192. Sinonasal Disease

episodes of acute bacterial rhinosinusitis (ABRS) occur annually, the term recurrent acute rhinosinusitis (RARS) is used. The most common imaging finding is mucosal thickening. Involvement is usually bilateral. Acutely infected sinuses may demonstrate air-fluid levels, as well as associated bone rarefaction. In chronic phases, there may be a reactive sclerosis indicating osteitis, which may require antibiotics. In other cases, reactive osteosclerotic changes may have sinus margin contraction that does (...) not reverse over time [9]. The absence of bone erosion or destruction favors an inflammatory process rather than neoplasm. Because rhinosinusitis is a clinical diagnosis, imaging should be interpreted in conjunction with the clinical and endoscopic findings [10-17]. Up to 3% to 40% of asymptomatic adults may have abnormalities on sinus computed tomography (CT) scans, as do more than 80% with minor upper respiratory tract infections [18-20]. Special Imaging Considerations Sinus CT imaging may be performed

work? The immune system is a collection of tissues (e.g. bone marrow, thymus, lymph nodes and spleen), cells (e.g. lymphocytes, neutrophils and macrophages) and molecules that can be broadly divided into two parts, the innate and adaptive immunity. There can be significant overlap between these 2 systems. Innate immune responses: • Are present before there is contact with pathogens • Are limited in specificity • Have no memory or long lived protection • Are mediated by cells (e.g. neutrophils (...) , natural killer [NK] cells) and circulating molecules (e.g. complement proteins) Adaptive immune responses: • Are slower to initiate • Respond specifically to antigens • Result in immunological memory • Are mediated by cells (T cells, B cells, dendritic cells) and circulating molecules (antibodies) ASCIA INFORMATION FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS 2 Effects of age on the immune system Whilst newborns have maternal antibodies that crossed the placenta during pregnancy, their adaptive immune systems are still
