UNLABELLED Oral leukoplakia represents the most common potentially malignant oral disorder, representing 85% of such lesions. The worldwide prevalence of leukoplakia is 1.5- 4.3%. Leukoplakia is often associated with carcinogenic exposures, such as from use of tobacco, alcohol or betel nut. The level of risk for malignant transformation of leukoplakia is(More)
Ewing's sarcoma of the mandible occurs rarely; there have been less than 50 reported cases in the past 30 years and none of these have been in the otolaryngologic literature. They usually present in the second decade of life with pain and swelling of the soft tissue overlying the mandible. The diagnosis can only be made by an adequate mandibular biopsy,(More)
Acinic cell adenocarcinoma (ACC) is a low-grade malignant salivary neoplasm that constitutes approximately 17% of all primary salivary gland malignancies. In the head and neck region, the parotid gland is the predominant site of origin and ACC is usually more frequent in women than men. Previous radiation exposure and familial predisposition are some of the(More)
BACKGROUND Renal clear cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for about 3% of adult malignancies and about 90% of neoplasms of the kidney. It is most common in men aged 50 to 60 years old. RCC has different manifestations, including metastasis in uncommon sites and paraneoplastic syndromes. AIMS To evaluate the clinicopathological pattern of RCC. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is one of the most common head and neck carcinomas and corresponds to 95% of all oral cancers with an increasing morbidity and mortality. Its prognosis is affected by several clinicopathologic factors, one of which is pattern of invasion (POI). The histological features of OSCC may differ widely,(More)
Background: Decalcification of calcified tissues plays an important part in histological techniques. However, as it often takes a long time and some procedures decrease the staining qualities of the specimen, many attempts have been made to find methods for accelerating this procedure and ensuring good staining properties. One of the factors that regulates(More)
Fibrous dysplasia (FD) has been regarded as a developmental skeletal disorder characterized by replacement of normal bone with benign cellular fibrous connective tissue. It has now become evident that FD is a genetic disease caused by somatic activating mutation of the Gsα subunit of G protein-coupled receptor. Here we report a case of bilateral monostotic(More)
