Frontal Sinuses

Summary Information: Frontal Sinuses

Frontal Sinuses: The frontal sinuses are paired sinuses located in the skull above the eyes in the frontal bone in the forehead area. Frontal sinuses are cavities that are filled with air and are lined with mucus membranes. The function of frontal sinuses is believed to include warming, moistening, and filtering inspired air and maximizing voice quality. They may also provide some protection from facial and head trauma and minimize the total weight of the skull. Some people do not develop frontal sinuses.

The frontal sinuses consist of variety of elements, including cilia and respiratory epithelium, mucus membranes and ostia. They drain into the nasal meati. Conditions that can afflict the frontal sinuses include upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, respiratory allergies, smoking, sinus fractures, and trauma.
