INTRODUCTION: Immunoglobulin G4-related sclerosing disease (IgG4-RSD) is a chronic fibro-inflammatory disease involving systemic multi-organ lesions, such as the salivary and lacrimal glands, lymph nodes and pancreas. The diagnosis of this disease is reliant upon clinical manifestations, laboratory tests, histopathologic results and radiological data. Some studies have found that IgG4-RSD has otological manifestations, whereas there were few studies introducing the diagnosis, therapy and long-term follow-up results of solely otological IgG4-RSD...

INTRODUCTION: Deep vein thrombosis of the upper-extremity (ueDVT) is often caused by trauma to the subclavian vein, central venous line and hypercoagulation disorders. CASE REPORT: We present a case of a ueDVT due to retrosternal goiter compressing the right brachiocephalic vein. Low molecular weight heparin was initiated subcutaneously and fluid was aspirated from the thyroid cyst causing an immediate improvement. Cytology detected no malignancy. At eight-month follow-up, the patient showed complete resolution of her symptoms...

OBJECTIVES: To develop an experimental protocol to study the vocal effort generated by introducing barriers to communication, and its relationship with certain personality traits. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The experimental protocol consisted of an interactive game in which the subject gave an investigator instructions to adopt various body positions (semi-directed communication situation). The Control situation included no constraints on communication. Then a Distance Constraint (increased distance between subject and investigator) and a Time Constraint (generation of performance stress by putting the subject in competition with others) were introduced...

INTRODUCTION: "Sociability" is defined as the range of experiences linking the subject to others. This is the first study to focus specifically on the impact of head and neck cancer on the sociability of patients' partners. METHOD: Data were collected via a dedicated questionnaire sent to patients' partners. The main endpoint was partner's self-assessment of the impact of the patient's disease on the partner's everyday life. The impact on sociability was analyzed with respect to: the circle of friends (friendship environment), unknown environment, known outside environment, necessary environment, and solitary activities...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric cancer (GC) is among the leading neoplasms with highest morbidity and mortality in the world. Tumor angiogenesis represents one of important targets of antineoplastic treatment, as it has an important role in cell development and growth. CASE REPORT: Ramucirumab, an IgG1 monoclonal antibody (MoAb), inhibits the angiogenesis pathway by blocking the VEGFR-2 activation. The most common adverse events associated with angiogenic inhibitors are cardiovascular and healing disorders, such as systemic arterial hypertension (HTN), thromboembolism, bleeding, wound healing delay and fistulas...

INTRODUCTION: Pulsatile tinnitus is a sound generated by an acoustic source from within the body, which is perceived by the auditory system of the patient. CASES SUMMARY: We report two puzzling cases of pulsatile tinnitus with normal ENT examinations: the first was due to a cervical internal carotid artery dissection, and the second to the compression of the foramina of Monro by a craniopharyngioma, leading to hydrocephalus. DISCUSSION: We review the systematic management and emphasize the decisive role of the ENT clinician regarding this pulsatile tinnitus complaint, because of the potentially severe complications of its underlying pathology...

INTRODUCTION: Head and neck cancer (HNC) patients often experience malnutrition before and during treatment. Prophylactic gastrostomy has emerged as an efficient tool for ensuring adequate nutrition. However, there is no suitable algorithm able to identify patients at high risk of malnutrition. The aim of this study was to describe the nutritional management, to assess the impact of prophylactic gastrostomy, and to identify predictors of malnutrition. METHODS: This retrospective study included 152 patients treated with surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy for HNC...
