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.

Department of Emergency Medicine, UC San Diego, 200 West Arbor Drive, MC 8676, San Diego, CA 92103-8676, USA. Electronic address:

Foreign bodies to the ear, nose, and throat often can be managed in the emergency department, particularly if the patient offers a history consistent with foreign body and is calm and compliant with the examination and removal attempts. Tips for success include analgesia, adequate visualization, immobilization of the patient's head, dexterity and experience level of the provider, and minimizing attempts at removal. It is critical to recognize the risks involved with certain retained objects (button batteries or sharp objects) and when to call a consultant to help facilitate safe, successful removal of objects to the ear, nose, and throat.

A Foreign Body (Toothbrush) in the Esophagus of a Patient with Hiatal Hernia.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2017 Jan-Apr;11(1):184-189. Epub 2017 Apr 10.

aClinical Department for Ear Nose and Throat, Split University Hospital Center, Split, Croatia.

Toothbrush ingestion is rare and most commonly seen in patients with psychiatric comorbidities and in young women with a medical history of eating disorders who try to induce emesis. Long ingested objects, such as a toothbrush, cannot pass the gastrointestinal tract spontaneously and require endoscopic removal or even a surgical approach in cases of unsuccessful endoscopic removal or complication development. We present a case of a 71-year-old male with hiatal hernia without psychiatric or neurological comorbidity who accidentally ingested a toothbrush during oral hygiene routine. Read More
