Rhinosinusitis is a disease of a number of sinusitis. It is caused by inflammatory processes in the mucous membrane of the paranasal sinuses and the nasal cavity. Rhinosinusitis is a disease that is of a massive nature. According to statistical data, in the acute form of rhinosinusitis in Russia alone, more than 10 million people carry over every year.

Depending on the nature of the course of the diseasephysicians stand out acute, subacute, recurrent and chronic form of rhinosinusitis. The main criterion for this grouping is the duration of clinical symptoms of rhinosinusitis:

  • Acute form. Acute symptoms of rhinosinusitis with subsequent preservation up to 30 days;
  • Subacute. It lasts from one to three months, the symptoms completely disappear after recovery;
  • Recurrent form. Repeated episodes of the acute form of rhinosinusitis (4 times a year with symptoms longer than 10 days);
  • Chronic form. Clinical manifestations of rhinosinusitis lasting more than 3 months.

One of the most common causes of rhinosinusitis is the untreated rhinitis (rhinitis) or ARVI. which are carried on the legs. The disease is always accompanied by inflammatory processes of the nasal mucosa, therefore rhinosinusitis combines many symptoms.

The following causes of rhinosinusitis can be distinguished:

  • The leading factor in the activation of inflammatoryprocess with rhinosinusitis is the deformation of the side wall in the nose. Anomaly of the nasal cone (curvature of the septum, polyps of the nasal adenoid), hypertrophic rhinitis contribute to the violation of the natural purification of the sinuses and lead to stasis of secretion;
  • Viral infections that lead to the development of edema of the mucous membrane, enhancing the secretion of mucous glands. The aperture of the sinuses is blocked by excess mucus and edematous mucosa;
  • Disturbances during cleansing of the nasal cavity (blowing). In this case, the purulent secret, penetrating into the sinuses, increases the viscosity of their contents and aggravates blockage of the sastia;
  • Bacterial infections, settled in the sinuses in conditions of disturbed outflow and stagnation of mucus;
  • Fungal infections. Fungal rhinosinusitis is a very likely complication if antibacterial agents are used without control;
  • Allergic rhinitis;
  • Bronchial asthma ;
  • Weakened immunity;
  • Chronic inflammation of the sinuses of the nose (vasomotor rhinitis);
  • Adverse environmental factors;

The main symptoms of rhinosinusitis include:

  • Difficult nasal breathing;
  • Headache;
  • Increased body temperature;
  • Purulent-mucous discharge from the nose;
  • Deterioration or total loss of smell;
  • Erection of the ears;
  • Cough;
  • General malaise.

Rhinosinusitis in children is the dominantdisease, which is one third of the mass of diseases associated with the upper respiratory tract. It is noted that half of the children, growing up, do not cease to suffer from them.

With rhinosinusitis, children can develop a serious complication. which in the early ages reach 9cases of 10. Especially dangerous are purulent-septic orbital complications, accompanied by visual impairment, and in 2% of cases, possible development of intracranial complications is not ruled out. In the absence of timely diagnosis and effective treatment, every second case with acute rhinosinusitis is accompanied by descending processes to the lower respiratory tract and the development of pneumonia.

The main symptoms in children largely coincide withsymptoms of rhinosinusitis in adults: painful and prolonged coughing (especially in the morning), difficulty breathing through the nose, nasal voice, general malaise with rapid fatigue. Lack of appetite and a long rise in body temperature are also possible.
