Tumours affecting the nose, paranasal sinuses and adjacent skull base are fortunately rare. However, they pose significant problems of management due their late presentation and juxtaposition to important anatomical structures such eye and brain. The increasing application of endonasal endoscopic techniques to their excision offers potentially similar(More)
BACKGROUND Behavioural studies have highlighted irregularities in recognition of facial affect in children and young people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Recent findings from studies utilising electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) have identified abnormal activation and irregular maintenance of gamma (>30 Hz) range(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Reference textbooks on the intracranial complications of rhinosinusitis imply that many of the intracranial complications of rhinosinusitis can be prevented. We sought to examine whether or not this is true. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective case series. METHODS The study included 47 consecutive patients presenting with intracranial(More)
INTRODUCTION Inverted papillomas are relatively rare, benign epithelial tumours of the nasal cavity which generate considerable interest because they are locally aggressive, have a tendency to recur and are associated with malignancy. AIMS To review our experience of the management of inverted papillomas, and to review the literature in order to evaluate(More)
Esthesioneuroblastoma is an uncommon malignant neoplasm of the nasal vault that in the past was considered benign or low-grade malignant. Surgical approaches in the main were transnasal, with a high recurrence rate and ultimate patient death. With the modern imaging of CT and MRI, should the patient be willing and fit enough, esthesioneuroblastoma currently(More)
This guidance for the management of patients with allergic and non-allergic rhinitis has been prepared by the Standards of Care Committee (SOCC) of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI). The guideline is based on evidence as well as on expert opinion and is for use by both adult physicians and paediatricians practicing in allergy.(More)
This guidance for the management of patients with rhinosinusitis and nasal polyposis has been prepared by the Standards of Care Committee (SOCC) of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI). The recommendations are based on evidence and expert opinion and are evidence graded. These guidelines are for the benefit of both adult(More)
OBJECTIVES A review of the presenting features, management, and outcome of extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the sinonasal tract during a 10-year period in Nottingham, UK. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-four patients received a diagnosis of extranodal NHL of the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, or both, from 1987 to 1996. The patients' data were collected(More)
The paranasal sinuses and nose are much more than two cavities behind a projection on the centre of the face. They humidify, filter, warm, and sense what we breathe. The anatomy and physiology interact forming a dynamic system. The anatomy, airflow, nasal resistance, its turbulence, the nasal cycle - a process by which the turbinates or cushions lining the(More)
The mannose receptor (MR) is a C-type lectin expressed by dendritic cells (DCs). We have investigated the ability of MR to recognize glycosylated allergens. Using a gene silencing strategy, we have specifically inhibited the expression of MR on human monocyte-derived DCs. We show that MR mediates internalization of diverse allergens from mite (Der p 1 and(More)
