About

Triggered by a cold, allergies or bacterial/ fungal infection, acute recurrent maxillary sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses.

Approximately 0.5% of all upper respiratory tract infections involve sinusitis, which is most common in adults (children do not have fully developed sinuses). One in 10 people visit their doctor for sinusitis trouble each year.

Treatable by a medical professional
Usually self-diagnosable
Lab tests or imaging rarely required
Short-term: resolves within days to weeks

Acute sinusitis (acute rhinosinusitis) causes the cavities around your nasal passages (sinuses) to result in inflammation and swelling.
