Nodular fascitis is a benign, reactive, fiboproliferative lesion that is thought to represent an over exuberant reaction to injury or inflammation. Its histological picture is very similar to fibro sarcoma. An accurate diagnosis is imperative to avoid unnecessary aggressive treatment. It occurs most commonly in upper extremities, and rarely in the maxillofacial region. We present a case of aggressive intraosseous nodular fascitis of the mandible involving the vital structures in the neck in a 10 year old boy...

Plantar fasciitis (PF) is the most common cause of chronic heel pain which may be bilateral in 20 to 30% of patients. It is a very painful and disabling condition which can affect the quality of life. The management includes both pharmacological and operative procedures with no single proven effective treatment modality. In the present case series, we managed three patients with PF (one with bilateral PF). Following a diagnostic medial calcaneal nerve (MCN) block at its origin, we observed reduction in verbal numerical rating scale (VNRS) in all the three patients...

The present study analyzed the impact of the running style and the morphologic and functional characteristics of the foot on the incidence of non-traumatic foot and lower limb disorders in runners. From January 2004 to December 2008, we prospectively examined 166 runners, both recreational and competitive, involved in various running specialities, from three athletics clubs in Northern Italy. They were 86 males and 80 females, with a mean age of 31.1 ± 12.2 years. We considered non-traumatic foot and lower limb diseases reported during the follow-up period, which resulted in a minimum sport rest of two weeks...

Objective: To evaluate the clinical profile and outcome in patients with iliopsoas abscess. Methods: A descriptive study was carried out in B.P. Koirala Institute of Health Science, Dharan, Nepal from February 2005 to March 2006. The medical records of all thirty six patients admitted in surgery ward with diagnosis of iliopsoas abscess during the study period were analyzed. Results: Thirty six patients were included the study. There were 22 (61.1%) males and 14 (38.9%) females with a mean age of 24.33 ±19...

Eosinophilic fasciitis is a rare systemic disease characterized by inflammatory thickening of the skin and underlying fascia, peripheral eosinophilia, elevated inflammatory markers and typical biopsy findings. Internal organ involvement is rare unlike in other fibrosing disorders. Though this is usually a benign disease, it is often difficult to diagnose and the course may also be variable. Glucocorticoids are the mainstay of therapy, but in many cases steroid sparing immunosuppressive drugs are required particularly if the diseases has protracted course...

BACKGROUND: Fascial space infections of the head and neck region, usually odontogenic in origin, are routinely treated as an out-patient procedure. Untreated or rapidly spreading odontogenic infections can be potentially life threatening. The present study is a review of patients with orofacial infections who required emergent incision and drainage in the maxillofacial unit of our institution. The need for early presentation is highlighted. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study of patients with orofacial space infections between January 2007 and December 2010...

INTRODUCTION: Reconstruction of anterior abdominal wall after necrotizing abdominal wall infections is a challenge. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 35-year-old lady presented with 20 × 18 cm sized defect of the anterior abdominal wall following fungal necrotizing fascitis. The defect was covered by an overlay prolene mesh and the soft tissue deficit was corrected by pre-expanded epigastric flap based on the superior epigastric artery. CONCLUSION: A concerted multi-specialty effort is needed to correct these defects...

BACKGROUND: Necrotizing fascitis is a progressive, rapidly spreading, inflammatory infection located in deep fascia. It may cause necrosis of skin and subcutaneous tissues. Spreading of it may lead to shock, organ failure and even death. METHODS: In this study, we evaluated prevalence of variables including predisposing factors, clinical and paraclinical findings, distribution of tissue involvement and mortality rate in 102 patients of necrotizing fascitis at our Hospital between the years 1995 and 2005...

Rapidly growing soft- tissue lesions in the oral and maxillofacial region can represent a variety of diagnoses involving radically different treatment modalities. Accurate diagnosis is important to avoid unnecessary and often mutilating surgery. Nodular fascitis is a rapidly proliferating fibroblastic lesion that presents as a tumour- like mass. Up to 20% of cases occur in the head and neck region.

A 62 y.o. male with tight fimosis, swelling, redness, pain on palpating and necrosis of the penis and scrotum was admitted in our clinic, (FGSI = 6) with periferic vasculopathy; and diabetes mellitus type II and he was in dialysis treatment before the hospitalization. The patient was HCV affected. In 24 hours he underwent radical surgical debridement with excision of all necrotic material from penis and scrotum up to the subdermal layer and tissue of doubtful viability for about 75% of the skin and circumcision...

BACKGROUND: Thyroidectomy is rarely complicated by a surgical site infection (SSI). Despite its low incidence, post-thyroidectomy SSI is especially concerning because of its proximity to vital head and neck structures and the very real potential for airway compromise and death. Severe SSIs frequently are caused by Group A Streptococcus (GAS) because of its potential for developing into necrotizing fascitis. No description of the surgical approach to a necrotizing soft-tissue infection after thyroid resection is available in the current literature...

De-focused low energy extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been widely used in various clinical and experimental models for the treatment of painful conditions such as epicondylitis and plantar fascitis and also bone and wound healing. There is evidence that ESWT improves the metabolic activity of various cell types, e.g. chondrocytes and endothelial cells but little is known about its effects on nervous tissue. The aim of this study was to investigate whether ESWT improves the regeneration of injured nerves in an experimental rat model...

Emergency full thickness abdominal wall defects constitute a challenging problem for surgeons. The aim of reconstruction is prevention of evisceration and hernia formation. Staged surgery is recommended in such cases. The first stage consists of wound healing with skin grafts and creation of "planned hernia". Ultimate reconstruction is delayed until good general health state of the patient. In presented case final skin and subcutaneous tissue reconstruction was achieved with island fasciocutaneous antero-lateral thigh flap...

Necrotizing fascitis is a rare but life-threatening soft tissue infection difficult to diagnose at early stage. We describe two patient cases, in which the patients developed a severe necrotizing soft tissue infection after varicose vein surgery. A quick and sufficiently radical surgical treatment is the most significant factor improving the prognosis. All surgical procedures may result in rare but severe complications, which should, however, be taken into account when assessing procedural indications and risks...
