• symptoms
  • What are the common symptoms of paranasal sinus cancer? (healthtap.com)
  • Rationale Our aim is to conduct a prospective study to assess the patients referred for rhinosinusitis to a tertiary rhinologic practice whose symptoms include headache/facial pain, but have no evidence of significant rhinologic disease and determine whether a neurologic etiology is responsible for headaches or facial pressure/pain symptoms. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • They report improvement in sinusitis symptoms and reduction of need for revision sinus surgery in patients treated with surgery followed by topical intranasal tobramycin. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Patients were excluded if they were treated with any systemic antibiotic within 7 days prior to enrollment, had symptoms lasting for longer than 28 days, had 4 or more episodes of acute sinusitis within the preceding 12 months, had nasal or sinus surgery within 3 months prior (except for a diagnostic procedure), or complicated or nosocomial sinusitis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We hypothesize that subcutaneous Xolair (omalizumab) treatment will reduce the size of nasal polyps and/or sinus polypoid thickening and relieve CRS symptoms in patients with CRS/NP. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Cavernous sinus thrombosis symptoms include: decrease or loss of vision, chemosis, exophthalmos (bulging eyes), headaches, and paralysis of the cranial nerves which course through the cavernous sinus. (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common signs of CST are related to anatomical structures affected within the cavernous sinus, notably cranial nerves III-VI, as well as symptoms resulting from impaired venous drainage from the orbit and eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • The symptoms of this disease vary with the site of accumulation similar to other regional tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Daily treatment of DPB with macrolide antibiotics such as erythromycin eases symptoms and increases survival time, but the disease currently has no known cure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms of DPB include chronic sinusitis (inflamed paranasal sinuses), wheezing, crackles (respiratory sounds made by obstructions such as phlegm and secretions in the lungs), dyspnea (shortness of breath), and a severe cough that yields large amounts of sputum (coughed-up phlegm). (wikipedia.org)
  • In most cases, symptoms present themselves at an advanced stage of disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • bacterial sinus
  • The objective of the study is to demonstrate that, in the treatment of acute bacterial sinus infections, a 5-day course of 750 milligrams of levofloxacin given once daily is at least as effective as a 10-day course of 500 milligrams of levofloxacin given once daily and is well tolerated. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The objectives of the study were to confirm that a single, 2.0-g dose of azithromycin sustained release (SR) was at least as effective to 10 days of oral levofloxacin 500 mg once a day, when used to treat adults with uncomplicated, acute bacterial sinus infections, and to evaluate the safety of both treatments. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Diagnosis
  • The technique of shining light into the mouth, face, and sinuses is known as 'transillumination' and has been used for nearly a century to aid in the diagnosis of sinusitis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The diagnosis of cavernous sinus thrombosis is made clinically, with imaging studies to confirm the clinical impression. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cavernous sinus thrombosis is a clinical diagnosis with laboratory tests and imaging studies confirming the clinical impression. (wikipedia.org)
  • The differential diagnosis of Rosai-Dorfman disease includes both malignant and nonmalignant diseases, such as granulomatosis with polyangiitis, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, Langerhans cell sarcoma, lymphoma, sarcoidosis, and tuberculosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • infections
  • The patient population for this study will consist of patients who have a history of multiple sinus infections each year that require treatment with antibiotics. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • When treating sinus infections (sinusitis) caused by bacteria, the traditional duration of therapy is between 10 and 14 days. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Infections associated with diseases are those that are associated with possible infectious etiologies, that meet the requirements of Koch's postulates. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some infections found in animals have been studied for years, while other species found in animals have been described as new and specific to the investigated disease, and others have been known as names already in use for organisms such as saprophytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • allergens
  • Primary causes are believed to be gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), extra-esophageal reflux (EERD), exposure to inhaled allergens, post-nasal drip, exercise, or neurological conditions that can cause difficulty inhaling only during waking. (wikipedia.org)
  • fluid
  • Lateral and dorsoventral radiographs of the skull may reveal fluid lines, sinus cysts, solid masses, or lytic/proliferative changes associated with dental disease and neoplasia. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • Infected sinuses are filled with fluid and show up dark spots on the camera. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • undergo
  • Those that are insufficient (less than 32 ng/ml) and have agreed to undergo sinus surgery will be randomized to placebo or vitamin D3 supplementation (5,000IU/day) for 6 weeks prior to surgery. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • CRS patients with nasal polyposis (NP) are the most difficult to treat and the most likely to undergo sinus surgery. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • bacteria
  • Occasionally sinus rinses will force bacteria or fungus into other areas including the brain. (healthtap.com)
  • The disease is believed to occur when there is susceptibility, or a lack of immune system resistance, to DPB-causing bacteria or viruses, caused by several genes that are found predominantly in individuals of East Asian descent. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2016
  • In 2016 the Histiocyte Society proposed a classification of histiocytoses into five groups designated by letters: "C," "H," "L," "M," and "R." Group "R" included Rosai-Dorfman disease and "miscellaneous noncutaneous, non-Langerhans cell histiocytoses. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Patients will have a sinus specimen collected at the first visit. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In 2014, Dalia and colleagues wrote that for patients with extensive or systemic Rosai-Dorfman disease, "a standard of care has not been established" concerning radiotherapy and chemotherapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a Meta-analysis study to conglomerate findings regarding 28 published papers including 158 patients presenting SNUC following up with patients for an average of 14 months showed that at the time of last follow up 25% of patients were alive with no evidence of the disease, 22.4% were alive with presence of the disease, and 52.6% were deceased due to the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • infectious
  • A conclusive determination of a causal role of an infectious agent for in a particular disease using Koch's postulates is desired yet this might not be possible. (wikipedia.org)
  • The leading cause of death worldwide is cardiovascular disease, but infectious diseases are the second leading cause of death worldwide and the leading cause of death in infants and children. (wikipedia.org)
  • A list of the more common and well-known diseases associated with infectious pathogens is provided and is not intended to be a complete listing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infectious pathogen-associated diseases include many of the most common and costly chronic illnesses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Historically, some chronic diseases were linked or associated with infectious pathogens. (wikipedia.org)
  • Current Opinion in Infectious Diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clinical Infectious Diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • CBC, ESR, blood cultures, and sinus cultures help establish and identify an infectious primary source. (wikipedia.org)
  • allergic
  • However, several other factors are involved, including allergic, environmental, genetic and microbiologic factors and in any given patient, several of these factors may be contributing to the disease. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • obstruct
  • Occasionally, a large concha bullosa within a turbinate may cause it to bulge sufficiently to obstruct the opening of an adjacent sinus, possibly leading to recurrent sinusitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • immune
  • Other causes or associations of disease are: a compromised immune system, environmental toxins, radiation exposure, diet and lifestyle choices, stress, and genetics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rosai-Dorfman disease itself was classified into "Familial," "Classical (nodal)," "Extranodal," "Neoplasia-associated," and "Immune disease-associated" subtypes. (wikipedia.org)
