A comparative clinical study was carried out that included 50 cases of otomycosis in immunocompetent patients and 50 cases of otomycosis in immunocompromised patients. Clinical presentation, predisposing factors, mycologic profile, and treatment outcomes were compared. Aspergillus spp were the most commonly isolated fungi in the immunocompetent group, and(More)
Tonsillitis is inflammation of tonsils, a common clinical condition often encountered in E.N.T. practice. The management of this condition is often empirical with the choice of antibiotics not based on any culture reports. The increasing incidence of resistance in many organisms is due to β-lactamase production and resistance transfer factors that leads to(More)
Cholesteatoma of the maxillary sinus is a rare condition, but it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any slowly expanding lesion of the maxillary sinus. Because the keratinizing squamous epithelium continues to desquamate and expand, thereby causing erosion of the surrounding structures, the cholesteatoma sac must be removed completely. We(More)
Thrombosis of the lateral sinus can be classified into nonseptic lateral sinus thrombosis and septic lateral sinus thrombosis. Nonseptic lateral sinus thrombosis differs from septic lateral sinus thrombosis in that it is not associated with ear or sinus infection. Etiologies of these conditions are different and hence the management of these conditions is(More)
Neurofibromas are benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors which originate from Schwann cells. They are known to occur in extremities as a local manifestation of Von Recklinghausen’s disease i.e. type 1 neurofibromatosis, but isolated neurofibroma occurring in the nasal cavity is a rare entity. Here we report one such case in a 60 year old lady who, presented(More)
UNLABELLED Kimura's disease is a rare form of chronic inflammatory disorder involving subcutaneous tissue, predominantly in the head and neck region and frequently associated with lymphadenopathy and/or salivary gland enlargement. The nodular lesions are deep seated in subcutaneous tissue and clinically may mimic a neoplasm. Hence head and neck surgeons(More)
The most common soft-tissue sarcoma in infants and children is rhabdomyosarcoma. The head and neck is the most common site of involvement; temporal bone involvement has been seen in about 7% of reported cases. Multimodality therapy--surgery, multiagent chemotherapy, and radiotherapy-yields sufficiently good results. The author reports a case of embryonal(More)
Otomycosis is a fungal infection of the external ear; middle ear and open mastoid cavity.1 Meyer first described the fungal infection of the external ear canal in 1884. External ear canal has an ideal warm humid environment for the proliferation of fungus.2 Although this disease is rarely life threatening, it can presents a challenging and frustrating(More)
Extracanalicular osteomas of the temporal bone are rare, slow-growing, benign neoplasms. Although they may occur anywhere in the temporal bone, they are most common in the mastoid area. Often, symptoms are negligible and treatment is unnecessary. However, surgical removal is indicated when growth of the osteoma causes distressing symptoms or cosmetic(More)
Nonseptic lateral sinus thrombosis differs from septic lateral sinus thrombosis in that it is not associated with ear or sinus infection. Mastoid changes are frequently detected on computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging in cases of nonseptic lateral sinus thrombosis. An otolaryngologic evaluation is usually required to exclude coexisting(More)
