Methotrexate-associated lymphoproliferative disorder with multiple pulmonary nodules and bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Okayama, Japan.

As has been well recognized, methotrexate (MTX) leads to a state of immunosuppression and can provide a basis for the development of lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs). MTX-associated LPDs can affect nodal sites as well as extranodal sites, though the manifestation of an LPD in the form of multiple pulmonary nodules is rare. Here, we report two cases of MTX-associated LPD with multiple bilateral pulmonary nodules, which was a finding suggestive of lung cancer, and bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy. Read More

Cartilage conduction as the third pathway for sound transmission.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Nara Medical University, Kashihara, Japan.

It has been long considered that air and bone are the two major mediators that conduct sounds to the inner ear. In 2004, Hosoi found that vibration of aural cartilage, generated by placing gently a transducer on it, could create audible sound with the same level of clarity as air- and bone-conduction sound. He thus proposed the term "cartilage conduction" for this concept. Read More

Frequency characteristics and speech recognition in cartilage conduction.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgery, Nara Medical University, 840 Shijo-cho, Kashihara, Nara 634-8522, Japan.

Objective: Cartilage conduction (CC) is a new transduction form, and hearing devices that utilize CC present a new option for patients with aural atresia. However, in occluded ears, low-tone sounds are transmitted very effectively, resulting in excessive low-tone sound emphasis and speech recognition reduction. This study aimed to clarify low-tone speech recognition for CC in occluded ears, and determine if excessive low-tone sound emphasis decreases maximum speech recognition scores. Read More
