    Mucoceles of the lesser salivary glands in neonates demonstrate a particular clinicopathological pattern and mandate urgent management.
    J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Feb 21. Epub 2018 Feb 21.
    Pediatric Surgeon, 2nd Department of Pediatric Surgery, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, general hospital "Papageorgiou". Electronic address:
    Mucoceles of the lesser salivary glands are common benign lesions affecting all ages, most commonly appearing on the lower lip. However, mucoceles in neonates demonstrate a different clinicopathological pattern than in older children or adults and mandate urgent management. We present a case of a large mucocele on the tongue of a neonate which impaired feeding and could block the airway. Read More

    Parotid Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma Mimicking a Large Mucocele.
    J Craniofac Surg 2018 Feb 14. Epub 2018 Feb 14.
    Department of Pathology, Gaziantep Dr Ersin Aslan State Hospital, Gaziantep, Turkey.
    Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is a malign tumor involving the parotid gland and minor salivary glands. Parotid pure cystic mucoepidermoid carcinoma can also masquerade mucocele, and hence, histopathological examination is crucial to distinguish the 2. Herein, the authors report a patient of mucoepidermoid carcinoma presenting as an asymptomatic mucocele-like cystic parotid mass. 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

    Sphenoid mucocele with intracranial extension: An anatomical perspective.
    World Neurosurg 2018 Feb 10. Epub 2018 Feb 10.
    Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland.
    Background: Isolated sphenoid mucoceles are rare, but due to their close proximity to important vasculonervous structures, local extension may result in serious consequences.

    Case Description: A 47-year old patient presented with headaches, meningismus and a left homonymous lateral hemianopia. We report here the atypical evolution of a post-traumatic sphenoid mucocele invading the sellar region and extending into the subarachnoid space with compression of the right optic tract and we describe its surgical management.

    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.

    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.
