Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Harvard University, Boston, Massachusetts.

Combination anterior palatectomy and rhinectomy defects result in complete loss of midface and nasal support and present a significant reconstructive challenge. A novel use of the scapular tip free flap-the tip-on-tip scapula flap-was developed to provide both palatal repair and restoration of intrinsic nasal support. The scapular tip bone is split into a large proximal segment for the anterior palate and a smaller distal bone segment for nasal framework reconstruction. Read More

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of hard palate.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2018 Jul-Sep;61(3):397-398

Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Manav Rachna Dental College, Faridabad, Haryana, India.

Salivary gland tumors are clinically diverse group of neoplasms, of which pleomorphic adenoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) are most common benign and malignant tumors, respectively. Besides the major salivary glands, these tumors can affect the minor salivary gland tissues in the posterior part of the hard palate. Minor salivary gland tumor accounts for about 15% of all the salivary gland neoplasm, of which MEC accounts to about 35. Read More

Lymphoepithelial carcinoma of the maxillary sinus: A case report and review of the literature.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jul;97(28):e11371

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery.

Rationale: Most cases of lymphoepithelial carcinoma (LEC) occur in the nasopharynx, and LEC in the sinonasal tract is extremely rare; thus, the clinical characteristics of sinonasal LEC are not well known.

Patient Concerns: A 63-year-old Japanese man presented with a three-week history of left cheek pain, nasal obstruction and cheek swelling.

Diagnoses: Enhanced CT and MRI revealed a tumor of the left maxillary sinus that invaded the left orbit and hard palate, with multiple swollen left cervical lymph nodes. Read More

Whole genome sequencing and 6-year follow-up of a mother and daughter with frontometaphyseal dysplasia associated with keratitis, xerosis, poikiloderma, and acro-osteolysis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jul;97(28):e11283

Department of Dermatology.

Rationale: Frontometaphyseal dysplasia (FMD) is a dominant X-linked rare disease caused by mutations of FLNA. The distinctive features of FMD include skeletal dysplasia, facial dysmorphism, extremities anomalies, deafness, cleft palate and eye anterior segment anomalies, yet none of the complications, such as acro-osteolysis, keratitis, xerosis or poikiloderma, have been reported in FMD.

Patient Concerns: A 29-year-old mother and her 7-year-old daughter, both presented with congenital glaucoma, craniofacial dysmorphism, xerosis and poikiloderma, were admitted to our hospital in 2011. Read More

1 Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, USA.

Ewing sarcoma is a locally aggressive, highly malignant tumor most commonly seen in the skeletal system. The "Ewing family of tumors" also includes other tissue types that are not common, such as soft tissue origin classified as extraosseous Ewing sarcoma (EES) or primitive neuroendocrine origin. Age of onset most often occurs within the first 2 decades of life. Read More

Van der Woude and Popliteal Pterygium Syndromes.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Sep;29(6):1434-1436

Association PIEL.

: Van der Woude syndrome is the most generic form of syndromic orofacial cleft, present in approximately 2% of all cleft patients. The lower lip pits with or without cleft lip and/or palate is typical of this syndrome. Popliteal pterygium syndrome (PPS), also known as popliteal web syndrome or fasciogenito-popliteal syndrome, was first described by Trelat in 1869, the incidence is approximately 1 in 300,000 live births.

Assisted resection of lateral extension of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma using a sphenopalatine fossa dissector.

Authors:
A Mishra

J Laryngol Otol 2018 Jul 18;132(7):657-660. Epub 2018 Jun 18.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology,King George's Medical University,Lucknow,India.

Background: Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma often attaches firmly to the adjoining bony region around the sphenopalatine foramina-sphenopalatine fossa-pterygomaxillary fissure. This can result in hourglass-shaped constriction and predispose to incomplete resection (residual disease) with a transpalatal approach. This paper describes attempts to address this 'inaccessible' area with a novel instrument, used since 2012. Read More

Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, 707 Parnassus Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94143-0758, USA.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive diagnostic technique providing cross-sectional images of biologic structures based on the differences in tissue optical properties. OCT has been widely used in numerous clinical applications and is becoming popular as a promising technology in dentistry. Today, dental hard (tooth) and soft (hard palate mucosa and gingiva mucosa) tissues are visualized with OCT. Read More

Immunohistochemical Expression of CD-117 (c-KIT), P-53 and Ki-67 in Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of Palate.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2018 Jun;28(6):S130-S132

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, NIMS Dental College, Jaipur, India.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a malignant tumor of salivary glands characterized histopathologically by biphasic epithelial tumor comprised of myoepithelial and ductal cells. There is a paucity of the literature regarding the immunohistochemical labelling of ACC arising in minor salivary glands. This paper reports an additional case of palatal ACC with an emphasis on its immunohistochemical staining using three different markers. Read More
