OBJECTIVE Temporal bone squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) accounts for less than 2% of all head and neck tumors. Its biologic parameters should be investigated because clinicopathologic factors are often inaccurate for the purposes of its prognosis. CD105 is a proliferation-associated protein expressed in angiogenic endothelial cells and a potential prognostic(More)
Lichen planus of the oral mucosa (OLP) is characterized by lymphocytic infiltrate in the epithelial layer and basal cells lysis. Some studies have suggested a high incidence of oral squamous cell carcinoma in patients with OLP that has been implicated as a premalignant lesion. We describe 19 cases of OLP, and the immunopathologic basis for OLP, its(More)
OBJECTIVE Temporal bone squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) accounts for less than 0.2% of all head and neck tumors. Although some progress has been made in treating this aggressive tumor, the prognosis in advanced cases remains poor. More effective therapeutic strategies need to be considered, including receptor-mediated carcinoma-targeted therapy.(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the pattern of nasal mucosal involvement in patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). The authors selected patients affected by SLE with a symptomatology based on bad nasal breathing, in absence of anatomical deformities of the nose. Specimens representing eighteen histological sections of nasal mucosa were(More)
The perilymphatic fistula is constituted by an anomalous connection between the perilymphatic space and the middle ear. The principal accuses are to be sought in the intracranial pressure increasement, cranial traumas, barotraumas, congenital anomalies, trans-tympanic traumas, etc. Stapes's dislocation in the vestibule and the fracture of the platina are(More)
Dermoid cysts are for the most part benign neoformations most likely deriving from ectodermic differentiation of totipotent cells. Although localization on the floor of the mouth has been described for more than a century it is still reported as rare and can give rise to problems in differential diagnosis. This work presents a case of dermoid cyst of the(More)
