BACKGROUND: Deglutition dysfunction like dysphagia may be associated with cervical symptoms. FINDINGS: A young female complained of pain on the neck and swallowing dysfunction that was reduced by means of isometric contraction of cervical muscles. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an anterior C5-C6 disc protrusion associated with a lesion of the anterior longitudinal ligament. Barium radiograph showed a small anterior cervical osteophyte at C6 level and dynamic X-ray excluded anatomical instability...

The longus colli muscle is a neck flexor believed to play an important role in pain originating in the neck region, including pain resulting from whiplash injuries. Despite the clinical importance attributed to it, the pain referral pattern of the longus colli has previously been described only in a small cohort of subjects. Here, we aim to delineate the pain referral pattern of the longus colli muscle. Thirty-five healthy volunteers underwent deep massage of the longus colli followed by dry needling of the muscle...

Enhanced recovery programs (ERP) represent a multimodal approach to perioperative patient care. The benefits of ERP are well demonstrated in colorectal surgery and Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS®) programs, that epitomise the ERP concept, have being introduced in different specialties, including vascular, gastric, pancreatic, urogynecologic and orthopaedic surgery. However, no ERP has been proposed for head and neck surgery. We developed an expert-opinion-based ERP for laryngeal surgery based on the key principles of colorectal surgery ERAS®...

The quadrangular space is a space in the axilla bounded by the inferior margin of the teres minor muscle, the superior margin of the teres major muscle, the lateral margin of the long head of the triceps brachii muscle and the surgical neck of the humerus, medially. The axillary nerve (C5-C6) and the posterior circumflex humeral artery and veins pass through this space in order to supply their territories. The subscapularis muscle is situated into the scapular fossa and inserts itself into the lesser tubercle of the humerus, thus helping stabilize the shoulder joint...

BACKGROUND: The external carotid artery (ECA) is the main high-flow donor for extracranial-intracranial revascularization procedures. However, anatomic restraints limit the availability of ECA in posterior exposures of the craniocervical junction aimed for bypass to distal vertebral artery segments. OBJECTIVE: To examine the feasibility and safety of exposure of the ECA through the posterior triangle of the neck. METHODS: A preliminary feasibility study on the posterior neck exposure of the ECA was performed in 1 cadaveric head (2 sides) followed by a morphometric study on 9 cadaveric heads (18 sides)...

Hyalinizing clear cell carcinoma (HCCC) is an uncommon low-grade minor salivary gland neoplasm that usually arises in the head and neck region. We report a 55-year-old man who presented with a 2.5 cm lung mass that was partially obstructing the right bronchus intermedius. The tumor consisted of cords and nests of clear and eosinophilic cells in a hyalinized stromal background. The neoplastic cells expressed cytokeratin (CK) 7, CK 5/6, high-molecular weight cytokeratin (34BE12), p63 and p40, while TTF-1, napsin A, CK20, S100, smooth muscle actin, synaptophysin and chromogranin were negative...

INTRODUCTION: Myofascial pain is a common impairment treated with various manual interventions including spinal thrust manipulation and stretching; however, the comparative efficacy of each intervention is uncertain. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to evaluate thrust manipulation targeting the cervicothoracic junction compared to a manual stretch of the upper trapezius muscle on cervical range of motion and upper trapezius pressure pain thresholds (PPTs). METHODS: Healthy participants with no significant history of neck pain were randomized into a thrust manipulation group, a stretching group, or a control group...

Myopericytoma is a benign tumor of concentrically distributed perivascular myoid cells. Its molecular basis and relationship with myofibroma/myofibromatosis and other pericytic tumors are not fully understood. In our consultation/surgical files of over 1000 myopericytic lesions, we identified 11 cases with diffuse dermal/subcutaneous involvement by microscopic myopericytomatous nodules, a phenomenon we have termed myopericytomatosis. Myopericytomatosis affected mostly adults (female:male=8:3; median age, 37 y; range, 9 to 63 y) in the lower extremities (foot/ankle, 5; calf, 3; knee, 1; thigh, 1; neck, 1) over months to 25 years, ranging from 1...

A lipoma is a slow-growing, benign tumor and is usually asymptomatic; hence, surgical intervention can often be avoided in patients with these tumors in the cervical and cranial area. Lipomas arise most commonly in the subcutaneous fat, but occasionally in muscle tissue. Intramuscular lipomas in the cervico-cranial area have rarely been reported. We describe here a patient with a large intramuscular lipoma in the deep cervical tissue. The patient experienced troublesome pain in the neck and occipital area, and surgical treatment was therefore suggested...

Immune-mediated adverse effects of immune checkpoint inhibitors are rather common, but neuromyopathic immune-related adverse events are very rare. In this report, we present a unique case of a patient with a complex neuromyopathic syndrome with axonal neuropathy and inflammatory myopathy after a single dose of pembrolizumab. An 82-year-old patient with a previously untreated stage IIIc melanoma developed ptosis in the left eye, generalized weakness, and neck and shoulder pain 15 days after pembrolizumab administration...

OBJECTIVE The mesodermal derangement in Chiari Type I malformation (CMI) has been postulated to encompass the cervical spine. The objectives of this study were to assess the cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of cervical paraspinal muscles (PSMs) in patients with CMI without syringomyelia, compare them with those in non-CMI subjects, and evaluate their correlations with various factors. METHODS In this retrospective study, the CSAs of cervical PSMs in 25 patients were calculated on T2-weighted axial MR images and computed as ratios with respect to the corresponding vertebral body areas...

Hypomyopathic dermatomyositis (HDM) is a rare form of dermatomyositis (DM). Interstitial lung disease (ILD) associated with clinically amyopathic DM (CADM-ILD) or hypomyopathic DM (HDM-ILD) is a rare condition with a more unfavorable prognosis than ILD associated with classic DM (CDM-ILD). There is no effective treatment for HDM-ILD. A 62-year-old woman with a 6-month history of chronic polyarthritis and myalgia presented skin lesions characteristic of DM (erythematous lesion on extensor surface of elbows, Gottron's papules, V-neck sign) with no clinical muscle impairment (global muscle strength: grade 5)...

The highly enlarged proboscis in adult thorny-headed worms of the genus Apororhynchus suggests that its inner organization might be specialized as well. However, what kind of changes occurred in the stem line of monogeneric Apororhynchida is widely unknown and there are different conceptions regarding the presence/absence of several muscles. To expand our knowledge on this topic, I examined ethanol-fixed specimens, whole mounts, and semi-thin sections of three Apororhynchus species using the light microscope...
