Asymptomatic COVID-19 infection in a child with nasal foreign body.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2020 Aug 8;135:110092. Epub 2020 May 8.

Newton Wellesley Hospital, Newton, MA, USA; Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

While children, particularly infants, are susceptible to severe and critical COVID-19 disease, over 55% of pediatric cases are present in asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic children. Aerosolized SARS-CoV-2 viral particles remain viable for up to 3 hours, raising concern about risk to healthcare workers during aerosol generating procedures (APGs) in the airway and nasopharynx. Herein we describe the first case of a nasal foreign body in an asymptomatic child with SARS-CoV-2 infection. Read More

The Utility of the Maxillary Heuwieser for Oropharyngeal Foreign Body Removal Under Nebulized Local Anesthesia: A Case Series.

Ear Nose Throat J 2020 Feb 13:145561320906329. Epub 2020 Feb 13.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, USA.

We describe a novel and safe use of existing instrumentation in the removal of select foreign bodies in the upper aerodigestive tract to minimize health-care costs. A retrospective review of 4 cases involving visualized upper aerodigestive tract foreign bodies were identified via flexible laryngoscopy and extracted under local anesthesia from 2016 to 2018. All 4 patients were not in any airway distress and underwent successful removal of the foreign body, which included 2 fishbones, a sewing pin, and a wire bristle with a maxillary Heuwieser or giraffe instrument under flexible laryngoscopy visualizing using local anesthesia without complications.

Endoscopic Removal of Huge Cholesterol Granuloma in the Maxillary Sinus Confused With Odontogenic Keratocyst.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Mar/Apr;31(2):507-509

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Biomedical Research Institute, Pusan National University School of Medicine, Pusan National University Hospital, Busan, Republic of Korea.

Cholesterol granuloma is a foreign body reaction to the deposition of cholesterol crystals, usually found in association to chronic middle ear diseases, being highly uncommon in the paranasal sinuses. Furthermore, a huge and aggressive cholesterol granuloma involving the maxillary sinus, hard palate, buccal space, and maxillary alveolus is extremely rare and has not been reported previously. This article reports a case of huge cholesterol granuloma in the maxillary sinus confused with an expansile odontogenic keratocyst, which was treated successfully via transnasal endoscopic approach.

Light-assisted removal of ear canal live insect-A noninvasive approach for first level responders.

J Family Med Prim Care 2019 Sep 30;8(9):3042-3044. Epub 2019 Sep 30.

Department of Otolaryngology, King Fahad Central Hospital Jazan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Physicians, working in the primary care setting and/or emergency departments, encounter more often patients of any age group with foreign bodies in the external auditory canal (EAC) and urgent removal is crucial to avoid complications. The condition is more commonly managed on an urgent basis if the foreign body is a live insect that is more agonizing for the patient. Foreign body removal is quite challenging but an essential skill for first-level responders and different approaches, each with its own pros and cons, are used for EAC foreign bodies removal.

A nose out of joint: first reported case of prison-acquired marijuana-based rhinolith.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Oct 25;12(10). Epub 2019 Oct 25.

Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Westmead Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Rhinoliths are calcareous concretions of the nasal cavity formed around a nidus that may be endogenous (eg, dislodged tooth) or an exogenous foreign body (eg, plastic bead inserted by a child). Rhinoliths are often found incidentally on endoscopy or imaging to assess for other pathologies. The incidence is estimated to be 1 in 10 000 of all otolaryngology outpatient presentations, but this is likely to be an underestimate due to the often asymptomatic nature of this condition.

Foreign bodies are commonly seen by the Ear, Nose and Throat emergency team with cotton wool being the most common aural foreign body seen in the adult population. Most complications secondary to aural foreign bodies described in the literature are minor and rarely require any surgical intervention. Here, we present two cases with impacted cotton wool as aural foreign bodies which resulted in suppurative labyrinthitis and osteomyelitis causing profound sensorineural hearing. Read More
