The aim of this study is to compare the inlay butterfly transcanal cartilage tympanoplasty with the conventional underlay tympanoplasty. Operation time, pre- and postoperative hearing levels, successful closure rate of tympanic membrane (take rate) and long-term re-perforation in dry perforated chronic otitis media were evaluated. The study design consists… (More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae carriage is a risk factor for the development of respiratory system infections and the spread of penicillin-resistant strains. The aim of this study was to investigate nasopharyngeal carriage of S. pneumoniae in healthy children and resistance to penicillin and other antimicrobials and to assess related risk factors. Nasopharyngeal… (More)
Priapism is a pathological condition of a penile erection that persists beyond or is unrelated to sexual stimulation. Priapism is broadly classified into two types: (i) ischaemic priapism (veno-occlusive) (low-flow), (ii) nonischaemic priapism (arterial) (high-flow). We report the case of a newborn presenting with priapism on the first day of life and also… (More)
Cartilage is one of the most preferable grafts for tympanoplasty (TPL). The anatomical and audiological results and take rates of perichondrium attached cartilage island graft in tympanoplasty (PACIT) are presented herein. One hundred ninety four ears of 191 patients (108 male, 83 female) were evaluated retrospectively in terms of the type of surgery, graft… (More)
Primary lymphoma of the paranasal sinuses is a rare entity. Most cases are reported to occur in the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses as well as the nasal cavity. Primary involvement of the frontal sinus is very rare. We report a 68-year-old man with a diagnosis of B-cell lymphoma (non-Hodgkin lymphoma) originating from his frontal sinus.

During development of the middle ear mucosa, stratified squamous epithelium accumulates in the embryonic life. Its typical appearance is a "pearl" beneath the anterosuperior quadrant of the tympanic membrane. … (More)
