Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) has been described as a condition that characteristically affects the jaws of middle-aged black women. Radiographically, FCOD appears as dense, lobulated masses, often symmetrically located in various regions of the jaws. FCOD is usually asymptomatic. In severe cases, focal expansion may occur due to infection.(More)
BACKGROUND Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a relatively common chronic inflammatory disease whose etiopathogenesis is not completely understood. Several factors have been proposed in an attempt to explain the variety of clinical manifestations and periods of exacerbation and remission of symptoms of these lesions. The objective of this study was to associate(More)
OBJECTIVE Cytokeratins (CKs) are the intermediate filament proteins of the epithelium cells, which have become important markers of normal and abnormal cell differentiation. The goal of the present study was to investigate the expression pattern of CK 10, 13, 14 and 16 in oral verrucous carcinoma (OVC) and oral squamous papilloma (OSP). MATERIAL AND(More)
OBJECTIVES AND METHODS Thirty patients undergoing hemodialysis were evaluated for their periodontal condition through plaque, calculus and gingival indexes; PSR and IgA present in the saliva were also appraised in order to determine the periodontal condition of patients presenting chronic kidney disease. RESULTS Results obtained demonstrated that in the(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of FoxP3(+) cells in oral lichen planus (OLP) and to correlate the findings with clinical and histopathological features of these lesions. The sample consisted of 32 cases of OLP (17 reticular and 15 erosive cases) and 10 cases of inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia (IFH). Clinical examination,(More)
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the immunohistochemical expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-C1) and measuring the angiogenic activity by the staining for von Willebrand factor (vWF) and CD31 in oral pyogenic granulomas and hemangiomas. The results showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the(More)
An increasing incidence of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in individuals younger than 45 years has been observed in recent years. OSCC in younger patients differs in terms of biological behavior and prognosis with the disease being more aggressive than in older patients. The aim of this study was to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of(More)
Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are benign osteolytic lesions that occur rarely in the jaws. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical, radiographical and pathological features of ABCs of the jaws. A retrospective analysis of the content of a 39-year database, including nine cases of ABCs of the jaws diagnosed from the archives of the Oral(More)
PURPOSE It has been reported that the oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in tongue shows a more infiltrative profile, aggressive clinical course and poor prognosis, which may be related to a higher metastatic potencial. The aim of the present study was to assess the expression of β-catenin in OSCC of the tongue and its correlation with tumor metastasis. (More)
Renal osteodystrophy (ROD) is the bone pathology that occurs as an uncommon complication related to the several alterations in mineral metabolism present in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This paper describes two cases of severe ROD affecting the maxilla and mandible and causing facial disfigurement of a young and a middle-aged female patient(More)
