The head and neck region constitutes the second most common site of involvement for synovial sarcoma, accounting for up to 10% of all cases. Intraoral synovial sarcoma is rare; in fact, only 29 cases have been reported. We describe 2 additional cases occurring in the floor of the mouth and the retromolar area. In addition, we have reviewed the(More)
The oral inflammatory dermatoses is a term used to describe a number of predominantly immune-mediated disorders: lichen planus (LP), erythema multiforme (EM), the vesiculobullous diseases pemphigoid (MMP), pemphigus (PV) and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA). These conditions are characterized by frequent involvement of the oral mucosa and often(More)
Herpes zoster is a common viral infection, the oral soft tissue manifestations of which are widely known and recognized. Reports of spontaneous tooth exfoliation and jaw osteonecrosis following herpes zoster infection in the distribution of the trigeminal nerve are extremely infrequent and sporadic, with only 39 cases being reported in the literature. We(More)
Calretinin is a 29-kDa calcium-binding protein abundantly expressed in central and peripheral neural tissues. The aim here was to determine its expression during various stages of odontogenesis. Five categories of embryonic (E) and postnatal (P) rats at various ages (E17, E18, E20, P0, and P7), both male and female, were used to represent the various stages(More)
OBJECTIVES In this retrospective study, we defined the clinicopathologic characteristics of oral Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) and determined the presence of human herpesvirus 8 in the oral lesions in a group of South African patients. These results were compared with similar data from patients in developed countries. STUDY DESIGN Eighty-one cases of oral KS were(More)
Cemento-osseous dysplasia is a fairly common lesion of the jaws originating from the elements of the periodontal ligament. Most lesions do not have a hereditary basis, however a few familial cases have been documented. This is the first report of the florid form of cemento-osseous dysplasia in an African family. The mother, son and one daughter exhibited(More)
AIMS Calretinin is a 29-kDa calcium-binding protein which is expressed in the central and peripheral nervous systems as well as in many other normal and pathological human tissues. The objective of this study was to determine whether calretinin was expressed in the epithelium of ameloblastomas. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-seven cases of unicystic(More)
The manifestation of metastatic malignant disease in the oral cavity can present in a number of ways and may mimic benign conditions. This case reports a rare presentation from a metastasis of a hepatocellular carcinoma that had invaded the attached gingiva of the maxilla and which on initial inspection could have been misdiagnosed as a pyogenic granuloma.(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims at contributing to the definitive diagnosis of ossifying fibroma (OF) based on histomorphological features. The study also aims to determine some demographic features of OF, common sites of occurrence and to determine whether behavior correlates well with the histomorphological variations seen in the lesion. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
A case of an unusually large mandibular ameloblastoma is reported in which standard radiologic examination failed to provide adequate visualization of the tumor's limits because of overlapping structures and the presence of compound shadows. Computed tomography imaging and three-dimensional reconstruction proved invaluable in the treatment planning of this(More)
