Abstract

Otolaryngologists are called upon to evaluate and treat sinonasal masses discovered incidentally on imaging studies. Although common conditions such as sinonasal polyps and mucus retention cysts predominate, it is prudent practice to formulate a differential diagnosis to...

The division of the anterior from the posterior ethmoid cells is determined by the basal lamella of the middle turbinate.

Diplopia: An uncommon presentation of silent sinus syndrome

July 21, 2015  |  Juan Gomez, MD; David Liu, MD; Enrique Palacios, MD; Jeremy Nguyen, MD

The etiology of the disease is based on the primary predisposing factor, which is an obstruction of the ostiomeatal complex that results in hypoventilation of the maxillary sinus gases

Nasal myiasis: A case report

Th1 and Th2 cytokine gene expression in atopic and nonatopic patients with nasal polyposis

June 5, 2015  |  Mohammad Farhadi, MD; Mitra Barati, MPH; Azardokht Tabatabaii, MS; Mehdi Shekarabi, PhD; Samileh Noorbakhsh, MD; Shima Javadinia, MD

Abstract

The pathogenesis of nasal polyps has been debated for many years. The lymphocytes that infiltrate nasal polyps have been identified as predominantly memory T cells in an activated state, and these cells produce a mixed cytokine pattern of T1 helper (Th1) and T2 helper (Th2)...
