We present the case of a 2-year-old male with a complex left cervical venolymphatic malformation who underwent doxycycline sclerotherapy at 12 months of age complicated by new onset pulmonary aspiration. A review of the literature reveals this to be a rare complication of sclerotherapy and only the second reported case.

To evaluate the efficacy of aspiration and sclerotherapy with 100% alcohol for the primary treatment of benign scrotal cysts.
Pulmonary aspiration is the passage of food, gastroesophageal reflux and/or saliva to the airway in a manner sufficient to cause chronic or recurrent respiratory symptoms. It is an important cause of ...
Severe temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) could induce dysphagia, which could lead to aspiration pneumonia. However, no clinical study has reported that TMD-related dysphagia could result in aspir...
Dysphagia following anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a common complication, the etiology of which has not been established. Given that one potential mechanism for dysphagia is local t...
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) therapy in the head and neck has been effectively used to rehabilitate swallowing in adult patients with acquired dysphagia. Limited data is available for t...
Investigator initiated prospective study to determine whether the use of a negative pressure suction in the hypopharynx will reduce the amount of aspiration during Video Fluoroscopic Swall...
This study will investigate whether silent aspiration during swallowing can reliably be detected using acoustic signal processing plus pulse oximetry.
In order to discover dysphagia scales, which shows meaningful predictability of aspiration and functional health status in patients with acute stroke, authors plan to find out more predict...
The aim of the study is to estimate the effect of chewing gum after anterior cervical fusion surgery on decreasing the severity of dysphagia in patients with mild-moderate dysphagia.
Ultrasonic surgical aspiration of the cervix may be an effective method of treating cervical dysplasia without compromising the integrity of the cervix in reproductive age women.
A condition caused by inhalation of MECONIUM into the LUNG of FETUS or NEWBORN, usually due to vigorous respiratory movements during difficult PARTURITION or respiratory system abnormalities. Meconium aspirate may block small airways leading to difficulties in PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE and ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
Difficulty in SWALLOWING which may result from neuromuscular disorder or mechanical obstruction. Dysphagia is classified into two distinct types: oropharyngeal dysphagia due to malfunction of the PHARYNX and UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; and esophageal dysphagia due to malfunction of the ESOPHAGUS.
A syndrome of DYSPHAGIA with IRON-DEFICIENCY ANEMIA that is due to congenital anomalies in the ESOPHAGUS (such as cervical esophageal webs). It is known as Patterson-Kelly syndrome in the United Kingdom.
A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.
A group of metabolic disorders primarily of infancy characterized by the subacute onset of psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, ataxia, weakness, vision loss, eye movement abnormalities, seizures, dysphagia, and lactic acidosis. Pathological features include spongy degeneration of the neuropile of the basal ganglia, thalamus, brain stem, and spinal cord. Patterns of inheritance include X-linked recessive, autosomal recessive, and mitochondrial. Leigh disease has been associated with mutations in genes for the PYRUVATE DEHYDROGENASE COMPLEX; CYTOCHROME-C OXIDASE; ATP synthase subunit 6; and subunits of mitochondrial complex I. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p850).
