Brown tumor is a rare clinical entity complicating hyperparathyroidism. It may occur in the head and neck, with the mandible being the most frequent site. Hyperparathyroidism is usually associated with hypercalcemia. We report a case of madibular Brown tumor secondary to primary hyperparathyroidism. In this case in spite of hyperparathyroidism and the bony(More)

In this paper, six cases with tuberculous parotitis are reported which were evaluated as a benign parotid neoplasm in 216 specimens pre-operatively. All but one of them had no previous history of tuberculosis and all had a parotid lump as a sole symptom for at least one year. The(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS Between April 2006 and April 2010, 44 children (26 boys, 18 girls; mean age 81.1±16.9 months; range 54 to 115 months) who were prelingually implanted and who had an implant(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the effect of age, radiotherapy, insertion time of prosthesis, the period between radiotherapy and insertion time on in situ lifetime of Provox, voice quality and complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included the use of 62 Provox voice prosthesis in 50 total laryngectomy patients (46 males, 4 females; mean age 61 years;(More)

Metastasis predominantly occurs via the lymphatic system in head and neck tumors. The disturbance of the lymphatic system in the cervical region resulting from neck dissection or radiotherapy may result in unusual patterns of metastasis in patients with recurrent tumors. This is more frequent when the recurrent tumor invades the myocutaneous flap used for(More)
