The importance of both the CYP1A1 exon 7 (ile:val) and GSTM1 (0/0) polymorphisms in oral cancer susceptibility was assessed by examining polymorphic prevalences in 135 patients with oral cancer and 135 noncancer controls frequency-matched by age at diagnosis (+/- 5 years), race, sex, and institute of patient recruitment. The prevalence of the GSTM1 (0/0)(More)
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma rarely involves the oral cavity. Only 14 detailed cases of oral cutaneous T-cell lymphoma have been described in the English-language literature; this report describes eight additional cases observed among 824 patients evaluated at our cutaneous T-cell lymphoma center since 1968. Oral involvement occurs late in the course of(More)
Five cases of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the parotid gland were studied ultrastructurally. In addition to epidermoid cells (tonofilament-rich) and mucous cells, three forms of intermediate cells were identified: mitochondria-rich cells, glycogen-rich cells, and ribosome-rich cells. Transitional forms of all cell types were observed. Ultrastructurally,(More)
A 45-year-old woman had a mass in the left side of the tongue. Histologic examination of the tumor revealed it to be an extraskeletal osteogenic sarcoma. Pulmonary metastases were seen on admission. The patient had a rapid downhill course and died. Extraskeletal osteogenic sarcomas are well-recognized albeit rare neoplasms. In a search of the literature we(More)
Disfiguring facial edema and elevated intracranial pressure often accompany ligation and excision of the internal jugular veins (IJV) during simultaneous or staged bilateral radical neck dissection. To minimize this morbidity, unilateral reconstruction of the IJV was undertaken at the time of second-side neck dissection in 11 patients. Five patients(More)
Clinical and pathologic findings of four cases of rhabdomyosarcoma of the oral soft tissues are described that include findings from immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy. Three cases occurred in children under 16 years of age and one in a 22-year-old. Included is a brief discussion on reported gene abnormalities that may contribute to neoplastic(More)
