Chronic Sinusitis

Symptoms of chronic sinusitis vary considerably. Fever may be absent or be of low grade. Frequently symptoms are protracted and include malaise, easy fatigability, difficulty in mental concentration, anorexia, irregular nasal or postnasal discharge, frequent headaches, and pain or tenderness to palpation over the affected sinus.

Plain radiography and especially CT scanning can assist in diagnosing chronic infection and its complications. CT is useful in investigating any anatomical finding that can lead to obstruction and poor chainage.
