Amygdaloid cysts are benign dysembryologic cystic tumors developing in the anterolateral portion of the neck. They account for 2% of all neck tumors located in the laterocervical region. They mostly result from branchial cleft abnormalities, accounting for 6.1-85.2% of all second branchial cleft abnormalities. They are due to the persistence of the cervical sinus during the differentiation of the branchial apparatus. They manifest as a laterocervical swelling in the anterior edge of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. The diagnosis of cyst is confirmed by ultrasound and CT scan. Treatment is based on surgical resection. We here report the case of a 24-year old woman presenting with voluminous left laterocervical swelling evolving over the past 3 years without any associated symptoms. Exploratory cervicotomy with anatomopathological examination were performed. The histologic diagnosis of amygdaloid cyst with no sign of malignancy was retained. This study aims to analyze the anatomoclinical features and to discuss the therapeutic options for the management of this disease.
- Nailfold capillary changes in adult new-onset dermatomyositis: a prospective cross-sectional study. [Journal Article]
- CRClin Rheumatol 2019 Apr 23
- CONCLUSIONS: The NC may be a useful tool to assess disease activity in recent-onset DM, and it can also reinforce the role of ANG in the angiogenesis of this myopathy.
- Ukrainian priorities for herpesvirus infections that affect the central nervous system. [Journal Article]
- WLWiad Lek 2018; 71(7):1289-1294
- CONCLUSIONS: Conclusions: The most frequently diagnosed infections in hospital based study were Human herpesvirus 5 (EBV), followed by HSV-1/2, CMV, and HHV-7. Significant part of patients (35.5 %) were co-infected with two or three HVs. Predisposing factor for Ukrainian population is sex.

- CONCLUSIONS: We have found independent predictors of BCVI in pediatric patients. These may help in identifying children that may benefit from screening with CTA of the neck.

Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is among the most common spinal cord disorders of the elderly. Muscle fat infiltration (MFI), a potential pathological sign of muscle adiposity, may contribute to or be associated with pain/disability/impairments in patients with CSM. We examined the relationship between MFI and CSM's clinical manifestations by enrolling nine CSM patients and five aged-matched controls to undergo MRI imaging of the cervical spine with MFI. A blinded investigator calculated MFI for each of the bilateral multifidii muscles from C3 to C7 on the MRI images. Nurick scores, Neck Disability Index, and modified Japanese Orthopedic Association scores were collected for all patients. CSM patients and controls were equivalent with respect to age, height, weight, gender, race, smoking status, and employment status. MFI was higher in patients with CSM than in controls (31.7% v. 24.6%, respectively, p = 0.0178). Higher MFI was associated with increased disability on the Nurick scale (p = 0.0371). MJOA scores correlated linearly with MFI (R = 0.542, p = 0.0453), but not NDI (p = 0.3125). Increased MFI of the multifidus muscles is associated with cervical myelopathy and a clinically significant decline in sensorimotor function as measured by mJOA and Nurick scores. Spinal injury in CSM may lead to secondary muscle loss and muscle fat infiltration.
- Incidence of intraoperative hearing loss during middle cranial fossa approach for repair of superior semicircular canal dehiscence. [Journal Article]
- JCJ Clin Neurosci 2018; 54:109-112
- CONCLUSIONS: The results of this retrospective review demonstrate a low risk for hearing loss due to SSCD surgery via the middle fossa craniotomy approach.
- Correlation between disease activity and serum ferritin in clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis with rapidly-progressive interstitial lung disease: a case report. [Case Reports]
- BRBMC Res Notes 2018 Jan 16; 11(1):34
- CONCLUSIONS: In this case, triple combination therapy was not effective for the patient's respiratory condition. The serum ferritin level was correlated with disease activity and was more useful than chest radiography for monitoring clinical status.

A 68-year-old man presented with polyarthritis, proximal muscle weakness, and erythema of the face, arms, neck, and anterior chest that resembled the V-neck sign. Initially, dermatomyositis (DM) was considered because of the erythema, polyarthritis, and muscle weakness. He also had mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy on contrast-enhanced computed tomography. Unexpectedly, a biopsy of the forehead skin revealed numerous multinucleated giant cells. A biopsy of a solitary nodule on the dorsum of his right middle finger revealed similar multinucleated giant cells with ground-glass cytoplasm, leading to the diagnosis of multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MRH). Although MRH is rare, it should be remembered that MRH can mimic DM.
- Complete torsion of gallbladder following laparoscopic cholecystectomy: A case study. [Journal Article]
- IJInt J Surg Case Rep 2017; 37:257-260
- CONCLUSIONS: Combined acute onset of abdominal pain with characteristic radiological findings made it possible to precisely diagnose gallbladder torsion.Laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be the gold standard treatment for gallbladder torsion after a preoperative diagnosis is made.

- Lancisi's sign and central venous catheter tip position: a case report. [Case Reports]
- JVJ Vasc Access 2018; 19(1):92-93
- CONCLUSIONS: The inappropriate placement of a 25-cm temporary CVC in the right internal jugular vein worsened the tricuspid valve regurgitation, which became evident by the Lancisi's sign. Removal of the temporary CVC from the right ventricle resulted in improved right cardiac function. Safe approaches recommended by guidelines for the CVC insertion technique and for checking the tip position should be applied in order to avoid complications.
