Sinusitis is an inflammation of membranes lining of sinuses. The sinuses are cavities in the bones behind the nose and eyes. Their exact function is unclear, but they make the head lighter than it would be if the bones were solid and they seem to help the voice to resonate. Normally any mucus produced by the membranes produced by the membranes in the sinuses drains down narrow passages to the nose. However, these channels enable infection to travel up from the nose to the sinuses. Such infection is normally the result of a cold, but occasionally it travels into the sinuses when an upper tooth develops an abscess. Some people have a particular tendency to develop sinusitis, and once such a tendency is established the disorder may occur after every cold.
