PURPOSE: The current management options of congenital pyriform aperture stenosis (CNPAS) are either conservative measures awaiting further growth of the bony nasal framework or surgical intervention that focuses on bone removal from the margin of the pyriform aperture (PA) without exposure of the nasolacrimal duct (NLD) followed by stenting. Recently, CT measurements of the nasal cavity in CNPAS have shed light that the site of maximal bony obstruction corresponds to the bony buttress encasing the NLD rather than the margin of the PA as initially thought...

Purpose: It is a well-known fact that nature tries to eliminate what is not in use. Because of this, the number of certain teeth which are no longer necessary for function are either getting increasingly impacted or are not developing at all. This is especially the case where third molars are concerned. Furthermore, the presence or absence of the third molar is significant to all branches of dentistry and in particular, forensic dentistry. Objectives: The objectives of this study is to assess (1) The prevalence of third molar agenesis in population of age group 18-25 years...

Despite recent advances in the treatment of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) provided by Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOAC), a substantial proportion of lower limb DVT patients will develop some degree of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) within 2 years. Systemic thrombolysis, although effective in reducing the risk of PTS and leg ulceration, is associated with a high risk of major bleeding, making it unsuitable for the vast majority of patients. A local approach, aimed at delivering the fibrinolytic drug directly into, or near to, the thrombus surface, is attractive because of the possibility of lowering of the administered drug dose, thus reducing the bleeding risks...

INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary intravascular talcosis is a rare condition occurring in intravenous drug users injecting oral medications. Talc results in a foreign-body granulomatous reaction giving a radiological haematogenic miliary appearance mimicking miliary tuberculosis. Drug users represent a population at risk for both these conditions and their distinction may be challenging. CASE REPORT: We reported the case of a man, 33 year-old, intravenous drug addict, detected by the health services because he was the partner of a person who died of contagious and multi-resistant tuberculosis...

AIM: Early clinical and radiological diagnosis of dental caries is one of the fundamental objectives of clinical dentistry because of the high frequency of the disease and severe complications if caries remains untreated, especially among the elderly and patients with immunodeficiency. Dental panoramic tomography (DPT) is a common radiographic method for evaluating dentition when indicated, especially in an adult population. The aim of this study was to assess the reproducibility of diagnosis between specialists in oral radiology and general dentists with regards to caries lesions based on DPTs of adults...

In 2002, due to extensive histomorphologic, immunohistochemical, and cytogenetic similarities, the World Health Organization unified undifferentiated small round blue cell neoplasms of soft tissue and bone (previously segregated as Ewing sarcoma or Primitive Neuroectodermal tumor) into one category: Ewing family of tumors (EFT). Osseous EFT are more common, and while extra-osseous EFT can occur anywhere in the body, those of the pancreas are rare and likely to be seen in the second decade of life in the head of the pancreas...

BACKGROUND: Managing metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (mRCC) has been revolutionized during the first decade of the 21st century due to the development of targeted therapies. The sunitinib is an oral multi-targeted receptor Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI). It became the first targeted therapy as first-line treatment to improve the survival of patients with metastatic kidney cancer. This treatment consists in the oral intake of 50 mg of sunitinib per day in a 6 -week cycle including 4 weeks of treatment intake (the "on" week) followed by a 2-week break (the off week)...

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a lymphatic system tumor originating from either B or T lymphocytes and shows a high malignant potential. In HIV-seropositive patients, NHL of head and neck is mainly found in Waldeyer's ring, oral mucosa, salivary glands, paranasal sinuses, and laryngeal tissue. Primary NHL rarely affects the bone. When the lesion affects the bones of the jaws, it is rare in the mandible when compared to the maxilla. In the reported cases, only 0.6% are found in the mandible. NHL of the mandible can be difficult to diagnose, and so the prime aim of the present case report is to establish appropriate diagnosis of one of such kinds...

Purpose Approximately 1% to 2% of non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) harbor a c-ros oncogene 1 ( ROS1) rearrangement. Crizotinib, an inhibitor of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), ROS1, and MET, has shown marked antitumor activity in a small expansion cohort of patients with ROS1-positive advanced NSCLC from an ongoing phase I study. We assessed the efficacy and safety of crizotinib in the largest cohort of patients with ROS1-positive advanced NSCLC. Patients and Methods This phase II, open-label, single-arm trial enrolled East Asian patients with ROS1-positive (assessed through validated AmoyDx assay [Amoy Diagnostics, Xiamen, China] at three regional laboratories) advanced NSCLC who had received three or fewer lines of prior systemic therapies...

We report a 27-year-old woman, a known case of classical migraine headache, on oral contraceptive pills. She had a severe episode of migraine with visual aura attack, which continued late into the night. The next early morning, her headache persisted and she developed abrupt onset of dysarthria, right hemiparaesthesias. She attributed symptoms to her long-standing headache problem, and hence did not seek medical help for the next two weeks. The symptoms persisted despite her headache subsiding over the next 24 hours...
