  • PATIENTS: Eleven cases of eustachian tube involvement as indicated by obstruction due to compression of the tumor were assessed in this study.
  • RESULTS: All of the tumors were diagnosed benign according to the histologic examination.
  • In 9 of the 11 patients, the pharyngeal opening of the eustachian tube narrowed or was blocked by the tumor.
  • None of the patients showed any response on the tumor side in the sonotubometry.
  • Therefore, gas exchange was prevented through the eustachian tube by the tumor; however, they also showed an intact tympanic membrane and normal hearing tests.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Craniopharyngiomas are benign tumors that originate from squamous cell rests of the embryonal hypophyseal-pharyngeal duct located along the pituitary stalk.
  • After their surgical resection, recurrence usually occurs in the region of the original tumor bed.
  • Her magnetic resonance imaging scan revealed a tumor in the prepontine cistern.
  • INTERVENTION: The first patient underwent operation via a petrosal approach with subtotal resection of the tumor and decompression of the brainstem; this patient had an uneventful postoperative course.
  • The tumor in the second patient was surgically resected through a pterional craniotomy, with an uneventful postoperative course.
  • The third patient's right-sided cerebellopontine angle lesion was microsurgically resected, and the patient was given a single-dose gamma knife for the left-side and residual small right-side tumor.
  • The histological diagnosis of all 3 lesions was craniopharyngioma.
  • CONCLUSION: Although ectopic recurrence of a craniopharyngioma is very rare, it should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of what appears to be a new tumor in a patient with a history of previously resected craniopharyngiomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • However, many patients have trismus or pharyngeal stenosis following treatment, both of which prevent rigid/flexible transoral laryngoscopy/esophagoscopy evaluating the entire upper digestive tract.
  • Except three patients with very narrow space or the presence of the tumor in the neopharynx, transnasal EGD could completely evaluate the upper digestive tract in 33 patients and found one patient with local recurrent hypopharyngeal cancer, seven patients with newly diagnosed hypopharyngeal cancer, four patients with esophageal cancer, and one patient with simultaneous hypopharyngeal and esophageal cancers, which were all successfully biopsied and proven microscopically.
  • One patient had a benign tumor on the epiglottis and the other NPC patient had extensive soft tissue necrosis in the pyriform sinus as a cause of dysphagia.
  • The present study indicates that unsedated transnasal EGD is feasible to confidently distinguish between functionally/anatomically-related dysphagia and newly growing tumors in the upper digestive tract, and to obtain biopsy specimens for pathological diagnosis from the tumors in a single session.

  • [Title] Unique expression pattern of the EMT markers Snail, Twist and E-cadherin in benign and malignant parathyroid neoplasia.
  • BACKGROUND: Epithelial and mesenchymal transitions (EMT) are essential for embryonic development and progression of non-invasive tumor cells into malignant, metastatic carcinomas.
  • During embryogenesis, the parathyroid glands develop from pharyngeal pouches and migrate to their final destinations, densely enclosed by mesenchymal neural crest cells.
  • In this study, we examined the expression of the EMT markers Snail, Twist and E-cadherin in normal parathyroid glands and benign and malignant parathyroid diseases.
  • METHODS: Using immunohistochemistry, we compared expression of E-cadherin, Snail and Twist in 25 patients with parathyroid adenoma, 25 patients with parathyroid hyperplasia, and nine patients with parathyroid cancer with normal parathyroid glands.
  • CONCLUSION: Expression of Snail and Twist at the invasive front and consecutive loss of E-cadherin in parathyroid carcinomas suggests a key role of EMT in the tumorigenesis of this cancer.
  • The unique expression pattern could help to distinguish between an adenoma and a non-metastatic carcinoma.
  • Loss of E-cadherin and change of the expression pattern of Snail and Twist together should result in an en bloc resection or a close follow-up.

  • BACKGROUND: Neurilemmoma are benign tumors of the nerve-sheath, also known as schwannoma.
  • The histological examination showed two types of Antoni-A-neurilemmoma, whereas one tumor was found with mixed type A and B-neurilemmoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Although extracranial neurilemmoma of retropharygeal space, neck or supraglottic larynx are rare tumors, neurilemmoma should be involved in differential diagnosis of tumors in these areas.

  • Cowden's disease is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the development of multiple mucocutaneous lesions and benign tumors, and enhanced cancer predisposition.
  • Most Cowden's disease patients harbor inactivating mutations in the PTEN tumor suppressor gene which encodes a lipid phosphatase, PTEN, which restrains the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-Akt signaling pathway.
  • We observed that the epithelial-specific deletion of Pten in mice causes multiple hyperproliferative and tumor lesions that strikingly resemble Cowden's disease.
  • These findings suggest that mTOR inhibition with rapamycin may represent a suitable therapeutic option for the chemoprevention and treatment of Cowden disease patients and others tumor syndromes that involve defective PTEN function.

  • The goal of parapharyngeal space (PPS) tumor surgery is to obtain adequate visualization to ensure complete removal with preservation of the surrounding nerves and vessels.
  • Transoral approach is the most controversial one due to cited limited exposure, risk of tumor spillage, and possibility of neurovascular injury.
  • Mean tumor size was 6.1 cm (range 2-11 cm).
  • Risk of non-radical resection is acceptable.
  • It can be combined with external approach to achieve safe resection of some benign tumors which would need transmandibular approach.

  • [Title] Pharyngeal retention cysts: radiographic findings in seven patients.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to better characterize the radiographic features of pharyngeal retention cysts on double-contrast pharyngograms.
  • CONCLUSION: Pharyngeal retention cysts typically involve the valleculae, appearing on double-contrast pharyngograms as small, round or ovoid, well-circumscribed, smooth-surfaced submucosal masses that are best visualized on frontal views of the pharynx.
  • Such features should be highly suggestive of benign retention cysts, obviating further diagnostic workup in asymptomatic patients.
  • When the cysts are lobulated or completely obliterate the valleculae, however, further evaluation by otolaryngologic examination may be required to rule out malignant tumor in the pharynx.

  • OBJECTIVES: Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a rare benign tumor that affects young male patients and shows a characteristic development from its origin.
  • It is not a true neoplasm, but shows features of vascular processes, developing into a more fibrous condition.
  • The aim of this study was to correlate the clinical manifestations and the histologic findings of the tumor.
  • We correlated the incidence and duration of the clinical manifestations (nasal obstruction, epistaxis, nasal and/or pharyngeal tumor, and facial deformity) and morphometric histologic analyses of the central region of the tumor (number, caliber, and presence of muscle cells in the vessel wall, and tissue maturity and cellularity).
  • RESULTS: The duration of nasal obstruction, the presence of nasal and/or pharyngeal tumor, and facial deformity were significantly correlated with the number of vessels, the tissue maturation, and the cellularity of the tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are correlations between the duration of the clinical manifestations and histologic maturation in the central portion of the tumor.

  • Most (70-80%) are benign and the most frequent origins are salivary and neurogenic.
  • The aim of this study is to present the surgical procedures used for the treatment of 13 patients with parapharyngeal space tumors; 11 of them were suffering from benign tumors (the most frequent being pleomorphic adenoma; 8 cases) and 2 from malignant lesions.
  • The type of surgical approach was dictated by the type of the lesion (malignant or benign), the exact location, the size, the vascularity and the relation of the tumor to the neck neurovascular bundle.
  • In all cases the selected surgical approach allowed the complete resection of the tumor, obtaining clear margins in cases of malignancy, without adding to the patient's preoperative morbidity.
  • It was concluded that the surgical approach to the parapharyngeal space tumors must be adjusted to the tumor characteristics and be as wide is necessary to achieve its complete removal with safety.

  • Tumours of the parapharyngeal space encompass a wide variety of benign or malignant neoplasms of different origins.
  • Arteriography was used only when CT or MRI suggested a glomous tumor, or possible involvement of the carotid artery, or when those tumours put the carotid artery at risk of surgical injury.
  • The results found from statistical evaluation revealed a higher significance of CT and MRI for tumor extension, localization and comprehension.
  • MRI was dominant for determining tumor character and facial nerve involvement.
  • When a parapharyngeal tumor is detected deep lobe parotid neoplasms are frequently to be expected.

  • [Title] [Castleman's disease in ear, nose, and throat practice].
  • Castleman's disease, also called angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia or benign giant lymphoma, is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology.
  • Due to the lack of tumor-specific clinical, biochemical, and radiological features, final diagnosis of Castleman's disease depends on histopathology.
  • Surgical tumor resection is the treatment of choice for localized disease.
  • Therefore, early invasive removal and histopathological differentiation from neoplasia is mandatory.
  • On admission, the patient complained of a painless pharyngeal tumor mass and ipsilateral lymph node swelling.
  • After tumor resection, histopathological examination, and clinical staging, localized Castleman's disease was diagnosed (hyaline vascular subtype).

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the parapharyngeal space.
  • Solitary fibrous tumors are benign neoplasms of mesenchymal origin.
  • We report a case of solitary fibrous tumor of the parapharyngeal space.
  • Microscopically, the tumor contained spindle cells with areas of marked hypercellularity without a definitepattern.
  • Consistent with a benign lesion, there were few mitoses and no necrosis.
  • The tumor cells stained strongly positive for CD34 and vimentin.

  • [Title] [Lump in the throat].
  • A sensation of a lump in the throat will often cause fear of tumor.
  • Underlying the symptom is only seldom a tumor, which is, however, malignant in about 97 to 99% of cases of hypopharyngeal occurrence.
  • We present a patient case relating to a rare benign tumor of the hypopharynx (giant fibrovascular polyp, GFP).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Eight patients with various neoplasms of the superomedial PPS were retrospectively reviewed for type of neoplasm, size, success with the transoral approach, need for conversion to another approach, length of hospitalization, and complications.
  • RESULTS: The transoral approach described herein safely allowed for en bloc resection of benign neoplasms with intraoperative control and exposure of the internal carotid artery.
  • Mean tumor size was 3.3 cm (range, 1.5 to 7 cm).
  • This technique is indicated for neoplasms with benign appearance on preoperative imaging or fine needle aspiration.
