BMJ Case Rep 2019 Mar 25;12(3). Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.

Thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDCs) are the most common congenital neck mass and often present in the paediatric population as a painless mass in the midline. A lateralised neck mass presenting for the first time in an adult may raise more concern for malignancy or a laryngocele. A 50-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic right level II neck mass adjacent to the thyroid cartilage. Read More

2Department of Anaesthesiology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Pediatric upper airway disorders are a major cause of morbidity and mortality. They can be congenital or acquired and provide diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to the paediatrician and otolaryngologists. Though fibreoptic laryngoscopy or bronchoscopy is the initial mode of assessing the pathology, detailed assessment and therapeutic intervention can only be done combining both direct laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy.

Laryngopharyngeal Reflux Study Group of the Young Otorhinolaryngologists of International Federation of Otorhinolaryngological Societies (YO-IFOS), Marseille, France.

Objectives: To investigate the role of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) in the development of benign lesions of the vocal folds (BLVF).

Methods: PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Scopus were searched by three independent investigators for articles published between January 1990 and November 2018 providing substantial information about the role of LPR in the development of nodules, polyps, cysts, Reinke's edema, and sulcus vocalis. Inclusion, exclusion, diagnostic criteria and clinical outcome evaluation of included studies were analyzed using Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses criteria.

Risks and complications of thyroglossal duct cyst removal.

Laryngoscope 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, Irvine, California.

Objectives/hypothesis: Thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDCs) are the most common congenital neck cyst and typically present in childhood or adolescence, although a subset remains asymptomatic until adulthood. Although treatment involves surgical excision, few large-scale studies exist regarding the risks of surgical treatment of TGDCs in adults. This study aims to describe the characteristics of adult patients undergoing TGDC excision and to analyze risk factors associated with reoperation or other postoperative complications. Read More

Perineural cyst with intracystic hemorrhage following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(8):e14184

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Dongguk University Ilsan Hospital, Goyang, Korea and Dongguk University, Seoul, Korea.

Rationale: Most perineural cysts are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally at the time of imaging. Although enlargement of the perineural cyst (PC) through a ball-valve mechanism and resultant compression of the adjacent neural or bony structures are known to be a source of pain in PCs, the reason why asymptomatic PCs become symptomatic is unclear. The authors report a case of PC, which was presumed to become symptomatic after subarachnoid hemorrhage without enlargement of the pre-existing PC. Read More

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial, UKGM GmbH, University Hospital of Marburg, Faculty of Medicine, Philipps University, Marburg, Germany.

Differential diagnosis of a lateral neck mass, especially in paediatric patients, should include branchial cleft cysts (BrCC).

A cerebellopontine angle mouse model for the investigation of tumor biology, hearing, and neurological function in NF2-related vestibular schwannoma.

Nat Protoc 2019 02;14(2):541-555

Edwin L. Steele Laboratories, Department of Radiation Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Neurofibromatosis type II (NF2) is a disease that lacks effective therapies. NF2 is characterized by bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VSs) that cause progressive and debilitating hearing loss, leading to social isolation and increased rates of depression. A major limitation in NF2 basic and translational research is the lack of animal models that allow the full spectrum of research into the biology and molecular mechanisms of NF2 tumor progression, as well as the effects on neurological function.

Transoral Marsupialization of a Large Dermoid Cyst.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Apr 11;77(4):753-756. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Consultant and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Bristol Royal Infirmary NHS Trust, Bristol, UK.

True dermoid cysts are rare congenital entities with a predilection for periorbital, floor-of-mouth, and submental areas in the head and neck region. They are usually asymptomatic unless they substantially enlarge, causing pain or difficulty in swallowing, breathing, speech, or vision, depending on their location. Conventionally, complete excision is the treatment of choice. Read More

Rapidly Enlarging Malignant Proliferating Trichilemmal Tumor in a Young Female

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 12;17(12):1325-1327

Malignant proliferating trichilemmal tumors are rare adnexal neoplasms that most commonly occur on the scalp in elderly women. These tumors are associated with recurrence and even nodal or distant metastatic spread. Here we describe a 38-year-old patient who presented with a scalp nodule that was diagnosed as a high-grade malignant proliferating trichilemmal tumor. Read More

The link between idiopathic intracranial hypertension, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome: exploration of a shared pathophysiology.

J Pain Res 2018 10;11:3129-3140. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Research Unit, University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium,

Purpose: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IICH) is a condition characterized by raised intracranial pressure (ICP), and its diagnosis is established when the opening pressure measured during a lumbar puncture is elevated >20 cm HO in nonobese patients or >25 cm HO in obese patients. Papilledema is caused by forced filling of the optic nerve sheath with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Other common but underappreciated symptoms of IICH are neck pain, back pain, and radicular pain in the arms and legs resulting from associated increased spinal pressure and forced filling of the spinal nerves with CSF.

Ameloblastoma: Management and Outcome.

Cureus 2018 Oct 10;10(10):e3437. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Otolaryngology, Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, PAK.

Introduction Ameloblastoma is a locally destructive tumor with a propensity for recurrence if not entirely excised. Management of ameloblastoma poses a challenge for all involved in the field of head and neck surgery because successful treatment requires not only adequate resection but also a functional and aesthetically acceptable reconstruction of the residual defect. Methods Patients who had histologically proven ameloblastoma between 1991 and 2009 were identified from the database of Aga Khan University Hospital. Read More
