BACKGROUND: Sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease is a chronic, well-recognized entity, characterized by the recurrent formation of an abscess or draining sinus over the sacrococcygeal area. It is one of the most common surgical problems. Rarely, chronic inflammation and recurrent disease leads to malignant transformation, most commonly to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). CASE PRESENTATION: We describe an extremely unusual case of SCC developing in a 60-year-old patient with a chronic pilonidal sinus complicated by an anal fistula...

BACKGROUND Umbilical pilonidal sinus (UPS) is a rare disease of young, hirsute, dark men with deep navels and poor personal hygiene. UPS could easily be misdiagnosed and mistreated due to its rarity and lack of awareness of the condition by physicians. However, the diagnosis is easy to establish with physical examination and a detailed history. Although it is being diagnosed and reported more frequently, there is still no consensus regarding best treatment options. CASE REPORT In this report, we present two cases of UPS, one in a man and one in a woman, who had typical symptoms of pain, swelling, and intermittent malodorous discharge from the umbilicus...

INTRODUCTION: Psoriatic patients on tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitors (TNFi) may be at increased risk for upper respiratory tract infections, including chronic rhino-sinusitis (CRS). Rarely, CRS can progress to orbital cellulitis (OC), an emergent ophthalmic complication wherein respiratory flora from paranasal sinus disease intrude the retro-orbital space. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Single case report. RESULTS: We report the first case, to our knowledge, of an invasive sinusitis that rapidly evolved into OC in a patient receiving adalimumab treatment for plaque psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis...

Diagnosis of dilation (D) cardiomyopathy (CMP) requires exclusion not only of inflammatory and genetically determined forms but also of some rare diseases. This 51 year old patient with history of moderate arterial hypertension approached a cardiologist because of new onset atrial fibrillation and dyspnea. Echocardiography detected dilation of all cardiac chambers with relatively preserved ejection fraction, causing suspicion of DCMP. Among conditions excluded were coronary atherosclerosis, congenital heart defect with left to right shunt, primary pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary embolism, hypertensive heart, tachycardia induced CMP, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, noncompaction myocardium...

Background:Staphylococcus aureus biofilms contribute negatively to a number of chronic conditions, including chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). With the inherent tolerance of biofilm-bound bacteria to antibiotics and the global problem of bacterial antibiotic resistance, the need to develop novel therapeutics is paramount. Phage therapy has previously shown promise in treating sinonasal S. aureus biofilms. Methods: This study investigates the long term (20 days) safety of topical sinonasal flushes with bacteriophage suspensions...

A 12-year-old Norwegian Fjord gelding was diagnosed with paranasal sinusitis as a post-operative complication of tooth repulsion surgery. The infection with inspissated purulent material persisted despite sinus trephination and lavage, and systemic antimicrobial therapy. Resolution occurred following infusion of a gelatin/penicillin mixture into the right rostral and caudal maxillary sinus.

REVIEW
Stéphane Vignes, Robert Baran
Yellow nail syndrome (YNS; OMIM 153300, ORPHA662) is a very rare disorder that almost always occurs after 50 years of age but a juvenile or familial form has also been observed. YNS is diagnosed based on a triad associating yellow nail discoloration, pulmonary manifestations (chronic cough, bronchiectasia, pleural effusion) and lower limb lymphedema. Chronic sinusitis is frequently associated with the triad. YNS etiology remains unknown but a role of lymphatic impairment is usually evoked. YNS is more frequently isolated but may be associated in rare cases with autoimmune diseases, other clinical manifestations implicating lymphatic functions or cancer and, hence, is also considered a paraneoplastic syndrome...

BACKGROUND We present a clinical experience with a new local flap procedure, namely the triangular closure technique, for reconstruction of sacrococcygeal skin defects resulting from excision of the pilonidal sinus. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this technique, the defect is surgically converted to a triangle in shape. Then, the triangular defect is closed by transposition of 2 skin flaps designed in an unequal z-plasty manner. Over 6 years, this technique has been used for closure of defects of chronic pilonidal sinus disease in 27 patients (6 females, 21 males)...

Sometimes pain originating from a non-odontogenic pathologic condition is mistaken as endodontic illness, leading to misdiagnosis. The patient can misinterpret the pain as originating from a site different from the actual site, which is known as referred pain. However, the clinician managing pain in the orofacial region needs to be well-informed about the typical signs and symptoms of non-odontogenic diseases and to be able to make the correct referral when necessary for proper diagnosis and treatment. A 43-year-old man presented to the department of conservative dentistry complaining of dental pain...

Chronic rhinosinusitis is an umbrella term for several phenotypes and mechanistically distinct inflammatory diseases of the nose and the paranasal sinuses affecting around 11% of the population in Europe and the USA. Approximately 20% of the patients present with uncontrolled disease despite adequate treatment, and revision surgery is common. While a clinical characterization alone does not improve treatment results, novel but expensive biologics have increasingly become available, but they require a better understanding of the mechanism...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease, which presents as recurrent nodules and sinus tracts (tunnels) with subsequent scarring, predominantly involving the intertriginous regions. Although prodromal symptoms (i.e. various symptoms preceding the eruption of the HS lesions) are often mentioned, there have been no formal investigations into this aspect. Insight into prodromal symptoms may enable patients with HS or dermatologists in choosing a more targeted treatment at a much earlier stage, potentially increasing treatment efficacy and quality of life...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Current rhinologic practice is devoid of minimally invasive procedures dedicated to the treatment of ethmoid sinusitis to improve ventilation and topical drug delivery. We have recently described a handheld spiral punch to create minimally invasive ethmoid punch sinusotomy (EPS) sites into the ethmoid bulla and basal lamella, which significantly increased irrigant access to the ethmoid sinuses in cadaver models. Here, we conducted a clinical feasibility study to determine the initial safety evaluation of EPS in chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis (CRSsNP) patients with active ethmoid disease...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a common condition for which there are numerous medical and surgical treatments. The 22-item Sino-Nasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22) is a patient-reported outcome measure often used with patients diagnosed with CRS. However, there are no utility values associated with the SNOT-22, limiting its use in comparative effectiveness research. The purpose of this study was to establish utilities for the SNOT-22 by mapping responses to utility values associated with the EuroQol-5-dimensional questionnaire-3-level version (EQ-5D-3L)...

BACKGROUND: Responsiveness, or sensitivity to clinical change, is important when selecting patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) for research and clinical applications. This study compares responsiveness of PROMs used in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) to inform the future development of a highly responsive instrument that accurately portrays CRS patients' symptom experiences. METHODS: Adult CRS patients initiating medical therapy (MT; n = 143) or undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery after failing MT (ESS; n = 123) completed the 22-item Sino-Nasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22), European Position Statement on Rhinosinusitis (EPOS) visual analog scale (VAS), and 29-item Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS-29) at baseline and 3 months after treatment...
