Paranasal sinusitis is defined as the inflammation in mucosa of paranasal sinuses. Depending on the disease period, paranasal sinusitis can be categorized as acute(less than 4 weeks in duration), subacute(more than 4 weeks but less than 12 weeks), and chronic(more than 12 weeks) sinusitis. The majority of infectious causes of paranasal sinusitis are viral events. The causes of chronic paranasal sinusitis are multiple, including infectious, allergic, anatomic, mucociliary, and systemic disorders. Diagnosis of paranasal sinusitis depends on the symptoms, signs, and radiologic findings. Treatments of paranasal sinusitis include conservative management, antibacterial medication, and surgery depending on different disease process.
