Cochleovestibular manifestations in Fabry disease: Importance of screening and systematic ENT evaluation
ConclusionsMore than half of patients had ENT involvement. All FD patients should undergo early ENT screening for diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic purposes. Systematic complete ENT follow-up with auditory and vestibular evaluation should be performed regularly, even for heterozygous women.

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma with cutaneous metastases
DiscussionNasopharyngeal carcinoma with cutaneous metastases is a rapidly fatal disease. In the light of these two cases and a review of the literature, patients with this disease are aged between 30 and 63 years with a marked male predominance. Cutaneous metastases are correlated with a more advanced primary tumour. The main sites are the trunk and scalp. There is no standard treatment modality for this disease and survival does not exceed 9 months. (Source: European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Diseases)

Spontaneous arytenoid dislocation and crico-arytenoid instability
We report here an unusual case of spontaneous arytenoid dislocation, which casts doubts on the prevailing classical theory of hemarthrosis.Results and conclusionsThis case and a review of the literature suggest that arytenoid dislocation could be linked to congenital or acquired arytenoid instability, thus facilitating arytenoid dislocation after even minor trauma. Once the diagnosis is established, we recommend to first attempt reduction, followed by speech therapy, though underlying diseases should be researched.

Spondylodiscitis after transoral robotic surgery: Retrospective 7-case series from the GETTEC group
ConclusionThis French multicenter study found elevated mortality in post-TORS spondylodiscitis, even in case of limited resection. Surgeons must be aware of this complication and alerted by persistent neck pain, fever, asthenia, impaired or delayed posterior pharyngeal wall wound healing or elevation of inflammatory markers.

Application of Burow's solution for cement foreign body in the external auditory canal
We present the case of a 37 year-old man with cement foreign body in the right external auditory canal. Removal of the foreign body was difficult because of severe adhesion to the external auditory canal and tympanic membrane. We therefore used acidic Burow's solution to dissolve the alkaline cement deposition. Application of Burow's solution immediately caused the deposition to take on a paste-like consistency that was easily removed.DiscussionBurow's solution seems useful for removing cement foreign bodies in the external auditory canal.
