Sinusitis
 
Standard Definition

See also allergies and sensitivities and hayfever

Sinusitis involves congestion of sinus passageways in the skull. The blockage may result from inflammation and swelling of the nasal tissues, obstruction by one of the small bones of the nose (deviated septum) or from secretion of mucus.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Sinusitis may be acute or chronic. Acute sinus congestion is most often caused by the common cold. Chronic sinus congestion may result from environmental irritants such as tobacco smoke, food allergens, inhaled allergens, or poor liver function. Sinus congestion indicates poor mucous membrane health and predisposes individuals to recurrent bacterial infections.
