It is presented 40-years experience of tracheal adenocystic carcinoma diagnosis and management in 144 patients. Peculiarities of clinical course and choice of diagnostic and therapeutic measures are discussed in relation to stenosis and hypoxia degree and severity of accompanying inflammatory complications of trachea, bronchi and lungs. Technical tools and original methods of resection and reconstruction of trachea and it's bifurcation after extended lung resection are described. Surgical management is carried out in 96 patients: all patients underwent circular resection of trachea (77) or it's bifurcation (19)...

INTRODUCTION: Perineural spread (PNS) is an unusual mechanism of tumor extension and has been typically reported in squamous cell carcinoma, adenocystic carcinoma, and desmoplastic melanoma. Our group has previously demonstrated PNS in rectal, prostate, bladder, and cervical cancer from the primary site along the autonomic nerves to the major somatic nerves and even intradurally. We believe similar principles apply to renal cell carcinoma (RCC) as well, despite the different anatomy. CASE DESCRIPTION: We performed a retrospective search to identify cases of intradural-extramedullary metastases of RCC caused by PNS...

PURPOSE: To review 22 patients with globus pharyngis among a group of 39 patients who presented with burning mouth syndrome and to highlight the clinical presentation and treatment outcome of these oropharyngeal symptoms, often ignored by practicing oral surgeons. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out a retrospective review of 39 patients with burning mouth syndrome seen at oral surgery units of three specialist hospitals in Enugu, Nigeria between 2001 and 2010. The focus was on the 22 of these patients with burning mouth syndrome and globus pharyngis (the persistent sensation of having phlegm, a pill or some other sort of obstruction in the throat when there is none)...

Cis-platinum (II) diammine dichloride (CDDP) is a platinum-based anticancer agent, and is often used for chemotherapy for malignant tumors, albeit CDDP has serious side-effects, including xerostomia (dry mouth). Since patients with xerostomia have reduced quality of life, it is urgent and important to identify nontoxic and natural agents capable of reducing the adverse effect of chemotherapy on salivary gland function. Therefore, we commenced an institutional collaborative project in which candidates of herbal extracts were selected from more than 400 bioactive herbal products for their potential therapeutic effects not only on xerostomia, but also on oral diseases...

The class of salivary gland tumours is very heterogenous, both in a histopathological and clinical sense. Since they are uncommon lesions, their clinical management is still problematic. Molecular mechanisms underlying the development of these cancer types may be fundamental for the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of this disease. In this study, the gene expression of nuclear factor-kappa B (NKkB1/p65), c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK1) and growth arrest and DNA damage (GADD45A), which all play an important role in inflammatory and cell survival mechanisms, was assessed in benign and malignant neoplasms of the salivary gland...

BACKGROUND: Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the respiratory tract is a rare form of malignant neoplasm that arises from salivary glands. A surgical resection with or without radiotherapy is commonly recommended. For inoperable patients, radiotherapy and endobronchial treatment, which include laser and stent insertion, are important therapeutic modalities. AIM: To summarize our experience in adenocystic carcinoma of the respiratory tract. METHODS: Seven patients with adenoid cystic carcinoma were diagnosed and treated in the Pulmonary Institute at Rabin Medical Center, a tertiary care hospital in central Israel in 2000-2006...

BACKGROUND: The main problem of the management of suspected pleomorphic adenoma of the lacrimal gland is the safety of the preoperative diagnosis without biopsy. The current clinical standard (en bloc resection if suspected) has been questioned in this regard in recent publications. In this context we have analysed all consecutive lesions of the lacrimal gland region in our department for 5 years and evaluated pre-and intraoperative clinical and histological findings in regard to the safety of the preoperative diagnosis pleomorphic adenoma...

Cancer complicates approximately 0.1% of all pregnancies. Primary tracheal carcinoma is one of very rarely seen tumors and the rate of its being seen makes up approximately % 0.2 of all tumors of respiratory tract. The patient, 28 years old, who has 28-weeks-pregnant, was diagnosed with primary tracheal adenocystic carcinoma. Patient was made operation as thoracotomy and tracheal tumor was removed at the 28(th) week of pregnancy. Patient was delivered with sectio abdominale at the 39(th) week of pregnancy. Primary tracheal adenocystic carcinoma is very rarely seen tumors and it is the first tracheal ACC with pregnancy case in literature to have been detected and surgically treated during pregnancy...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article reviewed the recent developments in molecular targeted therapy in head and neck cancers. A brief summary of other pathways of interest is also enclosed. RECENT FINDINGS: The use of cetuximab in squamous cell head and neck cancer is associated with clinical benefit and, in some cases, survival. However, the use of targeted agents beyond cetuximab in this disease remains investigational. Combination therapy of molecular targeted agents with chemoradiation in the locally advanced setting of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas and nasopharyngeal cancer shows early promising results, but at the expense of increased toxicity...

BACKGROUND: Salivary glands tumors are relatively uncommon neoplasm with widely variable histopathologic and biologic characteristics. Alteration in some proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes may lead to the development and progression of these tumors. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of P(53) and bcl-2 in some salivary gland tumors in relation to tumor size, histologic grade, and extent of invasion. SETTING AND DESIGN: The sample consisted of 22 formalin-fixed paraffin embedded blocks of benign and malignant salivary glands tumors...
