Sinonasal Extramedullary Plasmacytoma With Rare Osteolytic Lesions.

Cureus 2021 Mar 31;13(3):e14220. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Orthopedics, General Hospital of Patras, Patras, GRC.

Plasmacytomas are malignant tumors characterized by abnormal monoclonal proliferation of plasma cells. They originate either from bone or soft tissue and could be primary or a part of a systemic process during the course of multiple myeloma. Extramedullary plasmacytomas (EPs) in the sinonasal tract or nasopharynx are rare and mostly presented as case reports. Read More

[Reconstruction of oncological defects of the perianal region].

Chirurg 2021 Apr 27. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Plastisch- und Handchirurgische Klinik und Labor für Tissue Engineering und Regenerative Medizin, Universitätsklinikum Erlangen, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg FAU, Krankenhausstraße 12, 91054, Erlangen, Deutschland.

In addition to the progressive development of surgical oncological techniques for malignant tumors of the rectum, anal canal and vulva, reconstructive procedures after oncological interventions in the perianal region represent a cornerstone in the postoperative quality of life of patients. Modern treatment modalities for rectal cancer with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy increase the survival rate and simultaneously reduce the risk of local recurrence to 5-10%, especially by cylindrical extralevatory extirpation of the rectum. The price for increased surgical radicality and improved oncological safety is the acceptance of larger tissue defects. Read More

Sustained remission of multi-line relapsed extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type, following sintilimab and chidamide: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Mar;100(10):e24824

Department of Hematology.

Introduction: There is currently no optimal treatment modality for refractory or relapsed Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKTL). In recent years, programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1)/programmed cell - ligand 1 pathway blockade and histone deacetylase inhibitors have emerged as promising strategies for refractory or relapsed ENKTL. Accumulating evidence has shown that therapeutic effects of anti-PD-1 antibody could be enhanced by histone deacetylase inhibitors. Read More

M O Udoh D O Udoh

West Afr J Med 2021 Feb;38(2):131-136

Department of Surgery,University of Benin/University of Benin Teaching Hospital,Benin City. Edo State, Nigeria.

Background: Intracranial extensions of Head and Neck region tumours are a result of direct spread, into the brain and meninges, of tumours arising in the pharynx, paranasal sinuses, orbit, middle ear, scalp, skull and neck tissues. Presenting features may resemble those of an intracranial mass, or the contiguous structure of origin, or both. Delayed diagnosis is not uncommon when patients are not able to afford diagnostic imaging or when the possibility of an intracranial extension is not readily considered in the evaluation of patients with head and neck lesions.

Study of the physicochemical properties of drugs suitable for administration using a lymphatic drug delivery system.

Cancer Sci 2021 May 16;112(5):1735-1745. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering for Cancer, Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan.

Lymph node (LN) metastasis is thought to account for 20-30% of deaths from head and neck cancer. The lymphatic drug delivery system (LDDS) is a new technology that enables the injection of drugs into a sentinel LN (SLN) during the early stage of tumor metastasis to treat the SLN and secondary metastatic LNs. However, the optimal physicochemical properties of the solvent used to carry the drug have not been determined. Read More

Invasive fungal disease misdiagnosed as tumour in association with orbital apex syndrome.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jan 20;14(1). Epub 2021 Jan 20.

Ophthalmology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhubaneswar, Bhubaneswar, India.

Invasive sino-orbital aspergillosis is a rare cause of orbital apex syndrome (OAS) in immunocompetent patients and often misdiagnosed as tumour because of its aggressive nature and invasive patterns. We report a 23-year-old immunocompetent man presenting with painful progressive loss of vision, ophthalmoplegia and proptosis of the right eye suggestive of OAS. MRI with gadolinium contrast showed an enhancing heterogeneous mass filling the paranasal sinuses, extraconal space and extending up to the right orbital apex. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jan 18;14(1). Epub 2021 Jan 18.

Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) is an uncommon sinonasal cancer of the olfactory neuroepithelium that is typically treated with surgical resection followed by radiation therapy. Radiation-induced intracranial osteosarcoma of the skull base is a rare but devastating long-term complication of radiation therapy in this region. Here, we present a case of an 82-year-old patient who developed radiation-induced osteosarcoma of the anterior skull base and paranasal sinuses 10 years after radiation therapy following resection of an ENB.

Sinonasal teratocarcinosarcoma: a case report and literature review.

J Int Med Res 2020 Dec;48(12):300060520971488

Department of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, West China Hospital, West China Medical School, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

Background: Sinonasal teratocarcinosarcoma (SNTCS) is a highly invasive malignant tumor most frequently found in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. As a result, it can be confused with other sinonasal tumors. In addition, SNTCS progresses rapidly and often infiltrates other tissues or organs in the early phase, resulting in poor patient prognosis. Read More

Aggressive resection of craniopharyngioma achieved by drilling the tuberculum sellae/planum sphenoidale using a frontal basal interhemispheric approach: A review of 55 cases.

J Clin Neurosci 2021 Jan 14;83:13-20. Epub 2020 Dec 14.

Department of Clinical Laboratory Center, Fuwai Hospital, National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Objective: The frontal basal interhemispheric approach (FBIA) is preferable for resection of craniopharyngioma (CP), achieving desirable total resection rates in early reports of lesions located in the suprasellar region to the third ventricle. For tumours that have created a larger obstruction of the tuberculum sellae and planum sphenoidale, aggressive resection in the intrasellar region and medial wall of the cavernous sinus is not feasible compared to improving tumour visualization by drilling the tuberculum sellae and planum sphenoidale. In a report of drilling the sellar tuberculum and sphenoid planum, drilling allowed the direct visualization of tumours invading the intrasellar region and medial wall of the cavernous sinus.
