      THE MAXILLARY SINUS – AN ANATOMIC AND RADIOLOGIC STUDY (Abstract): The maxillary sinus is the largest of the paranasal sinuses and is situated in the body of the maxilla. Pyramidal in shape, the base (medial wall) forms part of the lateral wall of the nose, while the apex extends into the zygomatic process of the maxilla. The floor is formed by the alveolar process and part of the palatine process of the maxilla, and the roof contributes the major part of the floor of the orbit. Ous study is made on 58 patients investigated at the hospital „Prof. Dr. N. Oblu” in 2006 which realised CT of the head and presented head pain, naussea and vertiginous syndrom but not another obvious modifications at the level of the head. Our results demonstrate that the maxillary sinus presents a lot of anormal or anusual situations, most of them associated with acut or chronic sinusitis.
