OBJECTIVE We report a rare case of a spindle cell lipoma with atypical clinical course. CASE REPORT A 51 year old female patient referred to our clinic with feeling of mass in the throat she had had for two years. The patient described difficulty in swallowing. Indirect laryngoscopy did not reveal any masses at bilateral pyriform sinuses, and the mucosa(More)
UNLABELLED Although there are several factors affecting the pathogenesis of chronic otitis, the pathological process has not been entirely defined yet. One of the theories suggested for the development of middle ear diseases is tubal dysfunction. The aim of the study is to analyze the function of the tensor veli palatini (TVP) muscle electromyographically(More)
We appreciate to receive these constructive and valuable comments regarding our article entitled ‘‘Is neutrophil– lymphocyte ratio associated with the severity of allergic rhinitis in children?’’ [1]. As mentioned by Wiwanitkit, it is more feasible to analyze the blood samples on the same analyzer [2]. However, the results were obtained on two separate(More)
OBJECTIVES Nasal obstruction caused by inferior turbinate hypertrophies is one of the most frequent problems in otolaryngology. Treatment of this disease may involve medical and surgical methods. Thermal ablation with radiofrequency energy has become quite popular in the recent years as one of the surgical methods used when medical therapy is not adequate.(More)
Neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) could be an important measure of systemic inflammation. There is a lack of knowledge about the neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio in rhinitis. We aimed to determine the relationship between the clinical parameters of allergic rhinitis and NLR in children. 438 children who were diagnosed with allergic rhinitis and followed up in(More)
Idiopathic rhinitis without eosinophilia is a group of frequently observed diseases, the aetiopathogenesis of which is not yet well known. One of the most disturbing symptoms for patients within this disease group is nasal hypersecretion. Although many different treatments have been tried for hypersecretion, nasal topical drugs form the basis of any such(More)
OBJECTIVES Adenoid hypertrophy (AH) may cause several comorbid conditions including sleep apnea, chronic serous otitis and sinusitis. Such conditions are more common among children with allergic diseases. In our study, we aimed to determine the patient profile associated with higher incidence of adenoid hypertrophy and the related influential factors. (More)
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a technique which causes a reduction in tissue amount using ablation by high-frequency current. Beside other surgical tools, RFA has become quite popular over the past decade. Hypertrophy of the inferior turbinate is a common cause of chronic nasal obstruction. There is no agreement on how to deal with this problem. An ideal(More)
In Marfan's syndrome, which is a connective tissue disorder of hereditary origin, collagenous tissue development and bone synthesis are generally altered in addition to the occurrence of many systemic deformities. External ear, stapes, and vestibular aqueduct pathologies are reported as some of the otological deformities. However, the malleus and incus(More)
OBJECTIVES Loss of taste function was studied pre- and postoperatively in patients who underwent myringoplasty. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-two patients who were diagnosed with chronic otitis media and underwent myringoplasty between May 2007 and May 2009 were included in the study. Regional taste test was performed preoperatively and two weeks after the(More)
