Otolaryngic manifestations of Cushing disease

August 24, 2017  |  Edward C. Kuan, MD, MBA; Kevin A. Peng, MD; Jeffrey D. Suh, MD; Marvin Bergsneider, MD; Marilene B. Wang, MD

Abstract

Cushing disease is a relatively rare cause of Cushing syndrome secondary to a hyperfunctioning pituitary adenoma. In addition to signs and symptoms of hypercortisolism, Cushing disease may present with diverse otolaryngic manifestations, which may guide diagnosis and management...

An incidental thyroid nodule

August 24, 2017  |  John P. Flynn, MD; Peter A. Morawiecki, MD; Marco A. Ayala, MD

Preoperative diagnosis of intrathyroidal parathyroid adenomas is essential to determining correct surgical management

Synchronous lesions of the right accessory parotid gland and left main parotid gland

June 20, 2017  |  Ba D. Nguyen, MD

Tumoral involvement of parotid glands is usually solitary; multifocality is rare

Parathyroid carcinoma in a patient with three prior parathyroid adenomas

June 20, 2017  |  Michael Goldenberg, MA; Henry Crist, MD; Darrin V. Bann, MD, PhD

Fine-needle aspiration is contraindicated because of its inability to distinguish parathyroid carcinoma from benign disease and the risk of seeding tumor along the biopsy tract.

Spontaneous bleeding from a thyroid adenoma

July 18, 2016  |  Tsung-Jung Liang, MD; Shiuh-Inn Liu, MD, PhD

Massive thyroid hemorrhage with airway obstruction warrants urgent management, and the importance of definite airway establishment for ventilation and oxygenation cannot be overemphasized.

Methylene blue and parathyroid adenoma localization: Three new cases of a rare cutaneous complication

February 24, 2016  |  Elliot D. Lieberman, MD; Rakhi Thambi, MD; Kristen B. Pytynia, MD, MPH

Abstract

Methylene blue has been safely used for the localization of parathyroid glands during parathyroidectomy, and only a few adverse effects have been documented. Methylene blue administration as a cause of pulse-oximetry-related skin injury is extremely rare. We describe 2 such...

Pleomorphic adenoma of the frontal sinus masquerading as a mucocele

December 14, 2015  |  Yok Kuan Chew, MBBS; Sushil Brito-Mutunayagam, MS; Aun Wee Chong, MS; Narayanan Prepageran, FRCS; Patricia Ann Chandran, MPath; Baharudin Khairuzzana, MS; Omkara Rubini Lingham, MS

Abstract

Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common type of benign salivary gland tumor. It can also be found in the larynx, ear, neck, and nasal septum. It is rarely found in the maxillary sinus, and it has never been reported in the frontal sinus. We report a case of pleomorphic adenoma...

Soft palate mass

October 31, 2015  |  Evan Longfield, MD; Matthew W. Stark, MD; Anita Jeyakumar, MD, FACS

Although pleomorphic adenomas are mostly benign, they have the potential to grow very large yet remain asymptomatic.

Endoscopic transnasal transsphenoidal transtuberculum sellae extradural approach to suprasellar pituitary lesions: A case report

September 21, 2015  |  Tapan Nagpal, MS

Abstract

Pituitary adenomas are benign tumors that arise within the anterior lobe (the adenohypophysis) of the pituitary gland in the sella turcica. As they grow, they can extend through the pituitary stalk and into the suprasellar compartment. The surgical management of these adenomas...

A rare case of pleomorphic adenoma of the nasal septum

June 5, 2015  |  Tejinder Singh Anand, MS, PhD; Gautam Bir Singh, MS; Sunil Garg, MS; Garima Yadav, MBBS; Anita Nangia, MD

Pleomorphic adenomas of the nasal cavity differ from those found elsewhere in that they have more myoepithelial cells and little or no stromal component.

Parathyroid localization using 4D-computed tomography

April 28, 2015  |  Darrin V. Bann, PhD; Thomas Zacharia, MD; David Goldenberg, MD, FACS; Neerav Goyal, MD, MPH

To decrease the risk of iatrogenic cancers associated with 4D-CT, several groups have used one- or two-phase imaging protocols to identify parathyroid adenomas.

A transoral surgical approach to a parapharyngeal-space pleomorphic adenoma

October 18, 2014  |  Christopher Schutt, MD; Joehassin Cordero, MD, FACS

Abstract

It is relatively difficult to gain surgical access to pleomorphic adenomas of the parapharyngeal space. Since the lateral border is the mandible, gaining access to them can put several important neurovascular structures at risk. A number of surgical approaches have been...
