OBJECTIVES Neurilemmomas are benign tumors deriving from Schwann cells of the nerve sheath. They occur in all parts of the body. The highest incidence of neurilemmoma is in the head and neck region (38-45%), but involvement of the nose and paranasal sinus is quite rare, with only sporadic cases having been reported in the world literature. Fewer than 4% of(More)
Giant osteomas of the ethmoid and frontal sinuses ary very rare, with only a few dozen cases reported in the literature. Given their rarity, the clinical characteristics and treatment of this disease remain controversial. In this study, the clinical presentation and surgical methods used to treat three patients with giant osteomas of the ethmoid and frontal(More)
BACKGROUND The overexpression of angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) has both pro-tumorigenic and anti-tumorigenic effects. However, the mechanisms of this protein's dual effects are poorly understood, and it remains unclear how Ang-2 cooperates with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). In the current study, we investigated the effects of Ang-2 overexpression on(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the serum eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) levels in patients with allergic rhinitis (AR) or chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps(CRSWP), and its relations with allergic symptoms in patients with AR. METHODS The ECP in serum and Phadiatop tests were detected by UniCAP100 system. Blood sample was taken from 87 patients with inhaled(More)
OBJECTIVES Ceruminous adenoma of the external auditory canal (EAC) is a rare type of tumour that is diagnosed histologically. However, the clinical behaviour of these tumours remains controversial. Here, we report a case of ceruminous adenoma of the EAC and expression of a hypoxia marker. CASE REPORT A 78-year-old man presented with a 6-month history of(More)
For recent years the passive time reversal process is one of the hotspots research in underwater communications. It has the property of space-time focusing, which has been used in single carrier time domain equalization (SC-TDE) system. Single carrier block transmission adopting frequency domain equalization processing, which has the advantages of low(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated inverting papilloma (IP) of the sphenoid sinus is rare, with about 50 patients reported in the English-language literature. With its rarity, scientists have paid less attention to the clinical and radiographic characteristics of isolated IPs arising from the sphenoid sinus. METHODS We describe the clinical presentation, imaging(More)
