A case of primary chordoma of the maxillary sinus is presented. The embryology of the notochord is reviewed and it is suggested that the frequently used adjective "ectopic" is a misnomer. The literature of primary paranasal sinus chordomas is reviewed and the clinicopathological features described. It is emphasized that these lesions can mimic other benign(More)
Intramuscular myxoma of the head and neck is a rare lesion with only six cases documented in the literature. The tumor demonstrates a benign clinical course without a tendency to recur and is occasionally associated with fibrous dysplasia. It thus deserves to be considered in a separate class from other soft tissue myxomas. The seventh case of a head and(More)
A protocol was developed for the radiographic evaluation of the postmaxillectomy patient that called for a six- to eight-week postoperative, baseline computed tomography (CT) scan, followed by CT scans at four- to six-month intervals for at least three years. This protocol allowed for an early, more complete assessment of clinically discovered recurrences(More)
Only 4% of peripheral nerve sheath tumors of the head and neck occur in the paranasal sinuses. The most commonly involved sinus is the maxillary antrum and the most common histologic type is benign schwannoma. Two new cases of schwannoma occurring in the sphenoid and maxillary sinuses are reported. The clinical pathologic, and radiographic features of these(More)
We present the CT findings in two newborns with subcutaneous fat necrosis. This is an uncommon disease that occurs in neonates who have had difficult deliveries. The CT findings varied from discrete subcutaneous nodules to a diffuse subcutaneous fullness. Although the subcutaneous disease tends to spontaneously resolve within weeks to months, an associated(More)
Non-traumatic cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea is uncommon. Review of the literature revealed that 45% of cases are high pressure leaks and 55% of cases are normal pressure leaks. Meningoencephaloceles are very rare occurrences in the latter category and we present the third reported case occurring in the frontal sinus. Radiographically this lesion appeared(More)
The computed tomography (CT) appearance of mucoceles involving the ethmoid sinuses is presented. A classification based on the growth patterns of these mucoceles is proposed, and a differential diagnosis for each group is suggested. The unique CT appearance of the ethmoid polypoid--mucocele is described for the first time, and the radiographic definition of(More)
