This medical record review investigated the incidence and characteristics of human papillomavirus–positive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma in a Veterans Affairs population.
This cohort study uses electronic medical record review data to compare glossectomy defect reconstructive techniques and to identify factors associated with improved long-term speech and swallowing function in patients undergoing total glossectomy with or without total laryngectomy for tongue cancer.
This case-series review assessed the effect of a patient-centric navigation system using a nurse coordinator on the time from presentation to formulation of treatment planning for patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.

This case series describes the use of the teres major muscle as a free flap for reconstruction in patients with head and neck defects.
This case series of adults treated with teriparatide for symptomatic postthyroidectomy hypocalcemia occurring immediately after thyroidectomy tests the hypothesis that teriparatide therapy would expedite relief of symptomatic hypocalcemia and reduce the duration of hospitalization.
This study shows that additional airway findings were common in children with laryngotracheal clefts, but these anomalies did not affect surgery-specific or overall surgical success.
This medical record review assesses the clinical presentation, radiologic features, management, and outcomes of jaw cysts in children treated at a single academic institution.
This study evaluates the effect of vestibular implant insertion on hearing in a sand rat model with normal hearing (Psammomys obesus), which has a unique aural anatomy that permits access to the inner ear.
A woman with a history of localized invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast treated with wide local excision 13 years previously presented with right-sided lower motor neuron facila nerve palsy and discomfort around her right ear. What is the diagnosis?
An infant with a postauricular mass underwent ultrasonography that revealed a nonvascular, well-circumscribed lesion in the soft tissue with a heterogenous echotexture that was hypoechoic without internal vascularity or distinct calcifications. What is the diagnosis?
A man with painless progressive swelling of the anterior mandible underwent computed tomography, which demonstrated severe erosion of the facial and lingual cortices with a remarkable scalloping pattern and wispy, ill-defined intralesional septa, and indicated a cystic and solid mass. What is the diagnosis?
An adolescent girl with a 1-year history of submental swelling underwent ultrasonography, which revealed a well-circumscribed, avascular, homogeneous, isoechoic lesion. What is the diagnosis?
A woman in her 60s presented with a history of persistent globus pharyngis. Laryngoscopy revealed yellowish, floppy granular proliferation affecting the bilateral arytenoids and posterior aspects of the aryepiglottic folds, with symmetrical vocal cord motion. What is the diagnosis?
