Acute sinusitis

Acute sinusitis is a common inflammatory condition characterized by the swelling and infection of the sinus cavities. It occurs when the nasal passages and sinuses become blocked due to the accumulation of mucus and fluid, leading to the growth of bacteria or viruses. This condition often occurs as a result of a cold or respiratory infection.
