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)
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)
Nodular fasciitis of the oral mucosa is a rare lesion. The present article describes an additional case and discusses the difficulties in the histologic diagnosis. The final diagnosis is based on immunohistochemistry and electron microscopic morphology. Nodular fasciitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of swellings in the oral mucosa.
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)
The effect of salivary gland hypofunction (SGH) on oral wound healing is not well established. The present study evaluates the healing of extraction wounds in a SGH rat model. Experimental rats underwent removal of the submandibular and sublingual glands and ligation of the parotid ducts. Maxillary left first molars were extracted and healing was determined… (More)
Fracture of the mandible during exodontia is fortunately rare, but is under-reported. A review identified 189 documented cases of iatrogenic fractures of the mandible (IFM) associated with the removal of teeth. The reasons for its occurrence are thought to be multifactorial and include age, sex, degree of tooth impaction, relative volume of the tooth in the… (More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of fibrin sealant in patients on oral anticoagulant therapy undergoing oral surgery with varying degrees of surgical trauma and various intensities of anticoagulation. STUDY DESIGN A consecutive series of 69 subjects on oral anticoagulant therapy undergoing oral surgery without changing… (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.
The results of cytogenetic analysis of a solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the oral cavity in a 43-year-old man is reported. The abnormal cells carried a complex translocation with the karyotype 46,XY [15 cells]/46,XYt(1;17;18)(p13;q11.2;q21)[5 cells]. This is the first case reporting chromosomal aberrations in an oral SFT.
Peripheral ameloblastoma (PA) is a rare, extraosseous odontogenic tumor with histologic features similar to those of the more common intraosseous ameloblastoma. The exact nature and tumorigenesis of PA are unclear. Although there are some reports on the cytogenetics of intraosseous ameloblastoma, to the authors' knowledge, there are no studies on the… (More)
