Hearing function in older patients may be related to bone structure. We conducted an experiment to evaluate the effect of zoledronic acid on osteoporotic middle ear ossicles in an animal model. Our subjects were 19 female New Zealand white rabbits (38 ears) weighing 2 to 4 kg. We divided the rabbits into three groups: one group consisted of 6 rabbits with osteoporotic ears that were treated with zoledronic acid; the second group was made up of 8 rabbits with osteoporotic ears that were not treated; a control group included 5 rabbits with normal ears that were untreated...

Rhinosporidiosis is a rare, chronic, granulomatous infection of the mucous membranes that mainly involves the nose and nasopharynx; it occasionally involves the pharynx, conjunctiva, larynx, trachea and, rarely, the skin. The characteristic clinical features of this disease include the formation of painless polyps in the nasal mucosa or the nasopharynx that bleed easily on touch. At our center, excision of the lesion with a Le Fort I osteotomy is carried out in patients (1) in whom two or more previous attempts at excision of biopsy-proven rhinosporidiosis arising from the nasal mucosa was carried out or (2) in whom the rhinosporidiosis arises from the nasophayrngeal mucosa and/or extranasal sites...

Lacrimal sac tumors are rare and difficult to diagnose. We present a case of coexisting lacrimal sac adenocarcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma in a 73-year-old woman who presented with swelling of the inner canthus. Biopsy identified the growth as an adenocarcinoma. After dissection of the lacrimal carcinoma via a lateral rhinotomy, histopathologic examination confirmed the adenocarcinoma and identified a coexisting transitional cell carcinoma. A recurrence developed, but only of the adenocarcinoma component...

Leiomyosarcoma is a rare malignant soft-tissue tumor whose cells resemble smooth-muscle tissue. It has been reported to arise in different areas of the head and neck region. Primary leiomyosarcoma of the parapharyngeal space, however, is extremely rare, as only 4 cases have been previously reported to date. We describe the somewhat urgent case of a primary leiomyosarcoma of the right parapharyngeal space in a 30-year-old man. We also review the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges that clinicians face in managing this rare tumor...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) has significant impact on quality of life. It may result from viral infection, but the relationship between hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and SSNHL remains uncertain. To investigate the risk of developing SSNHL in patients with HBV, we conducted a nationwide, population-based, retrospective cohort study from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. A total of 33,234 patients diagnosed with HBV infection and 132,936 control subjects without viral hepatitis were selected from claims made from 2000 to 2008...

We report a case of a middle-aged woman with a diffuse, nonenhancing, progressively atrophic T2-hyperintense lesion involving the left frontotemporal lobes and insula found to be synchronous high-grade sinonasal neuroendocrine carcinoma (SNEC) after initial endonasal resection. In 2014, a 47-year old woman underwent resection of a left-sided high-grade ethmoidal neuroendocrine carcinoma after presentation with weight gain and increased levels of serum and urine cortisol. Concurrent with the initial presentation, she was noted to have a nonenhancing, hyperintense signal change on T2-weighted images on the left frontotemporal lobes and insula thought to be paraneoplastic...

We conducted a prospective study to comparatively evaluate serum levels of malondialdehyde, an oxidative stress indicator, and the antioxidant enzymes glutathione, catalase, and superoxide dismutase in patients with Bell palsy. Our study population was made up of 30 patients with Bell palsy-15 men and 15 women, aged 25 to 68 years (mean: 50.4)-who were seen in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at a tertiary care medical center. For comparison purposes, we recruited 26 healthy age- and sex-matched controls-16 men and 10 women, aged 40 to 67 years (mean: 54...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is a hearing loss of >30 dB in at least three consecutive frequencies that occurs in 3 days. The aim of this study was to investigate anxiety and depression caused by sudden, idiopathic, one-sided hearing loss. The levels of anxiety and depression in patients with this type of hearing loss were determined using the Beck Anxiety Scale (BAS) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) at the time of the patient's first visit. In total, 56 patients (32 men and 24 women) with a mean age of 32...

Invasive fungal rhinosinusitis (IFRS) is a fatal disease of the nose and paranasal sinuses that typically affects immunocompromised patients. Data on this disorder, which is rare and difficult to diagnose, are lacking in the literature. We collected comprehensive data from 9 patients (7 males, 2 females) with a mean age of 34 years (range: 6 to 58) with IFRS who were treated at our center and examined the factors associated with successful treatment. The parameters examined were patient demographics, disease characteristics, clinical course including surgical and medical therapy, treatment, fungal species involved, and long-term survival at follow-up...

Desmoid tumors (DTs) of the head and neck have typically been classified as extra-abdominal, although the anatomic challenges of the head and neck warrant consideration of these DTs as a special entity. We present a review of DTs and describe our series of five patients with DTs of the head and neck treated within 2 decades. Altogether, 53 patients with DTs treated surgically at a tertiary care center over a 20-year period were retrospectively reviewed. Outcomes of the treatment of DTs of the head and neck (n = 5) were analyzed as a case series...

Mucosal preservation is paramount to achieving successful outcomes after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). Despite best surgical practices and implementation of evidenced-based postoperative care, patients in rare cases might exhibit persistent demucosalization that is recalcitrant to conservative therapies. We retrospectively reviewed the records of 3 patients-a 63-year-old woman, a 67-year-old woman, and a 43-year-old man-who experienced clinically significant local demucosalization after uncomplicated ESS despite routine surgical and postoperative management...

We retrospectively reviewed 32 ears from 30 adult patients with chronic otitis media who underwent revision tympanoplasty using cartilage graft (performed by a single surgeon) from January 10, 2011, to May 10, 2016. All procedures were performed using an endaural incision for both temporalis fascia graft and tragal cartilage graft harvesting. The overall surgical success rate was 93.3%. The average preoperative hearing level was 43.1 ± 17.3 dBHL, and the average postoperative hearing level was 39.2 ± 18.2 dBHL, representing a significant improvement...
