Cystic fibrosis is a lethal genetic disorder whose victims currently have a median life span of approximately 30 years. With this increased life span, new aspects of the disease are identified in patients with cystic fibrosis, including chronic sinusitis. Sinusitis severely affects the quality of life of patients with sinusitis. This article discusses several aspects of sinusitis in patients with cystic fibrosis, including clinical presentation, radiologic findings, and treatment options. By recognizing and treating sinusitis in patients with cystic fibrosis, physicians may improve the quality of life of these patients.
