Rhinogenic headache in pediatric and adolescent patients: an evidence-based review.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ.

Background: Although some causes of rhinogenic headache, such as acute sinusitis, have clear diagnostic criteria, others, such as "sinus headache" and mucosal contact points, are more nebulous. Misdiagnosis of these entities and primary headaches may result in unnecessary medical or surgical treatment. The purpose of this systematic review is to delineate current understanding of diagnosis and treatment of rhinogenic headaches, including sinus and mucosal contact point headaches, in children.

Klinikai Központ, Gyermekgyógyászati Klinika, Pécsi Tudományegyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Pécs, József Attila u. 7., 7623.

The respiratory infections are the most common presentations and leading cause of morbidity and mortality in primary immunodeficiencies. The pathogen or spectrum of pathogens may be characteristic for the underlying primary immunodeficiency, and that knowledge plays an important role in the empirical treatment or prevention of the infections, or, conversely, the identification of an unusual pathogen may raise the suspicion on an immunodeficiency. Apart from the acute respiratory infections, chronic lung diseases are also common complications. Read More

[Acute sinusitis in children with severe intracranial complications: two cases report].

Authors:

Lin Chung Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi 2018 Nov;32(21):1672-1673

In the past year, two cases of acute rhinosinusitis have been treated in our department. The intracranial complications of acute sinusitis in children are rare in recent years,which is associated with the low immunity of children,and the untimely treatment of acute infection.The combination of CT and MRI examination can determine the type,scope,location of intracranial complications of acute sinusitis in children with acute sinusitis.

ACR Appropriateness Criteria Sinusitis-Child.

J Am Coll Radiol 2018 Nov;15(11S):S403-S412

Specialty Chair, Riley Hospital for Children Indiana University, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Sinusitis is common in children that usually resolves spontaneously. Imaging is not part of the standard of care for initial diagnosis, however may be necessary in cases with persistent or chronic sinusitis to guide surgical intervention, or to rule out intracranial and vascular complications of sinusitis. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the leading imaging modalities. Read More

Rhinosinusitis in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients: Analysis of 4562 Transplanted Patients.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2018 Oct 26:1945892418808717. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

1 Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Rabin Medical Center, Petah Tikva, Israel.

Introduction: Survival rates of solid organ transplant recipients are steadily increasing. Chronic immunosuppression is a key to sustain the transplanted organ. Thus, these patients are at a higher risk for fulminant disease and severe complications of rhinosinusitis (RS). Read More

The role of galactomannan Aspergillus antigen in diagnosing acute invasive fungal sinusitis.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Jan 25;9(1):60-66. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Otolaryngology, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Winston Salem, NC.

Background: Pathologic diagnosis remains the gold standard for final diagnosis of acute invasive fungal sinusitis (AIFS); however, other less invasive tests could suggest the presence of AIFS in at-risk populations where early diagnosis is crucial. Serum galactomannan Aspergillus antigen has been shown to correlate with a diagnosis of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis; however, it has not adequately been evaluated in regard to AIFS. The objective of this study is to evaluate the statistical relevance of galactomannan in predicting diagnosis of AIFS. Read More

The effect of maxillary sinus antrostomy size on the sinus microbiome.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Jan 25;9(1):30-38. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Arizona College of Medicine, Tucson, AZ.

Background: The optimal maxillary antrostomy size to surgically treat sinusitis is not well known. In this study, we examined clinical metrics of disease severity and symptom scores, measured secreted inflammatory markers, and characterized the sinus microbiome to determine if there were significant differences in outcome between different maxillary ostial sizes.

Methods: Prospective randomized, single-blinded clinical trial enrolling 12 individuals diagnosed with recurrent acute or chronic rhinosinusitis. Read More

Maxillary sinus pain with radiolucent sinuses due to agenesis of the membranous ostium.

Eur Ann Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Dis 2019 Feb 19;136(1):43-46. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Service ORL et chirurgie cervico-faciale, hôpitaux de Brabois, centre hospitalier universitaire de Nancy, CHRU Nancy, rue du Morvan, 54511 Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy cedex, France.

Introduction: The absence of opacities on CT scan usually eliminates paranasal sinus disease as a cause of facial pain. The authors report a case, which constitutes an exception to this general rule, corresponding to a new aetiology of sinus pain.

Case Report: A 16-year-old boy presented with very painful "recurrent acute sinusitis" triggered by pressure changes (altitude, diving, surfing), with no sinus opacity on CT scan. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, 601 North Caroline Street, 6th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21287, USA. Electronic address:

Some of the most common rhinologic disorders that may present to the primary care provider include disorders of hemostasis, such as epistaxis, or sinonasal inflammatory disorders, such as allergic rhinitis and acute or chronic rhinosinusitis. This article is written with the intent to review these common rhinologic conditions for primary care providers and to summarize symptoms, diagnostic testing, differential diagnosis, and management/treatment approaches.

Surgical debridement for acute invasive fungal rhinosinusitis during the pre-engraftment phase of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: Two case reports.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Oct;97(42):e12696

Department of Haematology, China Aerospace Central Hospital.

Rationale: Surgical intervention may be not a contraindication for acute invasive fungal rhinosinusitis (AIFR) during the pre-engraftment period of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT).

Patient Concerns: We present 2 cases involving patients with AIFR in the pre-engraftment phase of allo-HSCT.

Diagnoses: Both patients received surgical debridement combined with systemic antifungal treatment. Read More

Retrobulbar optic neuropathy associated with sphenoid sinus mucormycosis.

Neurol Clin Neurosci 2018 Sep 10;6(5):146-147. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Department of Neurology JA Toride Medical Center Toride Ibaraki Japan.

Because fungi usually spread from the paranasal sinuses to the orbital apex in invasive fungal sinusitis (IFS), IFS often presents as an orbital apex syndrome (OAS) characterized by dysfunction of cranial nerves II, III, IV, V1, and VI. We report a case of sphenoid sinus mucormycosis that presented as isolated retrobulbar optic neuropathy. A 94-year-old woman presented with acute blindness in the right eye. Read More

Perioperative Risk Factors Associated With Morbidity and Mortality Following Pediatric Inpatient Sinus Surgery.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2018 Oct 17:3489418805504. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

4 Department of Anesthesiology, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA.

Objectives: Pediatric sinus surgery is indicated for a wide range of sinonasal and skull base pathologies, but it is most commonly performed for recalcitrant chronic rhinosinusitis or complicated acute sinusitis. The authors aim to report medical risk factors of morbidity and mortality following inpatient sinus surgery in the pediatric population.

Methods: Using data from the Kids' Inpatient Database from 2003 to 2012, patients with International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, procedure codes for primary sinus surgery were identified. Read More

Sinusitis in Children.

Pediatr Ann 2018 Oct;47(10):e396-e401

Acute bacterial sinusitis (ABS) mostly occurs as a complication of acute viral upper respiratory tract infection (URI), which is a common condition encountered in an outpatient setting. ABS manifests with three different presentations, most commonly as persistent symptoms of viral URI (nasal drainage and or cough) for more than 10 days. ABS is also diagnosed when the patient presents with severe symptoms of a URI accompanied by fever >102. Read More
