Cephalic tetanus is defined as a combination of trismus and paralysis of one or more cranial nerves. Since it is a rare cause of facial nerve palsy, it is often overlooked as a differential diagnosis. We present the case of a 75-year-old man admitted to our emergency department with left facial nerve palsy, left ptosis and dysphagia 2 weeks after a head laceration. Soon after admission, he was orally intubated because of massive aspiration. A delayed diagnosis of cephalic tetanus was reached only when he was extubated and trismus and risus sardonicus were identified in addition to facial nerve palsy...

We present the case of a 7-year-old boy with a forehead laceration that required suture repair. The child was anxious and uncooperative, and the initial plan was to administer intranasal midazolam to facilitate the repair. However, a facemask blinder was first implemented as a visual barrier to block the child's view of any anxiety-provoking stimuli and appeared to improve the child's cooperation with the procedure. Intranasal midazolam was not administered, and the laceration was cleaned and repaired successfully...

A previously healthy 65-year-old female passenger presented on the 3rd day of her voyage with a small facial laceration after she fell and hit her forehead, following sudden blurred vision and dizziness. When the ship's doctor noticed that one pupil was much bigger than the other, he feared intracranial bleeding and considered helicopter evacuation. Her symptoms had started shortly after she had removed a transdermal scopolamine patch from behind her ear. Getting scopolamine from her hands in direct contact with the eye surface caused mydriasis...

Facial traumas are common in children but often unconsidered. Facial injury is responsible of impressive bleeding because of the rich vascularization of the face; this bleeding is often underestimated because of the immediate arterial vasoconstriction that is very strong for children. The blood volume is 80ml/kg for a newborn, with a total of 250ml, reaching 70ml/kg at one year of age. The evaluation must be rigorously performed due to the risk of a sudden decompensation. Regarding the wounds, the primary repair must be performed directly neat or optimal in case of damaged tissues...

BACKGROUND: Cesarean delivery in the second stage of labor is common, whereas the frequency of operative vaginal delivery has been declining. However, data comparing outcomes for attempted operative vaginal delivery vs cesarean in the second stage are scant. Previous studies that examine operative vaginal delivery have compared it to a baseline risk of complications from a spontaneous vaginal delivery and cesarean delivery. However, when a woman has a need for intervention in the second stage, spontaneous vaginal delivery is not an option she or the provider can choose...
