INTRODUCTION Granulation tissue formation is a major problem complicating the treatment of upper airway stenosis. We present two cases of recurrent tracheal granulation tissue colonisation by Penicillium species in patients undergoing laryngotracheal reconstructive surgery for post-intubation tracheal stenosis. We believe that although most Penicillium(More)

Laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS) is a rare condition that occurs most commonly as a result of instrumentation of the airway but may also occur as a result of inflammatory conditions or idiopathically. Here, we present the case of a patient who developed LTS as a complication of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), which was misdiagnosed as asthma for 6(More)
We describe a rare event of acute biphenotypic leukemic (BAL) transformation of a patient with essential thrombocythemia (ET) being treated with hydroxyurea (HU). Our patient was a 78-year-old African-American female who was diagnosed with ET in 1996. Her platelet count was 1500 · 10 9 /l and bone marrow was diagnostic for ET. The same year she suffered a(More)
OBJECTIVE Determine feasibility of vocal fold (VF) abduction and adduction assessment by cine magnetic resonance imaging (cine-MRI) METHODS: Cine-MRI of the VF was performed on five healthy and nine unilateral VF paralysis (UVFP) participants using an axial gradient echo acquisition with temporal resolution of 0.7 s. VFs were continuously imaged with(More)
Fibrohistiocytomas of the trachea are rare tumours of the trachea. It may be difficult on hist-ology to distinguish benign and malignant disease and expert opinion is required. These tumours can be successfully excised through inter-ventional rigid bronchoscopy. A 54-year-old Caucasian male was referred with haemoptysis. There was no associated dyspnoea,(More)
About 40% of the population will experience chronic cough at some point during their lives and it tends to be more common in women (Thorax 58:901-7, 2003). Post-nasal drip (or upper airway cough syndrome), gastro-esophageal reflux disease and asthma are considered the most common causes. Yet only a small percentage of patients with these common conditions(More)
