" PSORL Clinical Meeting And Office Inauguration Report "

A PSORL clinicopathological meeting took place at ENT –I SIMS/Services Hospital, Lahore hosted by Prof. Mohammad Amjad and his team. Prof. Mohammad Ali Tirmizey, Prof. Manzoor Ahmad, Prof. Zubair Iqbal Bhutta, Prof. Najmul Hasnain, Prof. Shahid Imran, Brig Dr. Zubair, and Prof. Naveed Aslam participated in this meeting where two important cases were presented.

The first case was regarding a patient who wa diagnosed as a case of Wagener’s Granuloma and the other one was bilateral abductor Paralysis. Many junior consultants from various teaching hospital and about thirty post graduate residents also actively participated in this event. Later on Prof. Hamid Butt Principal Services Institute of Medical Sciences, Lahore also joined the meeting and addressed the participants and assured that such activities will always be supported. He also inaugurated the PSORL office in ENT Unit – I. At the end the tea was served and M/s Shazoo Pharma was offered vote of thanks for their practical participation.

Wagener’s Granuloma is a rare condition which is multisystemic in nature and therefore is difficult to treat. However our patient since almost 1 ½ years has improved significantly with adequate conservative management. This disease in ENT can present with Epistaxis, hearing loss, dysphonia and external nasal deformity. Although raise ESR, c ANCA play significant role in diagnosis yet biopsy confirms the disease. Bilateral abductor paralysis usually is sudden in onset and can be because of systemic diseases, iatrogenic or idiopathic. It is usually managed by tracheostomy but we did posterior cordectomy which lead to conservation of speech and good breathing. Use of laser in such cases has lead to dramatic change in the management of VFI problems.
