Extensive mucosal thickening in the right maxillary sinus is likely secondary to advanced dental infection around the roots of 16 and 17, eroding the alveolar bone into the maxillary sinus.
Incidental bilateral palatine tori.
Odontogenic sinusitis is an infectious process within the maxillary sinuses that extends superiorly from the roots of the upper teeth which pierce the sinus floor.
Incidentally noted in this study is bilateral palatine tori (or maxillary tori) which is a normal anatomical variant and is characterized by bony outgrowths from the palatine or alveolar processes of the maxilla.
