Odontogenic maxillary sinusitis has now increasing incidence in dental and otorhynolaryngological practice. Its incidence varies from 10-12 % to 50-75 %, according to different authors. Literature study showed that odontogenic maxillary sinusites are mostly unilateral, and significantly differ in complaints, clinical signs, and diagnostic and treatment measures from other types of sinusitis. This should be taken into account, because often odontogenic maxillary sinusitis is misdiagnosed with common sinusitis, and only in 77 % such patients are examined by both dental specialist and otorhynolaryngologist...

Les sinusites nosocomiales ne sont pas rares en réanimation. Elles surviennent en général dans les suites d'une intubation nasotrachéale voire même orotrachéale. Le tubage gastrique peut être à lui seul à l'origine d'une sinusite nosocomiale. Nous rapportons le cas d'une patiente hospitalisée qui a été victime de brûlures étendues chez qui la sonde nasogastrique a été à l'origine d'une pansinusite dont l'issue a été fatale.

The objective of the study was to analyse the role of computed tomography in the evaluation of outcomes of endoscopic operations in patients with different forms of chronic sinusitis. A total of 47 patients were examined using this technique including 26 after endoscopic treatment for polypous sinusitis and 21 after the treatment of chronic purulent sinusitis. The follow up period ranged from 2 to 11 years. It is concluded that computed tomography provides reliable spatial information about the inflammatory processes in paranasal sinuses necessary for comprehensive assessment of the outcome of endoscopic surgery for chronic sinusites...

UNLABELLED: Wegener's granulomatosis there is a small--and middle--vessels vasculitis. The pathomorphological diagnostic criteria is known as Wegener's triad: 1) necrotizing granlomatous inflammation of upper and/or lower respiratory tract, 2) systemic or focal necrotizing vasculitis involving arteries and vein, and 3) focal segmental necrotizing crescentic gromerulonephritis. According to the current theory of pathogenesis of Wegener's granulomatosis, Staphylococcus aureus is involved...

Sinus infections, often viral, are a common reason for physician visits. The multiplicity of clinical presentations makes its diagnosis difficult. The problem is to recognize bacterial infection without additional testing, except in cases of treatment failures, complications or relapse. Patients with signs suggestive of rhinosinusitis fall into one of four basic clinical situations: common colds, 'doubtful' rhinosinusitis, apparent acute maxillary bacterial rhinosinusitis, and complications. Anterior rhinoscopy may help confirm diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: We conducted a nationwide study in Denmark to identify clinical features and prognostic factors in patients with Streptococcus pneumoniae according to the focus of infection. METHODS: Based on a nationwide registration, clinical information's was prospectively collected from all reported cases of pneumococcal meningitis during a 2-year period (1999-2000). Clinical and laboratory findings at admission, clinical course and outcome of the disease including follow-up audiological examinations were collected retrospectively...

The sinusites orbital complications usually associated to ethmoidites are rare in the childhood. We present a revision of 14 adults patients (10 males and 4 females) 18 to 61 years old. Seven presented a preseptal cellulitis, two had a subperiostial abscess and five an orbitary cellulitis in accordance with the Candler classification. We analyse the personal previous history, the clinical data, complementary tests and treatments (medical and surgical) evolution and hospital stay. We realise a literature revision about this subject...

The aim of the work was the examinations of antioxidant enzymatic activity in blood of patients with chronic hypertrophic of maxillary sinusitis (15 patients) and laryngitis (10 patients), and carcinoma of larynx (7 patients) in comparison with healthy persons (15). The enzymatic activity of superoxide dismutase in blood (method of Misra and Fridovich), katalase (method of Beers and Sizer) and malonyl dialdehyde (method of Placer) were evaluated. The obtained results pointed at significant reduction of antioxidant enzymatic activity against the oxygen species generation in blood of patients with chronic hypertrophic of maxillary sinusits and laryngitis and mainly with the carcinoma of larynx (in comparison with healthy persons)...

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery has become an increasingly popular treatment for chronic sinusitis. This approach is aimed at re-establishment of ventilation and mucociliary clearance of the sinuses. However, some otolaryngologists believe that the Caldwell-Luc procedure should be routinely used for unilateral chronic sinusitis, because it is often associated with the maxillary sinus carcinomas. To evaluate the state of endoscopic sinus surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of unilateral chronic sinusitis, we analyzed the cases of 39 patients with unilateral chronic sinusitis who underwent endoscopic sinus procedures...

BACKGROUND: The Churg-Strauss syndrome, also known as allergic granulomatosis with angiitis, is a rare necrotizing vasculitis with unknown pathogenesis. The necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis involves small and medium-sized arteries, capillaries and veins, leading to the characteristic changes of intra- and extravascular, eosiniphilic granulomas, accompanied by clinically symptoms: bronchial asthma, hypereosinophilia and fever. Ocular manifestations are rarely reported. CASE REPORT: A 53-year-old woman suffered from bronchial asthma, relapsing lung infiltrates and sinusites since 1994...

We report the case of an immunocompetent patient who has been the subject of 39 episodes of recurrent pneumococcal meningitis over a 20 year period. The recurrences of bacterial meningitis due to cerebrospinal fluid leakage and the presence of chronic sinusitis were not influenced by the surgical repair of a fistula and the repeated surgical draining interventions on suppurating chronic sinusital foci. Phenoxymethylpenicillin treatment reduced the number of recurrences and the combination of pneumococcal vaccine and penicillin prophylaxis allowed a 5 year period free of any recurrences...

The authors report on 16 new cases of non-invasive nasosinusal aspergillar sinusitis over a period of 4 years. They stress the importance of the local inducive factors in such apparently healthy patients. The value of treatment by endonasal microsurgery is underlined, enabling the positive diagnosis and cure of these chronic sinusites that do not respond to medical treatment.

Aspergillosis of the paranasal sinuses becomes more and more important. 5 special cases and their histological findings are described. All of them showed unilateral chronic sinusites of long duration. Surgically there were found crumbly cheese-like substances in the sinuses, which corresponded to old fungal masses. The diagnosis was only possible by histological examination, usual staining methods were sufficient. Contrary to the opinion that consumptive basic illness or defects of the immunity system - also caused by therapy - would be a disposing factor for the fungal infection it has now been demonstrated that such cases are to be expected also spontaneous...

Forty cases of brain abscesses in patients under 15 years of age observed between 1960 and 1982 are reported in this study. There has been a progressive decrease in the number of admissions due to that disease. The typical clinical picture was subacute and characterized by intracranial hypertension, fever, alterations in the level of consciousness, seizures and signs of localization in a decreasing order of frequency. Otites and sinusites predominated as primary foci and the most common localizations were frontal and parietal...

The article presents data on 22 inpatients with brain abscesses of rhinosinusogenic etiology who were treated at the Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery. It was found important that X-ray examination of the paranasal sinuses be carried out in all patients of this group even if they present with no rhioscopic changes, which is explained by an elevated number of torpid and latent sinusites. To detect rhinosinusogenic brain abscesses at an early stage, examination including a series of such objective methods as EEG, Echo-EG, cerebral angiography, gamma-topography of the brain and computer-aided tomography was carried out...
