Sinusitis occurs when the epithelium that covers the sinuses is inflamed, the most common being the closure of the sinus openings appearing in the common cold or flu. These diseases enhance the secretion of mucus in the nasal passages, causing swelling of the walls of the sinus and preventing normal operation of the cells.
