Renal cell carcinoma is one of the most common tumours to spread by extranodal metastases to the head and neck. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the head and neck area has been demonstrated mostly in the paranasal sinuses, parotid gland, the mandible, larynx and hypopharinx. Renal cell carcinoma should be excluded whenever a metastatic lesion is encountered in the head and neck area, even if the metastatic lesion is the first clinical presentation. The diagnosis of metastatic RCC should be suspected in any patient with even a remote history of renal cell carcinoma...

To assess if the difference in species-specific immune response to RV-C correlates with a higher frequency of reinfection, shorter time to reinfection, or different symptom severity than infections with RV-A or RV-B. Forty-three patients were enrolled of which 34 were successfully tracked longitudinally over 3 months, with nasal swabs and symptom questionnaires provided every 2 weeks to identify rhinovirus (RV) strains and the concurrent symptomatology. No difference was found in the time to reinfection with an RV species between RV-C and RV-A or RV-B (p = 0...

BACKGROUND: D-Decarboxylase inhibitors, such as carbidopa or benserazide, have been used as adjunct therapy in Parkinson disease shortly after levodopa synthesis in the 1960s. These compounds increase intracerebral drug concentration and decrease adverse effects by blocking peripheral conversion to dopamine. Skin rash as part of an allergic reaction was previously described in subjects who were using levodopa in combination with carbidopa or benserazide; however, etiology was never clear...

OBJECTIVE: Although local specific immunoglobulin (sIgE) has been employed as a diagnostic criterion for allergic rhinitis (AR), the use of local sIgE has not been fully evaluated in the diagnosis of allergic rhinitis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of nasal secretion sIgE in the diagnosis of allergic rhinitis. METHODS: A total of 51 patients (27 males and 24 females, mean age = 33.3 years) with rhinitis symptoms were enrolled consecutively from the allergy-rhinology clinic of Beijing TongRen Hospital (Beijing, People's Republic of China)...

BACKGROUND: Emedastine patch was developed in Japan as the first transdermal drug delivery system of emedastine difumarate for allergic rhinitis. METHODS: A multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group comparison was conducted in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis. Patients were administered emedastine patches (4 or 8 mg), placebo, or levocetirizine hydrochloride (5 mg tablet) once daily for 2 weeks (double-dummy technique). The primary objective was superiority to placebo by the change of the total nasal symptom score (sneezing, rhinorrhea, and nasal congestion) in Week 2...

Mesenteric lymphatic malformations are rare benign tumors that are most commonly found in children. The presentation of these tumors can be variable. It has been suggested that mesenteric lymphatic malformations are congenital; however, there is evidence that their size may be increased by infection. A 3-year 10-month-old boy presented with rhinorrhea and cough followed by acute abdominal pain. Ultrasonography revealed a lobulated mass in the lower abdomen. Computerized tomography scan of the abdomen diagnosed an inflamed appendix with perforation...

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leakage is usually caused by developmental abnormalities and is rare, accounting for approximately 5% of the cases of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage. To the best of our knowledge, clival dysplasia-caused CSF rhinorrhea has never been reported in the neurosurgical field. CONCLUSION: Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea is often treated by surgery, and a transsphenoidal approach repair is the main surgical method used, offering the advantages of less trauma, fewer complications, rapid postoperative recovery, and low recurrence rate...

INTRODUCTION: Prolactinomas may rarely present with meningitis and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea secondary to erosion of the wall of the sella turcica. It is even more un-common for this abnormal communication to be caused by an ectopic prolactinoma arising from the sphenoid sinus and eroding into the sella. This atypical growth pattern makes diagnosis very difficult, as there may be no displacement of the normal pituitary gland. The authors present the first reported case of a patient with an ectopic prolactinoma presenting primarily with meningitis, and discuss the management strategy as well as surgical and non-surgical treatment options for these patients...

Conventional clinical treatments for allergy management remain suboptimal; new, orally available medications that improve a wide range of allergic signs have been desired. We previously demonstrated that JTE-852, a novel spleen tyrosine kinase inhibitor, potently and simultaneously suppresses secretion of granule contents, arachidonate metabolites, and cytokines from mast cells stimulated by immunoglobulin E-crosslinking. In the present study, we investigated the effects of JTE-852 in four rat models (sneezing, rhinorrhea, airway constriction, and airway inflammation) as representatives of allergy models...

BACKGROUND: It is difficult to identify the onset of allergic rhinitis in infants because making a conclusive diagnosis can be challenging. OBJECTIVE: We used a combination of cell differentials in nasal swabs and immunoglobulin E (sIgE) antibody values to food and inhalant allergens to make the diagnosis and identify relevant allergens for investigation of the onset of allergic rhinitis. METHODS: We studied 302 children, 2 to 120 months old, who visited our clinic for rhinorrhea...

"Sinus headache" is a common chief complaint that often leads patients to an otolaryngologist's office. Because facial pain may or may not be sinogenic in origin, the otolaryngologist should be equipped to evaluate and treat or to appropriately refer these patients. Analysis of current data indicates that the majority of patients who present with sinus headaches actually have migraines. Furthermore, the downstream effect of the cytokine cascade initiated in migraine physiology can cause rhinologic symptoms, including rhinorrhea, congestion, and lacrimation, which may also confound diagnosis...
