Nineteen patients with systemic sclerosis, including two with CREST syndrome variant, were clinically evaluated for oral and gingival manifestations of their disease. Subjectively over 50% complained of xerostomia, limited opening, recurrent "mouth sores" and dysphagia. Four patients indicated that they had been refused dental care due to limited(More)
The myofacial pain-dysfunction syndrome and atypical facial pain are the most prevalent chronic pain disorders of the facial region. Previously, the myofacial pain-dysfunction syndrome included all TMJ/masticatory muscle pain, jaw dysfunction, and joint clicking. We have segregated two major subgroups subsumed within this diagnostic classification and have(More)
The lifetime economic costs of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were estimated in a cohort with initial onset of RA in 1977. These costs included medical care expenses as well as the costs associated with illness-related work loss, overall and by age/sex category. The present value of the lifetime economic costs of RA was estimated to be $20,412/case in 1977(More)
Correlations have been reported between cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced gingival overgrowth (OG) and plaque-induced gingivitis, duration of CsA therapy, and blood and tissue drug levels. We evaluated the relative importance of such factors using data from a 2-year, double-blind study of CsA therapy in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Ninety subjects (40(More)
The purpose of the present study was to describe coronal suture pathology and cross sectional synostotic progression in an inbred strain of rabbits with congenital craniosynostosis. Calvaria from 102 perinatal rabbits (39 unaffected; 63 bilateral or unilateral synostosis) were collected at fetal days 21 (n = 12), 25 (n = 20), 27 (n = 22), 30 (term) (n =(More)
Objective: To assess health care providers (HCP) knowledge and practices regarding folic acid (FA) use for neural tube defect (NTD) prevention. Methods: Two identical surveys were conducted among 611 obstetricians/gynecologists (OB/GYNs) and family/general physicians (FAM/GENs) (2002), and 500 physician assistants (PAs), nurse practitioners (NPs), certified(More)
Forty-one histologically documented instances of focal sclerosing osteomyelitis and focal periapical osteopetrosis have been evaluated for radiomorphologic characteristics. These reactive lesions exhibit five distinct patterns that include periapical focal opacifications, target lesions, radiolucencies, multiconfluent configurations, and opacifications with(More)
Oral "hairy" leukoplakia (OHL) is a white lesion of the oral mucosa, usually located on the lateral tongue among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-risk patients. The lesion has been reported to be associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and human papillomavirus (HPV). Twenty surgical biopsy specimens were(More)
Thirty-six cases of oral condyloma planus (hairy leukoplakia) occurring in homosexual men are reported. The average age is 36.6 years, with a range from 24 to 51 years, and the disorder exhibits a predilection for the fourth decade. More than 86% of the cases are localized to the tongue (72% lateral border, 14% ventral surface). Microscopically, surface(More)
