Answer

Patients are likely to be monitored on an outpatient basis while the condition is considered chronic sinusitis until the correct diagnosis is established. After the correct diagnosis is made, patients require sinus surgery, which may entail a short stay in the hospital. Treatment does not change while the patient is in the hospital.
