This article reports on a case presenting with a rare syndrome characterized by enamel dysplasia and multiple unerupted teeth with large solid fibrous pericoronal lesions manifesting with odontogenic fibroma-like features. Our case shows in addition to these findings an anterior open bite malocclusion and gingival overgrowths. These overgrowths exhibit the(More)
We report 2 cases of hydatid cysts occurring in the submandibular gland and buccal submucosa, respectively. Our first case occurred in the submandibular salivary gland of a 20-year-old woman and the second involved the buccal submucosa of a 6-year-old boy. Both diagnoses were made after the excision of the lesions. Both patients were evaluated after(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to analyze the clinical and radiographic features of central odontogenic myxomas (OM) of the jaws diagnosed over 23 years in a black South African patient sample. STUDY DESIGN Records of 30 cases of OMs with radiographs of diagnostic quality were retrieved from 52 cases of histopathologically verified OMs from the(More)
BACKGROUND Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is the most common human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated neoplasm (HIV-KS). Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) results in a decrease in the incidence and prevalence of HIV-KS as well as in clinical improvement. However, in a subset of subjects who are HIV seropositive, KS may recrudesce early following the(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus/tuberculosis (HIV/TB) co-infected subjects demonstrate enhanced HIV replication and plasma viremia; CD4+ T-cell depletion; morbidity and mortality; and susceptibility to secondary bacterial and fungal infections compared to subjects solely infected with HIV. As the incidence of HIV/TB infection has been increasing, one would(More)
Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is a rare neoplasm of possibly neural crest origin, and it predominantly occurs in the premaxillas of infants less than 12 months old. Generally, the treatment of this benign pigmented lesion is conservative surgical excision. Long-term follow-up is imperative inasmuch as local recurrence and malignant(More)
Myeloma is characterized by monoclonal bone marrow plasmacytosis, the presence of M-protein in serum and/or in urine and osteolytic bone lesions. HIV-seropositive subjects with myeloma are younger at the time of diagnosis of the tumour and usually the myeloma has a more aggressive clinical course than it does in HIV-seronegative subjects. A case of an(More)
The adenomatoid odontogenic tumour (AOT) is a benign lesion of odontogenic origin. It is a slow growing tumour that results in a painless expansion of the jaws. This is a retrospective review of the demographic, clinical and radiographic features of AOTs diagnosed in a black South African population over 20 years. Of the 746 odontogenic tumours diagnosed,(More)
A 52-year-old patient presented with an orbital swelling and exophthalmos that enlarged over a period of about 40 years. The clinical examination showed massive exophthalmos and ptosis of the right eye without diplopia. The radiological investigation (MRI, CT and ultrasound) showed an unclear intraorbital mass with erosion of the orbital floor, infraorbital(More)
