Rosai-Dorfman disease is a rarely seen disease with unknown etiology. Extranodal involvement is most commonly seen in the head and neck region. Histopathologically, it is characterized by histiocytic cell proliferation. This paper presents a case of a 15-year-old male patient who presented with nasal obstruction and was surgically treated for a mass filling(More)

Vallekuler kistler genellikle minör tükrük bezlerinin retansiyon kistidir. En sık meydana geldiği bölge epiglotun lingual yüzeyidir. Epiglottik mukus retansiyonları, aynı zamanda dil taban kistleri veya vallekuler kistler olarak bilinirler. Küçük vallekuler kistler asemptomatiktir. Bu vakalar çok farklı semptomlarla gelebilirler.

BACKGROUND This study investigated genetic polymorphisms affecting the inducible nitric oxide synthase, superoxide dismutase and catalase enzymes in chronic otitis media patients with and without tympanosclerosis, and the role of genetic susceptibility in the disease aetiology. METHODS A total of 162 patients who underwent surgery for chronic otitis media(More)
Giant cell tumor is a primary bone tumor that usually originates from the epiphysis of the long bones and is rarely seen in the cranial region. Most frequently, the tumor develops in the sphenoid and temporal bones in the middle cranial fossa. Giant cell tumor generally shows diversity with respect to benignity, local invasiveness, and histology. Although(More)

South European cases with autosomal recessive inherited hearing loss (4,8). The frequent incidence of the 35delG mutation requires analyzing both affected individuals and parents (in terms of being carriers) for genetic counseling. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of GJB2 gene mutations in patients with congenital NSSNHL and to(More)
Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the paranasal sinuses, and its pathophysiology is not yet precisely known. It is suggested that oxygen free radicals play an important role in the pathogenesis of nasal polyposis. This study aimed to identify genetic polymorphisms of superoxide dismutase (SOD 2), catalase(More)
