Paranasal sinus fungus balls occur usually in single sinus, most frequently the maxillary sinus. Multisinus localization was found only 6% in the largest review of this disease entity. Even multiple sinuses involved, these sinuses were mostly contiguous. Bilateral involvement was rare in the literature. Nevertheless, there has never been a ...

Osteomas of the paranasal sinuses are slow-growing, benign tumours most frequently found in the frontal sinus with an incidence that varies from 47% to 80% of the cases; there are often no symptoms and they are diagnosed by chance during an X-ray examination. When there are symptoms, they are usually ...

We describe a 22-year-old woman with neck skin sinus tract that developed as a consequence of dental infection. The patient was treated twice in an inappropriate way with recurrence of the sinus tract. We opted for an extraction of the tooth. This case illustrates the need for cooperative diagnostic referrals ...

Autogenous materials are considered the gold standard when indicated for frontal sinus obliteration; however, alloplastic alternatives obviate the need for a second surgical site, eliminate donor site morbidity, and reduce operating room time. A variety of different alloplastic materials have been used for this purpose, but no report to date ...

We report two girls with a typical presentation of sinus pericranii. Both patients received total excision of the subgaleal masses with complete obliteration of the communications to the intracranial portion. However, different gross appearances, neuroimaging findings and intraoperative findings were found. It took more time and attention to control the ...

We report 3 cases of bilateral orbital sclerosing inflammation and review the literatures concerning bilateral idiopathic orbital inflammation. We found that when idiopathic orbital inflammation presents as a bilaterally diffuse retrobulbar apical mass, the sclerosing subtype must be considered first, and an orbital biopsy should be performed. The present cases ...

We describe a rare neurogenic tumour presenting as a pilonidal sinus. This case illustrates the pitfalls associated with the management of a commonly occurring surgical condition. Pilonidal sinuses are often the province of trainee surgeons and while ependymomas are rare, this example emphasises the need to send the pilonidal sinus ...

BACKGROUND: Primary and secondary optic nerve sheath meningiomas (ONSMs) are neoplasms that account for a large proportion of optic nerve and orbital tumors. The diagnosis is not always straightforward and is based on the appropriate clinical findings and neuroimaging. Biopsy or surgical intervention may occasionally be necessary but is associated ...

In this case report we describe an 80-year-old man with sick sinus syndrome (SSS) who developed syncope attacks. The diagnosis of SSS was based on electrocardiographic evidence of markedly prolonged sinus arrests associated with syncope attacks while in hospital. The patient was given cilostazol, an antithrombotic agent that selectively inhibits ...

Extramedullary plasmacytomas (EMPs) are localized plasma cell neoplasms that occur within the soft tissues; by definition they cannot occur within bone. They account for 1-2% of all plasma cell growths and have a great predilection for the upper respiratory tract, without specific manifestations. Males are more frequently affected during the ...

Preauricular sinuses (ear pits) are common congenital abnormalities. Usually asymptomatic, they manifest as small dells adjacent to the external ear near the anterior margin of the ascending limb of the helix, most frequently on the right side. Preauricular sinuses can be either inherited or sporadic. When inherited, they show an ...

Mucoceles of the sphenoid sinus are rare and may frequently remain undiagnosed until symptoms due to compression of surrounding structures set in. In such cases, the optic nerve, because of its close proximity to the sphenoid sinus, is at risk, and pressure exerted by the mucocele may result in visual ...

A sphenoid mucocele often presents late due to its deep-seated anatomical site. It has a varied presentation, due to its close relationship to the cavernous sinus and the base of the skull. It can present initially to the ophthalmologist with ocular complaints. In the present paper, the authors present two ...

Pilonidal sinus is a well-recognized condition that occurs most commonly in the sacrococcygeal area of younger men. It is hypothesized to be an acquired chronic inflammation condition due mainly to hair trapped beneath the surface. A pilonidal sinus in the sacrococcygeal region is associated with recurrent infection, abscess formation, cellulitis, ...

The Holter monitor electrocardiogram was taken from a 15-year-old male athlete. Intermittent right bundle branch block frequently occurred at rest. When sinus cycles gradually lengthened, sinus impulses were conducted to the ventricles with right bundle branch block (RBBB) in succession. When, thereafter, sinus cycles gradually shortened, sinus impulses were conducted ...

Vascular tumors are rarely encountered in the paranasal sinuses. When they do arise there, they can be life-threatening because of the risk of bleeding. Embolization alone and in combination with surgical resection has been the mainstay of treatment. We report the case of a prepubertal girl who experienced two recurrences ...

The authors describe a previously unreported malformation involving paired, bilaterally symmetrical dermal sinus tracts in the retro-auricular area, both of which passed through the asterion and posterior fossa dura mater to end intracranially. Cranial dermal sinus tracts are congenital lesions that virtually always originate from the midline scalp posteriorly at ...
