In western countries, 85% of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyp disease reveals a type 2 inflammatory pattern with expression of IL-4, -5, and -13 as well as increased concentrations of IgE, whereas chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps merely expresses these biomarkers. The degree of type 2 inflammation furthermore is associated with disease severity, asthma comorbidity, and recurrence of disease after surgery. Therefore, these biomarkers also form the targets for innovative therapeutic approaches such as monoclonal antibodies directed against IgE, IL-5, and IL-4 receptor alpha, blocking the activity of IL-4 and -13...

Background. Chromium, Cobalt and Nickel are responsible for contact dermatitis, that is largely prevalent in the general population. They can act also as irritants in the upper and lower respiratory airways. Also rhinitis (allergic and nonallergic) is a high prevalence disorder. Both diseases could share some common inflammatory mechanisms, but the clinical association between skin sensitization to metals and rhinitis was never studied. Objective. We assessed the presence of skin sensitization to metals in subjects with rhinitis...

BACKGROUND: Adenotonsillectomy (AT) is the most commonly performed procedure for sleep disordered breathing (SDB) in pediatrics. However, 20-40% of patients will have persistent signs and symptoms of SDB after AT. Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) has the potential to individualize surgical treatments and avoid unnecessary or unsuccessful surgeries. The objective of this study was to determine the predictors of failure of DISE-directed adenoidectomy and/or tonsillectomy in otherwise healthy children with SDB...

Meningiomas are common intracranial neoplasms but extracranial meningioma of the paranasal sinus is extremely rare. The recommended treatment of these meningothelial tumors is complete surgical excision. The authors report a 79-year-old woman presenting with facial pain and nasal obstruction for several months. Endoscopic nasopharyngeal examination showed a right nasal mass that arose from the nasopharynx and reached around the middle meatus. Gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging showed a well-circumscribed nasopharyngeal mass, which originates from the right rosenmuller fossa and extends to the right nasal cavity...

Malignancies of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are well known, but have uncommon presentations. Late diagnosis and local extension are significant prognostic factors associated with a poorer treatment outcome. Thus, refinements of the diagnostic procedures to enhance the sensitivity of the clinical evaluation are desirable. We here describe a case of endonasal lymphoma, in which the lesion was hardly visible and initially ignored at ordinary white light (WLI) nasoendoscopy, but easily recognisable, clearly pathogenic and well demarcated when illuminated with narrow band imaging (NBI) at a later session...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Sniff test is a common method before unsedated transnasal EGD (UT-EGD) to select a nostril insertion site. Yet, there is no objective method to select a more specific meatus insertion tract for anesthesia and insertion. We devised a endoscopic meatus scoring scale by anterior meatuscopy to select the most optimal meatus insertion tract. We hypothesized that meatuscopy instead of sniff test might improve tolerance and reduce adverse events during nasal anesthesia and UT-EGD...

Rhinoscopy became a formal field of study in the mid-nineteenth century as improvements in nasal specula were made and the potent vasoconstrictive effects of cocaine on the intranasal tissues were discovered. Since then, a multitude of advances in visualization and illumination have been made. The advent of the Storz-Hopkins endoscope in the mid-twentieth century represents a culmination of efforts spanning nearly 2 centuries, and illumination has evolved concomitantly. The future of endoscopic sinus surgery may integrate developing technologies, such as 3-dimensional endoscopy, augmented reality navigation systems, and robotic endoscope holders...
