Cystic lymphatic malformations (CLM) are superficial vascular hemodynamically inactive malformations of the lymphatic compartment. We propose a new approach which uses a sclerosing agent as an alternative to surgical resection. In the past nine years we treated 70 patients with CLM. Fifty-five percent were younger than five years of age with a male(More)
In a prospective study, we evaluated the efficacy of extracorporeal lithotripsy (ECL) in the treatment of salivary stones. We define the indications for the treatment of submaxillary and parotid stones, depending on the diameter and the location of the stone. Twenty-seven patients were treated by ECL. All had a unique stone, in the salivary duct, with a(More)
BACKGROUND The severity of cicatricial pemphigoid (CP) varies. First-intent treatment of mild or moderate cases is dapsone. In life or sight-threatening cases, intravenous cyclophosphamide pulses are efficient but may have digestive side effects and imply repeated hospitalizations. Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is an oral and well tolerated immunosuppressant(More)
Superficial vascular malformations of the face, trunk and limbs are better known today, and they can be divided up into simple and complex vascular malformations. Simple vascular malformations may form five major categories: immature hemangiomas of infants, port-wine stains, capillarovenous angiodysplasias, and arteriovenous fistulae and malformations.(More)
The temporal branches of the facial nerve, and in particular the rami for the frontalis muscle, have been the subject of many studies with the main objective of avoiding injury. The usual reference points, sometimes difficult to localise, anatomical variations in their branching and anastomoses are the main points of our investigation. This anatomical(More)
From January 1988 to July 1992, 68 patients presenting with a locally advanced and unresectable carcinoma of the head and neck region were given 3 to 5 courses of chemotherapy (5-FU 1 g/m2, day 1 to 3, cisplatin 4 mg/m2, day 1 and 2, 15 mg/m2 day 8) combined with simultaneous radiotherapy. Patients were enrolled in two protocols. In the initial one a 70 Gy(More)
The leiomyosarcoma, a malignant smooth muscle tumor, is common in uterus and gastro intestinal track. Only 27 cases of oral cavity localisation have been report in literature since 1908. We report a case of primary leiomyosarcoma of palate in 26 years old woman. The diagnosis is made by histopathological examination after biopsy. The extension is revealed(More)
Anatomic and functional results are reported after 3 and 5 year follow up of 94 cases of chronic cholesteatomatous otitis operated upon and kept under surveillance by the same surgeon between 1975 and 1983. Open technics dominated and were justified by seven clinical and epidemiologic factors found alone or in combination in 80% of patients. Results must(More)
