OBJECTIVE Giant salivary gland calculi (GSGC; >15 mm) are considered rare. Only 14 well-documented cases have been reported in the literature since 1942. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the imaging modality and treatment outcome of patients with GSGC. STUDY DESIGN Six personally observed subjects with GSGC were evaluated and treated. Occlusal(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the article is to present 8 new cases of metastatic tumors occurring in the jawbones, their clinical features , diagnostic workup and management. PATIENTS AND METHODS The records of 8 patients with metastatic jaw lesions were reviewed. Demographic data, presenting symptoms, primary tumor site, radiographic findings, bone(More)
A case of Stafne bone cavity (SBC) affecting the body of the mandible of a 51-year-old female is reported. The imaging modalities included panoramic radiograph, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Panoramic radiograph and CT were able to determine the outline of the cavity and its three dimensional shape, but failed to precisely(More)
Condylar asymmetry/age relationships were investigated in a group of 23 dentate patients with an Angle's Class III malocclusion and no signs or symptoms of temporomandibular disorders and no prior orthodontic treatment. Condylar asymmetry was determined from panoramic radiographs. A graph of age versus asymmetry index was then plotted. There was no(More)
Sixty nine pediatric patients with cystic lesions of the jaws were successfully diagnosed and treated. Thirty one (45%) were dentigerous cysts (D.C.), 15 (22%) were eruption cysts (E.C.), 12 (17.3%) were traumatic bone cysts (T.B.C.), nine (13.3%) were radicular cysts (R.C.), one (1.5%) was primordial cyst (P.C.) and one (1.5%) globulomaxillary cyst(More)
Lipomas are common soft-tissue tumors but occur infrequently in the oral region. Here, we present 58 new cases of oral lipoma (OL), their clinical features, diagnostic workup, and management. The records of 58 patients with OL were reviewed. Demographic data, presenting symptoms, primary tumor site, histopathology, and clinical management were analyzed.(More)
Oral lichen planus (OLP) has a multiple-site involvement, with the buccal mucosa being the most prevalent. A possible relationship between OLP and the risk of malignancies in the involved site is documented. The characteristics of OLP have been studied in different populations; however, no similar studies have been conducted in any Jewish population. The(More)
Dentigerous cysts associated with supernumerary teeth are rare and estimated to constitute 5-6% of all dentigerous cysts. They resemble the usual dentigerous cysts in terms of sex predilection and age distribution. The vast majority, about 90%, are associated with a maxillary mesiodens. The literature is reviewed and 6 additional cases reported.
PURPOSE To review the literature on primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma (PIOSCC) associated with odontogenic cyst. METHODS All well-documented cases of PIOSCC published between 1938 and 2010 were collected. Only cases of PIOSCC arising from the lining of an odontogenic cyst, including the keratocystic odontogenic tumor, were selected. Age, sex,(More)
Angiokeratoma is a rare cutaneous lesion. It can be either a generalized systemic form, presenting as multiple asymptomatic papules on the skin, associated with metabolic diseases or a solitary cutaneous form. Oral cavity involvement is more common in the systemic form, as a part of a more generalized cutaneous disease, but very rare in the localized form(More)
