22081. Multiple hydatid cysts of the neck, the nasopharynx and the skull base revealing cervical vertebral hydatid disease. (Abstract)

Multiple hydatid cysts of the neck, the nasopharynx and the skull base revealing cervical vertebral hydatid disease. Hydatid disease is caused by the parasitic tapeworm Echinococcus. This parasite in larval stage can thrive in many parts of the body, most commonly in the liver and the lung. Hydatid disease in the head and neck is uncommon and hydatid cyst presents rarely as a cervical mass. Cervical vertebral echinococcosis is rare. We report a 14-year-old girl with multiple cervical spine (...) hydatid cysts of the C1-C2 vertebrae that spread into the surrounding paravertebral tissues and involve the nasopharynx and the skull base particularly the left jugular foramen. This process has caused a progressive swelling in the left side of the neck located in the retrostyloid compartment of the parapharyngeal space with paralysis of cranial nerves (VI, IX, X, XI, XII). The diagnosis was made based on the image obtained from CT and MRI examinations. Characteristics of this rare disease, diagnosis

22084. Congenital dacryocystocele associated with intranasal cysts: diagnosis and management. (Abstract)

Congenital dacryocystocele associated with intranasal cysts: diagnosis and management. To improve the diagnostic and therapeutic database for congenital dacryocystoceles.Retrospective case study of 10 patients with dacryocystoceles treated in an academic integrated tertiary care practice. Management and outcomes are compared to previous reports in the literature.Between the years 1990 and 2001, 10 patients were diagnosed with dacryocystoceles. Seven were females, and 3 were males. Age ranged (...) from 1 to 75 days. Nine of 10 had a unilateral dacryocystocele, and 1 had bilateral dacryocystoceles. Epiphora was reported in 8 patients. Preoperatively, dacryocystitis, facial cellulitis, or both were present/developed in 2 patients. Symptoms of airway obstruction were present in 3 neonates. Surgery was performed in 9 of 10 patients and was a combined ophthalmology/otolaryngology surgery in 7 cases. Two patients were treated with probing only. Intranasal cysts were identified in all 7 patients

22085. Rathke cleft cyst: diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. (Abstract)

Rathke cleft cyst: diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. To highlight diagnostic and therapeutic issues about Rathke cleft cysts for otorhinolaryngologists.Retrospective.We retrospectively reviewed data collected on Rathke cleft cysts between 1978 and 1998: presenting symptoms, visual acuity, surgical treatment, complications, recurrences, and effect on daily activity.Twenty-nine patients were diagnosed with a Rathke cleft cyst (11 male and 18 female patients; mean age, 46 y). The most (...) common presenting symptom was head pain (55%). The majority (59%) of cases demonstrated suprasellar extension on preoperative imaging, with pituitary dysfunction identified in 66%. Recurrence occurred in eight patients (28%). Postoperative visual function improved or remained stable in all patients. Persistent pituitary dysfunction required hormonal supplementation in seven patients (24%). Only one patient with an astrocytoma in addition to a Rathke cleft cyst did not maintain the ability to perform

22086. Submandibular and intracranial hydatid cyst in an adolescent. (Abstract)

Submandibular and intracranial hydatid cyst in an adolescent. An unusual case of hydatid disease is reported. Review of the pertinent literature did not reveal any hydatid disease located simultaneously in both the intracranial and submandibular glands. This is the first case with hydatid disease occurring in both locations at the same time.The case of an 18-year-old is presented; the symptoms, findings, methods of diagnosis, and our approach for treatment are discussed; and the literature (...) is reviewed.The intracranial lesion was completely excised by left-sided frontoparietal craniotomy, and the mass in the right side of the submandibular gland was removed through a submandibular approach at the same session. The intact cyst was completely excised. Histological examination of both lesions confirmed the diagnosis of hydatid cyst by. Postoperative recovery was uneventful, and the patient was discharged on the seventh day.Hydatid cyst should be suspected during the evaluation of cervical masses

22087. The clinical value of image cytometry DNA analysis in distinguishing branchial cleft cysts from cystic metastases of head and neck cancer. (Abstract)

The clinical value of image cytometry DNA analysis in distinguishing branchial cleft cysts from cystic metastases of head and neck cancer. A branchial cleft cyst presents as a lump in the neck that, generally, is easily cured by surgical excision. The preoperative diagnosis is based on clinical examination and, especially in the Scandinavian countries, fine-needle aspiration cytology. However, at times, the histopathological analysis of the excised cyst reveals a cystic metastasis of squamous (...) cell carcinoma of the head and neck. If adequate diagnosis could be obtained preoperatively, patients would most likely fare better. The study was performed to investigate whether the diagnostic accuracy for these lesions could be improved preoperatively by image cytometry DNA analysis of the fine-needle aspiration cytology specimen.Image cytometry DNA analysis was performed on the preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology specimen and the surgical specimens from 51 patients with solitary cysts

22089. Lymphoepithelial cyst in the lung: a case report. (Abstract)

Lymphoepithelial cyst in the lung: a case report. An unusual endobronchial presentation of lymphoepithelial cysts (LECs) is described in a HIV-seropositive patient. The bilateral infrahilar cysts had followed an apparently benign course for 2 years. Bronchoscopy revealed an endobronchial mass occluding the anterior basilar segment of the left lower lobe. Biopsy resulted in emptying of the cyst and showed the typical pseudostratified columnar epithelium with intraepithelial lymphocytes of an LEC (...) . This diagnosis should be considered in patients with HIV infection and pulmonary cysts on CT.

22090. Clinical spectrum of mediastinal cysts. (Abstract)

Clinical spectrum of mediastinal cysts. Congenital cysts of the mediastinum are an uncommon but important diagnostic group, representing 12 to 30% of all mediastinal masses. The purpose of this study was to review our institutional experience with congenital cysts of the mediastinum, emphasizing the clinical spectrum of the disease.Retrospective study.University hospital unit of general thoracic surgery.We retrospectively reviewed the records of 105 patients with cysts of the mediastinum (50 (...) male and 55 female patients) who comprised 13.0% of mediastinal masses over the past 50 years.There were 10 pediatric patients (< 15 years old) and 95 adult patients. The prevalence of cysts in the adult populations was higher than that in children (14.1% vs 7.7%, p < 0.05). There were 47 bronchogenic cysts, 30 thymic cysts, 12 pericardial cysts, 7 pleural cysts, 4 esophageal duplications, 2 meningoceles, 1 thoracic duct cyst, and 2 others.

22091. Intrahepatic biliary cysts in biliary atresia in the era of liver transplantation. (Abstract)

Intrahepatic biliary cysts in biliary atresia in the era of liver transplantation. The development of intrahepatic biliary cysts (IBC) after Kasai operation in patients with biliary atresia (BA) is recognized as an important problem; however, management strategy for IBC has not been clarified, particularly in the light of the increased use of liver transplantation.Forty consecutive BA patients underwent hepatic portoenterostomy during 18 years from 1983 to 2000. We compared the clinical course (...) and prognosis of the patients who developed IBC with those who did not.Seven of the 40 patients developed IBC. Three patients had type A (non-communicating cyst) and three patients had type C (multiple cystic dilation) IBC, and the remaining patients had type B (communicating cyst). Of the 7 patients, one patient underwent successful internal intestinal drainage, and one patient died of complications at the time of internal intestinal drainage. Three patients underwent liver transplantation due to either

22097. Ruptured hydatid cysts of the lung in children: clinical review and results of surgery. (Abstract)

Ruptured hydatid cysts of the lung in children: clinical review and results of surgery. Rupture of a hydatid cyst may cause some unique problems, especially in children.Sixty-three children with a total of 68 ruptured lung hydatid cysts were operated on between 1980 and 2000. Mean age was 12.3 years (range, 1 to 15 years). Radiographic findings were hydropneumothorax (20.6%) and air-fluid level (19%). Mean follow-up was 19.3 months.Transthoracic needle aspiration was responsible for the rupture (...) in 3 children. The interval between cyst rupture and operation was less than 24 hours in 10 patients (15.9%), 1 to 4 days in 36 (57.1%), and more than 4 days in 17 (27%). Resection rate was 22.1%. The most frequent operative method was cystotomy and capitonnage (38%). Morbidity was 25.4% (extended air leak 5, empyema 3, bronchopleural fistula 3, atelectasis 3, pneumonia 2). Mortality was 4.7% (hemoptysis 1, pneumonia and sepsis 1, aspiration of hydatid material 1). Morbidity and mortality seem

22099. Giant hydatid cysts of lung and liver. (Abstract)

Giant hydatid cysts of lung and liver. A 13-year-old girl was admitted to our clinic with the complaints of dyspnea, abdominal distention, cough, and right-sided chest pain.The diagnosis of disease was made with physical examination and radiologic evaluation. She underwent right thoracotomy and phrenotomy for the management of the hydatid cysts of the lung and the liver. The postoperative course was uneventful and she was discharged on the 10th postoperative day. We believe (...) that the simultaneous management of concomitant pulmonary and hepatic hydatid cysts through a thoracicroute is a convenient option.
