Abstract

Laryngeal cysts are rare in adults; therefore, the majority of previous reports deal primarily with laryngeal cysts in infants and children. Ductal cysts of the larynx arise from the submucous glands when the ducts of these glands are occluded. They are most commonly located in the vallecula. In this report, we present a rare cause of life-threatening stridor in adults, a large ductal cyst of the larynx that was removed via endoscopic CO2 laser resection. On the basis of clinical observations during the postoperative period, we conclude that endoscopic CO2 laser resection is a reliable and safe method for removing cysts of the larynx. It is also a cost-effective procedure that minimizes hospitalization time and the need for tracheotomy.

Dentigerous cyst of the maxilla with impacted tooth displaced into orbital rim and floor

Abstract

We report a case of dentigerous cyst of the maxilla and maxillary sinus that caused the ectopic displacement of an unerupted tooth into the orbital rim and floor. After an incisional biopsy, marsupialization of the lesion promoted its involution and stimulated osteogenesis. This in turn simplified the surgical enucleation of the specimen and removal of the unerupted tooth without the excessive loss of the bony contours of the maxilla.

Abstract
Arachnoid cysts are benign intracranial lesions that are typically diagnosed incidentally. We describe the case of a 56-year-old man who presented with a multiloculated arachnoid cyst of the middle cranial fossa that extended into the sphenoid sinus. The lesion was identified on computed tomography of the head, which had been obtained for an unrelated investigation. However, establishing a definitive diagnosis proved to be difficult. Because the cyst had caused extensive skull base erosion, the patient was managed conservatively with close observation. We report the radiographic progression of this lesion during more than a decade of follow-up, and we review the literature pertaining to the presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of arachnoid cysts.
