Department of Otolaryngology, Lenox Hill Hospital/Northwell Health, 110-11 72nd Ave., Suite 1B, Forest Hills, NY 11375, USA.

Red ear syndrome (RES) is an unusual, often unrecognized condition that has rarely been reported in the otolaryngology literature despite the presence of symptoms and associated disorders of relevance to the otolaryngologist. When present, RES may have diagnostic value when uncertainties arise in cases of sinus headache and referred otalgia. Despite the appearance of a distinctive red ear, as well as symptoms and associated disorders relating to otolaryngology, discussion of RES is generally limited to neurology-based publications.

Headache in Pregnancy, the Puerperium, and menopause.

Semin Neurol 2018 Dec 6;38(6):627-633. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Neurology, University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, The State University of New York, Buffalo, New York.

Headache is a neurologic disorder that displays gender dichotomy. It is well established that there is a strong link between migraine headache and sex hormones, specifically estrogen, which influences the severity of migraines during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause. Furthermore, the epidemiology of headaches during pregnancy and the postpartum period is very distinct from that in males or nonpregnant females, in part due to the hemodynamic and hematologic changes that occur during pregnancy.

Acta Neurol Belg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Neurology, Keçiören Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

The aim of the study was to measure the thicknesses of the inner retinal segments and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters in migraineurs and patients with tension-type headache (TTH) in headache-free period using swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and to compare the outcomes with each other and those of healthy subjects. The study population consisted of 23 migraineurs, 22 TTH patients, and 25 controls with a best-corrected visual acuity of 20/20 and without a history of systemic or ocular disease. Macular ganglion cell inner plexiform layer (mGCIPL), macular ganglion cell complex (mGCC), circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL), and ONH parameters were evaluated using SS-OCT, and the areas under the receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curves were calculated to determine the ability of these parameters to distinguish between the patient and normal eyes.
