Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

This happens to be a normal physiologic variant of the paranasal sinuses and has no clinical significance.

There was even a paper written about it which you can reference here:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1898819

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

Was the MRI done because of the fainting spells? Did it show any other findings?
