Alveolar soft-part sarcoma is a rare malignant tumour of uncertain histogenesis, the two main sites of which are the lower extremities in adults and the head and neck in children. We know of only three case reports of intraoral locations without tongue involvement. Here, we describe the first case of an alveolar soft-part sarcoma of the cheek which(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)
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)
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)
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)
Anatomical and functional results were evaluated at 3 and 5 years after surgery for chronic cholesteatomatous otitis media in 94 patients treated by the same surgeon between 1975 and 1983. Open techniques predominated and were justified by seven clinical or epidemiologic factors present alone or in association in 80% of cases. Many patients were(More)
Major tissue loss involving the ears and periauricular area due to carcinologic exeresis is an important problem in reconstructive surgery. We present the "béret" flap, a frontal flap with an occipital pedicle, emphasizing the simplicity of the procedure and its reliability. We present our personal experience and data in the literature and recall the main(More)
On the basis of 6 cases, the authors review the clinical, histological and therapeutic aspects of olfactory esthesioneuromas. These rare tumours, showing varying rates and degrees of progression from one patient to another, generally have a severe prognosis. Diagnosis is based upon precise histological criteria which may be clarified by electromicroscopic(More)
Authors report two cases of 31 and 42 year old women who for many years had a unilateral nasal obstruction: first case due to a large polyp, second one due to a mucosal inflammation but both caused by a rhinolithiasis. The latter is formed over several years around a vegetable seed or a piece of material neglected since childhood. The rhinolithiasis is a(More)
