Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissue lining the sinuses, which are cavities filled with air located behind the nose, forehead, and part of the cheeks. These cavities are necessary for proper mucus drainage.

The sinuses can become blocked with fluid which increases the risk of germs and, consequently, sinus infections. Infections of the sinuses are referred to as sinusitis and can be diagnosed on a scale from acute to chronic.


Acute sinusitis lasts 2-4 weeks. Subacute sinusitis can last 4-12 weeks. Chronic sinusitis lasts longer than 12 weeks. Recurrent sinusitis occurs several times a year.
