Reports about the frequency of odontogenic tumors are scarce, and diagnostic criteria used in the reports are not uniform. This article presents the results of a retrospective study of odontogenic tumors recorded in four services of diagnostic pathology in Mexico City (two dental schools, one cancer hospital, and one private oral pathology service). The(More)
BACKGROUND Calcifying odontogenic cyst was described first by Gorlin et al. in 1962; since then several hundreds of cases had been reported. In 1981, Praetorius et al. proposed a widely used classification. Afterwards, several authors proposed different classifications and discussed its neoplastic potential. The 2005 WHO Classification of Odontogenic(More)
Paracoccidioidomycosis is an endemic fungal infection in Latin America. This mucocutaneous disease often involves the oral mucosa and may clinically resemble other infectious and neoplastic processes. Paracoccidioidomycosis that clinically suggested squamous cell carcinoma was diagnosed in 2 patients with a history of heavy alcohol and tobacco use.(More)
Gastric cancer (GC) incidence has not declined in Mexico. We assessed whether the intake of capsaicin (CAP), the pungent compound of chili peppers, increases the risk of GC independently of H. pylori positivity (Hp). From 1994 to 1996, a hospital-based case-control study was performed in 3 areas of Mexico; 234 cases of GC and 468 matched controls were(More)
Hybrid tumours are very rare salivary gland lesions composed of two or more different tumoural entities in a single neoplasm that arise within a definite topographical region. In most cases adenoid cystic carcinoma has been the predominant component in these lesions. In this study we describe two patients with hybrid tumours located in the palate, one in a(More)
Osteosarcomas of the jaws represent less than 10% of all osteosarcomas, and most of them are high-grade neoplasms. Prognostic factors in overall survival include tumor size, location and histologic grade. Examples of well-differentiated (low-grade) intraosseous osteosarcomas of the jaws (WDIOJ) have been rarely reported. This article presents two cases of(More)
Bone metastases are very frequent in patients with cancer and usually are located in the patient's long bones and spine. Various approaches to pain relief and stability to the affected bone have been used. The aim of the study is to report our experience with a new minimally invasive percutaneous technique in patients with bone metastases located in the(More)
AIM To classify 163 ameloblastoma cases according to the new WHO Classification of Odontogenic Tumours (2005) and analyse their clinical and microscopic features. METHODS We studied the clinico-pathological features of 163 ameloblastoma cases from nine regional Latin-American institutions from Mexico and Guatemala. RESULTS Ameloblastomas comprised 22.7%(More)
Oral malignant melanoma is uncommon, accounting for 1-8% of all malignant melanomas. All previous papers have reported small numbers of cases or have retrospectively reviewed case reports from the literature. The following case reports concern malignant melanoma of the oral cavity seen at the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología, Mexico City, during the(More)
BACKGROUND Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) of the jaws is a rare benign tumour with an unknown aetiology accounting for up to 7% of tumours in the mandible (lower jaw) and the maxilla (upper jaw). OBJECTIVES This systematic review focused on assessing the effects of primary non-surgical versus primary surgical interventions or any other treatment or(More)
