BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to propose a prognostic classification of intestinal-type adenocarcinoma (ITAC) based on literature search and prognostic modeling of cohort data. METHODS: We first conducted a literature search to assess the homogeneity of the reported estimates of 5-year survival and to identify the influence of T classification. We then pooled prospective data from 3 large French and Italian series to predict time to all-cause mortality...

BACKGROUND: Enzootic nasal tumor virus (ENTV-1) is an ovine betaretrovirus that has been linked to enzootic nasal adenocarcinoma (ENA), a contagious tumor of the ethmoid turbinates of sheep. Transmission experiments performed using virus isolated from cell free nasal tumor homogenates suggest that ENTV-1 is the causative agent of ENA; however, this etiological relationship has not been conclusively proven due to the fact that the virus cannot be propagated in vitro nor is there an infectious molecular clone of the virus...

Intracranial metastasis of prostate cancer is rarely seen, and there are few studies in this regard in the literature. Most of these studies in the literature comprise the metastasis of prostate cancer to the sphenoid sinus, and metastasis to the frontal and ethmoid sinus is a much rare entity. Association of visual symptoms, epistaxis, headache, and hematuria may indicate a urologic malignancy in terms of the origin of the primary tumor. This study was aimed to present the prostate cancer case of a 73-year-old patient whose paranasal sinus tomograms revealed the presence of frontal and ethmoid sinus metastasis...

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...

Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is considered as a valid option in the management of nasal adenocarcinoma (ADC). Comparative studies with open approaches are still required. A monocentric retrospective study was carried out from May 2002 to December 2013, including 43 patients with intestinal-type adenocarcinoma of the ethmoid sinus. Non-resectable tumours or recurrences were excluded. Before 2008, open approach with lateral rhinotomy (LR) was performed as the gold standard of treatment. From 2008, ESS was systematically used as a first-line option as long as a complete resection was achievable...

Metastatic lesions to the orbit are most commonly seen with breast, lung, and prostate cancer, but are less commonly seen with colon cancer. Furthermore, the presence of metastatic colon cancer involving the sphenoid wing has only been reported once previously. The authors present a case of a 68-year-old woman with right upper and lower eyelid edema and erythema along with decreased vision, relative afferent pupillary defect, limitation of extraocular movements, and chemosis suggestive of orbital cellulitis...

BACKGROUND: Enzootic nasal tumor virus (ENTV-1) is an exogenous betaretrovirus of sheep that transforms epithelial cells lining the ethmoid turbinates leading to a disease called enzootic nasal adenocarcinoma (ENA). A unique feature of ENA is the apparent absence of a specific humoral immune response to the virus, despite the highly productive infection in nasal tumors. The sheep genome contains approximately 27 copies of endogenous ovine betaretroviral sequences (enJSRVs) and expression of enJSRVs in the ovine placenta and uterine endometrium throughout gestation is thought to induce immunological tolerance to exogenous ovine betaretroviruses, a factor that may influence the likelihood of exogenous ENTV infection and disease outcome...

This study was done to find the commonest variety of sinonasal malignancy and its association with sex.This cross-sectional study was conducted in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Department, Dhaka Medical College & Hospital and in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Department, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University between January 2009 and December 2009. A total of 146 cases of sinonasal malignancy were consecutively included in the study. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess survival, prognostic factors, and complications in a cohort of patients with intestinal-type adenocarcinoma (ITAC) treated with transnasal endoscopic surgery ± radiotherapy (RT). METHODS: Patients with ITAC who underwent endoscopic surgery ± RT at 2 tertiary centers were retrospectively reviewed. Overall survival (OS) and event-free survival were calculated, and statistically significant variables were entered in a multivariate Cox regression model...

INTRODUCTION: Sinonasal cancer is an uncommon neoplasm, often associated with exposure to occupational hazards and delayed diagnosis. CASE REPORT: The authors report a rare case of solitary liver metastasis from ethmoid sinus adenocarcinoma treated by surgical resection. No clinical or radiological sign of recurrence was observed with a follow-up of 3 months. DISCUSSION: Adenocarcinoma of the ethmoid sinus is characterized by its aggressiveness and its tendency to recurrence...

IMPORTANCE: Basal cell adenocarcinoma (BCAC) of the minor salivary gland is an extremely rare disease: the most recent substantive literature review reports only 25 cases. Owing to the rarity of this disease, it has not yet been well characterized in the literature. OBJECTIVE: We sought to expand the knowledge of minor salivary gland BCAC by performing an exhaustive literature review and adding to it a new case that is rare owing to the tumor's size, aggressive nature, and mixed histologic pattern...

OBJECTIVE: Data from several centers worldwide have demonstrated that transnasal endoscopic surgery performed with or without a transcranial approach is capable of achieving radical resection of selected sinonasal malignancies. We report our experience with endoscopic management of sinonasal cancers, with emphasis on naso-ethmoidal malignancies encroaching on the anterior skull base. METHODS: Major series reporting results concerning the endoscopic endonasal approach with or without craniectomy for treatment of sinonasal and anterior skull base cancers were reviewed...

A 76-year-old woman presented with symptoms suggestive of acute sinusitis. Previously, her breast carcinoma was treated with right lumpectomy, adjuvant chemotherapy and breast radiotherapy. She remained free from recurrence for the following 8 years. After initial treatment with antibiotics, the local symptom worsened with exophthalmos, eye blindness and development of an ulceration of the hard palate. MRI showed irregular enhancement of the nasal cavity extended to the maxillary sinus and ethmoidal lamina and concomitant infiltration of the orbit and skull base...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The association between adenocarcinoma of the ethmoid sinuses and woodworkers was identified in the 1960s. Working conditions were poor, and epidemiological studies suggested the carcinogenic agent was hardwood dust created during furniture production. The objectives of this article were to describe the declining incidence of this disease in High Wycombe woodworkers between 1965 and 2012 and to explore the potential reasons for this occurrence. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective case series performed at Wycombe General Hospital...

PURPOSE: This study was designed to assess the efficacy and morbidity of the endoscopic endonasal approach for the treatment of sinonasal adenocarcinomas. METHODS: This was a retrospective, multicenter study of nine French tertiary referral centers, including untreated patients. All patients were operated by an endoscopic approach. Tumors were classified according to the UICC 2002. Demographic, therapeutic, histological, morbidity data, and the course of the disease were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Despite their histological resemblance to colorectal adenocarcinoma, there is some information about the molecular events involved in the pathogenesis of intestinal-type sinonasal adenocarcinomas (ITACs). To evaluate the possible role of TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) gene defects in ITAC, by investigating the immunohistochemical expression of TRAIL gene product in a group of ethmoidal ITACs associated with occupational exposure. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study on 23 patients with pathological diagnosis of primary ethmoidal ITAC...
