Acute rhinosinusitis is an infection of the nose and paranasal sinuses (sinus of the face) that can usually be of viral or bacterial cause.
The diagnosis of acute rhinosinusitis is clinical and can be complemented with the examination of nasal endoscopy. It means that you do not need further exams such as x-ray.
That is done through the patient’s history and the evaluation of the physician.
When rhinosinusitis has a viral cause, treatment does not require the use of antibiotics, unlike bacterial rhinosinusitis.
