2 Pathophysiology of Sinusitis The maxillary, frontal, ethmoid, and sphenoid sinuses all drain into the nasal cavity though the ostia (1–3 mm in diameter), see Fig. 1. The paranasal sinuses are lined with ciliated epithelium, which produce mucus and actively propels it into the nasal cavity via the ostia. 2,3 A preceding viral upper respiratory tract infection or allergy can increase local inflammatory reaction in the nasopharynx and surrounding contiguous mucosa of the sinuses, from local production of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators.
