The expression ‘fibrolinear density’ means longish white areas in x-ray. Fibrolinear and irregular densities are not unusual as a residual effect of lung tuberculosis
. This may persist on x-ray for several years.
In your case, the radiologist
too feels that these are result of old healed infection. Current problems of sinusitis
and dripping from the nose are not likely to be related to old tuberculosis.
What was the reason for taking this x-ray? Was there any fever
(with night sweats
), cough, phlegm production or loss of weight? If there are such symptoms, tests (including sputum smear study) need to be done for active disease.
Please get the help of your doctor to get your sinusitis treated properly. Your doctor will also suggest some measures to get relief from ‘running nose’.
