BACKGROUND: False-positive radioiodine (RAI) uptake related to chronic sinusitis and mucocele has only rarely been reported in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) even with the recent use of single photon emission tomography with computed tomography (SPECT/CT) acquisition. No other etiology of sinus RAI uptake has been mentioned to date. OBJECTIVES: We report five cases of DTC patients with sinus RAI uptake on post-RAI scintigraphy. SPECT/CT clearly localized RAI uptake either in the sphenoid, the maxillary or the frontal sinus and highly suspected mucosal thickening in four patients and sinus aspergilloma in one patient...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the reliability of clinical staging with CT and MRI in sinonasal cancers. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of patients who underwent surgery for a sinonasal cancer. The 7th edition of the TNM classification was used to establish tumour staging. Standardised preoperative CT/MRI staging was compared with the pathological staging based on specimens obtained during surgery from each subsite within and around the tumour. RESULTS: We analysed data from 68 patients between January 2010 and December 2014...

Infratentorial cerebral hemorrhage due to a direct carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) is very rare. To our knowledge, only four such cases have been reported. Cerebellar hemorrhage due to a direct CCF has not been reported. We describe a 63-year-old female who presented with reduced consciousness 3 days after undergoing a maxillectomy for maxillary cancer. Computed tomography showed a cerebellar hemorrhage. Magnetic resonance angiography showed a left-sided direct CCF draining into the left petrosal and cerebellar veins through the left superior petrosal sinus (SPS)...

BACKGROUND: The infraorbital nerve (ION) is a terminal branch of the maxillary nerve (V2) providing sensory innervation to the malar skin. It is sometimes necessary to sacrifice the ION and its branches to obtain adequate maxillary sinus exposure for radical resection of sinonasal tumors. Consequently, patients suffer temporary or permanent paresthesia, hypoestesthia, and neuralgia of the face. We describe an innovative technique used for preservation of the ION while removing the anterior, superior, and lateral walls of the maxillary sinus through a medial endoscopic transnasal maxillectomy...

BACKGROUND: Skin cancers requiring nasal resection may be surgically reconstructed and/or prosthetically reconstructed. Singular surgical reconstruction may be ideal for smaller defects in which the nasal bone and cartilaginous portions of the nose are maintained, but surgical reconstruction falls short of providing acceptable aesthetic results for more extensive nasal defects. Prosthetic rehabilitation, or a combination of surgical and prosthetic rehabilitation, is more appropriate for larger defects, but prosthesis retention can be challenging when adhesives are required on adjacent mobile and secreting skin...

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...

Carcinomas of salivary glands are rare and can affect major or minor salivary glands. Among them, the mucoepidermoid carcinoma is the most prevalent and its occurrence in the first 2 decades of life is highly unusual. Their common clinical aspect to different diseases is a challenge in diagnosis. The objective of this work is to elucidate the diagnosis of lesion in the hard palate of an adolescent patient, brown-skinned, male, forwarded to the oral surgery department at the State University of Londrina. Initially, he complained about a progressive swelling in the last 60 days...

Bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the mandible and/or maxilla is an increasingly recognized, though still rare complication of bisphosphonate therapy. In the present case, the patient presented with a seven-month history of maxillary sinusitis and pain, and was originally diagnosed with a bony metastasis from her primary breast cancer. However, surgical excision and biopsy led to a diagnosis of bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the maxilla. As bisphosphonates are often prescribed for patients with metastatic disease, it is important to recognize that bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis may present similarly to bony metastases...

BACKGROUND: Metronomic chemotherapy consisting of methotrexate and celecoxib recently has shown promising results in multiple studies in head and neck cancers. However, these studies have not included patients with maxillary sinus primaries. Hence, the role of palliative metronomic chemotherapy in patients with maxillary sinus carcinoma that is not amenable to radical therapy is unknown. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of carcinoma maxillary sinus patients who received palliative metronomic chemotherapy between August 2011 and August 2014...

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...

INTRODUCTION: The burden of HPV-related Head and Neck Cancers (HNC) has been rising in the U.S. and other developed countries but this trend has not been reported in Africa. Objective of study was to evaluate the prevalence of HPV infection in HNC cancer cases seen between 1990 and 2011 at the tertiary health care institutions in Nigeria. METHODS: We retrieved 149 head and neck cancer formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tumor specimens diagnosed between 1990 and 2011 from four teaching hospitals in Nigeria...

INTRODUCTION: C-X-C chemokine receptor type 7 (CXCR7) has recently been characterised as a novel receptor for the C-X-C motif chemokine 12 (CXCL12)/stromal cell-derived factor 1-alpha. CXCR7 has been thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis, angiogenesis and tumour metastasis. The present study aimed to examine the expression of CXCR7 in tissue samples of laryngeal cancer and maxillary sinus carcinoma to determine its role in the development of otorhinolaryngologic neoplasms...

Herein, we report a case of drug-induced Stevens Johnson syndrome. (SJS). A 56-year old female visited our hospital complaining of right cheek pain. Local examination revealed that the right ostium of the maxillary sinus was open and that the maxillary sinus mucosa was invaded by tumor. Biopsy revealed a histopathological diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma. We therefore diagnosed the patient as a case of maxillary sinus carcinoma (T3N0M0) based on the CT, MRI and FDG-PET findings. During chemoradiotherapy for maxillary sinus cancer, the patient developed oral mucosal inflammation of progressively worsening severity; we initially thought that the symptom was a side effect of the treatment; however, several days later, skin lesions appeared throughout the body...

Lung adenocarcinoma often makes metastasis to the brain, liver, kidneys, bone, bone marrow and adrenal glands. It can also make metastasis to other parts of the body rarely for example eye, nose, parotid gland and paranasal sinus. We did not encounter with combined ocular bulbus and the maxillary sinus metastases of lung cancer in the accessible literature. In this case report, a patient who was combined ocular bulbus and the maxillary sinus metastases of lung adenocarcinoma will be discussed.

PURPOSE: Our aim was to determine whether the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of the primary lesion demonstrated by [(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) is associated with the prognosis of maxillary sinus cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The relationships of clinicopathological factors including age, T stage, N stage, histologic type, treatment strategy, and primary tumor SUVmax with progression-free (PFS) and overall (OS) survival were evaluated using the log-rank test and Cox method in 31 patients with maxillary sinus cancer before combined superselective intra-arterial chemotherapy using high-dose cisplatin with concurrent radiotherapy, or radiotherapy alone...

OBJECTIVE: Sinonasal tumors are a highly heterogeneous group of tumors that account for less than 1% of all cancers. Precise diagnosis is essential because the natural history, treatment, and prognosis vary for different neoplasms. We reviewed 610 cases of sinonasal lesions to understand this entity better. METHODS: A total of 610 sinonasal biopsies/specimens were received over a period of 10 years (2004-14). All the samples were processed and stained with hematoxylin and eosin...
