Objectives We aimed to evaluate the relationship between nasal eosinophilia and nasal hyperresponsiveness to allergen extract. Study Design Retrospective chart review. Setting Academic tertiary rhinologic practice. Subjects and Methods We performed allergy tests (skin prick test and multiple allergosorbent test) and nasal cytology for 194 patients with rhinitis symptoms (76 males and 118 females; age, 11-69 years). According to the results, they were classified into 4 groups: group A (allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia, n = 26), group B (allergic rhinitis without eosinophilia, n = 77), group C (nonallergic rhinitis with eosinophilia syndrome, n = 20), and group D (nonallergic rhinitis without eosinophilia, n = 71)...

Background Although the cause of adenotonsillar hypertrophy remains unknown, some studies have shown that allergy may be a risk factor. Purpose This study determined the levels of allergen-specific immunoglobulin E (sIgE) in the adenotonsillar tissues of children with adenotonsillar hypertrophy and evaluated the clinical significance of local atopy in adenotonsillar tissues. Methods We measured 21 types of specific immunoglobulin E in the serum and adenotonsillar tissues of 102 children with adenotonsillar hypertrophy and compared the sensitization patterns of the serum and local tissues...

Submucosal diathermy of the inferior turbinate (SMDIT) is a generally safe procedure to control inferior turbinate hypertrophy. We present a case of a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak at the craniocervical junction after SMDIT done in another institution. A 27-year-old man presented 3 weeks after undergoing SMDIT with signs and symptoms of meningitis and postnasal rhinorrhea. Nasal endoscopy and imaging revealed a nasopharyngeal CSF fistula at the craniocervical junction. Transnasal endoscopic repair and reconstruction was performed with no recurrence on repeat imaging and clinical follow up...

Introduction  Allergic rhinitis (AR) affects up to 40% of the population and results in nasal itching, congestion, sneezing, and clear rhinorrhea. Objectives  This study aimed to evaluate the changes in the clinical symptoms and in the level of serum interleukin (IL)-33 before and after pollen immunotherapy (IT) in patients with AR. Methods  The total symptom score and the levels of total immunoglobulin E (IgE) and IL-33 were determined in the serum of 10 non-allergic healthy controls and 45 patients with AR who were equally divided into 3 groups: GI (patients did not receive IT), GII (patients had received IT for 6 months) and GIII (patients had received IT for 2 years)...

Background: Bepotastine besilate ophthalmic solution (BBOS) 1.5% is a topical antihistamine for the treatment of ocular itching associated with allergic conjunctivitis (AC). Allergic rhinitis and AC are common comorbid conditions. We explored the efficacy of BBOS 1.5% in alleviating nasal symptoms in an integrated analysis of two Phase III conjunctival allergen challenge (CAC) studies and a Phase IV environmental allergen study. Methods: In the Phase III trials, a CAC was performed 15 minutes, 8 hours, and 16 hours following ocular instillation of BBOS 1...

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhoea is often seen among head injured patients from road traffic crashes or physical assault, and sometimes it is a complication of nasal surgical procedures. Intracranial tumours may also result in CSF leakage. Blood stained rhinorrhoea often occur at the time of initial insult or injury, while CSF rhinorrhea may be a delayed manifestation. However, idiopathic CSF rhinorrhoea is uncommon, and it is regarded as a diagnosis of exclusion. In this communication, we report a 54-year old woman who developed CSF rhinorrhoea with no prior history of head trauma, physical assault, neurosurgical or nasal surgery...

PURPOSE: Despite a considerable amount of literature that has been published about the use of intrathecal gadolinium-enhanced MR cisternography (IGE-MRC), there is still relatively lack of evidence as to its long-term effects. Our purpose in this study was twofold: firstly, to assess the long-term safety of the IGE-MRC; secondly, to evaluate the diagnostic performance of IGE-MRC for detecting cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak in otorhinorrhea patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed our imaging and clinical database for the patients admitted to our department for the evaluation of their otorhinorrhea between 2008 and 2017...

Background: The olfactory bulb is anatomically exposed and thus can be directly damaged by external stimulation. This can occur as an occupational injury owing to contact with organic solvents or other causes. We present cases of eight patients who sustained occupation-related exposure to potentially toxic substances and later presented with signs and symptoms of anosmia. We examined the occupational and medical characteristics of the patients and evaluated their work-relatedness. Case presentation: Case 1: A 50-year-old man performed high-frequency heat treatments for approximately 11 years...

Irinotecan (Camptosar© , CPT-11), a topoisomerase I inhibitor, is a commonly used cytotoxic chemotherapeutic in the treatment of multiple malignancies, particularly of gastrointestinal origin. Dysarthria secondary to irinotecan has been described as a rare side effect in a few case reports with limited data to recommend appropriate management. We describe herein a large single institution experience of patients with gastrointestinal malignancies who experienced dysarthria while being treated with irinotecan-based chemotherapy regimens (FOLFIRINOX or FOLFIRI+/-bevacizumab)...

Allergic Rhinitis (AR) is an IgE-mediated hypersensitivity disease caused by inhalation of an allergen to which the patients is sensitized. Etiopathogenesis of AR comprises a sensitization phase, an immediate phase and a late phase. In the sensitization phase, inhaled allergens are processed in peptides and come into contact with the nasal mucosa cells. Antigen-Presenting Cells (APCs), especially represented by Dendritic Cells (DCs), capture them through the interaction with their own MHC class II complexes and migrate to lymph nodes...

OBJECTIVE: Nasal and sinonasal inverted papilloma (IP) are rare benign tumors and have the potential to exhibit malignancy in approximately 10% of cases. This study aimed to analyze the clinical features of IP associated with malignancy. Furthermore, we reviewed our therapeutic strategy and the clinical course of malignant IP. METHODS: Overall, 70 patients with IP at our institution were retrospectively analyzed from April 2006 to December 2015; of these, six (9%) had associated malignancy...

BACKGROUND: Resveratrol is a natural, nonflavonoid polyphenol, exerting anti-inflammatory activity. It has been reported that resveratrol, together with carboxymethyl-β-glucan, can reduce nasal symptoms in children with allergic rhinitis (AR). In this study, the effect of resveratrol on nasal symptoms in adults with AR was investigated. METHODS: We conducted a placebo-controlled, double-blinded study. One hundred and fifty-one adults (aged 18-60 years) with severe persistent AR were divided into a placebo-treated group (n = 50), a positive control budesonide-treated group (n = 50), and a resveratrol-treated group (n = 51)...

BACKGROUND: Skull base meningoencephaloceles are a rare condition, frequently secondary to traumatic or iatrogenic causes. Cerebrofacial arteriovenous metameric syndrome (CAMS) is characterized by the presence of retinal, facial and cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) with metameric distribution. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case associating these two conditions. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 45 years old female previously diagnosed with CAMS type 2 presented with a long history of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea...

Benzalkonium chloride (BAC) is a bactericidal preservative excipient commonly found in steroid nasal sprays used to treat allergic rhinitis and nasal polyposis. In rare cases, BAC can be responsible for type I and type IV hypersensitivity reactions that can manifest as rhinorrhea, which a clinician might misinterpret as a lack of response to nasal spray therapy rather than a complication of it. We report 3 cases of type IV hypersensitivity reactions in patients who were being treated with mometasone nasal spray...
