Parosteal lipoma is a rare benign tumor that is composed mainly of benign mature lipocytes, and it has an intimate association with the underlying periosteum of affected bone. Parosteal lipoma involving the rib is quite rare. We believe that only four cases have been previously reported in the English literature. ...

Lipomas of the larynx are rare. When they do occur, they are important because some require that the surgeon perform a tracheotomy to prevent a fatal airway obstruction. We report a case of myxolipoma-that is, a lipoma with foci of myxomatous degeneration-of the epiglottis in a 56-year-old woman. We successfully ...

Tetanus is a life-threatening infection that is rare in the developed world. Trismus and dysphagia are the most common presenting symptoms, and thus oral and maxillofacial surgeons may be involved in the early stages of evaluation of the patient. Early diagnosis helps initiate prompt management and referral for intensive therapy. ...

Primary mesenteric lipoma is rare, with fewer than 50 cases described in English-language literature, and those causing bowel obstructions are even more uncommon. The long stalk of the lipoma that caused secondary volvulus and rapid ischemic change in our patient is worth reporting because of its rarity and distinctive picture ...
