2. Nguyen RP, Salzman KL, Stambuk HE, Ahuja AT, Harnsberger HR: Extraosseous chordoma of the nasopharynx. AJNR Am J Neuroradiol; 2009 Apr;30(4):803-7
MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - CT Scans.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Extraosseous chordoma of the nasopharynx.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Chordoma is a relatively rare tumor of the skull base and sacrum thought to originate from embryonic remnants of the notochord.
  • When chordomas occur in an extraosseous location, they may mimic other lesions of the nasopharynx.
  • We present 5 cases of primarily extraosseous chordoma involving the nasopharynx in an effort to improve the preoperative diagnosis of this rare tumor.
  • In addition, we review regional notochordal embryology to explain this variant tumor location.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the clinical and imaging data of 5 pathologically proved cases of extraosseous chordoma of the nasopharynx seen or reviewed at our institution during the last decade.
  • RESULTS: The primary clinical complaint in the 5 patients with extraosseous nasopharyngeal chordoma was nasal obstruction.
  • The extraosseous chordomas were centered in the nasopharynx.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Extraosseous nasopharyngeal chordoma is a rare but important lesion to be considered in the differential diagnosis of nasopharyngeal masses.
  • When a midline nasopharyngeal mass is found with an associated clival sinus tract, extraosseous chordoma moves to the top of the differential diagnosis list.
  • Complete removal of the soft-tissue tumor and the clival sinus tract is the treatment of choice in such cases.

  • Osteolipomas of the head and neck are very rare, and there is no reported case of osteolipoma of the nasopharynx in the literature.
  • Here, we present a case of osteolipoma of the nasopharynx in a 21-year-old male who was referred for a nasopharyngeal mass causing a defect in the left half of the soft palate.
  • The well-demarcated, firm tumor was excised through transnasal endoscopic and transpalatal approaches, and the defect of the soft palate was repaired by a superiorly based pharyngeal flap.
  • Osteolipomas should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of nasopharyngeal mass as an extremely rare benign lesion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A variety of different tumour types may arise at a host of sites within the head and neck region.
  • Information extracted from the case notes of patients with histological results included: Age, sex, clinical features, site of tumour, and the histological types of tumour.
  • The International classification of disease oncology (ICDO) ninth version was used to categorize the sites of the tumour.
  • The commonest site were the nose, paranasal sinuses and ears (23.9%), eye (15.2%), nasopharynx (13%), neck (13% -metastatic unknown primary 4.3%), thyroid (12.3%), larynx (10.2%), oral cavity and oropharynx (6.5%), salivary glands (3.6%), mandible (1.4%), and skin (0.74%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This result shows that head and neck cancers occur among Nigerians with no sex differentiation in their prime of life, the histological types are similar to the previous series, however the site seems to have changed with the nose and paranasal sinuses, eye, and nasopharynx being the commonest sites.

  • INTRODUCTION: Hairy polyps are very rare benign tumors that can occur anywhere in the body, and they are the most common congenital nasopharyngeal masses.
  • Flexible endoscopy showed a pale sausage-like mass protruding from nasopharynx just behind the soft palate, to the oropharynx and back.
  • A computed tomography scan showed a 1.8 cm round mass in the right nasopharynx, with central fat density and no intracranial communication.
  • The mass was excised transorally with no evidence of a residual tumor.
  • One theory supports the idea that hairy polyps originate from disturbed development of stomodeum in the 28th week of gestation and regression of the nasopharyngeal membrane.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Paediatric aerodigestive foreign bodies: remember the nasopharynx.
  • INTRODUCTION: Nasopharyngeal foreign bodies are relatively uncommon, compared with other aerodigestive sites.
  • They may mimic a lower airway location, or may be coughed up into the nasopharynx prior to endoscopic evaluation.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience with nasopharyngeal foreign bodies mimicking a more distal airway location.
  • RESULTS: We present a series of four children who were initially thought to have a lower aerodigestive tract foreign body (three respiratory, one oesophageal), but who were finally diagnosed with nasopharyngeal foreign body.
  • The concept of panendoscopy at all foreign body removals is suggested as a means to avoid a missed nasopharyngeal foreign body.
  • CONCLUSION: Although nasopharyngeal foreign bodies are uncommon, their rare ability to mimic distal sites mandates a thorough endoscopic approach to ensure that all sites (i.e. larynx, lungs, oesophagus and nasopharynx) are evaluated endoscopically.

  • [Title] [Comparison of Epstein-Barr virus in nasopharynx tissue and desquamatine cell for diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma].
  • OBJECTIVE: To develop a method for rapid screening and primary diagnosis of the nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC).
  • METHOD: We detected the Epstein Barr virus (EBV) DNA from nasopharynx tissue and desquamative cells in 144 suspicious NPC patients using polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
  • The results were compared with the pathologic diagnosis.
  • There was no significant difference between the results determined by the EBV DNA from nasopharynx tissue and desquamative cells using PCR.
  • CONCLUSION: The detection of EBV DNA from nasopharynx tissue and desquamative cells of the NPC by PCR is a simple, safe, rapid, specific and sensitive technique.
  • It is useful in screening, primary diagnosis, evaluation of the curative effect of the NPC.

  • [Title] Endoscopic assessment of the nasopharynx: an objective score of abnormality to predict the likelihood of malignancy.
  • OBJECTIVES: We developed an objective endoscopic score of abnormality of the nasopharynx to predict the likelihood of malignancy.
  • METHODS: A score sheet with 44 variables was developed to objectively quantify the bilateral endoscopic assessment of the nasopharynx.
  • Patients scheduled to undergo nasopharyngeal biopsies were recruited.
  • The nasopharynx was assessed endoscopically, photographed, and scored on 44 variables.
  • RESULTS: Seventeen patients had carcinoma, and 60 had a benign lesion or no disease.
  • Patients with a nasopharyngeal malignancy scored significantly higher than did patients with a benign lesion or no disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A cutoff score above 12 on the novel objective endoscopic assessment of the nasopharynx measure was highly predictive of possible malignancy.

  • [Title] Growth of the nasopharynx and adenoidal development in Brazilian subjects.
  • The purpose of this research was to study the growth of the nasopharynx and adenoid development.
  • However, the nasopharyngeal free airway space does not decrease in the age group 10 - 11 years, despite the increasing thickness of the adenoid.
  • This is attributable to the downward displacement of the hard palate, resulting in an increase of the free airway space due to growth.
  • Although the nasopharynx follows a growth pattern similar to that of the rest of the body, adenoid tissue does not.

  • [Title] Fibrosing inflammatory pseudotumor of the nasopharynx: MR features and histopathologic correlation.
  • PURPOSE: To describe the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features of six cases of pathologically proven fibrosing inflammatory pseudotumor involving the nasopharynx, and to compare the MR signal intensities of the lesions with histopathologic findings.
  • METHODS: We reviewed the MR finding of six patients with pathologically proved fibrosing inflammatory pseudotumor at the nasopharyngeal wall with respect to the following points: extent, margins, signal intensity and enhancement degree of the lesion; cervical lymphadenopathy and response to steroid therapy.
  • CONCLUSION: Fibrotic inflammatory pseudotumors involving nasopharynx are very rare, and can mimic malignancy.

  • Thyroid-like papillary adenocarcinoma is an extremely rare neoplasm in the nasopharynx.
  • We present a case with a pedunculated tumor in the nasopharyngeal vault and the preoperative biopsy revealed a thyroid-like papillary adenocarcinoma.
  • Complete tumor resection via modified facial translocation was undergone subsequently.
  • Postoperative histopathological examinations and immunohistochemical studies confirmed the diagnosis.
  • Regarding the association with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), the tumor was negative for both small EBV-encoded RNA (EBER) and EBV latent membrane protein-1 (LMP-1) oncogene.
  • This rare neoplasm demonstrated a distinct etiology and nature from typical nasopharyngeal carcinomas and should be managed mainly by surgical resection.

  • [Title] Investigation about the homogeneity of nasopharyngeal microflora at the different location of nasopharynx of children with acute otitis media.
  • OBJECTIVE: Nasopharynx is thought to be a very important site as becterial reservoir for acute otitis media (AOM).
  • In this study, we investigated on the homogeneity of nasopharyngeal microflora at the different location of nasopharynx of children with AOM.
  • METHODS: Thirty nasopharyngeal samples of 15 children with AOM, two samples harvested from both nostrils of each child, were cultured and analyzed by patterns of antibiotic susceptibility and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis analysis (PFGE).
  • RESULTS: A total of 30 nasopharyngeal samples were cultured and 19 isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae from 10 children (66.7%), 8 isolates of Haemophilus influenzae from 4 children (26.7%), and 12 isolates of Moraxella catarrhalis from 7 children (46.7%) were obtained.
  • In all children except three, the nasopharyngeal microflora at right and left orifice of the eustachian tubes showed no obvious differences in the bacterial species and quantities.
  • CONCLUSION: These results suggest that the microflora at the different location of nasopharynx of children with AOM is almost homogeneous, irrespective of the clinical signs.

  • METHODS: Nasopharyngeal specimens for cultures were taken from 20 smokers and 20 nonsmokers.
  • RESULTS: Fourteen potential pathogens (0.7 per patient) were isolated from nasopharyngeal cultures obtained from 11 of the 20 smokers, and 4 (0.2 per patient) were recovered from 3 of the 20 nonsmokers (p < 0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings illustrate for the first time that the nasopharyngeal flora of smokers contains fewer aerobic and anaerobic organisms with interfering capabilities and more potential pathogens compared with those of nonsmokers.

  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: There is controversy in whether the nasopharynx should be included in target volume for radiotherapy of hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
  • This study was to analyze the necessity of radiotherapy including the nasopharynx for patients with hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
  • The nasopharynx was included in target volume in 78 patients, but excluded in 69 patients.
  • Between nasopharynx-included and nasopharynx-excluded groups, there was no significant difference in 5-year overall survival rate (24.44 % vs. 20.68%, kappa2=0.10,P=0.76),5-year progression-free survival rate (15.99% vs. 10.91%, kappa2=0.65, P=0.42), relapse rate and metastasis rate (kappa2=1.56, P=0.21).
  • Relapse in cervical lymph nodes occurred in 39 patients; no relapse in the nasopharynx was observed.
  • The target volume including the nasopharynx is not recommended.

  • OBJECTIVE: To explore the impact of nasopharynx and palatum durum on the pathogenesis and severity of OSAHS patients via CT scan, and to establish a foundation to select the suitable surgical procedures.
  • Successive CT scanning were undertaken from roof of nasopharynx to glottis and then the CT scan slices were reconstructed in sagittal plane through Efilm software.
  • The parameters were measured in the midline of the nasopharynx,the longest section of the hard palate and then were analyzed by t test.
  • The posterior nasal spine-culminating point of nasopharynx (PNS-R) and posterior space of hard palate (PNS-B) of OSAHS patients were less than those of normal adults.
  • The AHI of 24 OSAHS patients with smaller nasopharynx and longer hard palate were larger than that of the other 15 OSAHS patients, meanwhile the SaO2 of the former patients were lower than the latter.
  • CONCLUSION: Though the narrow of the upper airway in OSAHS patients mainly attribute to the nasopharynx, the nasopharyngeal size and the length of hard palate are also involved in the pathogenesis and severity of OSAHS and should be considered when choosing the surgical procedures.

  • The purpose of this study was to document the MR appearance of unusual nonmalignant polyps or masses (NMPMs) in the nasopharynx and sphenoid sinus arising after radiation treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The MR imaging reports of patients undergoing imaging after radiation therapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma were reviewed retrospectively to identify patients with unusual polyps and masses in the nasopharynx.
  • RESULTS: The MR imaging reports of 1282 patients were reviewed, and 11 patients (1%) with NMPMs in the nasopharynx or sphenoid sinus were identified.
  • Two patterns were identified: contrast enhancing nasopharyngeal polyps ranging in size from 1 to 5 cm (n = 5) and sphenoid sinus masses consisting of a nonenhancing mass filling a nonexpanded sinus (n = 4) and a heterogeneous enhancing mass expanding the sinus (n = 2).
  • Osteoradionecrosis produced a large defect in the roof of the nasopharynx causing direct communication with the sphenoid sinus (n = 6).
  • CONCLUSION: NMPMs in the nasopharynx and sphenoid sinus are rare complications after radiation therapy to the skull base, but the radiologist needs to be aware of their appearance so that they can be considered in the differential diagnosis of suspected tumor recurrence.

  • [Title] Integral dose to the carotid artery in intensity modulated radiotherapy of carcinoma nasopharynx: extended field IMRT versus split-field IMRT.
  • AIM: To evaluate the integral dose to carotid vessels in extended field intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) (including the lower neck nodes in IMRT field) and split field IMRT (using separate single anterior field to treat lower neck nodes) in cancer nasopharynx.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Dosimetric data from 10 patients of carcinoma nasopharynx, undergoing IMRT, were evaluated in this prospective study.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Extended field IMRT delivers a slightly lower integral dose to carotid arteries in treatment of cancer nasopharynx while maintaining good dose homogeneity to the PTV 54 Gy and can be preferred over split field radiotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A limited immunohistochemical panel helps differentiate small cell epithelial malignancies of the sinonasal cavity and nasopharynx.
  • BACKGROUND: Distinguishing small cell epithelial malignancies of the sinonasal cavity and nasopharynx is difficult due to overlapping morphologic characteristics, particularly in small biopsies.
  • DESIGN: We reviewed 37 cases of histologically similar small cell epithelial malignancies of the sinonasal cavity and nasopharynx: nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) (16), basaloid squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) (15), and high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma (HGNEC) (6) obtained at Jackson Memorial Hospital/UM Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center between 2003 and 2007.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A limited immunohistochemical panel of CK, CK5/6, p63, and HLA-DR is useful in discriminating nasopharyngeal, basaloid squamous cell, and high-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas of the sinonasal cavity and nasopharynx.
