    ABSTRACT: Hydatid cyst or disease is an anthropozoonosis due to the development of the larval form of the taenia Echinococcus granulosus in humans. It is endemic in Morocco. The location of a hydatid cyst in the infratemporal fossa (ITF) is extremely rare. The authors report a pediatric case. An 11 year old child was admitted to hospital with a history of left latero-facial swelling gradually increasing in volume for 2 months, CT scan of the face revealed a cystic formation of 7cm diameter sitting at the left ITF, hydatid serology was negative. A transzygomatic approach allowed the excision of the cyst. The histopathological examination of the resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis of hydatid cyst. The location at the infratemporal fossa of an expansive process such as hydatid cyst in children may have a particular impact on adjacent structures and a more meaningful clinical expression. The rate of growth of hydatid cysts is highly variable and ranges from 1 to 5cm a year. Hydatid serology is often negative. CT examination is the gold-standard radiological examination. Surgical removal of the hydatid cyst is the most effective treatment. The transzygomatic approach allowed a sufficient access to the cyst and a good quality of excision.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction Hydatid cyst or disease is an anthropozoonosis due to the development of the larval form of the taenia Echinococcus granulosus in humans. It is endemic in Morocco. The location of a hydatid cyst in the infratemporal fossa (ITF) is extremely rare. The authors report a pediatric case. Observation An 11 year old child was admitted to hospital with a history of left latero-facial swelling gradually increasing in volume for 2 months, CT scan of the face revealed a cystic formation of 7 cm diameter sitting at the left ITF, hydatid serology was negative. A transzygomatic approach allowed the excision of the cyst. The histopathological examination of the resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis of hydatid cyst. Discussion The location at the infratemporal fossa of an expansive process such as hydatid cyst in children may have a particular impact on adjacent structures and a more meaningful clinical expression. The rate of growth of hydatid cysts is highly variable and ranges from 1 to 5 cm a year. Hydatid serology is often negative. CT examination is the gold-standard radiological examination. Surgical removal of the hydatid cyst is the most effective treatment. The transzygomatic approach allowed a sufficient access to the cyst and a good quality of excision.

    ABSTRACT: Amputation of the lower third of the ear includes full thickness earlobe defects. Earlobe reconstruction depends on the covering and scaffold technique used. The Crikelair cervical skin flap is one of the available techniques for reconstruction. We discuss its assets and drawbacks by comparing it with alternative procedures.

    ABSTRACT: Les amputations du tiers inférieur de l’auricule englobent les pertes de substance de pleine épaisseur du lobule. Leur reconstruction est conditionnée par le choix de la technique de couverture et celle de l’armature. Le lambeau cutané cervical de Crikelair fait partie de la panoplie technique de ces réparations. Nous discutons ses avantages et ses inconvénients en les comparant aux autres possibilités.

    ABSTRACT: The Barraquer-Simons syndrome is a rare acquired acral partial lipodystrophy of unknown etiology. It progressively develops during childhood. It leads to a complete loss of subcutaneous fat in the face, neck, trunk and upper limbs. The disease is more common in female than male patients and causes facial dysmorphy. Free fat transplantation seems to be an appropriate technique to treat facial abnormalities encountered in this syndrome.
