Spontaneous thrombosis of a vein of Galen malformation associated with acute sinusitis: a case report.

Childs Nerv Syst 2021 Feb 17. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Fundación Santafé de Bogotá, Carrera 7 No. 117 - 15, Bogotá, Colombia.

The vein of Galen malformation is caused by an abnormal shunting between choroidal arteries and the median prosencephalic vein during embryological development, leading to increased blood flow to the deep cerebral veins, intracranial damage, and systemic repercussions. Idiopathic spontaneous thrombosis of a vein of Galen malformation is rare, and its association with acute sinusitis has not been reported in the literature. We present the case of a girl with a postnatal diagnosis of a vein of Galen malformation at the age of 16 months, with secondary pulmonary hypertension that was adequately controlled with spironolactone.

Laryngorhinootologie 2021 Jan 20. Epub 2021 Jan 20.

ENT, St. Barbara-Klinik Hamm-Heessen, Hamm, Germany.

In recent years, an increasing number of dental infections of the maxillary sinus has been observed. A prerequisite for a bacterial infection of the maxillary sinus is the perforation of Schneider's membrane. Pathogenetically, the ostiomeatal unit is only secondarily involved due to the infection ascending from the maxillary sinus floor. Read More

Agreement between cone-beam computed tomography and functional endoscopic sinus surgery for detection of pathologies and anatomical variations of the paranasal sinuses in chronic rhinosinusitis patients: A prospective study.

Imaging Sci Dent 2020 Dec 15;50(4):299-307. Epub 2020 Dec 15.

Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences, Kermanshah, Iran.

Purpose: The diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis requires a comprehensive knowledge of the signs and symptoms of the disease and an accurate radiographic assessment. Computed tomography (CT) is the superior imaging modality for diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis. However, considering the lower dose and higher resolution of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) compared to CT, this study aimed to assess the agreement between the findings of CBCT and functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS).

Asymptomatic sinusitis as an origin of infection-related glomerulonephritis manifesting steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jun;99(25):e20572

Department of Nephrology, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Bunkyo.

Rationale: Infection is a major trigger or pathogenic origin in a substantial proportion of glomerulonephritis (GN) patients, typically manifesting infection-related GN (IRGN). Various microorganisms, infection sites, and clinical and histopathological features are involved in IRGN. Once an infectious origin is identified and successfully eradicated, nephrotic syndrome or kidney dysfunction is spontaneously resolved. Read More
