What causes prominent CSF and inflammatory disease of ethmoid air cells?
Hello. I recently had an MRI on my head and they found a small 3mm pituitary tumor, moderate enlargement of the sella turcica, prominent CSF (dont remember what part but think the word began with serpen something), and minor mucosal inflammatory disease of the ethmoid air cells. Can you tell me more about the ethmoid air cells and also why I would have large amounts of CSF?
I have noted the MRI report. The abnormalities mentioned are minor and there is no need to worry. Ethmoidal air cells are part of sinuses and there is mild inflammation in sinuses, which can be treated with medicines.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
