Abstract: Today, there are several diagnostic methods that allow you to determine the exact size and nature of periapical formations. In addition, there are studies that describe the thickening of the sinus mucosa in patients with periapical lesions and show a causal relationship. Objectives: This study was to study the morphological changes in the cysts of the maxillary sinus. Methods: 50 patients with maxillary sinus cysts were evaluated. A total of 50 maxillary sinuses (13 men and 12 women) were analyzed taking into account changes in density in the sinus cavity. The thickening of the sinus mucosa and periapical lesions was measured in the caudal-cephalic direction. The axial and sagittal axes were taken as a basis on the sagittal and coronal sections. The presence of opacities was not directly related to periapical lesions. Conclusions. Lesions of the maxillary sinus floor have been associated with chronic periapical lesions larger than 4 mm. Clouding or thickening of the sinus mucosa was not associated with periapical lesions.
