The frequency of accessory mental foramina (AMF) was studied in four population groups: 20th century Asian Indians, African Americans and American Whites, and Pre-Columbian Nazca Indians. AMF were found less frequently in the American White and Asian Indian populations than in the other groups (American White, 1.4%; Asian Indian, 1.5%; African American,(More)
The retromolar foramen (RMF) was found to occur in eighteen of 234 adult human mandibles studied (7.7%). No statistically significant difference was found between left and right sides or between sexes. A statistical correlation was made between the occurrence of the RMF and accessory mandibular foramina, accessory mental foramina, mandibular third molars,(More)
A clinical and histopathologic analysis of 464 oral squamous cell papillomas is presented. Data on age, sex, race, location, clinical appearance, duration, recurrence, and clinical diagnosis are reviewed. One hundred seventy-six of the 464 specimens were examined for hyperkeratosis, character and amount of inflammatory infiltrate, and evidence of cellular(More)
BACKGROUND Between March and May 1998, there was an outbreak of a clinically distinct skin eruption on the soles of the feet of children who used a community wading pool. METHODS We reviewed the medical records of 40 children in whom this syndrome developed between March and May 1998. We treated 17 children and advised the attending physicians on the care(More)
The occurrence of retromolar foramina (RMF) was examined in a sample of dry skulls (African American n = 249; Causcasian n = 226) to consider the potential clinical impact. A prevalence rate of 7.8% of RMF was found. There were no statistical differences based on race or gender. The prevalence may contribute to the explanation of a portion of inferior(More)
An unusual case of odontogenic carcinoma with dentinoid is presented and discussed. This case is the first reported to show this peculiar histologic picture. The lesion recurred following what was deemed adequate surgical excision from both the clinical and histologic viewpoints. Adequate therapy and follow-up for such lesions is thus stressed.
The purpose of this study was to determine if there were differences in the angle of eminentia of two 20th century populations based on race, age, gender, and number of teeth and whether there was asymmetry of the angles of eminentia. The sample included dry skulls from the Hamann-Todd Osteological collection as follows: 80 African-Americans (AA, 53 males(More)
The morphology of toxoplasma and its interaction with the cellular elements of the brain were studied in a patient who died of extensive cerebral toxoplasmosis superimposed on Hodgkin's disease. The cerebral lesions were devoid of inflammatory cellular response and contained numerous organisms mostly in isolated multiplying forms in neurons, glia and(More)
