  • Asystole during Suspension Laryngoscopy: Case Report, Literature Review,
           and Prophylactic Strategies

    • Abstract: Transoral laryngeal procedures are considered minimally invasive but may trigger important complications such as severe bradycardia and even asystole mediated by vagal reflex. The literature on this subject is rare. This article aims to review the literature, explain associated mechanisms, establish prophylactic strategies, and highlight the importance of intraoperative safety protocols.

  • Eustachian Tube Foreign Body with Endoscopic-Assisted Surgical Removal

    • Abstract: Objectives. Foreign bodies of the external and middle ear are not uncommon; however, foreign bodies in the eustachian tube are rare. Here we describe the presentation, imaging, and endoscopic-assisted surgical management of a case of eustachian tube foreign body. Methods. A 34-year-old male was seen for evaluation of foreign body of the left eustachian tube while working with metal at a machine shop. Imaging and surgical management are highlighted and review of available literature regarding foreign bodies of the eustachian tube is presented. Results. A CT scan revealed a foreign body present approximately 1 cm into the bony eustachian tube. The patient underwent middle ear exploration which required endoscopic assistance to adequately visualize the foreign body. The foreign body was unable to be removed and required the creation of a bony tunnel lateral to the eustachian tube for visualization and access to the foreign body. Conclusions. This report presents a rare case of eustachian tube foreign body. Use of the endoscope during the surgical removal greatly enhanced the ease and safety of removal. This report also highlights the importance of ear protection with any machining and welding work.

  • An Unusual Tumor of the Ear: Pilomatricoma in a Middle-Aged Woman

    • Abstract: Pilomatricoma is a benign tumor arising from hair follicle matrix cells, presenting as an asymptomatic, firm, slow growing, mobile, superficial skin nodule typically in children. This lesion with an atypical clinical presentation is frequently misdiagnosed as other skin lesions and even as malignant entities regardless of detailed cytological, imaging examinations; the site of occurrence is one of the keys to accurate diagnosis. Here, we present a case of pilomatrixoma involving the ear, the cymba conchae of the auricle, which is an extremely rare site for the lesion in a 52-year-old woman. The present case suggests that this benign tumor needs to be included in the differential diagnosis in patients who present with an atypical auricular lesion.

  • Brainstem and Cerebellar Involvement in Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

    • Abstract: We present a case of a 62-year-old Caucasian male with laryngeal cancer and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome otherwise known as herpes zoster oticus due to reactivation of the varicella zoster virus. Classic findings include the triad of ipsilateral facial paralysis, otic pain, and herpetic lesions in the sensory supply of the facial nerve. The common pathogenesis is associated with anterograde axonal reactivation of the varicella zoster virus in the geniculate ganglion. Unique features of our case include retrograde transaxonal spread of the varicella-zoster virus from the geniculate ganglion into the brainstem and cerebellum including involvement of the abducens nucleus, facial nucleus, middle cerebral peduncle, and inferior cerebellar peduncle. This presented as left facial paralysis, left sixth nerve palsy, horizontal diplopia to the left lateral gaze, profound truncal ataxia, and left-sided dysmetria. Clinical awareness that Ramsay Hunt syndrome may also involve the brainstem and cerebellum is critical in evaluating the clinical neurologic findings and expanding the diagnostic workup to include brain magnetic resonance imaging and cerebrospinal fluid analysis, including varicella zoster polymerase chain reaction. Encephalitis requires longer duration administration of high-dose intravenous acyclovir in conjunction with steroids. Delays in treatment are often associated with unsatisfactory outcomes with extensive residual deficits.

  • Two Cases of Allergic Fungal Sinusitis with Differing Postoperative Course

    • Abstract: Allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) often develops in unilateral paranasal sinuses, which must be differentiated from tumors. When AFS develops on both sides, however, it must be differentiated from eosinophilic chronic sinusitis with evident eosinophilic infiltration at nasal/paranasal sinus mucosa; both conditions are highly recurrent and commonly considered intractable paranasal sinusitis. Surgical correction is the primary treatment method for AFS, as it is essential to connect the paranasal sinus communication to ensure exhaustive resection of the pathologic mucosa and for nasal steroids to reach each paranasal sinus. We recently encountered two AFS cases with differing postoperative courses. Case 1 showed evident exacerbation in the computed tomography findings, which suggests progression to eosinophilic sinusitis. Case 2 showed a benign prognosis without recurrence. Close long-term follow-up should be mandatory after surgery for the treatment of AFS.

  • Microdebrider-Assisted Rhinophyma Excision

    • Abstract: Rhinophyma represents a progressive deformity of the nose which leads to cosmetic disfigurement and has a significant impact on the patient’s quality of life. This pathological entity originates from hyperplasia of sebaceous gland tissue, connective tissue, and vessels of the nose and is associated with rosacea and more specifically, stage III rosacea. Surgical treatment is the method of choice. We present five cases of rhinophyma that we treated with microdebrider-assisted excision. The procedure was divided in two main steps: scalpel excision of the main bulk of the rhinophyma and then further contouring with the microdebrider. All patients had weekly follow-up for the first four weeks, and then three-monthly. All patients had uneventful recovery and satisfactory cosmetic outcomes. No postoperative infections or other complications were reported in our case series. The use of the microdebrider reduces the operating time, preserves the islands of skin regeneration, and allows finer manipulations than the standard scalpel techniques. Microdebrider-assisted rhinophyma excision is a safe approach, with good aesthetic results. Larger series of patients need to be examined in order to establish the value of the method.

  • Functional Olfactory Nerve Regeneration Demonstrated by Thallium-201
           Olfacto-Scintigraphy in Patients with Traumatic Anosmia: A Case Report

    • Abstract: Head trauma is one of the most common etiologies of olfactory dysfunction. It is difficult to use either the olfactory function test or magnetic resonance imaging to directly assess the course of damage to olfactory nerves. Thallium-201 (201Tl) olfacto-scintigraphy has been shown to be an able means for objectively assessing the olfactory nerve transport function. It is expected to be used to evaluate olfactory nerve regeneration after damage to the olfactory nerves. However, no such result has been reported. We present a patient who lost his olfactory function after experiencing head trauma. When his olfactory function remained anosmic, a 201Tl olfacto-scintigraphy showed no migration of 201Tl from the nasal mucosa to the olfactory bulb. After treatment with medicines and olfactory training, his olfactory function improved. A second 201Tl olfacto-scintigraphy showed an increased migration of 201Tl from the nasal mucosa to the olfactory bulb.

  • Bilateral Facial Paralysis and Deafness in a Child Treated for Acute
           Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    • Abstract: Involvement of the ear and temporal bone in acute leukemias are uncommon. We report a case of atypical mastoiditis with bilateral facial paralysis in a child diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). A 20-month-old male child was diagnosed with ALL and developed otorrhea unresponsive to antimicrobial treatment during the first week of chemotherapy followed by hearing loss, loss of balance, and bilateral facial paralysis. A CT scan of the mastoids showed cortical erosion of the temporal bone and presence of soft tissue contents filling the mastoid cells and external auditory canal bilaterally. Mastoidectomy was performed to collect material for analysis. Histopathologic examination of the material revealed an active chronic inflammatory process, with a moderate amount of plasma cells. Chemotherapy was reintroduced 3 weeks after the surgical procedure, and progressive improvement of otorrhea and imbalance was noted. Grade III House–Brackmann peripheral facial paralysis persisted on 6-month follow-up, and the patient is in rehabilitation program.

  • Successful Treatment of Adult-Onset Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis
           with CO2 Laser and Photodynamic Therapy

    • Abstract: Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is a noninvasive benign epithelial tumor caused by human papillomavirus. Clinically, it featured rapid growth, multifocus, and frequent recurrence. Though a number of therapies have been investigated, the recurrence after treatment is always a challenge. In this report, we describe a 27-year-old male patient with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis who was treated with CO2 laser therapy followed by 5-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT). There was no adverse reaction after treatment and no recurrence during the follow-up time.

  • A Case of Adult-Onset Periodic Fever, Aphthous Stomatitis, Pharyngitis,
           and Cervical Adenitis (PFAPA) Syndrome Responsive to Tonsillectomy in
           Japan

    • Abstract: Adult-onset periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and cervical adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome is a rare condition, having been reported in only three patients in Japan till date. While almost all pediatric PFAPA patients respond well to tonsillectomy, some European studies have reported that tonsillectomy may be ineffective for adult-onset PFAPA. All the Japanese patients with adult-onset PFAPA had been treated orally so far (cimetidine with or without prednisone), instead of tonsillectomy. We reported a case involving a 37-year-old Japanese man with PFAPA syndrome who presented with a history of febrile episodes associated with pharyngitis, cervical adenitis, and aphthous stomatitis for one year. The patient had been undergoing oral medication therapy without any significant improvement. Tonsillectomy was performed for the patient, and complete resolution of PFAPA was achieved. Our experience suggests that a tonsillectomy is a viable option for the treatment of adult-onset PFAPA.

  • An Interesting Unknown Combined Pathology in a Patient with Acute Balance
           Problem

    • Abstract: A 54-year-old woman with acute-onset nausea and vomiting presented to outpatient clinic. She had headache for 3 weeks. She had difficulty during tandem gait and was falling to the right. Otherwise, her neurological examination was normal. She had normal hearing. VNG analysis revealed spontaneous nystagmus beating to the left with optical fixation. However, she had horizontal and slightly down-beating gaze-evoked nystagmus at primary gaze position. Temporal bone CT and MRI showed widespread encephalitis of the right side of the brain and isolated destruction of the right superior semicircular canal. The patient was treated with high-dose combined antibiotics. She had remarkable recovery within 3 weeks.

  • Atypical Presentation of Giant Mandibular Aneurysmal Bone Cyst with
           Cemento-Ossifying Fibroma Mimicking Sarcoma

    • Abstract: Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are an uncommon osteolytic intraosseous bone lesions. ABCs commonly involve metaphysis of long bones and are rarely diagnosed in craniofacial bones. The World Health Organization (WHO) designates ABCs as benign, but locally destructive, rapidly growing masses. ABC can be clinically misdiagnosed as a malignant tumor. In this article, we present a case of a 12-year-old female patient who presented to a maxillofascial outpatient clinic complaining of huge jaw swelling over the past 3 months, which was clinically suggestive of sarcoma. Few reported cases in the English literature describe ABC presented with huge rapidly growing mass causing destructive bony lesion that was clinically mimic sarcoma, which initiates this case report. We also discuss the most important pathologic differential diagnosis of tumors with malignant behavior and review the literature.

  • Thyroglossal Duct Cyst Carcinoma in a Young Female: Case Report and Review
           of Literature

    • Abstract: Thyroglossal duct remnants form during embryologic development and can develop into a thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC). In rare cases, carcinoma is present within these cysts, most commonly papillary thyroid carcinoma. Diagnosis is difficult, but imaging and fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies can help with the diagnosis. Given the rarity of TGDC carcinoma, treatment is not well agreed upon and can include the Sistrunk procedure, thyroidectomy, nodal dissection, and postoperative radioactive iodine treatment. Here, we describe the presentation, workup, and treatment of a 20-year-old female with papillary thyroid carcinoma present within both a thyroglossal duct cyst and the thyroid gland.

  • Adult-Type Rhabdomyoma of the Omohyoid Muscle

    • Abstract: Rhabdomyomas are benign tumors composed of mesenchymal tissue and having a histologic appearance similar to skeletal muscle. Extracardiac rhabdomyomas are rare, and the majority of the adult subtype occur in the head and neck (H&N) region. Diagnosis can be challenging due to fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and core needle biopsy being suspicious for sampling error from surrounding muscle or concerning for rhabdomyosarcoma. We present a case of a slowly enlarging left neck mass in the strap musculature of a 45-year-old Hispanic male. Multiple FNA and core biopsies failed to establish a diagnosis, and excisional biopsy was pursued revealing a hypertrophied left inferior belly of the omohyoid muscle. Histological analysis was diagnostic of an adult-type extracardiac rhabdomyoma, with complete surgical excision being the gold standard treatment for these tumors. The patient had an uneventful recovery. Skeletal muscle tumors of the H&N are uncommon, and benign extracardiac rhabdomyoma must be considered in the differential diagnosis to prevent unnecessarily aggressive intervention and appropriate patient counseling before and after surgery.

  • Chondro-Osseous Respiratory Epithelial Adenomatoid Hamartoma (COREAH):
           Case Report and Literature Review

    • Abstract: Chondro-osseous respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma (COREAH) is an extremely rare lesion of the nasal cavity with only 11 reported cases in the literature. COREAH is of interest as it may be easily mistaken for other diseases of the nasal cavity with higher morbidity, which require significantly different management strategies. We report, to the best of our knowledge, the oldest documented case of COREAH in the literature: an 83-year-old female who presented with headaches and was found to have a posterior nasal septal lesion. Uniquely, the patient had sequential scans performed 1 year apart demonstrating only minor interval growth. We describe our experience in managing a patient with COREAH and review the world literature, to better define aspects of the history, presentation, and investigations that may allow differentiation from more sinister disease.

           the Literature

    • Abstract: Inverted papilloma (IP) with malignant transformation is rarely seen in the middle ear. Up to now, there have been 16 primary middle ear IPs reported in the English literature. Even though it is very rare in the middle ear, this pathology should be kept in mind for the differential diagnosis of middle ear masses. In this case, we report a 77-year-old female who had recurrent IP with malignant transformation and complication.

  • A Small Glomus Tympanicum Tumor Resected by Minimally Invasive Transcanal
           Endoscopic Approach

    • Abstract: We present a case of the transcanal endoscopic resection of a glomus tympanicum tumor. A 51-year-old woman presented with pulsatile tinnitus of the right ear persisting for 6 months. A reddish mass was observed through her tympanic membrane. A computed tomography scan revealed a small mass in the mesotympanum. She was diagnosed with a right-sided glomus tympanicum tumor. The glomus tympanicum tumor was classified as type 1 using the Glasscock–Jackson classification, class A using the Fisch classification, and class A1 using the modified Fisch and Mattox classification. The tumor was transcanally and completely resected by endoscopy without any complication. Before and after the surgery, pure-tone audiometry showed a normal hearing level. Preoperative right-sided pulsatile tinnitus resolved after the surgery. Transcanal endoscopic ear surgery is a favorable surgical method for small localized glomus tympanicum tumors.

  • Low-Grade Fibromyxoid Sarcoma of the Lateral Skull Base: Presentation of
           Two Cases

    • Abstract: Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a rare slow-growing malignant tumour with a deceptively benign histologic appearance. Herein, we report two cases of LGFMS with variable clinical presentations. The first case was a 17-year-old female who referred to our department due to deaf ear on the right together with ipsilateral gag reflex impairment and globus sensation in the pharynx. The second case was a 35-year-old female with recurrent LGFMS, suffering from headaches, vertigo, and episodes of loss of consciousness. LGFMS of the temporal bone is a rare pathology, and to the best of our knowledge, no such cases have been reported before.

  • A Case Report of Aggressive Chronic Rhinosinusitis with Nasal Polyps
           Mimicking Sinonasal Malignancy

    • Abstract: Introduction. Cases of extensive nasal polyps rarely occur and may mimic more aggressive lesions of the nose and paranasal sinuses. A case of extensive nasal polyposis with unusually aggressive behavior and its management is presented. Presentation of Case. A 27-year-old male patient visited the emergency department of a tertiary center, complaining of recurrent episodes of epistaxis. The patient presented with a large polypoid lesion protruding from the right nostril and producing asymmetry of the face. Diagnostic imaging illustrated a lesion of the right maxillary sinus producing excessive bone remodeling and extension into neighboring structures in every direction. Fine limits were noted, however, with no invasive characteristics. Biopsy under local anesthesia was performed, showing findings consistent with nonspecific inflammation. Open surgery through a lateral rhinotomy under general anesthesia was performed, and the mass was readily mobilized and removed. No macroscopic invasion of neighboring structures was noted. Permanent histology confirmed the diagnosis of nasal polyposis. Postoperative follow-up has shown no evidence of recurrence after 12 months. Conclusion. Nasal polyps do not typically expand in an aggressive manner, producing bone resorption or extending into neighboring structures. However, nasal polyposis should be included in the differential diagnosis of nasal tumors with such behavior.

  • Extraoral Osseous Choristoma in the Head and Neck Region: Case Report and
           Literature Review

    • Abstract: An osseous choristoma is a benign tumor consisting of regular bone tissue in an irregular localization. Choristomas in the head and neck region are rare. Most frequently, they are found in the region of the tongue or oral mucosa. There are also very few reports on osseous choristomas in the submandibular region. We present the case of a woman with a large, caudal osseous choristoma within the lateral cervical triangle. Literature review is given about all of the reported cases in the region of the neck. The pathogenesis is yet unexplained. Our case supports the theory that the development of an osseous choristoma is a reaction to a former trauma. Cervical osseous choristomas are seldom, but they represent an important differential diagnosis when dealing with a cervical tumor.

  • Surgical Treatment of a Patient with a Solitary Thyroid Metastasis from
           Primary Sigmoid Adenocarcinoma: A Case Report and Literature Review

    • Abstract: Malignant metastases to the thyroid are rare and even rarer from colorectal cancer (CRC). Most cases of CRC metastasis to the thyroid involve metastases to other organs as well, particularly the liver and/or lung. There are only three reports of CRC metastasizing to the thyroid without involvement of another site. Patients with solitary thyroid metastasis from CRC have a poor prognosis after surgery, whereas resection is beneficial in their counterparts with a solitary liver or lung metastasis. This difference could be the result of delayed diagnosis of thyroid metastasis in patients with CRC, given that postoperative follow-up examination of the thyroid is not routinely performed. Here we describe a patient who was found to have a solitary metastasis of sigmoid cancer to the thyroid on postoperative imaging and has had prolonged disease-free survival after thyroidectomy. Our experience suggests that a low threshold of suspicion is crucial for timely diagnosis of thyroid metastasis from CRC and that resection can improve disease-free survival.

  • Recurrent Otogenic Intracranial Sepsis: A Key Radiological Finding, Not to
           Be Missed

    • Abstract: Introduction. Otogenic intracranial sepsis is a well-known and established complication of otitis media. It is a major cause of morbidity and mortality from otitis media. We present a case of recurrent otogenic intracranial sepsis and key findings on imaging. Case Report. A 64-year-old male presented with two episodes of severe sepsis secondary to right sided otitis media. During the first episode, he suffered an episode of otogenic pneumococcal sepsis requiring intensive care admission. A year later, he suffered another episode of otogenic intracranial sepsis with evidence of encephalitis, which also required intensive care input. He underwent surgical management of his otitis media with a right myringotomy followed by grommet insertion. Findings. Both computerised tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the temporal bones demonstrated a defect in the right tegmen tympani, through which a cyst herniated into the epitympanum. Postinfective changes were also noted in the right inferior temporal lobe. Discussion. Tegmen tympani defects are a rare but important risk factor for the spread of intracranial infections from the middle ear. In cases of recurrent otogenic intracranial sepsis, it is crucial to look for evidence of this finding on imaging.

  • Self-Induced Traumatic Macroglossia: Case Report and Literature Review

    • Abstract: Traumatic macroglossia is an extremely rare condition characterized by a sudden edematous swelling of the tongue due to trauma. We report a rare case of traumatic macroglossia in a 37-year-old male with known trisomy 21 and epilepsy who presented to the emergency room with a huge protruded tongue due to aggressive behavior and a history of multiple tongue tractions, leading to sudden severe tongue swelling without any respiratory distress symptoms. The examination was unremarkable; fixable nasolaryngoscopy relieved bilateral vocal cord movement, and there was no laryngeal edema. The patient was managed immediately by endotracheal intubation to secure the airway, and corticosteroids were used to diminish and stop the tongue swelling. We describe the clinical management for such patients, highlighting the different causes of traumatic macroglossia. A few cases have been reported in the literature, but this is the first case to report self-induced traumatic macroglossia in a seizure-free patient managed successfully by endotracheal intubation, corticosteroids, a bite block, and warm wet dressing.

  • Cardiac Metastasis in a Patient with Head and Neck Cancer: A Case Report
           and Review of the Literature

    • Abstract: Cardiac metastasis from a primary head and neck cancer is a rare finding. Most patients with cardiac metastases have nonspecific symptoms that may vary depending on the severity and location of the lesion. Due to the infrequency of reported cases, there are no clear guidelines for the diagnosis or management of cardiac metastasis in head and neck cancer patients. In this report, we discuss the case of a patient with a primary diagnosis of oral tongue cancer who developed a cardiac metastasis that was detected antemortem.

  • Rare Differential Diagnosis of Dyspnea: Extramedullary Plasmocytoma (EMP)
           of the Larynx—Case Report and Review of the Latest Literature of
           Laryngeal EMP and Laryngeal Involvement of Multiple Myeloma

    • Abstract: Multiple myeloma (MM) of the larynx is extremely rare. It can be either a laryngeal manifestation of a general multiple myeloma or it can occur as a primary laryngeal mass, which is then called extramedullary plasmocytoma (EMP). We present the case of an 81-year-old male patient who was admitted for dyspnea. He had a history of multiple myeloma but was in complete remission since some years. Histological and immunohistological examination of tissue samples revealed an EMP. The patient was first treated by laser surgery in order to reduce the tumor mass and secure the airway. Afterwards, he was systematically treated by radiation therapy with 60 Gy, which achieved a good response and complete remission proven by control laryngoscopy and histological examination of tissue samples taken from the former tumor area three months after laser excision. The latest literature in the field is reviewed. There were only ten cases of EMP in the larynx or laryngeal involvement of MM published within the last five years (Pubmed was searched for “larynx,” “laryngeal” and “EMP,” “Extramedullary Myeloma,” “Multiple Myeloma,” and “MM”). Due to its rarity, there are currently no evidence-based therapeutic guidelines available. For their development, multicenter studies are required.

  • Labyrinthectomy after Cochlear Implantation: A Case of a Novel Approach
           for Vertigo Control

    • Abstract: Vertigo control in cases of Ménière disease and deafness can be achieved by labyrinthectomy before or as a single-stage procedure during cochlear implantation. The aim was to describe a case in which a labyrinthectomy was performed after cochlear implantation. The scar tissue was removed from the electrode cable, and the receiver was removed from the periostal pocket and placed out without electrode dislocation. Labyrinthectomy was performed after securing the electrode at the external canal. The patient disclaimed after three months no disabling vertigo. Intraoperatively, the electrode was not dislocated. A labyrinthectomy can be performed even after cochlear implantation to treat vertigo.
