[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), is an enteral feeding procedure, easy to tolerate and simple to perform. PEG appears to be an alternative to surgical gastrostomy. Used in ten patients with E.N.T. cancer, we only observe two minor complications. Advisable in a first time for the feeding of patients with palliative treatment, we propose PEG for patients in position to have a long and difficult rehabilitation of swallowing.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The authors report on a case of Wegener's syndrome diagnosed fortuitously by the discovery of a perforation of the nasal septum during a bronchial fibroscopy for monitoring of a pulmonary fibrosis. In addition to the late appearance of the nasal perforation, the clinical picture includes classic polyvisceral impairment with pulmonary fibrosis, polyarthralgias and renal insufficiency. After 21 months of treatment, a stabilization of the visceral lesions was recorded, with the all but total disappearance of the E.N.T. lesions.
