Background: Osteochondroma is a benign tumor that tends to develop in mandibular condyle and coronoid process in the craniofacial region. If tumor mass has grown from condyle into the infratemporal space with zygomatic arch obstructing the access, there are risks associated with surgical exposure and local resection of these masses. Case presentation: This study reports on a case of osteochondroma on mandibular condylar head where we treated with surgical excision via preauricular approach with 3D analysis...

Branchio-oto-renal syndrome (BOR) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder. The features include branchial cysts, hearing loss, ear malformation, preauricular pits, retrognathia, congenital heart disease, and renal abnormalities. However, anesthetic management of these patients has seldom been reported. We report a case in which general anesthesia was performed for dental treatment in a patient with BOR. Airway management, renal function, and hemodynamic changes can be of critical concern during anesthetic management...

The somatotopy of the trigeminocervical complex of the rat was defined as a basis for describing circuitry for reflex behaviors directed through the facial motor nucleus. Thus, transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase conjugates applied to individual nerves/peripheral receptive fields showed that nerves innervating oropharyngeal structures projected most rostrally, followed by nerves innervating snout, periocular, and then periauricular receptive fields most caudally. Nerves innervating mucosae or glabrous receptive fields terminated densely in laminae I, II, and V of the trigeminocervical complex, while those innervating hairy skin terminated in laminae I-V...

A 60-year-old woman presented with a painless swelling in the right preauricular region. Physical examination revealed a soft, nontender, oval-shaped lump in this location. Computed tomography indicated an anterolateral cystic lesion that was attached to the condyle of the mandible and to the accessory parotid gland. Differential diagnoses included ganglion cyst, synovial cyst of the temporomandibular joint, and accessory parotid gland cyst. Surgical removal of the cyst was performed with the patient under general anesthesia...

BACKGROUND: Mechanical properties of tissue-engineered cartilage and a variety of endogenous cartilage were measured. The main goal was to evaluate if the tissue-engineered cartilage have similar mechanical characteristics to be replaced with rib cartilage in microtia reconstruction. Such study lays the foundation for future human clinical trials for microtia reconstruction. METHOD: Atomic force microscopy and compression testing were used to measure the viscoelasticity of tissue-engineered cartilage (stem cell seeded on Poly lactic co-glycolytic acid nanofibers and Pellet) and endogenous cartilage: conchal bowl, microtic ears, preauricular remnants, and rib...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a very common health problem in developing nations such as India. It can present as its primary form or as secondary forms (extrapulmonary TB). Maxillofacial manifestations of TB compose nearly 10% of all extrapulmonary manifestations of the disease. Extrapulmonary TB involving the maxillofacial region is very rare and can present in any tissues in this region. These infections generally involve the head and neck through hematogenous or lymphatic routes. Very few cases of primary TB of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) have been reported in the literature...

The ectopic accessory parotid system (EAPS) connotes an extra parotid tissue with its ductal outlet that is morphologically distinct from the main parotid gland and its drainage system. Clinically presenting as a saliva-draining cheek fistula near the oral commissure, this rare congenital anomaly is almost always associated with ipsilateral preauricular appendages and occasional mandibular hypoplasia, and is considered a variant of the oculo-auriculo-vertebral spectrum. This report discusses the embryology, clinical details, and management aspects in a new patient, highlighting the role of magnetic resonance imaging in, for the first time, tracking the ectopic salivary system, and establishing its independent existence...

Erythromelanosis follicularis faciei et colli (EFFC) is a distinct, rare, and underdiagnosed condition of unknown etiology that is characterized by well-demarcated erythema, hyperpigmentation, and follicular papules. The pigmentation is usually on both maxillary, preauricular regions, and the cheeks. We report a case of a 12-year-old boy with EFFC that was associated with reticulated pigmentation of the extremities.

This second article of a three-part series addresses techniques and recommendations for aesthetic treatment of the midface. Injectable fillers are important for rejuvenation of the midface by replacing lost volume and providing structural support; neuromodulators play a smaller role in this facial region. Fillers are used for volumization and contouring of the midface regions, including the upper cheek and lid-cheek junction and the submalar and preauricular areas. Also, treatment of the frontonasal angle, the dorsum, the nasolabial angle, and the columella may be used to shape and contour the nose...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic approaches for craniosynostosis are a growing field in pediatric neurosurgery. In metopic synostosis, previous reports for complete fronto-orbital remodeling have proposed an intervention with multiple incisions (bregmatic, tarsal, and preauricular) to open frontonasal and frontoethmoidal synostotic sutures, and orbital roof. METHODS: We propose a technique to complete all these osteotomies with a unique incision anterior to the bregmatic fontanel under 3D endoscopic vision, and review possible complications, limits, and pitfalls...

INTRODUCTION: Reconstruction of a nose deformity with a full-thickness defect is not an easy procedure because the nose is highly noticeable, being located at the center of the face, and plays an important role in breathing. Esthetics and functionality are equally important. Local flap reconstruction is an option but it has limitations for reconstruction of large defects because of the following the scar and the deformity at the recipient site. Chondrocutaneous preauricular free flaps can be used to provide grafts with satisfactory esthetics...

Tae Sung Lee, Sanghoon Park
During a conventional reduction malarplasty procedure, a dual approach including intraoral incisions and preauricular incisions is made to reduce both the zygomatic body and arch. As the preauricular approach is performed to cut the zygomatic arch, there are several remarkable advantages that can be achieved by simply beveling the osteotomy anteriorly on the zygomatic arch. This has the benefits of enhancing bone union by the increase in cross-sectional area for bone contact, decreasing palpability on the osteotomy site, placing the osteotomy more posteriorly, preventing depression in the anterior malar region, and reducing the need for metal fixtures...

Granuloma faciale (GF) is a rare, inflammatory, cutaneous disorder of unknown aetiology. It presents clinically as one or several well-circumscribed violaceous papules, plaques, and nodules almost exclusively confined to the facial region. Rarely, extrafacial lesions can occur, most often on sun-exposed sites. We report a case of extrafacial GF in a 63-year-old male with indolent lymphoma, who presented with plaques involving the right preauricular region and left posterior axilla. The clinical and histopathological findings were consistent with GF...

Chronic orofacial pain is a complex multidimensional experience that produces disability and impairment of normal mandibular function. Overall estimations of chronic orofacial pain prevalence are 7 to 11% of the general population. Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are one of the most prevalent chronic orofacial pain conditions, with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthralgia accounting for 30.1% of TMD patients. Interventional procedures are often used in pain and palliative medicine to achieve reasonable and cost-effective pain relief...
