Verrucous carcinoma of the paranasal sinuses: A case report

June 30, 2010     Frederick L. Durden Jr., MD, Charles E. Moore, MD, and Susan Muller, DMD, MS
article

Abstract

Verrucous carcinoma is a low-grade variant of squamous cell carcinoma reported to occur in all anatomic sites in the head and neck region, most commonly the oral cavity. The tumor grows locally invasive but is histologically benign and metastasizes rarely. To date, 22 cases of verrucous carcinoma involving the nasal cavity and/or the paranasal sinuses have been reported. We present a case of verrucous carcinoma involving the paranasal sinuses, nasal cavity, cranium, and orbit. This case highlights the difficulty of pathologic diagnosis and management options for a rare neoplastic lesion.

Abstract

Ecthyma gangrenosum is a rare necrotizing cutaneous infection usually caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We report a case of ecthyma gangrenosum presenting as a sinonasal eschar and mimicking acute invasive fungal sinusitis in an immunocompromised 39-year-old man with a hematologic malignancy. To the best of our knowledge, this represents the first case of ecthyma gangrenosum affecting the sinonasal mucosa to be reported in the literature.

One-year results: Transantral balloon dilation of the ethmoid infundibulum

article

Abstract

A prospective, multicenter research study is under way to demonstrate long-term improvement in chronic rhinosinusitis symptoms after transantral balloon dilation of the ethmoid infundibulum. Trial results from an interim analysis of symptomatic status using the Sino-Nasal Outcome Test 20 survey demonstrate significant and sustained improvement through post-procedure 1-year follow-up. Additionally, these data provide evidence that the symptomatic improvements following balloon expansion within the ostiomeatal unit to treat medically refractory inflammation of the maxillary sinuses, either alone or with concomitant anterior ethmoid disease, are similar.

Prostatic carcinoma metastatic to the paranasal sinuses: A case report

August 31, 2008     Borlingegowda Viswanatha, MS, DLO
article

Abstract

In the paranasal sinuses, metastatic carcinoma is far less common than primary carcinoma. Metastasis of prostate cancer to the paranasal sinuses is very rare. The author describes a case of prostatic adenocarcinoma that metastasized to the frontal and ethmoid sinuses in a 68-year-old man. The patient was treated with radiotherapy but was lost to follow-up after 3 months.
