Efficacy of OK-432 Therapy for the Incisionless Treatment of Head and Neck Cystic Masses: Case series

Hesham Y. A. Hasan, Muhammad A. Rizwan

Abstract


Head and neck masses can present in different pathologies that usually vary according to the age of the patient. We report five cases of benign head or neck masses occurring among patients of different ages who were managed at the Bahrain Defence Force Royal Medical Services Hospital, Ar-Rifaa, Bahrain, between 2005–2014. All of the patients were treated using the sclerotherapeutic agent OK-432. Although surgical removal is usually considered optimal treatment in the management of such cases, OK-432 appears to be a promising alternative.
