We report a case of spontaneous pneumomediastinum with unusual clinical presentation. The most common symptoms of spontaneous mediastinum are chest pain and shortness of breath. Our patient presented with neck swelling and change in voice, an unusual presentation for spontaneous pneumothorax. A 30-year-old previously healthy man presented with complaints of neck swelling and hoarseness of voice beginning after an intense coughing spell. He had no other complaints. He denied any trauma to the chest, nausea, vomiting, recent air travel, scuba diving or recreational drug use...

Epstein-Barr (EBV) infection and presence of a nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) case in the family increases the risk of developing NPC. Aberrant anti-EBV immunoglobulin A (IgA) antibodies (EBV-IgA) may be present in the sera of non-cancer individuals and predict NPC. Limited studies report the presence of EBV-IgA antibodies within non-cancer individuals in Indonesia where the disease is prevalent. This study aimed at exploring whether EBV-IgA was found more frequently among first degree relatives of NPC patients and individuals presenting with chronic symptoms in the head and neck area compared to healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Patients with cervical disc disease may present with radiculopathy (root compression), myelopathy (cord compression), or myeloradiculopathy. These complaints must be correlated with x-ray, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and computed tomographic (CT) scans. Although most patients can be managed nonsurgically, those with significant neurological deficits and larger disc herniations may require surgery. METHODS: The symptoms of cervical radiculopathy include pain radiating down one or both arms, while myelopathy may result in more diffuse numbness tingling or weakness in the upper and/or lower extremities...

METHODS: Participants were assessed using the Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status (TICS) and the MD Anderson Symptom Inventory-Head and Neck module (MDASI-HN), with subsequent analysis. RESULTS: Of the 122 participants analyzed, the majority (63%) had no frank detectable cognitive impairment by TICS, with frank impairment in 6%...

PURPOSE: The widely used external approach (Weber-Fergusson incision) for the removal of maxillary ethmoid tumors leaves stigmatizing scars and deformities on the patient's face. As an alternative technique, the scarless facial degloving approach was first described in the 1970s; since then, several modifications have been developed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The authors have been using a modified facial degloving technique for 7 years to remove maxillary ethmoid tumors...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the presentation and management of surgical emphysema involving the temporomandibular joint and deep neck following exostoses removal. PATIENT: A 60-year-old male surfer presented with hearing loss and recurrent infections in the right ear. An examination revealed obstructing bony exostoses in the right external auditory canal.

Strangulation of the gallbladder associated with the omentum is extremely rare and, to our knowledge, only two cases have been previously reported. The patient was a 91-year-old female who presented to our emergency room with a chief complaint of upper abdominal pain. Computed tomography imaging revealed a gourd-shaped gallbladder with biphasic appearance divided clearly at the body. In the fundus side, the wall of the gallbladder was oedematous and thickened, while the neck side was intact. On the second day after onset, a laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: We compared the clinical characteristics between acute low- and high-frequency hearing loss (LF and HF, respectively) patients, and the efficacy of three different treatment protocols (systemic steroids, intratympanic steroid injection, and combination therapy). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, randomized controlled study. METHODS: A total of 111 patients diagnosed with LF or HF were treated on an outpatient basis. Each group was randomly divided into three equal subgroups based on therapy: oral steroid, intratympanic dexamethasone injection (IT), and combination therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Vertigo is one of the most common complaints among patients consulting neurologists and general practitioners - family medicine. A special form of dizziness is cervical vertigo. However, the presence of chronic vertigo and imbalance in this group of patients makes it possible to include the treatment of vestibular rehabilitation in the program. AIM: Evalution of the effectiveness of multimodal approach to the management of cervical vertigo. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 109 patients aged from 18 to 45 with vertigo together with myofascial pain syndrome of neck and shoulder area were examined...

AIMS: Little is known about social disparities in health in late adolescence. Among boys and girls aged 17-19, we aimed to (1) describe frequency of health complaints, (2) investigate the factor structure of health complaints and (3) examine the association between health complaints and socio-economic status (SES). METHODS: Data from the large population-based youth@hordaland survey ( n=10,253) were used. Health complaints were assessed by five items from the Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children Symptoms Checklist, SES by parental education and perceived family economy...

Childhood polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare systemic vasculitis and the delayed diagnosis and treatment will cause high incidence of sequelae and high mortality. This article reports a girl with childhood PAN due to posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). The girl aged ten years was admitted to the hospital due to hypertension and convulsions for one month. She had complaints of headache, vomiting, and blurred vision before convulsions. At six months before admission, a mass was observed in the neck...

BACKGROUND: Although 20-40% of primary care complaints are Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (OtoHNS) related, little emphasis is placed on OtoHNS instruction at the undergraduate medical education level. An OtoHNS clerkship rotation is not required at most Canadian medical schools. Furthermore, at institutions offering an OtoHNS rotation, less than 20% of students are able to complete a placement. Given that a large percentage of medical students in Canada will pursue primary care as a career, there remains a gap in providing OtoHNS clinical training...

INTRODUCTION: Rupture of superior mesenteric artery aneurysm (SMAA) is a very rare and life-threatening condition, presenting with acute intraabdominal hemorrhage. CASE: The patient was hospitalized upon complaint of nonspecific severe abdominal pain. Diagnosis of SMAA was established by abdominal Doppler ultrasound that showed a pseudo-aneurysmal lesion with size of 76 × 47 mm at the superior mesenteric main branch. Endovascular stenting was not performed because of the wide neck in the segment of the jejunal branches from SMA and the risk of branch loss during treatment...

Bladder leiomyoma constitutes less than 0.5% of all bladder tumors. Until now, there have been about 250 case reports of bladder leiomyoma. We present a case of large bladder leiomyoma, that was treated successfully with transurethral resection. The patient presented to our clinic with both obstructive and irritative urinary complaints. Cystoscopy showed a mass lesion completely obstructing the bladder neck at the junction of right lateral wall and floor, which did not extend to ureteral orifices. A transurethral resection was performed at the same sessionof cystoscopy...

BACKGROUND: Non-specific neck pain represents a quarter of all chiropractic patient visits in Denmark. Evidence informed practice can help ensure providers use best available treatment, speed up patient recovery rate and reduce healthcare utilization. It is generally believed that Danish chiropractors treat according to best practice, but we do not know if this is true for management of neck-pain. The objective of this study was to investigate how Danish chiropractors treat patients with acute and chronic non-specific neck pain and determine if management is compliant with recent Canadian guideline recommendations...
