Spontaneous External Auditory Canal Cholesteatoma: Case Series and Review of Literature

AbstractExternal auditory canal cholesteatoma is a rare disease. Main symptoms of this entity are ear discharge and dull chronic ear pain and significant findings are bony erosion of the external canal with keratin debris accumulation. Inadequate diagnosis and delay in the treatment of this condition can leads to serious complications. We are presenting our experience of eight patients of spontaneous EACC treated by surgical management. As the spontaneous EACC is a rare condition, the aim of the study is to share the experience of diagnosis and management of spontaneous EACC.

Authors: Leclerc A, Matveeff L, Emery E Abstract Syringomyelia is a rare disorder in which a fluid-filled cyst forms within the spinal cord, resulting in myelopathy. Meanwhile, the abnormal dilatation of the central canal is referred to as hydromyelia or slit-like syrinx. The most prevailing classification is based on anatomical features and pathogeny rather than pathophysiological mechanisms. It is usual to distinguish foraminal syringomyelia related mainly to abnormalities at the craniocervical junction, non-foraminal syringomyelia dealing with any cause of arachnoiditis (infection, inflammation, trauma…) ...

ConclusionSickle cell disease can be diagnosed by newborn screening but, as in this case, may have a delayed presentation. The delay in diagnosis of homozygous sickle cell disease illustrates that other genetic disorders should be considered in patients who already have a diagnosis of one Mendelian disorder but show atypical features.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the use of a wide range of non-pharmacological interventions for the treatment of chronic pain in pwMS, the evidence for these interventions is still limited or insufficient, or both. More studies with robust methodology and greater numbers of participants are needed to justify the effect of these interventions for the management of chronic pain in pwMS.

The first part of this article described the upward pressures on costs and some of the philosophical debates over remedies. This section continues the discussion with several different angles on costs. Universal access and innovation It’s easy to call health care a human right. But consider an analogy: housing could also be considered a human right, yet no one has the right to a twenty-room mansion. Modern drug and genetic research are creating the equivalents of many twenty-room mansions, and taking up residence means the difference between life and death for someone, or perhaps between a long productive life and on...
