There are few studies on pediatric oral pathologies in the literature. This study presents data from a review of 2,356 biopsies of young patients (birth to 14 years) received over 15 years (1985-2000) in the Oral Pathology Service at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Information about patients (sex, age, race) and histopathological diagnosis was(More)
BACKGROUND Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is considered to be a distinct malignancy of the major salivary glands, because of its highly aggressive behaviour, and the high rate of recurrence, metastasis, and disease related death. AIMS To investigate expression of the proteins involved in the retinoblastoma (pRb) and p53 pathways, which control cell cycle(More)
To evaluate isotretinoin effect on alveolar repair after tooth extraction of maxillary incisor and serum calcium levels in rats. Wistar rats (60-day-old) were assigned to control (CG, n = 12) and experimental (EG, n = 20) groups. EG received daily isotretinoin (7.5 mg/kg) for 30 days before surgery and until euthanasia, 7, 21, 28, or 90 days after tooth(More)
Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the fifth most common type of cancer in the world. The effect of some etiological factors is well established in the literature, such as consumption of tobacco and alcohol. However, approximately 15 to 20% of all oral cancer cases occur in patients without the traditional risk factors, reflecting in numerous cases of(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical and demographic characteristics of oral non-odontogenic cysts (ONOC) in a Brazilian population over a 53-year period and to compare this data with the literature. STUDY DESIGN A total of 20.391 biopsies records were evaluated, from April/1959 to August/2012. Cases of oral developmental(More)
The objective was to investigate two cases of solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of oral mucosa, emphasizing the differential diagnosis with one case of oral hemangiopericytoma (HPC), in terms of their morphological and immunohistochemical features. Solitary fibrous tumors showed cellularity and collagenization varying from area to area, focal perivascular(More)
The expression of G1-phase cell-cycle regulators is commonly deregulated in human malignancies. In the present study, we investigate components of the retinoblastoma (RB) pathway in normal salivary glands (NSG) and in salivary gland tumours (SGT). Samples of NSG, pleomorphic adenoma (PA), adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC), mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC),(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the action of low level laser therapy (LLLT) on the percentage of newly formed bone in rabbit mandibles that underwent distraction osteogenesis (DO). STUDY DESIGN Ten rabbits underwent bone lengthening according to the following protocol: Latency - 3 days; Activation - 7 days 0.7 mm/d; and Consolidation - 10 days. The(More)
This study evaluated the use of red and infrared lasers on tissue surrounding the femurs of 60 rats randomly divided into three groups after implantation of bioabsorbable plates. The control group were not subjected to laser irradiation; group A was treated with red laser [indium–gallium–aluminum–phosphide (InGaAlP) laser, wavelength 685 nm, 35 mW,(More)
Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common neoplasm of the salivary glands, affecting mainly the parotid gland. The preferential intraoral site of this tumor is the palate. A case of a 31-year-old woman with an intraosseous pleomorphic adenoma located in the maxilla (left paramedian region), showing an approximate evolution of one year is reported. The present(More)
