Abstract : Oral and oropharyngeal malignancies is a recognized major public health concern all over the world. They are amongst the commonest malignancy in India and accounts for up to 20% cancer burden in India. It is a prospective study done over 2 years period in population with history exposed for tobacco and alcohol addiction, at Dr.D.Y.Patil Medical College, Pimpri a tertiary care hospital to study the incidence of head and neck malignancy considering the age, type of malignancy, site, presentation, its histopathological grade and patient compliance for treatment (surgery/radiotherapy/chemotherapy), post-operative complications, its management. Total of 12 cases of oral and oropharyngeal malignancies in patients were observed in ENT OPD in tertiary hospital over a period of 2 years. All the diagnosed cases were confirmed by biopsy/histopathology, out of which 8 patients were operable. 8 patients underwent surgery. Most of the patients are managed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Carcinoma tongue and carcinoma buccal mucosa accounted for most of the cases. Mean age of patients which accounted for most of the cases belonged to 41-50 years old with carcinoma tongue being the most common and moderately differentiated carcinoma being the most common type of differentiation. Most commonly men are affected in large number than women. In conclusion tobacco consumption was found to be a stronger risk factor for head and neck cancer than alcohol consumption. It is also found from our study that most commonly male population are affected than female population. The most common site of carcinoma is buccal mucosa..

Abstract : Head and neck malignancies are one of the common malignancies in India due to lack of awareness, difficult access to health care and addiction to tobacco and alcohol. Head and neck region has a rich lymphatic supply and hence nodal metastasis is common and can aid in diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. FNAC is considered as the gold standard investigation to confirm metastatic lymphadenopathy. Timely diagnosis and prompt management can reduce the morbidity and mortality due to head and neck malignancies. This study was done in otorhinolaryngology OPD of D Y Patil medical college. 25 patients of head and neck malignancies were taken and cervical lymph nodes were assessed. It was observed that most common age group affected was 56 -65 years and 10 out of 25 cases presented with a node while 20 of them had symptoms suggestive of malignancy. It was also observed that maximum number of cases presented with lymphadenopathy were stage IVA carcinomas..

Abstract : Amongst several Etiological causes of Rickets, one of the leading causes is Vitamin D and Calcium Deficiency. Vit D levels of our patient at presentation was 12.53 ng/ml, suggestive of nutritional deficiency of the same. (1) Patients with rickets are at increased risk for fractures (2). They commonly have bone pain and hyperalgesia that is poorly localized. The pain is most often located in the lower back, pelvis, and legs. The pain is worse at night, worse with weight-bearing, and worse with sudden movements, as was the case with our patient. Our management was aimed at correcting the nutritional deficiency along with surgically treating B/L fracture neck of femur. The operative procedure chosen should be similar to those recommended for the management of traumatic fractures of the neck of femur diagnosed late. These procedures should provide stable fixation of the fracture. In a young patient like ours, a decision was made to try and attempt to conserve the femur head by CRIF with three Austin Moore pins on each side. When Rickets develops due to 25(OH)D deficiency, treatment involves supplementation with cholecalciferol (D3) or ergocalciferol (D2). Symptoms of rickets may resolve rapidly with very small daily amounts, 800–1200 IU, of vitamin D3(4). The optimal target vitamin D is an area of controversy. The Institute of Medicine recommends targeting 25(OH)D levels >20 ng/mL for the for the general population. The AACE 2013 guidelines and the Endocrine Society 2011 guidelines recommend targeting 25(OH)D levels >30 ng/mL in bone disease..

Abstract : Preauricular sinus is a common congenital malformation. It was first described by Van Heusinger in 1864. It is formed from incomplete or abnormal fusion of the six auditory hillocks during embryological development of the auricle at the 6th week of intra-uterine life. The prevalence of preauricular sinus differs depending on the population ranging from 0.1% - 0.9%, in the USA; 0.9%, in England and 4% - 10% in some parts of Africa. They present as an asymptomatic pit like depression anterior to the root of the helix and superior to the level of tragus, not requiring any treatment if asymptomatic. Unusual presentations can be subtle with some difficulty in obtaining diagnosis. Some patients presenting with discharge due to recurrent infections of sinuses require antibiotic therapy and surgical resection of the sinus tract. Here is a case series of an atypical presentation of Preauricular sinus along with a postauricular cyst. Any patient presenting with recurrent postauricular abscess without any pathology in mastoid with a small pit in the preauricular area should be suspected to have preauricular sinus..

Abstract : Epidermal cysts are rare, slow-growing, benign, developmental cysts that are derived from abnormally situated ectodermal tissue. Epidermal cysts may grow anywhere on the body and about 7% of them are located in the head and neck. These cysts arise from traumatic implantation of epithelium or entrapment of epithelial remnants during embryonic fusion. Histopathologically, they are lined by stratified squamous epithelium without any skin appendages. We are presenting a case of epidermal cyst which developed in the sub- mandibular region..
