Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

The CT scans are suggestive of chronic inflammation affection the sinuses and middle ear cavity. The scan findings need to be correlated with his clinical features to establish a clear diagnosis of your son's condition.

It is likely that you son has chronic sinusititis with mastoiditis and otitis media. The treatment usually would be microscopic surgery performed by an experienced ENT surgeon.

Discuss with your ENT specialist and plan for the treatment at the earliest.

Hope this answers your query.

I wish him a speedy recovery.
