Vernet syndrome is a unilateral palsy of glossopharyngeal, vagus, and accessory nerves. Varicella zoster virus (VZV) infection has rarely been described as a possible cause. A 76-year-old man presented with 1-week-long symptoms of dysphonia, dysphagia, and weakness of the right shoulder elevation, accompanied by a mild right temporal parietal headache with radiation to the ipsilateral ear. Physical examination showed signs compatible with a right XI, X, and XI cranial nerves involvement and also several vesicular lesions in the right ear's concha...

Flexible bronchoscopy (FBO) and non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) are largely applied in respiratory and general intensive care units. FBO plays a crucial role for the diagnosis of lung infiltrates of unknown origin and for the treatment of airways obstruction due to bronchial mucous plugging and hemoptysis in critical patients. NIPPV is the first-choice ventilatory strategy for acute respiratory failure (ARF) of different causes as it could be used as prevention or as alternative to the conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) via endotracheal intubation (ETI)...

A total of 152 children presenting with various forms of laryngotracheal obstruction were admitted to the Russian Children's Clinical Hospital during the period between 1995 and 2009. Cicatrical stenosis predominated in the structure of chronic laryngeal obstruction accounting for 33% of the cases. In the overwhelming majority of these patients, the main cause underlying the process of formation of rough cicatrical tissue in the larynx was a long-standing intubation injury (3-4 days during the inflammatory reaction and 7-8-day laryngeal intubation period)...

Infantile subglottic hemangioma is a pediatric tumor of endothelial cells characterized by an initial phase of rapid proliferation (around 6 months), followed by slow involution, often leading to complete regression following the first year of life. It is most frequently found in females and it usually it occurs also in the skin. From its position it can cause a progressive airway obstruction, so early diagnosis and treatment are very important. Many treatments have been described in the literature, including systemic steroids, intralesional steroid injection, carbon dioxide laser therapy, submucous resection, interferon alfa-2 and also tracheostomy as last approach...

UNLABELLED: Graves's disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. There are three current therapeutic options: anti-thyroid medication, surgery, and radioactive iodine (I 131). There are few data in the literature regarding the effects of radioiodine therapy on the larynx and voice. The aim and the AIM: os this study was: to assess the effect of radioiodine therapy on the voice of Basedow-Graves patients. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A prospective study was done...

Some authors have demonstrated that a bolus dose of 1 microg/kg followed by an infusion rate of 0.5 microg/kg/min is adequate to attenuate the haemodynamic response to laringoscopy and tracheal intubation. In this study we have evaluated the efficacy of Remifentanil in controlling haemodynamic and some neuroendocrine responses to tracheal intubation in smokers compared with non-smokers. We studied 126 patients, ASA I-II, aged 20-49 yr, submitted laparoscopic cholecystectomy (66 male, 60 female); sixty-three patients were non-smokers and 63 patients smoked 10 or more cigarettes per day...

This paper is an account of the history and development of otolaryngological medical service in Subotica from 1906 to 1996, with three distinctive periods: work on an outpatient basis, inpatient care within the Jewish hospital, and the separate Otolaryngology Ward. The paper presents accommodation capacities, localisation of the Otolaryngology Ward, professional work of the Service over the ninety-year period, and short biographies of doctors.

Vocal cord paralysis can produce extrathoracic airway obstruction with severe respiratory failure, post-surgical traumatism being the most frequent. Definitive treatment can require aritenoidectomy. For emergency treatment tracheal intubation of tracheotomy are frequently needed. We report a patient with acute post-surgical upper airway obstruction successfully treated with CPAP application through nasal mask. A 29 year-old female showed stridor and retraction of the supraclavicular, intercostal and epigastric region following an uncomplicated tracheal extubation immediately after surgery (radical thyroidectomy with nodal dissection)...

We report a case of neurofibroma of the larynx arising from the aryepiglottic fold, surgically removed by direct micro-laringoscopy. From a review of the literature the case is extremelly rare (35 cases until 1963), expecially looking to the age of the patient (3 1/2 years old), that seems to be the lowest reported until now.
