OBJECTIVES: Pediatric tonsillar infections are common, particularly in adolescents. Ultrasonography (US) has high sensitivity and specificity for diagnosing peritonsillar abscesses and can diagnose tonsillitis by enlargement of the gland. In this study, we established normal tonsillar measurements and volumes according to age in pediatric populations. METHODS: Transcervical US of the peritonsillar region to measure tonsillar size and volume was performed in patients who had undergone neck US without throat symptoms from October 2016 to May 2017...

We performed a new procedure for reconstruction of donor site of a deltopectoral (DP) flap. A 58-year-old man presented with a wide subcutaneous abscess, which was caused by acute mandibular osteomyelitis due to dental caries. On admission, the patient received a neck incision for drainage. However, necrosis of the neck skin was observed after drainage. The patient had an 8 × 10 cm skin and soft-tissue defect, which we covered with a DP flap (15 × 7 cm). The DP flap donor site was reconstructed using a 16 × 8 cm pedicled thoracodorsal artery perforator (TDAP) flap...

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignant tumor, mostly involving the minor salivary glands. Herein, we present a case of ACC in a 43-year-old man with symptoms of dental abscess as the initial presentation of the tumor. In spiral computed tomography (CT) scan, soft tissue mass with the erosion of maxillary sinus wall on the right side of the alveolar ridge was evident. Histopathological examination of the excised tumor with immunohistochemical studies (C-kit, Vimentin, pan-cytokeratin, p53, p63, and ki67 positive reaction) confirmed grade 2 ACC in the maxillary sinus...

BACKGROUND: The differential diagnosis in a child with a swelling in the neck is broad. Chronic lymphadenopathy in children quite often leads to extensive blood tests. Cervicofacial non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lymphadenitis is, however, not revealed by blood tests. It is a rare condition, which is mostly seen in young children. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 4-year-old girl had a 9-week history of a swelling in her neck; the skin covering the swelling had been red and flaking for the past week...

Acute calcific tendinitis (ACT) of the longus colli muscle is a rare cause of debilitating neck pain. The ACT is presumed to be an aseptic inflammatory process of the superior oblique tendons of the longus colli muscle. It is often confused with other more concerning conditions including trauma, epidural abscess, disc herniation, and neoplasm. We present two cases of ACT and a brief literature review to stress the risk of misdiagnosis. A 38-year-old male presented with neck pain and stiffness accompanied by dysphagia...
