The incidence of fungal infections of burn wounds is increasing because of the dramatic improvement in antibacterial chemotherapy and burn wound care. Species of Fusarium, common soil fungi and plant pathogens, are rarely isolated from burn wounds, and invasive disease due to these organisms is also rare. Therefore, a case ...

Extracardiac rhabdomyomas are rare benign neoplasms that in the past have been divided by histologic criteria into adult and fetal types. In this series, 15 previously unpublished cases are presented and analyzed in combination with 51 acceptable cases from the literature. The adult type of rhabdomyoma occurs almost exclusively in ...

Fractures of the neck of femur under the age of 14 years are so rare that few surgeons have much experience with them. Hamilton (1961) predicted that an orthopaedic surgeon would see one case in a lifetime, Quinlan et al (1980) reviewing the literature from 1885 when the first case ...

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare condition that tends to occur in the head and neck in children. This disease carried a very poor prognosis until 10 years ago when a multidisciplinary approach (with surgery, therapy and multiple drug chemotherapy) was instituted. In this article a review of the literature on ...

Reference is made to five cases appearing as expansive lesions in the head and neck. In all cases angiography allowed a precise diagnosis of the nature and extent of the lesion. Biopsy which could have been hazardous was thus unnecessary. Moreover, therapeutic embolization in a case of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma ...

Heterotopic gastric epithelium in the head and neck area is a little-known entity, unsuspected by clinician and pathologist alike. We have reviewed the literature and discovered 14 cases of this entity. While previous reviews of the subject have, unfortunately, included reports of cases with heterotopic intestinal epithelium, our study addresses ...

Three cases of 'vertical' hydrocephalus are described, characterised by absence of the bones of the skull vault, progressive vertical soft-tissue growth of the head, and normal occipito-frontal head circumference. The management of the condition by ventriculo-peritoneal shunt is discussed, and a theory proposed as to the causation of this unusual ...

Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, in both osseous and extra-skeletal forms, has a decided predilection for the head and neck region. The two cases presented in this report affirm this tendency and also illustrate the capricious biologic behavior of the neoplasms as manifested by the 30 additional cases recorded in the literature. Histopathologic ...

Acne keloidalis is characterized by infected keloid-like nodules in the short-cut nuchal region probably caused by recurving, ingrowing hairshafts. A case with a deep, partial-thickness burn of the hair-bearing part of the face of a man is reported. After healing, the patient started shaving himself thus inducing a severe state ...

A case of accidental shock to the head, caused by a cardiac defibrillator, is presented. The shock resulted in minor burns and symptoms similar to those of postelectro-convulsive shock therapy (ECT). A physician participating in an advanced life support course, and familiar with the equipment, was the victim. An assumption ...

For 55 years much has been written about a peculiar benign intravascular process which can be misdiagnosed as angiosarcoma unless careful attention is paid by the pathologist to its benign cellular morphology and growth pattern. The cases reported in the literature demonstrate an increased incidence in the extremities and the ...

We present a case report of a patient with toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), associated with therapy with trimethoprin and sulfamethoxazole. Because of the similarity of TEN to an extensive partial-thickness burn, and the favorable response to the treatment used in burns, surgeons who treat burns should be familiar withe disease ...

The diagnosis of cervicofacial actinomycosis is usually not simple, but may be essential for adequate treatment. Cases seen in a Head and Neck Service illustrate some of the many guises under which actinomycosis may be concealed, and a review of recent literature confirms its propensity to be a masquerader. A ...

Fantasies concerning an amputated limb can contribute to the occurrence of persistent phantom limb pain. We report a case in which burning pain perceived as located in the amputated lower extremities was related to the patient's feelings about incineration of the removed limbs against her wishes. Hypnotherapy involving elucidation of ...

Fractures of the radial head and neck occur frequently. Although reports in the literature advocate both operative and nonoperative modes of treatment, the trend is toward the nonoperative approach. In many instances this yields results that are comparable, if not superior, to those obtained by surgical intervention-as in the 62-year-old ...
Poelman J R - - 1977
Upon ingestion of lye and its compounds severe corrosive lesions may develop not only in the oesophagus but also of the stomach. These are frequently not recognized until life-threatening complications have set in. Two case histories are reported to point to the need for early endoscopic examinations. Brown-black discoloration of ...

Hexachlorophene (HCP), a chlorinated phenolic hydrocarbon with bacteriostatic properties against Staphylococcus, is used in a number of topical products. Absorption through normal and damaged human skin has been appreciated and neurologic changes have been described in experimental animals, but instances of human toxicity have been reported infrequently. A 10-year-old boy ...

Whereas lymphangiomas of the neck, axilla, or mediastinum are not uncommon in children, they are rarely found in the adult, and primary lymphangioma of bone is very rare. The authors report a case of multiple lymphangiomas of the neck, axilla, mediastinum, and bones in a 34-year-old man, which they believe ...

We present 14 free flap transfers, 9 of which were completely successful (74 percent), two of which were partial successes (14 percent), and 3 of which were failures (22 percent). All the 5 cases involving free flaps to the head and neck region were successful. In the 9 cases involving ...

A case of Curling's ulceration of the duodenum in a child with 50 per cent burns, requiring operative arrest of the bleeding, is reported, and this condition is reviewed. Inquiry among the surgical units treating burns in Great Britian showed that only 18 cases of alimentary bleeding had been seen ...

A case of profound hypochloremic alkalosis with hypopotassemia is reported, showing electrocardiographic changes of electrical alternans of the repolarization wave (probably the U wave) without any change in the QRS complex. Transient concomitant P-pulmonale was noted. Hypopotassemia is discussed as a possible mechanism for the development of the electrical alternans.

Hypernephroma is one of the most common visceral adenocarcinomas which metastasize to the head and neck. The metastasis may precede discovery of the primary or follow it. The most common sites of metastatic hypernephroma to the head and neck are the sinonasal tract, skin, cervical lymphatics, and mandible. Three cases ...

In a recent review of 100 cases of dental identification, 60 were involved with fire. This figure excluded 3 air crashes in which 120 victims died, and in which fire was of a minimal consideration. This preponderance of burn cases prompted some observations and some queries, relative to fire, their ...

This report calls attention to a bizarre, almost pathognomonic, cutaneous feature of lightning injury. It has been variously described as "lightning prints," "arborescent" burns, or "feathering," and has long been neglected in the dermatologic literature. Its recognition may be lifesaving in the unaccompanied comatose patient and is important because even ...

A transverse incision is reported with an oblique counterincision performed in such a manner as to satisfy all Halstedian criteria for tissue removal and to allow as little as possible skin incision to approach the clavicular area. Closure is planned so that there is no tenting of skin or limitation ...
Cavallo C A - - 1975
The third reported instance of chylothorax occurring after left radical neck dissection is presented and the literature reviewed. The pathogenesis appears to be lymphatic leakage in the neck with accumulation of chyle in the pleural space in spite of the absence of pneumothorax. The means for entry across an intact ...
Christiansen T A - - 1975
Five cases of enlogated styloid processes sent in a 12-month period prompted a review of this subject and a reevaluation of the condition as it relates to other neuralgias of the head and neck. We review the head and neck pain syndromes and offer diagnostic criteria that will aid in ...
