Osteopetrosis represents a heterogeneous group of rare, hereditary bone disorders with variable clinical features and an increase in bone density. The common clinical findings that usually lead to the detection of the disease are fractures and osteomyelitis of the mandible.

The existing scheme for result verification in a distributed grid system is replication. This scheme suffers from collusion and redundant execution of the jobs leading to high resource consumption. In order to combat these issues, a scheme called quizzing is proposed in the three-tier grid architecture. Some tasks of given jobs itself are given as quiz(More)

Soft tissue sarcomas comprise a group of histologically diverse malignant neoplasms arising from mesenchymal cell lines. Among these, leiomyosarcomas are sarcomas exhibiting smooth muscle differentiation. Occurrence of this neoplasm in the oral cavity is exceedingly rare and its presentation is unusual in children. We present a case report of leiomyosarcoma(More)
