    Unusual Cause of Dysphagia in a Post-Stroke Patient.
    Dysphagia 2017 Mar 29. Epub 2017 Mar 29.
    Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, 101 Daehak-Ro, Jongno-Gu, Seoul, 03080, Republic of Korea.
    Vallecular cysts are formed when the duct of a mucous gland or lingual tonsillar crypt is dilated owing to obstruction from inflammation, irritation, or trauma. Small cysts are usually asymptomatic; however, cyst growth results in dysphagia, odynophagia, and acute airway complications. As complete transoral laser excision of a vallecular cyst often results in cyst resolution and improved symptoms, proper diagnosis and management of vallecular lesions are important. Read More

Decreased bile flow, decreased gallbladder motility, and altered absorption of water from the gallbladder lumen are predisposing factors to biliary sludge. However, it is more likely to be a small part of a complex disease process involving inflammation of the gallbladder wall and changes to the lining of the gallbladder changing the consistency of its secretions.

    Presternal subcutaneous bronchogenic cyst in adolescence: A case report and unusual ultrasonographic findings.
    Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Feb;96(5):e6054
    aDepartment of Radiology bDepartment of Pathology, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University, College of Medicine, 59 Yatap-ro, Bundang-gu, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do cDepartment of Radiology, Seoul National University Hospital, 101 Daehak-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea.
    Subcutaneous bronchogenic cysts have been described rarely, particularly among adolescents. Only a few reports have described the ultrasonographic features of bronchogenic cysts, characterizing them as nonspecific cystic masses with or without internal echogenic foci or debris. Therefore, it is hard to differentiate subcutaneous bronchogenic cysts from other subcutaneous cystic tumors ultrasonographically. Read More

    Endocr Pathol 2017 Mar;28(1):83-90
    Department of Pathology, University Health Network, 200 Elizabeth Street, 11th floor, Toronto, ON, M5G 2C4, Canada.
    Xanthomatous hypophysitis is a rare inflammatory disease of the pituitary gland that can mimic a neoplastic lesion clinically and radiologically. Its pathogenesis remains largely unknown, although recent evidence suggests that pituitary inflammation may occur as a secondary reaction to mucous content released from a ruptured cyst. In a series of 1221 pituitary specimens, we identified seven cases of xanthomatous hypophysitis. Read More

    Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Faculty of Dental Sciences, Sri Ramachandra University, Chennai, India.
    Mucoceles are nonneoplastic cystic lesions of major and minor salivary glands which result from the accumulation of mucus. These lesions are most commonly seen in children. Though usually these lesions can be treated by local surgical excision, in our case, to avoid intraoperative surgical complications like bleeding and edema and to enable better healing, excision was done using a diode laser in the wavelength of 940 nm.
