RATIONALE: Perimesencephalic nonaneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (PNSAH) is characterized by a pattern of extravasated blood restricted to the perimesencephalic cisterns, normal angiographic findings, and an excellent prognosis with an uneventful course and low risks of complication. The precise etiology of bleeding in patients with PNSAH has not yet been established. The most common hypothesis is that PNSAH is venous in origin. Intracranial venous hypertension has been considered as the pivotal factor in the pathogenesis of PNSAH...

BACKGROUND: Most recent Chest 2008 guidelines counsel at least 3 months of anticoagulation for acute upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis (UEDVT). These guidelines are inconsistently followed, perhaps owing to relatively limited information regarding clinical outcomes among patients with UEDVT. Our institution maintains an UEDVT registry of consecutively encountered patients with sonographically confirmed UEDVT. We analyzed patient characteristics, treatment, and outcomes among these patients...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to identify the causes of prolonged facial edema and its associations with other clinical factors. Facial edema sometimes is observed in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), but its prevalence and association with other factors is unclear. METHODS: Between July 2003 and July 2007, the medical records from 264 patients with HNSCC were reviewed. Prolonged facial edema is defined as persistence of edematous status (largest thickness >5 mm by CT scan) for more than 100 days...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Lemierre's syndrome is characterized by a history of recent oropharyngeal infection, clinical or radiological evidence of internal jugular vein thrombosis, and isolation of anaerobic pathogens, mainly Fusobacterium necrophorum. It was once called the forgotten disease because of its rarity, but it may not be that uncommon after all. This review aims to provide physicians with an update on the etiology, management, and prognosis of Lemierre's syndrome. METHODS: Systematic review using the terms: Lemierre's syndrome, postanginal septicemia, fusobacterium, internal jugular vein thrombosis...

Classically, Lemierre syndrome is a rare clinical entity in which acute oropharyngeal infection causes septic internal jugular vein thrombosis and leads to septic lesions to distant organs, such as the lung. Lemierre syndrome also presents with odontogenic infections, mastoiditis, parotitis, and sinusitis. We report the first case of Lemierre syndrome following acute isolated sphenoid sinusitis that was complicated with cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis and bilateral infectious aneurysms of the intracavernous internal carotid artery...

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck most often spreads via direct extension or through lymphatics to regional lymph nodes. This is a unique case of a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal dorsum with direct vascular invasion of the facial vein. This was initially incorrectly identified as a regional level Ib lymph node metastases, and the intervening venous structures were neither extirpated during an initial surgery nor recognized during subsequent radiation therapy. The patient then presented with a sizable recurrence in the right suborbital subcutaneous tissue region extending into the neck and internal jugular vein...

BACKGROUND: Thromboses of the upper limp and neck are rare in comparison with those of the lower extremities. Internal jugular vein thrombosis (IJVT) is a serious event with a potentially fatal outcome. Complications include pulmonary embolism, sepsis with septic emboli to different organs and tissues as well as intracranial propagation of the thrombus with cerebral edema. As any thrombosis, IJVT is precipitated by Virchow's triad: endothelial damage, alteration of blood flow and hypercoagulability...

Iron deficiency anemia is a rare cause of cerebral sinovenous thrombosis in children. We report three cases of cerebral sinovenous thrombosis and iron deficiency anemia treated at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, between 1998 and 2001. The children were 9, 19, and 27 months old at the time of admission. Hemoglobin levels ranged from 6.6 to 7.0 g/dL, mean corpuscular volume levels from 45 to 56 fL, and platelet counts from 248,000 to 586,000/microL. Magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance venography revealed thrombosis of the straight sinus and internal cerebral veins in all three children, with the addition of the vein of Galen, left transverse and sigmoid sinuses, and upper left internal jugular vein in one child...

OBJECT: Tumors of the glomus jugulare are benign, slow-growing paragangliomas. Their natural history, surgical treatment, and outcome have been well addressed in the recent literature; however, there remains a subgroup of complex tumors--multiple, giant, malignant, neuropeptide-secreting lesions, and those treated previously by an intervention with an adverse outcome--that is high risk, presents surgical challenges, and is associated with treatment controversy. In this article the authors report on a series of patients with complex glomus jugulare tumors and focus on treatment decisions, avoidance of complications, surgical refinements, and patient outcomes...

Deep neck infection may be lethal, especially when life-threatening complications occur. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 184 patients with deep neck infection who were treated at Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital during the past 6 years. Factors such as age, sex, hospitalization days, clinical presentations, involved spaces, imaging studies, microbiology, and treatment method were analyzed. There were 122 men and 62 women with a mean age of 41.7 years. The average hospitalization was 8.4 days. The involved spaces, determined by physical examination and radiologic findings, were the peritonsillar space (59 patients), parapharyngeal space (77 patients), submandibular space (55 patients), and retropharyngeal space (20 patients)...

Vascular access for haemodialysis has seen many developments in recent times. Double lumen catheters introduced into wide bore veins have replaced the traditional Scribner shunt as temporary access thus reducing the complications and morbidity associated with it. Cuffed tunnelled internal jugular catheters and synthetic arteriovenous (AV) grafts usually made of polytetrafluoroethylene are the new additions to the vascular access armamentarium, but the AV fistula introduced in 1966 still remains the life-line for chronic haemodialysis patient...

A retrospective study was carried out of 224 horses operated for strangulating small intestine obstructions. Fifty-four horses were euthanized and 5 horses died during surgery which means that 165 (73%) were allowed to recover. Of these, 53 horses were euthanized or died in the clinic and 112 (50%) were discharged from the hospital. Of 90 horses available for follow-up 1 year postoperatively, 76 (84%) were still alive. The most important causes of death or reasons for euthanasia in the direct post-operative period were post-operative paralytic ileus, (adhesive) peritonitis and intra-abdominal haemorrhage...

A benign oropharyngial infection without appropriate treatment can be complicated by a jugular vein thrombosis and disseminated septic embolies with deleterious pulmonary effects. This septic clinical picture most commonly known as Lemierre syndrome is attributed to Fusobacterium necrophorum, a Gram negative anaerobic bacilli. We describe a case of a young patient who has presented this syndrome accompanied by typical pulmonary manifestations. Adequate antibiotic treatment for 3 weeks associated with anticoagulant treatment for about 3 months duration have allowed a complete recovery without sequel...
