    Vagus Nerve and Vagus Nerve Stimulation, a Comprehensive Review: Part III

    Schematics of the anti-inflammatory response mediated by VNS. The spleen responds to immunogens by a systemic release of TNFα and other cytokines, which leads to the activation of HPA. Inflammatory signals transmitted via vagal afferent and dorsal root ganglion (DRG) activate a feedback loop to dampen the inflammatory response. VNS modulates the inflammatory reflex through both sympathetic and parasympathetic pathways. VNS attenuates inflammatory response in the spleen via specialized T-cells and macrophages (Mϕ). VNS induces the systemic release of norepinephrine (NE), epinephrine (E), and dopamine (D) from the adrenal glands. VNS suppresses the local inflammatory response via specialized Mϕ.

    Infraorbital Neuralgia Attributed to a Foreign Body

    (A) On endoscopic examination, we found a tiny impacted foreign body in the left nasal vestibule. (B) The foreign body just looked like a hair in the nostril. The foreign body was a curved plastic pin.

    Hemicrania continua may respond to repetitive sphenopalatine ganglion block: A case report

    Improvement in ocular signs with SPG block therapy. At week 3 (top), at week 4 (middle), and week 6 (bottom). Note that the top image was taken at a dimmer light condition than the other pictures to better demonstrate the miosis in the patient's right eye.

    Magnetic resonance cisternogram showing the CSF leak in the ethmoidal sinus. (a) MR cisternogram coronal section showing CSF in the right posterior ethmoidal sinus (arrow). (b) Same MRI cisternogram T1 image showing CSF in the sphenoidal sinus (arrow). (c) MRI cisternogram axial imaging showing CSF in the posterior ethmoidal sinus through a defect in the floor of the left middle cranial fossa (arrow). (d) Left sphenoidal sinus encephalocele (arrow).
