BACKGROUND World literature suggests parapharyngeal space lesions account for only 0.5% head and neck tumours and the majority of the minor salivary gland tumours are malignant. The parapharyngeal space is very rare site for this tumour. CASE PRESENTATION Two cases of primary pleomorphic adenomas arising de novo from minor salivary glands in the para(More)
Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF) is an uncommon, benign, bone-forming neoplasm seen in the craniofacial bones. It is distinguished from other fibro-osseous lesions primarily by its age at onset, clinical presentation, and potential aggressive behavior. Occasionally JOF may grow aggressively and extend to involve the orbits and skull base, resulting in(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To study and compare the outcome of trans-oral CO2 laser microsurgery for early glottic squamous cell cancer with and without the involvement of anterior commissure (AC). STUDY DESIGN This is a retrospective analysis of 296 cases of early glottic squamous cancer treated by trans-oral CO2 laser microsurgery. METHODS The patients(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The purpose of the study was to study the outcomes of per oral wide excision of early T1-2 N0 squamous cell cancer of buccal mucosa. METHODS This is a retrospective study of early and localized squamous cell cancer of the buccal mucosa treated with peroral wide excision at a tertiary-care hospital. RESULTS A total of 156 patients(More)
Clear cell myoepithelioma arising from the minor salivary glands of hard palate is a rare entity. Most of the cases of palatal myoepitheliomas reported so far are either plasmacytoid or spindle cell type. Our literature search revealed only one case report of clear cell myoepithelioma of the palate. We report a case in a 21-year-old female who presented to(More)
Papillary thyroid cancer favors lymphatic spread both within the thyroid gland and to the cervical lymph nodes. Hematogenous spread rarely occurs in the lung, bones and brain. We report a case where metastatic nodules from papillary thyroid cancer were seen in the right aryepiglottic fold (supraglottis) and lateral wall of hypopharynx, an extremely rare(More)
Synovial sarcoma (SS) of the arising head and neck region is rare. The most common site being the hypopharynx. No case of SS from the sublingual of 35-year old salivary gland has been reported. We report a case of monophasic SS in sublingual gland a female making it the first documented case of English Language literature.
Reconstruction of the lip defects following wide excision of the squamous cell cancer is challenging for the surgeon. Our aim was to define the role of the inferiorly based nasolabial flap for lip reconstruction in such cases with moderate to large size defects. Lip defects were reconstructed with a unilateral or bilateral subcutaneous nasolabial flaps(More)
Riedel's thyroiditis is a rare inflammatory process which not only involves thyroid gland but also the surrounding vital structures. It may also be associated with various forms of systemic fibrotic disorders. The exact etiology is not known, but currently most favored view is that of a localized form of systemic fibrotic process. We report a case of(More)
Unilateral phrenic nerve palsy as initial presentation of the retrosternal goitre is extremely rare event. This is a case report of a 57-year-old woman with history of cough and breathlessness of 3 months duration, unaware of the thyroid mass. She had large cervico-mediastinal goiter and chest radiograph revealed raised left sided hemidiaphragm. Chest CT(More)
