  • Angioleiomyoma is a benign smooth muscle and vessel tumor; laryngeal localization is extremely rare with only 24 cases described in the literature; moreover, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of laryngeal mass. Endoscopic complete surgical excision with dissection along capsule is now considered the gold-standard treatment for small and well-circumscribed laryngeal angioleiomy…
  • [Perthes syndrome: about two pediatric cases]. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J. 2020; 35:51.Youssfi SE, Ou-Meskour A, … Harandou M
  • Perthes syndrome is defined by the association among subconjunctival hemorrhage, cervicofacial cyanosis and petechiae up to neurological manifestations. Violent compression of the thorax or thoracoabdominal block after forced inspiration with glottis closure due to effort is the mechanism responsible for the syndrome. Prognosis is generally good if the compression is brief and cardiopulmonary res…
  • Review Article: Structural brain alterations in prelingually deaf. [Review]
    Neuroimage. 2020 Jun 10 [Online ahead of print]Hribar M, Šuput D, … Vovk A
  • Functional studies show that our brain has a remarkable ability to reorganize itself in the absence of one or more sensory modalities. In this review, we gathered all the available articles investigating structural alterations in congenitally deaf subjects. Some concentrated only on specific regions of interest (e.g., auditory areas), while others examined the whole brain. The majority of structu…

  • CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis, correct clinical definition and early medical-surgical treatment of neck abscesses were crucial to reduce complications; LRNEC score, C-reactive protein, glycemia and creatininemia proved to be reliable prognostic indicators of difficult patient management and risk of complications.
  • Use of a Cervicofacial Flap in Closing Large Defects Following Wide Local Excision of Complicated Preauricular Lesions. [Journal Article]
    Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 2020 Jun 09 [Online ahead of print]Akakpo K, Luck K, Chun RH
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a high recurrence rate seen with wide local congenital cyst excisions that have been previously excised, infected, and drained; as well as, cosmetically unfavorable outcomes utilizing traditional repair. Utilizing our closure technique which involves reconstructive local regional flap with cervicoparotid approach our 3 patients have had no reoccurance of cyst or infection. Our approach also maximizes cosmetic outcomes, with reduced scar visibility. Pre and postoperative photos will be shown.
  • [Cervicofacial cellulitis complicated by internal jugular vein thrombosis]. [Case Reports]
    Ann Dermatol Venereol. 2020 Jun 03 [Online ahead of print]Bonné E, Pourcelet A, … Couturier B
  • CONCLUSIONS: It is essential to perform a cervicofacial contrast-enhanced CT scan for any CFC to map the affected areas, detect the primary infection and screen for loco-regional complications such as IVJT. The occurrence of IJVT in an infectious setting should prompt screening for septic emboli, especially pulmonary emboli, as well as performance of a chest CT scan. The presence of septic emboli associated with a recent ENT infection and of IJVT or Fusobacteriumnecrophorum in blood cultures are indicative of Lemierre's syndrome.IJVT is an uncommon complication of CFC that occurs either alone or as part of Lemierre's syndrome.
  • Quality of Life During Treatment for Cervicofacial Non-melanoma Skin Cancer. [Journal Article]
    J Cancer Educ. 2020 Jun 04 [Online ahead of print]García-Montero P, de Gálvez-Aranda MV, … de Troya Martín M
  • Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), despite its low mortality, can impose a significant psychological burden on patients. The aim of the present study is to examine the evolution of the quality of life (QOL) in patients with cervicofacial NMSC during treatment. This prospective cohort study was conducted to a group of patients with cervicofacial NMSC, confirmed by skin biopsy. These patients complet…
  • Cervicofacial actinomycosis of the mandible in a paediatric patient. [Journal Article]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2020 May 27; 13(5)Cho JJ, Shupak RP
  • Cervicofacial actinomycosis remains a rare pathogenic finding in the paediatric population. Diagnosis is challenging, as findings are often non-specific and Actinomyces species are generally difficult to culture. Treatment is a prolonged course of antibiotics, either intravenous and oral, often combined with a surgical procedure to remove the lesion. This patient had non-specific intermittent lef…
  • Orofacial tuberculosis: A diagnostic challenge. [Case Reports]
    IDCases. 2020; 21:e00825.Issa SA, Abdulnabi HA, Jameel ME
  • Tuberculosis is typically a pulmonary chronic infectious disease with a high prevalence in developing countries which carries a substantial rate of mortality. Extrapulmonary disease may occur, mainly second to the endogenous spread of the pathogen from the primary site. Oral or mandibular involvement represents a minority among the reported cases. A 12-year-old female patient with a diffuse left-…
