AIMS: Allergic rhinitis (AR) is an extremely common disease. This study aimed to determine the prevalence and severity of AR symptoms and potential associated factors, in Parakou, a city in Benin. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted between April and July 2016, involving inhabitants of the city aged between 6 and 65 years. Cluster sampling was carried out. AR symptoms were defined as the simultaneous presence of rhinorrhea, nasal obstruction and sneezing without evidence of respiratory infection...

OBJECTIVE: The main objective was to assess the efficacy of intratympanic dexamethasone injection in controlling vertigo in unilateral Ménière's disease refractory to medical treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study included 25 patients with disabling unilateral Ménière's disease, defined according to the American Academy of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) criteria. Patients received intratympanic dexamethasone during the monitoring period...

INTRODUCTION: Liposarcoma of the hypopharynx is extremely rare, as only 28 cases have been reported in the literature. The cardinal symptom of liposarcoma is progressively worsening dysphagia. CASE REPORT: The authors report the case of a 71-year-old man who presented with dysphagia, marked weight loss over several weeks and an episode of exteriorization of a solid mass from the mouth during an episode of vomiting. Imaging revealed a fat density intra-oesophageal mass...

Vocal fold microstructure is complex and can be affected by laryngeal microsurgery, inducing scarring that prevents mechanical uncoupling of epithelium and muscle, leading to vibration disorder and disabling dysphonia. Treatment options presently are few, and often without efficacy for vibration, having only an impact on volume to reduce glottal closure defect. The present review of the literature had two aims: (i) to report the current state of the literature on cell therapy in vocal fold scarring; and (ii) to analyze the therapeutic interest of the adipose-derived stromal vascular fraction in the existing therapeutic armamentarium...

Allergic rhinitis is a common condition, with significant impact on quality of life depending on severity and quality of control. Allergen-specific immunotherapy (allergen-SIT) is the only known treatment able to alter the natural course of allergic rhinitis. Although well known to allergologists, it has yet to be fully adopted by the ENT community. This review, based on the most recent meta-analyses and clinical studies, shows that SIT significantly reduces symptoms and medication requirements (nasal corticosteroids, H1-antihistamines) in allergic rhinitis...

OBJECTIVES: Quantitative evaluation of upper airway obstruction cannot be commonly performed under acute dyspnea, especially in head and neck cancer (HNC); the decision whether or not to perform airway control surgery may be difficult to reach. Peak inspiratory flow (PIF) has been previously demonstrated to be a useful tool to decide on decannulation after HNC surgery. The aim of the present study was to assess the role of PIF as a standardized non-invasive tool in quantifying severe inspiratory dyspnea requiring emergency tracheostomy...

Juvenile recurrent parotitis (JRP) is a rare disease of childhood occurring between the ages of 3 and 5 years, characterized by recurrent non-suppurative parotitis, spontaneously evolving towards parotid gland dysfunction. Clinically, JRP presents in the form of unilateral or bilateral, usually asynchronous, swelling of the parotid gland. The diagnosis is based on ultrasound characteristics. Widespread use of sialendoscopy has opened up new prospects for the management of this disease. This review of the literature evaluates the role of sialendoscopy in the management of JRP...

Based on a review of the indexed scientific medical literature, the authors document the key technical points, the errors to avoid, the limitations, indications and main oncologic and functional results when performing transoral lateral oropharyngectomy in cancer originating from the tonsillar region.

Cervico-mediastinal goiter is a particular entity from the point of view of thyroid surgery. Its volume, hardness and intrathoracic extension require the surgeon to adapt technique and perform a painstaking preoperative work-up, so as to draw up fully-fledged plan. CT is now indispensable, to anticipate risks and determine whether sternotomy is needed. Surgery seems to induce more postoperative complications than in conventional surgery, although they can be reduced by retrograde dissection of the inferior laryngeal nerve and downward dissection of the posterior side of the lobe to optimize control of adjacent structures...

INTRODUCTION: Kindler syndrome is a very rare, autosomal recessive genodermatosis characterized by skin fragility and photosensitivity in infancy with progressive poikiloderma. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a young woman with a history of Kindler syndrome predominantly characterized by extensive involvement of the oropharyngeal mucosa. The patient presented with an ulcerative lesion of the palate. Computed tomography and biopsy concluded on unresectable invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the hard palate...

OBJECTIVE: Olfactory dysfunction is one of the comorbidities associated with allergic rhinitis (AR) and AR is one of the common causes of olfactory problems. We aimed to evaluate by the Sniffin' Sticks test the effects on olfactory functions of nasal steroids and leukotriene antagonists used for allergic rhinitis. METHODS: Thirty patients with seasonal rhinitis were included in this study. Patients were randomly divided into three groups of 10 patients; group 1 received montelukast sodium and mometasone furoate (MF) therapy, group 2 received only montelukast, and group 3 only MF...

The author reviews day-case otological surgery, which has become increasingly popular in France and all over the world over recent years. Ear surgery is particularly suitable for short-stay admission because of the rapidity of these procedures and possibilities of pain control. This article discusses the advantages of this mode of management (for the patient, the surgeon and the healthcare institution), organizational and safety constraints, and ineligibility criteria. Day-case otological surgery should now become the rule rather than an opportunity...

OBJECTIVE: To review the optimal techniques for localization and characterization of neck paragangliomas (PGL). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Systematic review of the literature from the PubMed/Medline database. RESULTS: Neck PGL are hypervascular tumours essentially arising from paraganglionic tissue situated at the carotid bifurcation (carotid body) and along the vagus nerve. Morphological and functional imaging are indicated to confirm the diagnosis, identify multifocal disease and for local and regional staging...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the role of day-care management of upper aerodigestive tract (UADT) panendoscopy and to study criteria for conventional hospital admission and reasons for conversion. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective study, from January 2011 to May 2013. Inclusion criteria UADT panendoscopy for carcinoma assessment. Study variables, age, gender, tumor location, reason for panendoscopy, TNM stage, previous external radiotherapy, home-to-hospital distance and Apfel, Detsky and ASA scores...
