What is Sinusitis?


Sinusitis is an inflammation of the membrane lining of any sinus, especially one of the para-nasal sinuses. Acute sinusitis is a short-term condition that responds well to antibiotics and decongestants; chronic sinusitis is characterized by at least four recurrences of acute sinusitis. Either medication or surgery is a possible treatment.
