“Maxillary Sinusitis of Endodontic Origin"
The pathological extension of endodontic disease into the maxillary sinus and its sequelae are often unrecognized in medical and dental practice. Despite extensive literature recognition and reported high prevalence, dental infection manifesting in the maxillary sinus is often misdiagnosed and treated as rhinogenic sinusitis.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Describe sinus anatomy and normal sinus physiology and the patholophysiologic processes that contribute to rhinosinusitis.
  2. Describe the progression and pathogenic effects of endodontic infection in the sinus and the associated clinical and radiographic findings of maxillary sinusitis of endodontic origin (MSEO).
  3. Understand the reasons for the common misdiagnosis and mistreatment of patients with MSEO.
