We describe a typical case of eosinophilic ulcer of the oral mucosa (EUOM) after an adverse reaction to carbamazepine, in a manic-depressive patient. This case may be suggestive of other etiologic factors for the EUOM, different to traumas.
A histochemistry study by means of lectins of vomeronasal organ or Jacobson's organ was performed in 5 Wistar rats. Vomeronasal organ is localized at the antero-inferior level of the septum and present two kinds of epithelium, an olfactory one and other respiratory, on the medial and on the lateral part, respectively. Olfactory epithelium shows a great… (More)
A histochemical study with lectins of the olfactory epithelium of 5 Wistar rats was performed. This neuro-epithelium cover the postero-superior part of the nasal cavity and the medial part of the vomeronasal organon. There are numerous Bowman's glands in the olfactory epithelium, besides the sensory cells. These glandulae dye as well with PAS.AB, the same… (More)
We present a case of cavernous laryngeal hemangioma in an elderly lady. The limited surface of the lesion and its location and implantation basis as well allowed an endolaryngeal surgery.
The laryngectomees offer a good model for investigating the effect of absence of nasal ventilation in humans. Two samples has been studied: one composed for 24 laryngectomees, the other one for 54 healthy men. The clearance mucociliar time, using the charcoal power method in both specimen, and a structural and ultrastructural morphological survey in 5… (More)
Clinical study referred to the nasal mucociliary transport of 132 healthy people, by means of the charcoal powder method. Intranasal clearance direction of the marker, the degree of the test's reproductiveness and the influence on the clearance of certain variables are considered. With this procedure the study of the nasociliary transportation time become… (More)
We report two cases of major complications in therapeutic embolization of juvenile angiofibromas. We discuss no permanent and major complications of this procedure. A brief review of this illness is also presented.
We describe the modification in one of the passages of the technique of subtotal laryngectomy with epiglottoplasty, consisting of the opening of larynx through the thyroid membrane. This maneuver improves the visualization of the tumor facilitating the time of its removal and later reconstruction.
A comparative study was made of endonasal dacryorhinostomy using either a 0 degree or 30 degrees rigid endoscope or a Zeiss operating microscope in 25 patients with chronic epiphora and complete stenosis of the nasolacrimal duct confirmed by dacryocystography. The success rate in both groups was similar (80%). Computed tomography is useful in post-traumatic… (More)
Glycoproteins and glycolipids play an important role in cellular biological specificity. The use of lectins as histochemical probes may be useful in studying the nasal mucosa. Eosinophils are a common finding in the nasal mucosa of patients with nasal polyposis. Histocytochemistry of eosinophils in the nasal mucosa of such patients revealed reactivity to… (More)
