Associated Conditions for Sinusitis

Excerpts on associated medical conditions for Sinusitis:

In fact, some studies state that up to 80 percent of adults with chronic sinusitis also had allergic rhinitis. There is also an association between asthma and sinusitis.

About associated conditions for Sinusitis:

Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by Sinusitis, and underlying causes may be causes of Sinusitis, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have Sinusitis. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Sinusitis. People with Sinusitis may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to Sinusitis is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.
