Perigeniculate arachnoid cysts and CSF fistulae of the fallopian canal: Histopathologic correlates of a rare clinical entity.

World J Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2021 Apr 24;7(2):71-81. Epub 2021 Jan 24.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Johns Hopkins University, USA.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulae originating from the fallopian canal of the facial nerve is hypothesized to arise due to atypical patterns of subarachnoid space extension into the geniculate ganglion or more distal regions along the intratemporal course of the facial nerve, but its pathogenesis remains poorly understood. Although a rare etiology of CSF fistulae of the temporal bone, there are significant clinical ramifications due to the risk of recurrent meningitis, difficulty in identifying the anatomic location of the CSF leak, and technical challenges associated with surgical repair. We present three clinical cases of arachnoid cysts within the geniculate fossa with or without CSF fistulization and provide histopathologic correlates of this rare clinical phenomenon from a human temporal bone collection.

The greatest challenge of modern implantology is the loss of bone tissue in esthetic region of maxilla and mandible. Significant bone changes caused for example by cysts, unerupted teeth or traumatic extraction often provoke bilateral or trilateral bone defects. Thanks to the possibility of applying demineralized dentin and dentin blocks gained from extracted teeth of the patient, it is possible to successfully regenerate bone tissue especially in the esthetic zone.

Department of Otolaryngology, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) South, Dothan, USA.

Branchial cleft cysts are congenital anomalies which develop in utero, most commonly arising from the second branchial cleft. They are often asymptomatic lateral neck masses but can enlarge and become symptomatic in the setting of infection. The cystic cavity can form a potential space which can harbor infection and, in rare cases, malignant spread of primary tumors. Read More
