  • How is Chronic Sinusitis Diagnosed and Treated? - " Bill a 50-year-old male"

    Bill, a 50-year-old male, presents with an eight year history of nasal congestion, anterior and posterior nasal discharge, a reduced sense of smell and is feeling generally fatigued. Despite these symptoms, Bill has managed to continue to function in his daily routine, however at a reduced level. He remembers exactly when this started after a bad cold and can almost give his doctor the exact date. He has been on several courses of antibiotics that only help him partially and only for a short time. The symptoms almost always return. He has also been put on prednisone for short bursts of 2-3 weeks, during which time he feels great. His sense of smell and energy return and he feels back to normal for a short time. Bill has also been told in the past year that he has developed asthma, which he never had before.

    On endoscopic examination of his nasal passage, Bill's doctor discovers he has nasal polyps in both middle meatie (nasal passages), with coloured discharge going down the back of his throat. His doctor explains that this discovery, along with Bill's adult-onset asthma and his symptoms of sinusitis lasting more than three months clearly point to chronic sinusitis.

    Patients like Bill typically do not get better on medical management and can potentially require endoscopic sinus surgery and careful post-operative care for successful management and cure of their chronic sinusitis symptoms.

  • What is the Diagnosis and Treatment of Acute Sinusitis? "  " Janice a 39-year-old mother has a worsening cold and nasal congestion "

    Janice, a 39-year-old mother of two young children, presents with a 10-day history of a worsening cold and nasal congestion that is not getting better. She states that it all started with a cold that got somewhat better after the first five days but has now become worse again. She is getting coloured nasal discharge, pain and pressure in both her cheek sinuses. She finds that her nasal passages are congested and her sense of smell is compromised. She feels tired and does not have the energy to get out of bed and drop her kids off at school in the morning. She denies fevers.

    As her symptoms have worsened and continue past seven days, Janice now has moderate to severe acute rhinosinusitis. She meets the Canadian Guidelines criteria for acute sinusitis as she complains of the PODS (pain and pressure, obstruction, discharge and smell loss) symptoms lasting more than five days.

    Recommended acute sinusitis treatment is starting Janice on a nasal steroid spray, two sprays to each nostril twice daily, nasal irrigations with saline once to twice daily and encouraged hydration. If her symptoms do not start to turn around within 48 hours, Janice should be started on an antibiotic regimen with the first line of treatment being amoxicillin 500mg po tid.
