The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of misdiagnosis of sinus headache in migraine and other primary headache types in the children and adolescents with chronic or recurrent headaches. Data collection for each patient included history of previously diagnosed sinusitis due to headache, and additional sinusitis complaints such as fever, cough, nasal discharge, postnasal discharge at the time of sinusitis diagnosis, and improvement of the headache following treatment of sinusitis.

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of polarized light therapy versus pulsed electromagnetic field therapy on chronic rhinosinusitis. Methods: Forty patients with ages ranging from 25 to 40 years and suffering from chronic maxillary rhinosinusitis. They were divided into two groups. Group A composed of 20 patients received the Bioptron light therapy BLT 10 minutes session over each maxillary sinus day after day for three months.
Sinusitis in children and adolescents with chronic or recurrent headache: a case–control study
The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of benralizumab as treatment for severe nasal polyposis. The effect of benralizumab on nasal polyps will be assessed over a 56 weeks of treatment period in patients with severe bilateral nasal polyposis who are still symptomatic despite standard of care therapy; i. In addition for Japan, reduction in computed tomography CT scan opacification of the sinuses will be also a co-primary objective.
If you've ever had a cold that just wouldn't go away, chances are it was sinusitis — an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, the cavities within the bones that surround the nose. The sinuses are lined with a thin membrane that produces mucus, which is normally swept along by hair cells and drains through small openings into the nasal cavity. Sinusitis also called rhinosinusitis starts when this drainage system becomes blocked, usually from swelling due to inflammation caused by infection or allergy. Soon, your head hurts, you feel facial pressure or pain, and thick mucus clogs your nose.
