65 Possible Causes for Frontal Sinusitis, Sinus Opacification

  • Sinusitis

    Orbital complications, one of the emergent complications of chronic rhinosinusitis, can be occurred in frontal sinusitis.[] Imaging revealed diffuse sinus opacification and a Le Fort type I complex fracture involving the maxilla, pterygoid plates, clivus, and right nasal bridge.[] Image studies show complete opacification of the left frontal sinus, left sphenoid sinus, and the left maxillary sinus.[]

  • Rhinocerebral Mucormycosis

    Urgent MRI brain and CT of PNS showed haziness in right maxillary,ethmoidal and frontal sinuses with retro orbital extension. We advised urgent nasal swab for fungus.[] Complete sinus opacification, gas-fluid levels and obliteration of the nasopharyngeal tissue planes can also occur.[] Imaging studies demonstrated left-side orbital cellulitis, paranasal sinusitis, and a large lobulated abscess in the left frontal lobe.[]

  • Mucocele of the Paranasal Sinus

    In our case, patient had two separate mucoceles in left frontal and ethmoid sinuses.[] If obtained, they demonstrate opacification and expansion of the affected sinus.[] The lesions are commonly found in the frontal sinuses, followed by ethmoid sinuses and sphenoid and maxillary sinuses.[]

  • Mucocele

    Furthermore, CB mucocele with orbital invasion and secondary frontal sinusitis has not been reported previously.[] If obtained, they demonstrate opacification and expansion of the affected sinus.[] METHODS: Retrospective chart review of an osteoblastoma of the frontal sinuses complicated by a right orbital mucocle.[]

  • Mucocele of the Sphenoid Sinus

    Generally arising from the ethmoid or frontal sinuses, orbital mucoceles are mucous or fluid filled cysts which can displace the eye.[] Sphenoid Sinus Mucocele Fig. 1: Axial unenhanced CT image shows opacification of the left sphenoid sinus due to a mass (arrow) causing slight expansion of the sinus.[] These cysts are commonly seen in the maxillary sinuses but may also occur in the ethmoid, sphenoid, or frontal sinuses.[]

  • Chronic Sinusitis

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    A thorough physical examination, comprised of cranial inspection, palpation of the sinuses (which reveals tenderness in the frontal area in the case of frontal sinusitis),[] opacification was in the MTsp group.[] The opacification of the frontal recess and sinus lateralis demonstrated a strong association with an increased presence of frontal sinusitis by multiple logistic regression[]

  • Paranasal Sinus Disease

    There was excellent agreement (p 0.001) between otolaryngologists regarding transillumination of the frontal sinuses but not the maxillary sinuses.[] Paranasal sinus CT scans of a total of 185 patients (92 males, 93 females) were examined in terms of sinus opacification.[] The degree to which the clinical staging was able to predict and correlate with radiologic staging and predict the degree of sinus opacification was determined.[]

  • Acute Sinusitis

    A case of balloon frontal sinuplasty in a 12-year old male with intracranial abscess from acute sinusitis is presented.[] MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Each subject underwent a structured history and physical examination, followed by a sinus computed tomography (CT) scan.[] It was observed that she had bilateral maxillary, ethmoidal, and frontal sinusitis and an infected bilateral middle concha bullosa in the right side.[]

  • Nasal Polyp
