Magnetic resonance perfusion and diffusion characteristics of granulomatous diseases mimic those of malignant lesions: six case reports.

Oral Radiol 2018 01 16;34(1):73-82. Epub 2017 Mar 16.

Department of Radiology and Cancer Biology, Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Sakamoto 1-7-1, Nagasaki, 852-8588, Japan.

The perfusion and diffusion properties of a tumor are important clues in evaluating its growth potential and predicting its histological type, such as benign or malignant. Tumor perfusion can be estimated by assessing time-dependent changes in the intratumoral levels of the contrast agent during dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, whereas tumor diffusion can be estimated by assessing intratumoral water diffusivity on diffusion-weighted MR imaging. Granulomatous diseases with different etiologies occur in various head and neck regions, including the mandible, maxillary sinus, salivary glands, and lymph nodes. Read More

SOC Neuroanestesia e Rianimazione, A.O.U. Careggi, Firenze, Italy.

Summary: Emerging and re-emerging infectious disease in otorhinolaryngology (ENT) are an area of growing epidemiological and clinical interest. The aim of this section is to comprehensively report on the epidemiology of key infectious disease in otorhinolaryngology, reporting on their burden at the national and international level, expanding of the need of promoting and implementing preventive interventions, and the rationale of applying evidence-based, effective and cost- effective diagnostic, curative and preventive approaches. In particular, we focus on i) ENT viral infections (HIV, Epstein-Barr virus, Human Papilloma virus), retrieving the available evidence on their oncogenic potential; ii) typical and atypical mycobacteria infections; iii) non-specific granulomatous lymphadenopathy; iv) emerging paediatric ENT infectious diseases and the prevention of their complications; v) the growing burden of antimicrobial resistance in ENT and the strategies for its control in different clinical settings.

The results of Kaplan-Meier and multivariate analyses of etiological factors related to the outcome of combined pharmacological therapy against laryngeal granuloma.

Acta Otolaryngol 2016 Nov 22;136(11):1141-1146. Epub 2016 Jun 22.

a Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery , Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine , Suita , Japan.

Conclusions: The present results indicate that the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is an independent etiological factor predicting retardation of the resolution of laryngeal granuloma.

Objectives: To assess the effects of combined usage of an inhaled corticosteroid plus tranilast and/or a proton pump inhibitor on the size of granulomatous lesions, and to reveal etiological factors related to the outcome using the Kaplan-Meier method and a subsequent multivariate analysis.

Methods: Sixty-two patients with laryngeal granuloma were enrolled. Read More

Nivolumab-Induced Sarcoid-Like Granulomatous Reaction in a Patient With Advanced Melanoma.

Chest 2016 May;149(5):e133-6

Dermatology Department, Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris, Saint Louis Hospital, Paris, France; Clinical Investigation Department, Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris, Saint Louis Hospital, Paris, France; Onco-Dermatology, Immunology and Cutaneous Stem Cells, Université Paris Diderot, Sorbonne Paris Cité, Paris, France.

To our knowledge, we report the first case of sarcoid-like granulomatous reaction induced by nivolumab, a fully human IgG4 anti-programmed death 1 (PD-1) immune checkpoint inhibitor antibody. A 57-year-old man was treated with nivolumab 3 mg/kg for 2 weeks for a desmoplastic melanoma stage III American Joint Commission on Cancer, with no BRAF, NRAS, and cKit mutations. At 10 months, although melanoma complete response was achieved, he developed sarcoid-like granulomatous reaction in the mediastinal lymph node and skin, which resumed after nivolumab arrest.

Clinic manifestations in granulomatosis with polyangiitis.

Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol 2016 Jun 18;29(2):151-9. Epub 2015 Dec 18.

Policlinico "Umberto I" - Rome, Department of Organs of Sense - ENT Section, University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy.

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), formerly Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), is an uncommon immunologically mediated systemic small-vessel vasculitis that is pathologically characterised by an inflammatory reaction pattern (necrosis, granulomatous inflammation and vasculitis) that occurs in the upper and lower respiratory tracts and kidneys. Although the aetiology of GPA remains largely unknown, it is believed to be autoimmune in origin and triggered by environmental events on a background of genetic susceptibility.In Europe, the prevalence of GPA is five cases per 100,000 population, with greater incidence in Northern Europe.
