Actinomycosis of head and neck are secondary to a nidus in the oral cavity and the aero-digestive tract. Primary actinomycosis without such predisposition is mostly due to trauma. We are presenting a case of this rare variant involving the forehead. The patient had a swelling over the forehead after a windscreen injury, which was asymptomatic for 17 years.(More)

Levator veli palatini (LVP) is the “key” muscle for velar elevation and speech. All cleft palate repair procedures emphasize on the correction of abnormally positioned levator palatini muscle. We encountered a case of unilateral absence of LVP muscle while operating for cleft palate in a non-syndromic 12-year-old male child. The velar space was in turn(More)
Tissue expansion though a promising modality of reconstructive surgery is fraught with many complications. In addition to expander-related complications, subcutaneous port-related mishaps during tissue expansion, though infrequent, can result in procedure failures. We are reporting two patients with port-related complications. In one patient, there was(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Most of the clinical series on posttraumatic nail deformities (PTNDs) address an individual deformity and its correction. The aim of the study was to classify PTND on the basis of its anatomical defect, devise the reconstructive modality and propose an algorithmic approach to PTND. We have also analysed our results of surgical correction(More)
