    Mucocele-like lesions diagnosed on breast core biopsy: Low risk of upgrade and subsequent carcinoma.
    Breast J 2017 Oct 11. Epub 2017 Oct 11.
    Department of Pathology, Robert J. Tomisch Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.
    Mucocele-like lesions of the breast diagnosed on core biopsy are usually excised to exclude the possibility of partial sampling of an invasive mucinous carcinoma. The goal of this study was to correlate the pathologic and radiologic features of mucocele-like lesions to determine if excision is mandatory. Over a 16 year period we identified 32 patients with mucocele-like lesions diagnosed on 27 (84%) stereotactic and 5 (16%) ultrasound-guided core biopsies. Read More

    Masses of the Nose, Nasal Cavity, and Nasopharynx in Children.
    Radiographics 2017 Oct;37(6):1704-1730
    From the Department of Radiology, Nationwide Children's Hospital, 700 Children's Dr, Columbus, OH 43205 (D.P.R.); and Department of Radiology, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio (E.S.O., B.L.K.).
    A wide range of masses develop in the nose, nasal cavity, and nasopharynx in children. These lesions may arise from the nasal ala or other structures of the nose, including the mucosa covering any surface of the nasal cavity, the cartilaginous or osseous portion of the nasal septum, the nasal turbinates, and the nasal bones. Lesions may also arise from the nasopharynx or adjacent structures and involve the nose by way of direct extension. Read More

    Bacterial overgrowth, dysbiosis, inflammation, and dysmotility in the Cystic Fibrosis intestine.
    J Cyst Fibros 2017 Nov;16 Suppl 2:S14-S23
    Department of Pediatrics, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Translational Medicine, Research Institute, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
    Gastrointestinal disease in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is caused by defective chloride and bicarbonate transport in intestinal cells leading to reduced intraluminal fluidity, increased mucous viscosity and consequently development of intestinal inflammation, dysbiosis and often times dysmotility. This triad is also referred to as the "CF gut". A diagnosis is mainly based on clinical observation and treatment is often times decided empirically. Read More

    [The original method for the endonasal surgical access to the maxillary sinus through crista conchalis of the maxillary bone].

    Maxillary sinus mucoceles and other side effects of external-beam radiation in the pediatric patient: A cautionary tale.
    Ear Nose Throat J 2017 Sep;96(9):E27-E28
    Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, 910 Madison Ave., Suite 430, Memphis, TN 38163, USA.
    A sinonasal mucocele can develop after the obstruction of a sinus ostium, which can occur secondary to trauma, infection, a neoplasm, or an iatrogenic cause. These mucoceles typically arise in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses. Sinonasal mucoceles are epithelium-lined cysts that can gradually expand to fill a paranasal sinus. Read More

    Approach to Frontal Sinus Outflow Tract Injury.
    Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Mar 25;18(1):1-4. Epub 2017 Mar 25.
    Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seongnam, Korea.
    Frontal sinus outflow tract (FSOT) injury may occur in cases of frontal sinus fractures and nasoethmoid orbital fractures. Since the FSOT is lined with mucosa that is responsible for the path from the frontal sinus to the nasal cavity, an untreated injury may lead to complications such as mucocele formation or chronic frontal sinusitis. Therefore, evaluation of FSOT is of clinical significance, with FSOT being diagnosed mostly by computed tomography or intraoperative dye. Read More

    Secondary Reconstruction of Frontal Sinus Fracture.
    Arch Craniofac Surg 2016 Sep 23;17(3):103-110. Epub 2016 Sep 23.
    Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Gachon University Gil Medical Center, Incheon, Korea.
    Fractures of frontal sinus account for 5%-12% of all fractures of facial skeleton. Inadequately treated frontal sinus injuries may result in malposition of sinus structures, as well as subsequent distortion of the overlying soft tissue. Such inappropriate treatment can result in aesthetic complaints (contour deformity) as well as medical complications (recurrent sinusitis, mucocele or mucopyocele, osteomyelitis of the frontal bone, meningitis, encephalitis, brain abscess or thrombosis of the cavernous sinus) with potentially fatal outcomes.

    Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Fırat University School of Medicine, Elazığ, Turkey.
    Paranasal sinus mucoceles are mucus-containing cystic structures with an epithelial lining that completely fills in the paranasal sinuses. Although they are benign in nature, they may result in the destruction of the surrounding bony structures over time. Clinical findings such as exophthalmia, visual impairment, and diplopia occur due to pressure of the fronto-ethmoidal mucocele on the orbita. Read More

    Presse Med 2017 Jul - Aug;46(7-8 Pt 1):655-659. Epub 2017 Jul 4.
    Hôpital d'instruction des Armées-Percy, service d'ORL et de chirurgie cervico-faciale, 101, avenue Henri-Barbusse, 92140 Clamart, France.
    The complications of sinusitis are essentially secondary to ethmoidal and frontal sinusitis, occurring in patients weakened, particularly in case of immunodeficiency or anatomical defects. The gravity is due to the risk of spreading infection in intracranial tissues and orbital cavity. The diagnosis is always to discuss any symptomatology resistant to treatment and the appearance of orbital or neurological signs. Read More

    Frontal sinus mucoceles are benign, pseudocystic lesion deriving from the obliteration of the sinus ostium, resulting in a continuous mucous accumulation. The growing process of a mucocele leads to a progressive enlargement of the sinus cavity, thickening and eroding its bony walls up to invading the surrounding tissues. The surgical procedure through an endoscopic endonasal approach is the current treatment option for such conditions, but in cases with an extensive bone erosion and intracranial or intraorbital extension, a transcranial approach should be preferred.

    Simultaneous, congenital, mucocoele of the Blandin-Nühn glands and teratoma of the tongue: early management and follow up at one year.

    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, NHE - CHU de Clermont-Ferrand, Université d'Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand 63003, France; UMR Inserm/UdA, U1107, Neuro-Dol, Trigeminal Pain and Migraine, Université d'Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand 63003, France.
    Mucocoele of the Blandin-Nühn glands and teratomas of the tongue are rare in newborn babies. We present what is to our knowledge the first documented case of both at the same time, and describe management and follow up over 12 months after the birth. Prenatal diagnosis defined the treatment plan during delivery to establish an airway for the baby promptly. Read More

    Minimally invasive appendectomy for resection of appendiceal mucocele: Case series and review of the literature.

    Introduction: Appendiceal mucoceles encompass neoplastic and non-neoplastic causes of a distended Appendix filled with mucus. Appendectomy is recommended when an appendiceal mucocele is identified, incidentally or otherwise, in the event it is secondary to a malignancy. For an intact mucocele, it is critically important to avoid rupturing the mucocele during resection, as rupture of a neoplastic mucocele can result in pseudomyxoma peritonei, or mucin deposits in the peritoneum, which is associated with long-term morbidity and mortality.
