Clinical Case Presentation on Absence Seizures Diagnosis and Treatment Care Services and Outcomes in an Adult Patient.

J Neurosci Rural Pract 2019 Jan-Mar;10(1):154-157

Department of Pharmacy Practice, SRM College of Pharmacy, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu, India.

Absence seizures are often associated with impaired or loss of consciousness clinically proved to have an impact on motor and cognitive abnormalities of the nerve cells of the brain. Seizure admits several etiopathophysiological events leading to several neurofunctional changes in the reticulothalamocortical circuitry zones of the central nervous system. This paves the episodes of absence seizure events. Read More

Des Moines University, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Department of Anatomy, 3200 Grand Ave, Des Moines, Iowa, 50312.

Among humans, superiorly located maxillary sinus ostia (MSO) result in drainage complications and maxillary sinus (MS) disease.

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

Predictive ability of bedside nasal endoscopy to diagnose invasive fungal sinusitis in a pediatric population.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Dec 19;115:82-88. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Division of Otolaryngology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

Introduction: Invasive fungal sinusitis (IFS) is a rare but deadly clinical entity that occurs in immunocompromised patients. Diagnosis in children typically requires operative biopsies under general anesthesia, which has associated risks. Findings on bedside nasal endoscopy (BNE) can be used with history, exam, and imaging to determine the need for surgery, however, the accuracy of this tool has not been established among pediatric patients.

Can Volumetric and Morphological Variants of Sphenoid Sinuses Influence Sinuses Opacification?

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov;29(8):2344-2347

Department of Biomedical Sciences for Health, University of Milan.

Improvements in computed tomography and in functional endoscopic sinus surgery have recently increased interest toward paranasal sinus anatomy and anatomic variations that can be observed in patients affected by sinusitis. Isolated sphenoid sinusitis is a relatively rare pathology, often related to nonspecific symptoms, therefore making diagnosis difficult. The correlation between this type of sinusitis and anatomical variants remains unclear. Read More

Department of Neurology, The Affiliated Yantai Yuhuangding Hospital of Qingdao University, Yantai, China.

Fungal sphenoid sinusitis is easily misdiagnosed in clinic, particularly for patients with normal immunological status. Due to the anatomic characteristics of sphenoid sinus, patients presented with various nonspecific symptoms and complications. Headache is the most common presentation, but location of headache is not fixed. Read More

Reported is the case of a 79-year-old woman initially diagnosed with periorbital abscess on the background of a recent upper respiratory tract infection. Unexpectedly, intraoperative findings were that of a haematoma rather than an abscess. Subperiosteal orbital haematoma (SOH) is an extremely rare complication of rhinosinusitis. Read More

Background: Acute rhinosinusitis is an acute infection of the nasal passages and paranasal sinuses that lasts less than four weeks. Diagnosis of acute rhinosinusitis is generally based on clinical signs and symptoms in ambulatory care settings. Technical investigations are not routinely performed, nor are they recommended in most countries. Read More

Auto-obliteration of maxillary sinuses through osteoneogenesis in children with cystic fibrosis: A possible new way to reduce morbidity.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Nov - Dec;39(6):737-740. Epub 2018 Aug 18.

Department of Otolaryngology HNS LSUHSC, United States of America. Electronic address:

Background: Cystic Fibrosis is an autosomal recessive disorder with a mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator gene, leading to dysregulation of epithelial fluid transport, dehydration of airway surfaces and impaired mucociliary function in the sinuses, lungs, pancreas and other organs. This leads to thickened secretion which blocks the sinus ostia and promotes chronic bacterial overgrowth and destruction of the mucosa. Chronic rhinosinusitis in cystic fibrosis patients leads to a decreased quality of life involving increased hospitalizations, infections, pneumonia, and acute exacerbations, warranting multiple sinus surgeries.

Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery and Anatomy, Ribeirão Preto Clinics Hospital, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, BRA.

Pott's puffy tumor is a rare and severe complication of frontal sinusitis, characterized by the progressive swelling of the frontal soft tissues secondary to a subperiosteal abscess. Radiological imaging with ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are important diagnostic tools in establishing diagnosis and treatment planning. Early surgery along with intravenous antibiotics are required in order to achieve a good recovery. Read More
