The solid fibrous solitary tumour of the oral cavity is an extremely rare entity. It is also of complicated diagnosis because of its extensive morphologic diversity (especially when there is a small amount of biopsied tissue) and because of its similarity to many mesenchymal injuries, mostly with hemangiopericytoma. The prognosis is reserved because of the(More)
Lingual abscess is an extremely rare entity since the discovery of antibiotics, which, despite of its seriousness, it is usually a cause of death. We describe the case of a right hemilingual abscess, diagnosed by MRI scan because of its poor symptoms. This case is unique because of it affects the hemilingual central part and free edge. We discuss the most(More)
Presbycusis is characterised by a sensorineural hearing loss, mainly in high frequencies, symmetrical and progressive and poor understanding. Recuritment, typical in cochlear hearing loss, would be present in cases of sensorial presbycusis which runs mainly in cochlear pathologies. We analyse variables and their possible interrelations with recruitment in(More)
Retropharingeal abscess is a potentially lethal but infrequent infection of the retropharyngeal space, thanks to the use of antibiotics. Caused by a suppurative lymphadenitis secondary to a locoregional infection of the head and neck, it is the most frequent abscess in Paediatric age. It must be present in our differential diagnosis when facing a torpid(More)
Actinomycosis is a chronic suppurating granulomatous disorder specific to soft tissue. It is produced by Actinomyces Israelii, gram positive anaerobic bacteria that are very difficult to culture, and a commensal saprophyte of the oral cavity (tonsillar crypts, saliva and gingival dental sulci) and the gastro-intestinal tract; it becomes a pathogen in the(More)
Prader-Willi syndrome was described for the first time in 1956. Due to its lack of biological markers its diagnosis is a clinical one, taking into consideration that it varies with age. It is characterised by neonatal hypotonia, obesity, mild mental retardation or learning incapacity, behavioural problems, mainly towards food. Most aspects studied have been(More)
