OBJECTIVE: Adenocarcinoma of the middle ear is a rare entity that must be distinguished from other adenomatous tumors of the temporal bone. We present the first patient of an intestinal-type adenocarcinoma originating from the middle ear. PATIENTS: A 58-year-old woman presented with an 8-year history of left otorrhea. Her middle ear effusions were quite thick and gummy. She underwent eight sets of pressure-equalization tubes within 3 years. In 2011, her physical examination identified a middle ear mass, and she underwent mastoidectomy...

OBJECTIVES: Preoperative fine needle aspiration (FNA) of parotid lesions often is used in the initial evaluation of parotid masses, but its role in guiding surgical decision making remains unclear, in part due to varying diagnostic accuracy reported. We sought to evaluate the role of preoperative FNA in detection of malignancy and impact on surgical management. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. METHODS: The medical records of patients who underwent parotidectomy at a single tertiary medical center were reviewed from 2000 to 2015...

A 15-year-old boy was diagnosed with a cystic parotid mass, which was initially thought to be a first branchial cleft cyst. The mass was treated with antibiotics and fully resolved on examination and imaging. The mass returned, and a superficial parotidectomy was performed to remove the suspected branchial cleft cyst. Final pathology demonstrated a B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Bilateral bone marrow biopsies and peripheral blood counts were negative for any malignancy. This case demonstrates a rare presentation of primary parotid B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma that began as a fluctuating cystic parotid mass consistent in appearance with a first branchial cleft cyst...

A 41-year-old patient was hospitalised for a chronic right parotid mass. A cervical ultrasound revealed a cystic mass of the parotid. Cervical MRI found a ductal ectasia of the parotid and submandibular glands associated with a retention cyst of the right parotid. He had a right total parotidectomy. Histopathological examination of the lesion revealed a multilocular cystic mass with a diffuse glandular ectasia of salivary ducts. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course without any recurrence of symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Parotid gland surgery (PGS) has to manage the balancing act between sufficient radicality and preservation of functional structures. While many studies evaluate post-therapeutic complication due to different extent of surgery, the current study introduces bipolar dissection (BP) being a fast and safe preparation technique. METHODS: Analysis of clinical parameters (age, sex, tumour entity, treatment modalities, facial nerve palsy, bleeding, saliva fistula and Frey's syndrome) of 319 consecutively included patients who underwent extracapsular dissection and superficial/total/radical parotidectomy...

BACKGROUND: Complete tumor removal and preservation of the facial nerve are essential in parotid gland surgery. A technical adjunct that potentially enhances the contrast between the facial nerve and the adherent tumor tissue and allows to identify residual tumor tissue could be Fluorescein Sodium. METHODS: Retrospective chart analysis on 7 patients with benign parotid gland lesions that were operated using Fluorescein Sodium intravenously and the application of the YELLOW 560 nm filter of the operating microscope...

PURPOSE: The most common surgical method to remove benign parotid tumors remains the prograde approach. We examined if a retrograde surgical technique offers better outcomes than historical prograde controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review at Stanford Hospital was conducted to identify retrograde parotidectomies between February 2012 and October 2014 that were staffed by the senior author (DS) with resident involvement. Facial nerve (FN) outcomes and other post-surgical parameters were recorded...

Different surgical options are currently available for treating benign tumors of the parotid gland, and the discussion on optimal treatment continues despite several meta-analyses. These options include more limited resections (extracapsular dissection, partial lateral parotidectomy) versus more extensive and traditional options (lateral parotid lobectomy, total parotidectomy). Different schools favor one option or another based on their experience, skills and tradition. This review provides a critical analysis of the literature regarding these options...

The ganglioneuroblastoma is a rare form of pediatric tumor, involving innerved tissues of the nervous sympathetic system, whose evolution is very hard to foresee. A 38 year-old patient whose histologic exam unexpectedly showed ganglioneuroblastoma, underwent a parotidectomy. Three years after surgery the patient is in optimal clinical conditions, without any radiological signs or clinical relapses. KEY WORDS: Ganglioneuroblastoma, Parotid gland, Parodidectomy.

Pleomorphic adenoma is a slow-growing salivary gland tumor frequently arising from the parotid gland. In this study, we investigated the role of the insulin-like growth factor I-II receptor (IGFI-IIR) levels on the development of parotid gland pleomorphic adenomas. The study included 20 males and 20 females who had superficial parotidectomy with a histopathological diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma in Fırat University Otorhinolaryngology Clinic between 2000 and 2011. The ages of the patients ranged between 20 and 50 years...

The objective of this manuscript is to review a single institution's experience with superficial or total parotidectomy in outpatient and observation/inpatient groups. All patients who underwent superficial or total parotidectomy between 2009 and 2015 were identified. Patients were excluded if they had undergone concurrent surgery such as neck dissection, had prior radiation treatment or surgery at the operative site. Main outcomes were perioperative complications in both groups. 215 consecutive patients were included in the study, 116 (54%) patients in the inpatient group and 99 (46%) in the outpatient group...

The aim of the study is to define the utility of ultrasound (US) in differentiating benign from malignant parotid tumors as well as pleomorphic adenomas (PA) from monomorphic adenoma (MA). Seventy-two consecutive parotid gland tumors were analysed with high-resolution ultrasonography (12 MHz) with color Doppler imagining. The histopathological diagnosis was confirmed after parotidectomy for each lesion. The sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) for the US were established...
