Mammary Analogue Secretory Carcinoma of the Palate: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Dent 2019 27;2019:7416302. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Division of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County, Chicago, IL, USA.

Mammary analogue secretory carcinoma (MASC) is a recently described salivary gland tumor, with a limited number of published reports. Less than three hundred cases have been reported in the literature and only 18 of these cases have been reported in minor palatal salivary glands, though publication bias is likely a factor. We present a case of a 57-year-old male who was diagnosed with MASC tumor presenting in a minor salivary gland and briefly review the current literature. Read More

Angiocentric Centrofacial Lymphoma as a Challenging Diagnosis in an Elderly Man.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Mar 30;20:412-418. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Tecnologico de Monterrey, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

BACKGROUND Angiocentric centrofacial lymphomas, now known as nasal-type extranodal natural killer T-cell lymphomas, are neoplasms of highly destructive characteristics that mainly affect the nasal cavity and palate. The most frequent clinical presentation includes fever, weight loss, nasal obstruction, epistaxis, nasal or facial edema, as well as necrotic ulcers in the nasal cavity, gums, and palate. It has been found to have an important association with the Epstein-Barr virus. Read More

Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Parkland Memorial Hospital, 5323 Harry Hines Boulevard, Mail Code 9109, Dallas, TX 75390, USA.

Salivary gland tumors are rare pathologic entities that are derived from major and minor salivary gland tissue located throughout the head and neck region. These tumors are distinctly heterogenous, comprising numerous cell types, especially those deemed malignant. The incidence of malignant salivary gland tumors is widely distributed in both adult and pediatric patient populations. Read More

Options for periorbital reconstruction include primary wound closure, local flaps, regional/distant flaps, or full-thickness skin grafts. Optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes are achieved by assessing regional contours, skin type, and facial aesthetic units. Like tissue should replace like tissue; for example, skin with skin, tarsus with tarsus (or equivalent material, eg, hard palate, ear cartilage, or autologous substitute), and conjunctiva with mucous membrane or like substitute (buccal mucous membrane, amniotic membrane).

The disease of Sigmund Freud: oral cancer or cocaine-induced lesion?

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Jan 17;276(1):263-265. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Via Olgettina 60, 20132, Milan, Italy.

Purpose: Sigmund Freud, the father of modern psychoanalysis, suffered from what was considered to be a malignant tumour spreading from the back of his palate. He underwent numerous surgical interventions and radiation therapy over the course of 16 years. Such a long survival casts a shadow of doubt on the diagnosis of oral cancer that was given to Freud.

A targeted therapy for melanoma by graphene oxide composite with microRNA carrier.

Drug Des Devel Ther 2018 21;12:3095-3106. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Department of Plastic Surgery, The Third Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, 410013, China,

Background: Nowadays, the combination of microRNA (miR) is attracting increased attention in clinical cancer trials. However, the clinical use of miR is highly limited because of certain properties such as instability, low-specificity distribution, and metabolic toxicity.

Methods: In order to improve the anti-tumor efficacy and reduce the side effects of miR in treating melanoma, a combination of graphene oxide (GO), chitosan (CS), and a cellular penetrating peptide, MPG, was prepared with solid dispersion method in this research. Read More

Neuroendoscopic Resection of Trigeminal Schwannoma in the Pterygopalatine/Infratemporal Fossa via the Transnasal Perpendicular Plate Palatine Bone or Transnasal Maxillary Sinus Approach.

World Neurosurg 2018 Dec 13;120:e1011-e1016. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Jiangsu Clinical Medicine Center of Tissue Engineering and Nerve Injury Repair, Chinese Medical Association Neuroendoscopic Training Base and Department of Neurosurgery, Affiliated Hospital of Nantong University, Nantong, Jiangsu Province, China. Electronic address:

Background: Both the pterygopalatine fossa (PPF) and the infratemporal fossa (ITF) lie outside the midline of the skull base. Lesions in the PPF or ITF include trigeminal schwannoma (trigeminal schwannoma, TS), which originates from the second or third branch of the trigeminal nerve (maxillary nerve or mandibular nerve). Due to their typically deep anatomic location, lesions in the PPF or ITF can be difficult to treat using traditional surgical approaches. Read More

West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease Presenting as Elsberg Syndrome.

Neurologist 2018 Sep;23(5):152-154

Division of Critical Care Neurology.

Introduction: Elsberg syndrome (ES) is a rarely recognized cause of cauda equina syndrome and lower thoracic myelitis, mainly linked to reactivation, or occasionally primary, infection with herpes simplex virus type 2. West Nile virus neuroinvasive disease is rarely considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with ES.

Case Report: A 63-year-old man with pancreatic cancer in remission and polymyalgia rheumatica on low-dose prednisone presented with a 10-day history of low-back pain and a viral-type illness with low-grade fever, nausea, and vomiting. Read More

Neuromastoma of the hard palate mucosa in an Australian green tree frog (Litoria caerulea).

J Vet Med Sci 2018 Oct 16;80(10):1511-1514. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Laboratory of Veterinary Pathology, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, 1-1-1 Yayoi, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-8657, Japan.

A hard palate mass was surgically removed from an Australian green tree frog (Litoria caerulea) and examined pathologically. The tumor consisted of sheets of small cells arranged in a tubular structure and cords or rosettes with fibrovascular stroma. Immunohistochemically, neoplastic cells were diffusely positive for cytokeratin and neuron-specific enolase and partially positive for S-100 and doublecortin. Read More

Tip-on-Tip Scapular (TOTS) Flap for Reconstruction of Combined Palatectomy and Rhinectomy Defects.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Aug 24;34(4):389-393. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

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

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
