OBJECTIVETumors involving Meckel's cave remain extremely challenging because of the surrounding complex neurovascular structures and deep-seated location. The authors investigated a new minimal-access technique using the endoscopic transorbital approach (eTOA) through the superior eyelid crease to Meckel's cave and middle cranial fossa lesions and reviewed the most useful surgical procedures and pitfalls of this approach.METHODSBetween September 2016 and January 2018, the authors performed eTOA in 9 patients with tumors involving Meckel's cave and the middle cranial fossa.

Teratomas show diverse biologic behaviour and prognosis as well as variable histological features. Importantly, post-pubertal testicular teratomas composed of mature components have a potential for malignant behaviour, in contrast to ovarian dermoid cysts and pre-pubertal testicular teratomas which are considered almost always benign. On the other hand, the biological behaviour and histogenesis of extragonadal teratomas are still not fully elucidated. Read More

Background: Dermoid cysts are congenital tumors that are benign. Dermoid cysts with intracranial extension can cause serious neurological complications. It is important, therefore, to determine whether a patient has a dermoid cyst when their chief concern at a doctor's visit is a mass in the head or neck area. Read More

Lawsonella clevelandensis is a recently described species and genus of bacterium in the Corynebacterineae suborder which is Gram-stain positive, partially acid-fast and anaerobic. Very few cases of human infection due to this organism are described and here we seek to add to the limited medical literature. We report the case of a 2-year-old girl who presented with an infected spinal dermoid cyst secondary to Lawsonella clevelandensis which required surgical drainage and a long course of antibiotics.

Objective: Introduction: The most pronounced thinning of the enamel is in the intercuspal fissures of the third molars, which are characterized by a wide variety of shapes and sizes up to the abnormal disruption of their development and teething, which often causes all kinds of clinical complications. The aim: The purpose of the paper was to obtain the data on the structural state of the third molars and identify their most damaged areas in the latent form of dental caries.

Objects: Given the lack of significant responses to many queries regarding behavior, treatment options and possible preventions of iatrogenic intraspinal inclusion tumors (IITs), we think that further clinical, radiological and follow up data are mandatory to better characterize this entity. We retrospectively reviewed a series of 14 consecutive patients affected by IIT occurred after myelomeningocele repair. The long follow-up is a mainstay of this series, that may help to better understand the history of this slow-growing disease. Read More

Rationale: Limbal dermoids are choristomas known as congenital benign tumors found in abnormal locations. Despite the benign nature, enlarging limbal dermoids may cause visual abnormalities by cornea infiltration with fat component, visual axis invasion, gradually induced corneal astigmatism, and finally result in anisometropic amblyopia. Here we report a rare case of progressive, large pediatric corneal limbal dermoid in a newborn, managed with tissue glue-assisted monolayer amniotic membrane transplantation. Read More

Lingual thyroid carcinoma is undistinguishable from benign enlargement of lingual thyroid, the later should also be differentiated from many oropharyngeal pathologies including but not limited to thyroglossal duct cyst, lipoma, dermoid cyst and salivary gland tumors. Ectopic lingual nature of thyroid tissue can be diagnosed with scintigraphy scan; however, malignant transformation confirms just after pathological examination. Read More

Background: Dermoid and epidermoid cysts are among the most frequent lesions of the scalp in the pediatric population. Optimal management of a suspected dermoid or epidermoid cyst in children is debated: Some authors advocate conservative management on the basis of the benign histology of these entities, while others prefer surgical excision.
Objective: Our objective is to demonstrate that excision of dermoid and epidermoid cysts is a safe procedure and that early surgery is effective in preventing potential complications related to cyst growth. Read More
