Emerging challenges and possible strategies in maxillo-facial and oral surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic.

J Oral Sci 2020 Sep 24;62(4):452-454. Epub 2020 Aug 24.

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic suddenly took the world by storm and Italy was one of the hardest hit countries. Maxillo-facial surgery and dentistry procedures had to be significantly reorganized, since they are considered high-risk procedures. Protocols had to be changed and interdepartmental cooperation was put in place to plan surgical interventions and maintain high standards. Various improvements have been made to prevent and reduce the risks of spreading the infection. Even if the situation seems to have improved, being unprepared is not an option. In this paper the experience gained during these months has been shared and possible future challenges has been highlighted, suggesting practical adjustments based also on new guidelines and recommendations.

Clinical Management of Acinic Cell Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland.

Case Rep Oncol 2019 Sep-Dec;12(3):777-790. Epub 2019 Oct 16.

To report a case of acinic cell carcinoma occurred in the lacrimal gland. A 59-year-old man was admitted because of sudden blurring of vision, progressive proptosis of the left eye, and mild double vision in left and down directions of the gaze (Hess-Lancaster test). His medical history detailed controlled bilateral keratoconus and open angle glaucoma. On examination, the best corrected visual acuity decreased from 8/20 till 1/50 in one week. There was a swelling of the left upper eyelid. A hard and tender mass was palpated in the superior temporal left orbit. Ultrasound scan showed an extraconal solid mass, situated in the superior lateral corner of the orbit. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a mass of two centimeters in diameter, with round well-defined outline, within the lacrimal gland. We performed an enucleoresection of the mass, via a coronal approach and a lateral orbitotomy by a piezosurgical device. The lesion appeared nodular, brownish, measuring about 2 × 1.5 cm. Histopathological findings were consistent with acinic cell carcinoma with a microcystic, focally papillary-cystic growth of pattern. Follow-up MRI outcomes led to removal of the residual lacrimal gland for suspicion of recurrence. No tumor recurrences where detected at 7-year follow-up.
