BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The incidence of middle turbinate pneumatization, or concha bullosa, has been well described in the literature. However, to our knowledge, no study has evaluated concha bullosa in relation to nasal septal deviation. We sought to analyze the incidence of concha bullosa and any correlation with nasal septal deviation and paranasal sinus(More)
Localized amyloidosis is an uncommon benign disorder. The purpose of this report is to present the case of a 21-year-old man who had localized amyloidosis simultaneously involving the sinonasal cavities and the larynx. The rarer sinonasal lesion demonstrated CT findings of adjacent "fluffy" bone changes, possibly representing a new finding suggestive of(More)
A method has been developed to measure local glucose consumption in the various structures of the brain in man with three-dimensional resolution. [18F]-2-deoxy-2-fluoro-D-glucose is used as a tracer for the exchange of glucose between plasma and brain and its phosphorylation by hexokinase in the tissue. A mathematical model and derived operational equation(More)
Less than one in 1000 meningiomas metastasizes. Although the angioblastic and hemangiopericytic tumors are believed by some authors to metastasize with a greater frequency than the other histologic forms of meningioma, most investigators believe that neither the histologic pattern, local aggressiveness, size, nor location of the tumor can be used accurately(More)
We report an unusual case of granulocytic sarcoma involving the temporal bone. The occurrence of this tumor usually heralds acute myelogenous leukemia or the onset of the blastic phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia. Recognition of this rare entity is important, because early aggressive chemotherapy can cause regression of the tumor, as in our case, and(More)
PURPOSE To review the varied presentations of metastatic cervical lymph node disease in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma. METHODS Thirteen cases were retrospectively collected and their clinical, imaging, surgical, and pathologic material was reviewed. In the cases reviewed there was no clinical or imaging evidence of a primary thyroid mass. (More)
Intraosseous hemangiomas are uncommon, constituting less than 1% of all osseous tumors. The most frequent sites are the calvaria and the vertebral column. Involvement of the facial bones is rare, and occurs most commonly in the maxilla, mandible, and nasal bones. Only 20 cases of zygomatic involvement have been reported in the English-language literature.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Incidental positron-emission tomography (PET) uptake in the thyroid bed represents a diagnostic dilemma. Currently, there is no consensus regarding the significance of this finding or the most appropriate approach to management. The purpose of this study was to determine the significance of incidental fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake(More)
Involvement of the skeletal muscle by non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is unusual. The most commonly affected muscles are those of the extremities, pelvis, and gluteal regions; rarely are the muscles in the head and neck involved. We report the clinical, CT, and MR imaging findings in two patients with extranodal NHL in the head and neck region involving the(More)
