    Fronto-ethmoidal Osteoma with Secondary Intradural Mucocele Extension causing Frontal Lobe Syndrome and Pneumocephalus: Case Report and Review of the Literature.
    World Neurosurg 2018 Apr 18. Epub 2018 Apr 18.
    Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Basel, Switzerland. Electronic address:
    Background: Paranasal sinus osteoma is a common, asymptomatic, histologically benign, and slow-growing tumor. However, it can give rise to secondary pathologies such as a mucocele in about 50% of the cases. Rarely, intracranial and orbital extension is present leading to rhinoliquorrhea, pneumocephalus, or neurological and visual impairment, which might be potentially life-threatening. Read More

    Value of double pedicled mucoperiosteal flaps for the prevention of restenosis in Draf IIb frontal sinusotomy.
    Eur Ann Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Dis 2018 Feb 15. Epub 2018 Feb 15.
    Département d'oto-rhino-laryngologie et chirurgie cervico-faciale, chirurgie endoscopique de la base du crâne, groupe hospitalier Saint-Louis, Lariboisière, Fernand-Widal, université Paris-Diderot, AP-HP, 75010 Paris, France.
    Introduction: The extent of bone exposure is one of the major factors contributing to failure of endoscopic frontal sinusotomy procedures. Double flaps providing cover of exposed bone have already been described for Draf III procedures in a cadavre study using posterior and lateral pedicled nasoseptal flaps. As these flaps overlap on the septal side, they cannot be raised from the same nasal cavity in a Draf IIb procedure. Read More

    An Update of Mucinous Lesions of the Breast.
    Surg Pathol Clin 2018 Mar 6;11(1):61-90. Epub 2017 Dec 6.
    Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis Street, Amory 3, Boston, MA 02115, USA.
    Mucinous lesions of the breast include a variety of benign and malignant epithelial processes that display intracytoplasmic or extracellular mucin, including mucocelelike lesions, mucinous carcinoma, solid papillary carcinoma, and other rare subtypes of mucin-producing carcinoma. The most important diagnostic challenge is the finding of free-floating or stromal mucin accumulations for which the significance depends on the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic context. This article emphasizes the differential diagnosis between mucocelelike lesions and mucinous carcinoma, with a brief consideration of potential mimics, such as biphasic and mesenchymal lesions with myxoid stroma ("stromal mucin") and foreign material.

    2Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, PMS College of Dental Science & Research, Trivandrum, India.
    A mucous cyst is a lesion which can show a wide range of symptoms but is benign and most of them can even appear several months or even years after nasal surgeries. Size of the displaced epithelial fragment is a crucial factor for the development of the mucous cyst. Complete resection of the mucous cyst is the ideal treatment. Read More

    World J Transplant 2017 Dec;7(6):359-363
    Division of Transplantation and Advanced Hepatobiliary Surgery, University of Utah, School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, UT 84132, United States.
    Biliary mucoceles after deceased donor liver transplantation are a rarity, and mucoceles mimicking a gallbladder from the recipient remnant cystic duct have not been described until this case. We describe a 48-year-old male who presented with right upper quadrant pain and was found to have a recipient cystic duct mucocele 3 mo after receiving a deceased donor liver transplant. We describe the clinical presentation, laboratory and imaging findings (including the appearance of a gallbladder), multidisciplinary approach and surgical resolution of this mucocele originating from the recipient cystic duct, and a review of the literature.

    Visual prognosis in compressive optic neuropathy secondary to sphenoid sinus mucocele: A systematic review.
    Orbit 2018 Jan 5:1-7. Epub 2018 Jan 5.
    a Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science , Yale University School of Medicine , New Haven , Connecticut , USA.
    Sphenoid sinus mucoceles (SSMs) are rare, benign lesions that can expand, often presenting with ocular symptoms-decreased vision, diplopia, visual field defects, proptosis, and external ophthalmoplegia. Reported cases are few, visual compromise varies, and factors affecting visual prognosis are poorly characterized. We investigate whether prompt surgical intervention (within 2 weeks of visual symptom onset) affects best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) regained in patients with vision loss secondary to compressive SSM.
