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...

INTRODUCTION: The medical information provided in medical consultations is exhaustive but poorly assimilated by patients and relatives. Hearing loss seems to be a further obstacle. The main objective of this study was to compare medical information about cochlear implantation delivered in oral and written form ("standard" group) versus oral, written and digital form ("multimedia" group). The secondary objective was to assess hearing loss as a negative factor for understanding medical information, by comparing understanding in patients with unilateral versus bilateral profound hearing loss...

INTRODUCTION: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare congenital disorder involving permanent ubiquitous structural and/or functional ciliary abnormalities. METHODS: A single-center retrospective study included 56 cases of PCD (respiratory form) out of a cohort of 280 patients with suspected PCD. The main features of history-taking and clinical examination were analyzed, to formulate a pragmatic diagnostic procedure, easy to implement in clinical practice. RESULTS: Chronic respiratory tract infectious symptoms are sensitive but non-specific for the diagnosis of PCD...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of our study was to see whether the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are the markers of idiopathic sudden hearing loss to be used in prognosis or not. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study is a retrospective, case-control clinical trial. Forty-five patients diagnosed with idiopathic sudden hearing loss and treated with the same treatment protocol between March 2014 and December 2015 and 47 healthy volunteers coming to the hospital for a routine health check and accepting audiological and laboratory tests were included in our study...

Psychogenic hearing loss, formerly known as functional or non-organic hearing loss, is a classic cause of consultation in infantile audiology. Risk factors include female gender, and age 8 or 12 years. Onset is relatively sudden, without impact on schooling or voice quality. Audiometric signs comprise non-superimposable audiometric thresholds (variable audiometric results), bilaterality, flat mean audiometric curve, and discrepancy between pure-tone and speech audiometry. The child needs reassuring during audiometric examination: attention-diversion techniques may be effective...

OBJECTIVES: Sinonasal mucosal melanoma is a rare disease, representing 4% of nasal cavity and paranasal sinus malignancies. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical characteristics, progression and treatment of this disease and to identify prognostic factors. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective review presents a cohort of 44 patients treated for a melanoma arising from the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, in the ENT Head and Neck Surgery Department of the University Hospital of Nantes (France) between 1988 and 2015...

To analyze the medical literature devoted to work-up, epidemiology, local control, survival, complications and sequelae after conservative treatment for early-stage squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsillar region. An analysis of the PubMed (1975-2016) database was performed using the following keywords and associations: "tonsil/tonsillar region/oropharynx" AND "squamous cell carcinoma" AND "early-stage (I-II; T1-2N0M0)" AND "radiation therapy/radiotherapy" OR "conservative surgery/oropharyngectomy/transoral surgery/radical tonsillectomy"...

INTRODUCTION: Vagal paraganglioma are rare tumors that are mostly asymptomatic. We report a case of vagal paraganglioma associated with paraneoplastic polymyalgia rheumatica and review the literature on benign paragangliomas of the head and neck associated with paraneoplastic syndrome. CASE REPORT: A 53-year-old man presented with atypical polymyalgia rheumatica. MRI revealed a tumor that was then surgically excised. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of benign vagal paraganglioma...

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulas are infrequent and only 10 cases in the literature have been located in the clivus. We describe two new cases of CSF fistulas in this site and review the literature. CASE REPORT: The first patient was a 52-year-old woman referred to our centre for intermittent rhinorrhea that had been diagnosed after an episode of meningitis. The second case was a 69-year-old man who was visited for rhinorrhea of one-year duration; he also developed meningitis during the preoperative study...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the epidemiology, clinical features and treatment of undifferentiated carcinoma of nasopharyngeal type in children. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of 40 patients under the age of 17 years managed for undifferentiated carcinoma of nasopharyngeal type in two oncology centres in the central region of Tunisia between 1995 and 2012. RESULTS: Patients had a median age of 14 years with a sex ratio of 1.3. The mean time to presentation was 5 months...

Only about ten articles devoted to operative reports have been published in the medical literature, but this document is essential, both medically and legally, to ensure optimal management of operated patients. In this technical note, based on published studies on this subject, the authors describe the key features of operating reports after otorhinolaryngology head & neck surgery and emphasize the need to write this document during the minutes after the end of the operation, the importance of standardization and its teaching role during surgical training...

INTRODUCTION: Nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma (NCMH) is an extremely rare benign hamartoma of the sinonasal tract, predominantly involving infants and young children. METHODS: We report the case of a 3-year-old boy of NCMH with extension to anterior skull base. RESULTS: The tumor was completely resected piece by piece via an endonasal endoscopic approach. There is no recurrence 3 years after operation. CONCLUSIONS: We reported the case of NCMH extending to skull base was successfully resected by endonasal endoscopic approach...

C Martin, A Karkas, J-M Prades
The Eustachian (auditory) tube and tympanomastoid cavities form an anatomic and functional whole that cannot easily be divided, and is therefore known as the "tubotympanic system". The system has been the focus of several studies, with complex and sometimes contradictory results, making an overview of its functioning difficult to obtain. The objective of the present article is to review the current state of knowledge, as an indispensable preliminary to understanding tubotympanic system dysfunction, and notably the development of chronic otitis...

OBJECTIVES: There is paucity of data on the efficacy of volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The objective of the present study was to investigate outcomes and patterns of recurrence in locally advanced HNSCC treated by VMAT. METHODS: A retrospective study included all patients with stage III or IV HNSCC undergoing curative VMAT. RESULTS: From 2010 to 2013, 130 patients were treated for locally advanced oropharynx (n=55; 42%), hypopharynx (n=38; 29%), larynx (n=22; 17%) or oral cavity (n=15; 12%) SCC...

INTRODUCTION: Keratoameloblastoma is an extremely rare odontogenic tumor, as only 18 cases have been reported in the literature. CASE REPORT: The authors report a case of keratoameloblastoma in a 32-year-old woman and review the literature concerning the clinical features, radiological appearance, histopathological findings and treatment options. DISCUSSION: Keratoameloblastoma is a rare tumor observed more frequently in males (sex ratio: 3:1) characterized by extensive keratin production in odontogenic islets and fibrous stroma...
