ASSOCIATION OF ANATOMIC VARIANTS OF PARANASAL SINUSES AND CHRONIC SINUSITIS

Dr. Amol Gorakhnath Sasane, Dr. Santosh R Konde

Abstract :

 A case–control study was carried out on 80 patients with a clinical diagnosis of chronic sinusitis who were referred by Department of ENT of tertiary care hospital. The control group (n= 40) were chosen from the same hospital patients with diagnoses other than sinusitis. The association between the anatomic variants (concha bullosa of inferior and middle turbinate, agger nasi cell, haller cell, giant ethmoidal bulla, septal deviation and inverted uncinate process) and existence of chronic sinusitis was shown with odds ratio ( OR). Septal deviation and concha bullosa of middle turbinate were the anatomic variants significantly associated with chronic sinusitis (respectively OR= 2.08 and OR= 2.12). Normal anatomic variants of paranasal sinuses may be considered as predictors for the occurrence of chronic sinusitis.
