Abstract
Spontaneous retropharyngeal hemorrhage from a cervical parathyroid adenoma is a rare complication of primary hyperparathyroidism. Because of its rarity, it has seldom been documented in the radiologic or ENT literature. Patients may present with a variety of manifestations, ranging from dysphagia to dysphonia to life-threatening dyspnea or hemorrhage. Awareness of a possible thyroid or parathyroid etiology may expedite treatment and prevent unnecessary interventions. We present a case of spontaneous retropharyngeal hemorrhage in which the "sentinel clot" sign enabled us to identify the lesion of origin.

Abstract
Evidence is accumulating that herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection is implicated in oncogenesis. HSV antigens have been observed in some oral cancers. We present the case of a 62-year-old man who presented with dysphagia, odyno-phagia, and dysphonia and who was found on computed tomography (CT) to have a mass in his piriform sinus. We suspected a malignancy, but histopathology of biopsy specimens revealed that the mass exhibited the classic signs of the HSV cytopathic effect, including the presence of intranuclear inclusion bodies, ballooning degeneration of epithelial cells, and a ground-glass appearance of some nuclei. The patient responded well to antiviral therapy, and posttherapy CT revealed that the mass had resolved completely. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature of a case of HSV infection presenting as a piriform sinus mass.
