Temporal bone carcinoma

Neelam Sood, Binit Kumar Khandelia, Gitanjali Bugnait
Cholesteatoma is a well demarcated, non-neoplastic, temporal bone cystic lesion with extensive keratinisation. Keratoma and epidermoid cyst are other possibly more accurate names suggested to describe the same. It can be classified as congenital or acquired. Its management is often complicated by its tendency to recidivism/recurrence. Long standing cholesteatomas can be a precursor for squamous cell carcinoma. We hereby present a case of giant cholesteatoma in a 45-year-old female with radiological involvement of the left temporal region, periauricular region and infratemporal fossa with lytic destruction of left middle ear ossicles, mastoid and squamous part of temporal bone with intracranial extension...

Squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone is a rare and destructive malignancy and represents both diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The complex regional anatomy of the temporal bone requires equally intricate surgical techniques to adequately resect the tumour mass during surgical excision. Adjuvant radiotherapy is offered to patients with advanced disease and has been showed to confer a survival benefit in carefully selected patients. One feared complication of radiotherapy is osteoradionecrosis and is a major obstacle faced in the treatment of head and neck cancers...

PURPOSE: Cortactin is a multidomain protein engaged in several cellular mechanisms involving actin assembly and cytoskeletal arrangement. Cortactin overexpression in several malignancies has been associated with increased cell migration, invasion, and metastatic potential. Cortactin needs to be activated by tyrosine or serine/threonine phosphorylation. The role of cortactin and phosphorylated cortactin (residue tyr(466)) was investigated in temporal bone squamous cell carcinoma (TBSCC)...

Carcinoma in the external auditory canal (EAC) is a rare malignancy with an annual incidence of one per one million people, accounting for less than 0.2% of all head and neck cancers. The most common histopathological type of EAC cancer is squamous cell carcinoma. Verrucous carcinoma is a well-differentiated, low-grade variant of squamous cell carcinoma. It is a locally destructive, invasive, and slow growing tumor that rarely metastasizes. Verrucous carcinoma occurs predominantly in the oral cavity and larynx, and its occurrence in the EAC is extremely rare...

Prostate carcinoma, when metastatic, typically involves bone and produces both osteoblastic and osteolytic changes. A 73-year-old man was admitted to our department because of unilateral progressive proptosis and visual blurriness for 3 months. The patient had a history of prostate adenocarcinoma diagnosis 5 years ago. We report a case of orbital involvement presented that intraorbital mass (including periocular structures), temporal bone and temporal muscle from prostate cancer. The mass was removed with total excision...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary tumor of the liver and the fifth most common cancer in the world. The lungs, bone, and lymph nodes are frequent sites of metastasis of HCC. The purpose of the present study is show that metastases, although rare, must be among the differential diagnosis of skin lesions and that a diagnostic research based on these findings can be conducted. The authors report a rare case of metastatic hepatocellular injury to the scalp and skull treated by a radical surgical approach...

This study evaluated the temporal expression of osteopontin (OPN) in co-cultures of human osteoblastic cells (SAOS-2) and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC)-derived cells (SCC9) and examined the effects of osteoblast-derived OPN on the neoplastic cell phenotype. Additionally, the effects of these co-cultures on subsequent osteoclastic activity were explored. SCC9 cells were plated on Transwell® membranes that were either coated or not coated with Matrigel and were then co-cultured with SAOS-2 cells during the peak of OPN expression...

With exponentially increasing numbers of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the head and neck region, also the locally advanced BCCs are increasing in number. These tumours are associated with aggressive biological behaviour with invasion of soft tissues, organs or bone and present with wide variation in management strategies. The objectives of the study was to describe the biological behaviour of aggressive BCCs and their clinical presentation in the head and neck region with a series of cases treated in our tertiary hospital, discuss management plans of such complex cases in terms of surgical planning and reconstruction...

Temporal bone squamous cell carcinoma (TBSCC) is rare and poses difficulties in diagnosing, staging and management. We describe a case series with six patients who were diagnosed TBSCC, from January 2009 to June 2014, with median age of 62 years old. All patients presented with blood-stain discharge and external auditory canal mass, showing that these findings should highly alert the diagnosis of TBSCC. Three patients staged T3 and another three with T4 disease. High-resolution CT (HRCT) temporal findings were noted to be different from intraoperative findings and therefore we conclude that MRI should be done to look for middle ear involvement or other soft tissue invasion for more accurate staging...
