Intracranial metastasis of prostate cancer is rarely seen, and there are few studies in this regard in the literature. Most of these studies in the literature comprise the metastasis of prostate cancer to the sphenoid sinus, and metastasis to the frontal and ethmoid sinus is a much rare entity. Association of visual symptoms, epistaxis, headache, and hematuria may indicate a urologic malignancy in terms of the origin of the primary tumor. This study was aimed to present the prostate cancer case of a 73-year-old patient whose paranasal sinus tomograms revealed the presence of frontal and ethmoid sinus metastasis...

AIM: To evaluate the utility of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in differentiating post-treatment changes from tumour recurrence in head and neck cancers and to establish a threshold apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value to differentiate the two conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective study of 80 treated head and neck cancer patients. The patient cohort consisted of a wide spectrum of head and neck sites, including the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx, paranasal sinuses, orbits, salivary glands, and infra-temporal fossa...

The objective of this study was to investigate the value of parameters assessed with F18-FDG PET/CT in predicting recurrence-free survival (RFS) and disease-specific survival (DSS) in patients with cancer of nasal cavity and paranasal sinus. Thirty-eight patients with cancer of nasal cavity (n = 14) and paranasal sinus (n = 24) who underwent PET/CT prior to curative treatment were enrolled. A volume of interest was placed on PET/CT images covering the entire tumor volume, and the maximum SUV (SUVmax), the mean SUV (SUVmean), and volumetric parameters of metabolic tumor volume (MTV) and total lesion glycolysis (TLG) were measured using thresholds of 40 % of SUVmax...

Importance: Chronic sinusitis may be involved in the etiology of certain head and neck cancers (HNCs), due to immunodeficiency or inflammation. However, the risk of specific HNCs among people with chronic sinusitis is largely unknown. Objective: To evaluate the associations of chronic sinusitis with subsequent HNC, including nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC), human papillomavirus-related oropharyngeal cancer (HPV-OPC), and nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancer (NCPSC), in an elderly US population...

Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (SNEC) is a rare form of malignancy. It mainly presents as bronchogenic neoplasm, and the extrapulmonary form accounts for only 0.1% to 0.4% of all cancers. These extrapulmonary tumors have been described most frequently in the urinary bladder, prostate, esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum, gall bladder, head and neck, cervix, and skin. Primary SNEC of the sinonasal tract is extremely rare with only less than 100 cases reported in the literature. Because of extreme rarity and aggressiveness of the tumor, the management for this entity varies considerably mandating multimodality approach...

The nasal cavity and parasinusal cancer are rare (10% of tumors of the head and neck) and are mainly represented by squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal cavity or the maxillary sinus and adenocarcinoma of the ethmoid sinus (occupational disease, wood dust). The most common clinical sign is nasal obstruction, but tumors can also manifest as rhinorrhea and/or epistaxis (usually unilateral signs). A magnetic resonance imaging of the facial structure is systematic for staging before treatment. The treatment consists of a first surgery if the patient is operable with a resectable tumor...

: The overall incidence of head and neck cancer-which includes laryngeal, hypopharyngeal, nasal cavity, paranasal sinus, nasopharyngeal, oral, oropharyngeal, and salivary gland cancers-has declined in the United States over the past 30 years with the concomitant reduction in tobacco use. Over that same period, however, the worldwide incidence of oropharyngeal cancer has escalated significantly, most notably among men and women under age 60 who live in developed countries. This epidemic rise in oropharyngeal cancer is largely attributed to certain genotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV)...

BACKGROUND/AIM: For advanced paranasal sinus cancer, intra-arterial (I-A) chemotherapy has been applied for improving prognosis and organ preservation. While computed tomographic angiography (CTA) is useful for identifying the tumor-feeding artery, CTA cannot always detect the precise artery. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of endoscopic ICG (indocyanine green) fluorescence technique during I-A chemotherapy for recurrent skull-base cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seven patients with recurrent skull-base cancer were included in this study...

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: Head and neck cancers include epithelial tumors arising in the oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, paranasal sinuses, and nasal cavity. Metastasis is a hallmark of cancer. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small non-coding RNAs involved in cell proliferation, development, differentiation and metastasis. It is believed that miRNA alterations correlate with initiation and progression of cancer cell proliferation or inhibition of tumorigenesis. Moreover, miRNAs have different roles in development, progression, and metastasis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC)...

BACKGROUND: Sinonasal intestinal-type adenocarcinomas (ITACs) are epithelial tumors of the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses, often related to professional exposure to organic dust, mainly wood or leather. It is a rare cancer. If resectable, surgery is the treatment of choice. Postoperative radiotherapy is often indicated to increase local control. Systemic treatment (chemotherapy, targeted agents, or immunotherapy) of irresectable ITACs and/or metastasized disease is less standardized...

A 59-year-old man was admitted to the Department of Ear, Nose and Throat with a complaint of six-month history of left facial numbness and toothache. There was no special previous medical history in addition to smoking. No obvious abnormality in routine electrocardiogram, chest X-ray, abdominal B ultrasound were found. (1) CT scans showed heterogeneous shadows in maxillary sinus with the lesions on the left max- illary bone and evidently destruction of alveolar bone. The histopathological examination revealed bone tissue which was partly covered by an intact adenocarcinoma cell...

The paranasal sinuses are known to be a rare location for metastasis. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most frequent primary tumor to metastasize to the sinonasal region, followed by lung and breast cancer. In particular, clear cell type RCC, which represents approximately 85% of RCCs, is characterized by early metastasis, and it sometimes spreads to unusual sites (1, 2). Metastatic tumors in the paranasal sinuses are distributed in the maxillary, sphenoid, ethmoid, and frontal sinuses, in order of decreasing frequency...

BACKGROUND: Olfactory neuroblastoma (ONB), also known as esthesioneuroblastoma, is a rare malignant head and neck cancer thought to originate from the olfactory epithelium. It typically invades contiguous structures at presentation. We report a very rare case of multifocal and ectopic ONB. CASE REPORT: A 41-year-old man presented with left nasal obstruction and occasional left epistaxis associated with headache. Endoscopic examination of the nasal cavities and computed tomography suggested bilateral polypoid masses...
