Chronic sinusitis causes significant worsening of asthma. Many times adults may develop asthma for the first time secondary to persistent sinusitis. Patients may also develop pneumonia because of persistent sinusitis which could require hospitalization.
Sinusitis also causes middle ear infections, fluid, and hearing loss. Because the brain and eyes are so close to the sinuses, sinusitis can also cause serious complications such as meningitis and eye infections resulting in vision loss.
