Tumefactive fibroinflammatory lesion is an idiopathic fibroinflammatory process of the head and neck region.

We report the ...

The multiple etiologies proposed in the literature for burning mouth symptoms (BMS) make definitive clinical diagnosis and treatment difficult. Proposed etiologies can be divided into local systemic, and psychogenic factors. Part I of this two-part article provides a review of the BMS literature focusing on local etiological factors and possible ...

When shoulder movements become restricted in all directions, the literature reports that contracture of the joint capsule is not present in every case. These findings suggest a different underlying pathology in some cases, which restricts shoulder movements in a manner resembling contracture. In order to investigate the concept of another ...

Fifteen femoral head remnants were removed at revision of an uncemented double cup arthroplasty and were investigated by histological methods. Nine showed resorption of the head, partly due to osteoporosis by stress protection, preexistent pseudocysts, or osteonecrosis.

Facial hemihypertrophy, first described by Beck in 1836, aroused some interest in the early part of this century among European and American clinicians. However, a search of the otolaryngologic literature failed to reveal hemihypertrophy of the head and neck area as a well-recognized entity. We recently encountered a case of ...

The origin of squamous papillae of the vulvar vestibule is controversial. Although some are considered as asymptomatic normal variants of pelvic anatomy, a review of 12 cases of vulvar squamous papillae in patients visiting the Infectious Diseases Clinic at UCLA reveals a distinctly symptomatic variety.

We found that fibreoptic bronchoscopy was a useful, simple, safe and accurate method in the diagnosis of inhalation injury, determining the type, the site and the extent of damage sustained. The most common mucosal damage was erythema and oedema of the supraglottic and glottic tissues, though in a few cases ...
