  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Maxillary sinuses are posterior to the cheekbones; use digital pressure and percussion on the cheeks to elicit tenderness.[] […] and the cheeks for the maxillary sinuses.[] The maxillary sinuses may also be transilluminated by placing a light beam inside the patient's mouth against the palate directed upward.[]

  • Acute Sinusitis

    OBJECTIVES: This study was undertaken to evaluate the aerobic and anaerobic microbiology of acute maxillary sinusitis of odontogenic origin presenting with periodontal infection[] Transillumination is commonly used to assess the maxillary and frontal sinuses, although poor reproducibility between observers and a lack of correlation with maxillary sinusitis[] These are the maxillary, frontal, ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses ( Fig. 1 ).[]

  • Chronic Sinusitis

    The maxillary sinuses were divided into 2 groups: CMS and no maxillary sinusitis.[] Preoperative computed tomography (CT) established that all patients had severely diseased maxillary sinuses.[] In maxillary sinusitis, construction of a nasoantral window is the best form of definitive treatment.[]

  • Sinusitis

    PURPOSE: Otolaryngologists, dentists and maxilla-facial surgeons see patients suffering from odontogenic maxillary sinusitis on a daily routine.[] Given the intimate anatomic relationship between the antrum and the posterior maxillary teeth, maxillary sinusitis can present as odontalgia.[] The study was performed to investigate the different origins of the odontogenic maxillary sinusitis ranging from periodontitis to augmentative implant surgery.[]

  • Hay Fever

    Abstract This case concerns bilateral parotitis apparently caused by increased intraoral pressure generated by sneezing and forceful clearing of the nares during an attack of hay fever. This was accompanied by painful anterior cervical lymphadenopathy. The condition responded well to an oral cephalosporin and[…][]

  • Mucocele of the Paranasal Sinus

    The lesions are commonly found in the frontal sinuses, followed by ethmoid sinuses and sphenoid and maxillary sinuses.[] […] ethmoid sinuses at the center of the skull base The maxillary sinuses - located under the eye sockets and in the upper part of either side of the upper jawbone Approximately[] In our study frontal, ethmoidal, sphenoid, and maxillary sinuses were involved in six, four, two, and one cases, respectively [Table 2].[]

  • Periapical Abscess

    BACKGROUND: Maxillary sinusitis may develop from the extension of periodontal disease.[] The ethmoid and maxillary sinuses were involved in both patients. Subdural empyema occurred in both, and one of the children had also cerebritis and brain abscess.[] In rare cases the dental infection can lead to septicemia, neck space infection, cavernous sinus thrombosis and maxillary sinusitis.[]

  • Nasal Polyp

    The involvement of maxillary sinuses, however, has been previously reported in only 8 case reports English literature.[] Coronal section through the ethmoid maxillary sinuses and orbits.[] Polyps can also grow in your sinuses. Your sinuses are air-filled spaces in your skull which drain into your nose. The biggest sinuses are called the maxillary sinuses.[]
