Sinusitis is an inflammation of the tissue lining the sinuses that afflicts over 35 million people each year. Normal sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, pathogens (bacteria, viruses and fungi) can grow and cause an infection.
Anatomical changes such as narrowed drainage pathways and deviated nasal septum are often associated with sinusitis. Sinusitis sufferers experience a wide range of symptoms, including nasal congestion, colored drainage, pain around the eyes, facial pressure, fatigue, dental pain, and headaches.
Sinusitis is often used to describe several specific conditions that differ in duration and cause, including acute sinusitis, recurrent sinusitis, chronic sinusitis, sinus headaches and sinus barotrauma.
