HERNANDEZ PENA, Odalys  and  CRESPO VIDAL, Ramón Enrique. Maxillary Sinusitis as a Sequel to Gunshot Wound. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2016, vol.45, n.4, pp.1-5. ISSN 0138-6557.

Gunshot wounds are not among the most common causes of nasal trauma, and sinusitis related to this cause is even rarer. A case is presented of amputation of inferior, middle turbinates and a sinensis of the left nostril from a gunshot wound. It produced poor ventilation of the sinonasal sinus and infection of the cavity, developing a sinus condition, which responded to the usual treatment without other consequences. This case is presented given the magnitude of the causal agent, having only one sinusitis as a sequel as cause of sinusitis.

Keywords : sinusitis; gunshot wound.
