BACKGROUND: Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GP) is a systemic necrotizing vasculitis with multi-organ involvement that primarily affects the respiratory tract and the kidneys. Fever in these patients is an indicator of activity; however, if it arises in isolation, the physician should exclude other causes. CLINICAL CASE: Male patient admitted due to an unexplained fever and weight loss; it was diagnosed GP by a history of pauci-immune glomerulonephritis, fixed pulmonary nodules and chronic sinusitis of four years of evolution; however, the fever persisted despite treatment and in the absence of infection...

INTRODUCTION: Cystic fibrosis (CF) - is the most common fatal autosomal recessive disease in Caucasians. A number of reports have described patients who do not meet diagnostic criteria for cystic fibrosis. Atypical or nonclassic CF is characterised by normal or borderline sweat test, pancreatic sufficiency and a monosymptomatic phenotype. For these reasons clinicians should remain alert to the possibility of the occurrence of CF. CASE REPORT: We described a case presentation of massive nasal polyposis and recurrent sinusitis leading to the diagnosis ofcystic fibrosis in a 11-year-old male...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia. The aim of therapy in symptomatic patients is the establishment of a stable sinus rhythm (SR). Catheter ablation with isolation of the pulmonary veins is the essential component of all forms of ablation therapy and provides the most effective treatment option. The most frequently used technologies for pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) are radiofrequency current (RFC)-based and cryoballoon (CB)-guided ablation. Irrespective of the simplification of PVI, CB ablation is characterized by a short learning curve and short procedural times and demonstrated non-inferiority with respect to safety and efficacy when directly compared to RFC ablation for the treatment of patients with paroxysmal AF; however, the clinical outcome in patients with persistent AF is often insufficient when performing pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) alone for stabilization of SR...

Due to the complex anatomy of the anterior skull base and paranasal sinuses, radiologic diagnostics in this area are challenging. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) are the primary indicated modalities. Guidelines helping to select the appropriate modality have been published by the German Society of Head and Neck Radiology and the Society of Otorhinolaryngology. The present article presents an overview of the current radiologic procedures and their optimized implementation using clinical examples...

Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a non-metastasizing neoplasm of mesenchymal origin, arising in the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws. When regarding the whole spectrum of differential diagnoses for osteolytic jaw lesions, OM constitutes a benign tumor rarely located in the maxilla. Radiographically, displacement of teeth and frequent involvement of the sinus will be found with advanced maxillary OM. The tumor can be removed by means of several techniques, ranging from conservative measures to extended surgical procedures that differ according to type of bone resection and reconstruction of the defect...

BACKGROUND: Trigemino-cardiac reflex is a physiologic response of the body to pressure effects in the region of distribution of the trigeminal nerve. Oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures can induce the development of this reflex, which leads to significant changes in the heart rate and sinus rhythms. This study intends to evaluate the effects of this reflex in patients with facial fractures and its subsequent management. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of thirty-seven patients with facial fractures who reported to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Basaveswar Teaching and General Hospital, Gulbarga during a period from July 2015-March 2016 were considered for the study...

PURPOSE: Kinetic parameters derived from dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) were suggested as a possible instrument for multi-parametric lesion characterization, but have not found their way into clinical practice yet due to inconsistent results. The quantification is heavily influenced by the definition of an appropriate arterial input functions (AIF). Regarding brain tumor DCE-MRI, there are currently several co-existing methods to determine the AIF frequently including different brain vessels as sources...

The interaction between fungi and the sinonasal tract results in a range of clinical presentations with a broad spectrum of clinical severity. The most commonly accepted classification system divides fungal rhinosinusitis into invasive and noninvasive subtypes based on histopathological evidence of tissue invasion by fungi. Invasive fungal rhinosinusitis is subdivided into acute invasive and chronic invasive categories. The chronic invasive category includes a subcategory of chronic granulomatous disease. Noninvasive fungal disease includes localized fungal colonization, fungal ball, and allergic fungal rhinosinusitis...

Air embolism (AE) is considered a rare event and can be either iatrogenic or traumatic. Various post-mortem methods to detect AE exist, of which radiology is preferred. The presence of air in the heart can be demonstrated using special dissection techniques where the heart is opened under water or by needle puncture from a water-filled syringe. Three cases of blunt-force head injury are presented herein, with AE being diagnosed by conventional radiography using a Lodox Statscan® full-body digital X-ray machine in all cases...

The classical term "pituitary apoplexy" (PA) describes a clinical syndrome usually characterized by abrupt onset of headache accompanied by neurologic and/or endocrinologic deterioration due to sudden expansion of a mass within the sella turcica as a result of hemorrhage or infarction within a pituitary tumor and adjacent pituitary gland. PA is a medical emergency and a difficult diagnosis to establish. Thus this article reviews the presenting symptoms of PA patients to help clinicians recognize or at least suspect this critical condition early on...

Osteomas are benign osteogenic lesions that result from the proliferation of mature bone. Three variants are known: central, peripheral, and extraskeletal. The peripheral variant is the most common and it most frequently affects the paranasal sinuses, rarely occurring in the jaws. This article describes the case of a 33-year-old white male patient who was referred complaining of facial asymmetry. Clinical examination revealed an increase in volume at the base of the right side of the mandible, hard bony consistency and well delimited, painless to the touch, without signs of infection or intraoral alterations...

Osteomas are located mostly in the mandible followed by paranasal sinuses such as frontal sinuses, ethmoid air cells, maxillary sinuses and rarely based on nazal cavitiy or turbinate. The osteoma located on outside of nazal bone is extremely rare. The authors report an unusual patient of nasal bone osteoma associated with aesthetic problem on nasal dorsum. Outer side of nasal bone osteoma in large diameter causes aesthetic problems. The authors believe that open rhinoplasty approach is successful in this type of patients...
