Rhinoliths consist of a central nidus with calcification resulting in calcareous concretions within the nasal cavity. They are uncommon in the literature despite a propensity particularly in children to insert foreign bodies into their nose and ears. We present the case of a 62-year-old woman with a longstanding undetected rhinolith with mild uncharacteristic symptoms. Radiographic examination revealed anatomical alteration of the inferior turbinate that was attributed to the long presence of the rhinolith in the nasal cavity. The management of the rhinolith and a review of the literature are presented. Source

The spectacular progress of research in the nanotechnology field led to the achievement of important knowledge of materials at the atomic and molecular scale and the extent of the use of nanoparticles in the design of medical products, ecological processes, cosmetics and other biotechnological applications. One of the current focuses of the medical applications of nanotechnology is the development of new strategies to inhibit the activity of different microorganisms. The purpose of this review was to present the antimicrobial activity of metal cations in micro- and nanoparticulate forms and the dependence of this biological activity on shape, size and physico-chemical conditions. © 2015 Bentham Science Publishers.
