Cadir B, Karahan N, Nasir S, Aydin MA, Turkaslan SS - Eur J Dent (2009)

Bottom Line: We report synchronous presentation of maxillary sinus fibrosarcoma and gemistocytic astrocytoma which is, to our knowledge, unique in the literature.Both tumors metastases to other organ rarely and the metastatic spread of gemistocytic astrocytoma to fibrosarcoma or vice versa have also not been reported in the literature yet.This report discusses the clinical course of the disease, outcome of the treatment approach and survival as well as an unusual occurrence of leukocytoclastic vasculitis during the course of radiotherapy in such unusual presentation.

ABSTRACT
Fibrosarcoma of the paranasal sinuses is extremely rare pathology and there is limited report in the literature. We report synchronous presentation of maxillary sinus fibrosarcoma and gemistocytic astrocytoma which is, to our knowledge, unique in the literature. Both tumors metastases to other organ rarely and the metastatic spread of gemistocytic astrocytoma to fibrosarcoma or vice versa have also not been reported in the literature yet. This report discusses the clinical course of the disease, outcome of the treatment approach and survival as well as an unusual occurrence of leukocytoclastic vasculitis during the course of radiotherapy in such unusual presentation.

f3-0030233: Relatively localized decrease in left-maxillary vestibular depth from canine to the second premolar region.

Mentions: The family history of the patient revealed an unknown femoral bone malignancy in his father. Although no significant extra- and intra-oral swellings were present, clinical examination showed localized decrease in left-maxillary vestibular depth from the canine to the second premolar region, relatively (Figure 3). Slight pain was present on palpation. There was no regional lymphadenopathy or any evidence suggests ocular involvement. While radiological examination with orthopantomography (OPG) showed resorption at the internal surface of the left maxillary sinus (Figure 4), maxillary occlusal radiograph revealed an enlarged left maxillary sinus with poorly defined margins (Figure 5). Left-maxillary sinus filled by a mass in 36 × 53 × 57 mm dimensions was also apparent in CT-images (Figure 2b). Invasion of the left-maxillary sinus mass into the adjacent tissues were remarkable with its extension to the anterolateral-, inferior-, medial-wall of the maxillary sinus, orbital cavity and pterygopalatinal fossa (T4). CT-images showed that the multiple gemistocytic astrocytomas (Figure 2a) were coexist with the left maxillary sinus mass (Figure 2b) on the preoperative CT-images (with contrast) obtained before any procedure was applied.
