Angiofibromas are histologically benign, but unencapsulated and highly vascular tumors with a potential of local destructive effect. Angiofibromas predominantly originate from the posterolateral wall of the nasopharynx. Extranasopharyngeal angiofibromas are extremely rare and mostly seen in maxillary sinus and ethmoid sinus. In this article, we report a(More)

Alprazolam, a widely used drug, has widespread, nonspecific depressant effects on the central nervous system, similar to other benzodiazepines. This inhibitor effect may cause changes in reflex thresholds by affecting the acoustic stapedial reflex (ASR) arc. This study was performed on 31 healthy volunteers. Initially, the basal ASR thresholds were measured(More)
Inverted papilloma is a benign neoplasm characterized by its high rate of recurrence, local aggressiveness, and malignancy potential. Nasal obstruction is the most frequent presenting complaint. Bilateral inverted papillom involving both sides of the frontal sinus is extremely rare. Herein, we present a 64-year-old male case with a bilateral inverted(More)
