.
For now, it is necessary to thoroughly evaluate your mother's health, related to the body's metabolic system, blood pressure, heart function and possible organ system disorders. Provide positive support from the family so that your parents can recover well to improve their clinical condition and prevent more severe brain damage.
