Overview

Chronic sinusitis affects over 30 million people in the U.S. It occurs when the spaces in the nose and head (sinuses) become inflamed and swollen.
This interferes with mucus drainage and creates a stuffy nose.

Chronic sinusitis may be brought on by an infection, growths in the sinuses (nasal polyps), or inflammation of the lining of your sinuses. Also called chronic rhinosinusitis, the condition can affect both adults and children.
