Red ear syndrome: Perspectives for the otolaryngologist.

Ear Nose Throat J 2018 Dec;97(12):E11-E14

Department of Otolaryngology, Lenox Hill Hospital/Northwell Health, 110-11 72nd Ave., Suite 1B, Forest Hills, NY 11375, USA.

Red ear syndrome (RES) is an unusual, often unrecognized condition that has rarely been reported in the otolaryngology literature despite the presence of symptoms and associated disorders of relevance to the otolaryngologist. When present, RES may have diagnostic value when uncertainties arise in cases of sinus headache and referred otalgia. Despite the appearance of a distinctive red ear, as well as symptoms and associated disorders relating to otolaryngology, discussion of RES is generally limited to neurology-based publications.

Symptomatology Correlations Between the Diaphragm and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Cureus 2018 Jul 23;10(7):e3036. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Osteopathy, School of Osteopathic Centre for Research and Studies, Rome, ITA.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most debilitating and common gastrointestinal disorders; nevertheless, its pathophysiology is still unclear. It affects 11% of the world's population, and is characterized by alternating periods of pain and/or motility disorders with periods of remission and without any evidence of any structural and functional organic variation. It has been recently proposed that an altered contractile ability of the diaphragm muscle might adversely influence intestinal motility. Read More

a Departamento de Fisioterapia , Centro Superior de Estudios Universitarios La Salle, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid , Aravaca , Madrid , Spain.

The purpose of this prospective case series was to observe and describe changes in patients with chronic cervico-craniofacial pain of muscular origin treated with multimodal physiotherapy based on a biobehavioral approach. Nine patients diagnosed with chronic myofascial temporomandibular disorder and neck pain were treated with 6 sessions over the course of 2 weeks including: (1) orthopedic manual physiotherapy (joint mobilizations, neurodynamic mobilization, and dynamic soft tissue mobilizations); (2) therapeutic exercises (motor control and muscular endurance exercises); and (3) patient education. The outcome measures of craniofacial (CF-PDI) and neck disability (NDI), kinesiophobia (TSK-11) and catastrophizing (PCS), and range of cervical and mandibular motion (ROM) and posture were collected at baseline, and at 2 and 14 weeks post-baseline.

Post Herpetic Frey's Syndrome.

Ann Maxillofac Surg 2017 Jul-Dec;7(2):278-281

Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Government Dental College and Hospital, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

Frey's syndrome is characterized by unilateral sweating and flushing of the skin in the area of the parotid gland, occurring during meal, or on salivary stimulation. It is a common complication following surgery/injury in the parotid gland region/temporomandibular joint surgery; however, very few cases have been reported of its occurrence following herpetic infection. It is important for the clinician to recognize its unusual symptoms as early as possible to prevent its potential negative social and psychological effect on the patient. Read More
