The objective of this report is to summarize the symptoms, diagnostic workup, necessary imaging, and management of Eagle syndrome. A comprehensive literature review was conducted on peer-reviewed publications of Eagle syndrome across multiple disciplines in order to gain a thorough understanding of the presentation, diagnosis, and management of this(More)
Hyperactivated HER2/Neu/EGFR/RAS signaling is a major growth-promoting pathway known to drive cellular transformation and oncogenesis in breast cancers. HER2 amplification is detected in ~20% of all human breast cancer and is quite prevalent (up to 49%) in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The E3 ubiquitin ligase SIAH is considered a key downstream(More)
Crouzon syndrome is a complex craniosynostosis of autosomal dominant transfer, with a highly variable phenotypic appearance. Some patients are afflicted with a mild form of the disease and able to live a fully functional lifestyle, whereas many patients suffer from a severe form of the disease causing a significant impact on their quality of life. Although(More)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) are autoimmune diseases with a close relationship to their disease pattern and immunologic cascade with considerable morbidity and mortality. This article provides insight of why tumor necrosis factor blockers couldn't work in multiple sclerosis and why interferon-beta doesn't work in inflammatory(More)
Chronic constipation is a common medical complaint encountered often in a primary care setting. Most patients can be treated successfully with simple measures, including education, bowel habit training, increased fluid and fiber intake, and use of laxatives. Chronic constipation is usually considered idiopathic, but secondary causes should be excluded. In(More)
CONTEXT The incidence of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma has increased during the past decade and is related primarily to the human papillomavirus. This change in etiology, from tobacco and alcohol to human papillomavirus, has resulted in improved survival for the disease. In the United States, open resection had largely been replaced by concurrent(More)
Sarcoidosis is a complex disorder that often times involves the head and neck. Despite the presence of strong clinical evidence, tissue diagnosis and imaging is needed for confirmation of the disease. Although typically managed medically, when found in the sinonasal tract or intracranially, it may necessitate the intervention of a rhinologist-skull base(More)
OBJECTIVES The molecular underpinnings of Treacher Collins Syndrome (TCS) are diverse. This article codifies the most recent findings in this complex area of research to further current understanding of the disease process. Elucidating the genetic causes of the disorder can be useful in earlier detection and better treatment planning. DESIGN Articles from(More)
OBJECTIVES Individuals with nerve transection face unpredictable outcomes, and microsurgical interventions have variable success. The facial nerve in particular is prone to traumatic transection and leads to debilitating sequelae. Surgeons have used multiple modalities of enhancing nerve regeneration and restoring premorbid functionality. The success of(More)
