Diagnosis and management of solitary fibrous tumour

This is a retrospective review of 21 patients diagnosed with solitary fibrous tumour of the orbit between 1996 and 2018 at a single centre. The authors reviewed the clinical presentation, management and course of the disease and reanalysed the histopathology...

Endoscope and concealed incisions for small benign tumours of the accessory parotid gland

While the most common conventional approaches for benign tumours of the parotid gland are the standard parotidectomy incision, a modified standard parotidectomy incision and a face lift incision, the authors have used a modified endoscopic approach with minimal concealed incisions...

Propranolol as diagnostic tool for infantile haemangiomas

Infantile haemangiomas are common, benign vascular tumours. Other vascular lesions, which can mimic infantile haemangiomas, include myofibroma, vascular malformations, rhabdomyosarcoma or dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. The diagnosis of a haemangioma can usually be made based on clinical presentation and medical examination. This...

Wide en bloc resection of lacrimal sac tumours

This is a retrospective review of the management and outcomes of 14 malignant tumours of the lacrimal sac. All patients were operated on jointly by an orbital surgeon and a head and neck surgeon. There is a detailed description of...

Lacrimal gland carcinoma

This is a major review of the management of lacrimal gland carcinoma, focusing mainly on adenoid cystic carcinoma. Relevant literature published in English since 1970 was included amounting to some 40 articles after filtering. Overall mortality for all lacrimal gland...

Cheek reconstruction following melanoma excision

Malignant melanoma occurs most commonly on the cheek and thus are usually diagnosed early, rarely needing large reconstructions following advanced disease. This is a retrospective looking at 26 patients identified that had undergone treatment for cheek melanomas between 1996 and...

FNA in the diagnosis of malignant salivary gland tumours

Salivary gland tumours are relatively rare and occur with an incidence of 2.5-3% per 100,000 people. Histologically they are extremely diverse with several patterns; some of which overlap and exact diagnosis can be difficult. Indeed it can be difficult to...

Combined Vismodegib and Mohs surgery

This is a report of eight patients with locally advanced periocular basal cell carcinoma who were treated with Vismodegib prior to Mohs micrographic surgery. The rationale for the combined treatment plan was that long-term Vismodegib is poorly tolerated due to...

Core or fine needle assessment in lymphadenopathy and salivary gland tumours

This paper from the Republic of Korea analyses 278 patients retrospectively, 112 of which underwent fine need aspiration and 166 core needle biopsies. Eleven patients had indeterminate fine needle aspiration cytology, six of whom had an additional core biopsy. The...

PD-1 and PD-L1 in exenteration specimens

This is an immunohistochemical study looking at variation in the expression of the programmed death-1 receptor (PD-1) and the programmed cell death ligand-1 (PD-L1), comparing cutaneous malignancies which invaded the orbit with uncomplicated nodular basal cell carcinomas. The authors retrospectively...

Imaging and histological relationship of orbital schwannomas

This is a retrospective review of 15 patients with orbital schwannomas comparing the radiological characteristics, in particular the signal intensity on MRI with the histological sub-types of the tumours. Five patients had MRI imaging alone, three had CT alone and...

The lateral neck cystic mass – diagnostic dilemma

Solitary cystic masses in the lateral neck can present a significant diagnostic dilemma. These cystic masses often develop in young adults distinguishing a branchial cleft cyst from a cystic lymph node with imaging and even high-quality fine needle aspiration cytology...
