    Instrumental perforation of the pharynx with distal obstruction is a complex problem. A fistula is not likely to close in the presence of distal obstruction. The stenotic lesion needs to be treated in addition to the perforation. We report a 83-year-old female patient who underwent three-stage...

    Background In Africa, especially in West Africa, studies about the prevalence and diversity of respiratory viruses (influenza and others) in elderly people are largely lacking. In studies done elsewhere, it is well established that older people, when compared with younger adults, are at greater...
