Introduction: Laryngocele is an air-filled dilatation of the laryngeal saccule that extends upward within the false vocal folds. Different etiologies lead to laryngocele congenital malformation, weakness of the laryngeal tissues and increased intralaryngeal pressure. Laryngocele may be a secondary iatrogenic complication following subtotal laryngectomy. Case Report: We report the case of a 61-year-old patient who presented an external laryngomucocele 8 years after a supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy (SCPL-CHEP)...

Introduction: Complications of acute sinusitis affecting multiple sites are very uncommon in the antibiotic era. However, a significant proportion of patients (5-40%) suffering from acute sinusitis can have these complications mostly due to the delayed diagnosis of the disease. Patients can have variable presentations according to the site and extent of the infection. Case Report: A 21-year-old male student presented with subperiosteal abscess and a brain abscess with a history of acute sinusitis...

Introduction: Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is one of the most common cancers in the world. Extra- and intra-cellular high-mobility motor box 1 (HMGB1) proteins are invovled in the pathogenesis and prognosis of cancer. Regarding this, the present study was conducted with the aim of investigating the expression of HMGB1 protein and mRNA levels in the blood, tumor tissue, and marginal normal tissue of patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) using the quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry (IHC)...

Introduction: Bleeding during functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is an important issue for both anesthesiologists and surgeons as it can affect the safety and efficiency of the procedure. We compared the efficacy of tranexamic acid (TXA) and clonidine in reducing blood loss and improving surgical field visualization during FESS. Materials and Methods: In a double-blind, randomized, clinical trial, 52 patients, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status 1-2, aged 13-75 years, suffering from rhinosinusitis with or without polyposis, and who were candidates for FESS, were enrolled...

Introduction: Temporal bone osteomyelitis is more commonly seen in immunocompromised patients and is very rare in non-immunocompromised individuals. Mucormycosis is a fulminating fungal infection caused by Mucor which is a saprophytic fungus commonly seen in diabetic patients. Here we report a case of temporal bone osteomyelitis in a child with a traumatic history which was causing clinical features of lateral sinus thrombosis. The patient was successfully treated and doing well post-operatively...

Introduction: Foreign bodies in the esophagus are considered to be a life-threatening condition in adults and children because of esophageal perforation, chemical pneumonitis, airway obstruction, and development of a fistula, leading to high morbidity and mortality with this condition. Most cases present with immediate symptoms. However, in rare cases, the foreign body can migrate within the tissues and become symptomatic at a later date. Case Report: We report a rare case of a foreign body in the esophagus following fishmeal ingestion...
