Aspergillosis in immunocompromised patients with haematological malignancies.

J BUON 2018 Dec;23(7):7-10

ENT Department, Medical School, University of Thessaly, Larissa, Greece.

Aspergillosis, which is saprophytic in nature, is known to cause massive destruction of paranasal sinuses in immunocompromised hosts, but in immunocompetent individuals invasive aspergillosis is rare. Diagnosis is posed from history, physical examination including anterior and posterior rhinoscopy, endoscopy of the nose and paranasal sinuses, radiological findings (CT and/or MRI), fungus cultures and histopathological examination. Non-specific presenting symptoms provide time for infection to extent from sinuses to vital surroundings such as bony, vascular and central nervous system structures, thereby increasing morbidity and mortality.

[Unexpected death due to eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Churg-Strauss syndrome)].

An Sist Sanit Navar 2019 Feb 5;0(0):67385. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

.

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), or Churg-Strauss syndrome, is a rare disease characterized by disseminated necrotizing vasculitis with extravascular granulomas occurring among patients with asthma and tissue eosinophilia. Clinically, it presents in various ways and progresses in three phases: prodromic (asthma and rhino-sinusitis), eosinophilic (peripheral eosinophilia and organ involvement), and vasculitic (clinical manifestations due to small vessel vasculitis). The differential diagnosis of EGPA principally includes eosinophilic and vasculitic disorders, early treatment is needed to avoid a fatal outcome. Read More

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, International University of Catalonia, C/Josep Trueta Sn, Sant Cugat del Vallés, C.P 08195, Barcelona, Spain.

Background: After tooth loss, the posterior maxilla is usually characterized by limited bone height secondary to pneumatization of the maxillary sinus and/or collapse of the alveolar ridge that preclude in many instances the installation of dental implants. In order to compensate for the lack of bone height, several treatment options have been proposed. These treatment alternatives aimed at the installation of dental implants with or without the utilization of bone grafting materials avoiding the perforation of the Schneiderian membrane. Read More

Department of Surgery and Translational Medicine, Clinic of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Careggi University Hospital, University of Florence, Largo Brambilla, 3-50134, Florence, Italy.

Purpose: Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common autosomal recessive disease in Caucasian population. Due to its pathological mechanism, chronic rhino sinusitis (CRS) associated or not with nasal polyposis usually occurs in adults and affects close to one-half of all CF patients. The goal of our work was to evaluate the impact of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS) in the quality of life (QoL) of the CF patients and demonstrate an improvement of the functional outcomes in the patients underwent the surgical procedure rather than in the not treated ones, particulary in lung transplant patients.

Radiographic Nuances in Allergic Fungal Rhinosinusitis.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2019 Jan 24:1945892419825695. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

2 Division of Rhinology and Sinus Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina.

Background: Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) is characterized by higher revision endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) rates and unique radiographic features when compared to chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP) or chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyposis (CRSsNP).

Objective: We hypothesized that an increased frequency of concha bullosa in AFRS or other radiographic nuances might allow for accumulation of allergic mucin and contribute to increased ESS revision rates.

Methods: A retrospective cohort study was performed. Read More
