MedlinePlus:34 Sinusitis means your sinuses are inflamed. the cause can be an infection or another problem. your sinuses are hollow air spaces within the bones surrounding the nose. they produce mucus, which drains into the nose. if your nose is swollen, this can block the sinuses and cause pain. there are several types of sinusitis, including acute, which lasts up to 4 weeks subacute, which lasts 4 to 12 weeks chronic, which lasts more than 12 weeks and can continue for months or even years recurrent, with several attacks within a year acute sinusitis often starts as a cold, which then turns into a bacterial infection. allergies, nasal problems, and certain diseases can also cause acute and chronic sinusitis. symptoms of sinusitis can include fever, weakness, fatigue, cough, and congestion. there may also be mucus drainage in the back of the throat, called postnasal drip. your health care professional diagnoses sinusitis based on your symptoms and an examination of your nose and face. you may also need imaging tests. treatments include antibiotics, decongestants, and pain relievers. using heat pads on the inflamed area, saline nasal sprays, and vaporizers can also help. nih: national institute of allergy and infectious diseases

MalaCards: Sinusitis is related to rhinitis and meningitis. An important gene associated with Sinusitis is RNASE3 (ribonuclease, RNase A family, 3), and among its related pathways are TSLP Signaling Pathway and Inflammatory Response Pathway. The drugs ciprofloxacin and pseudoephedrine and the compounds unicap and sodium cromoglycate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, testes and brain, and related mouse phenotypes are respiratory system and immune system.
