The purpose of this investigation was to determine, on the basis of ultrastructural evidence, whether large granular lymphocyte (LGL)-mediated cytotoxic activity could be identified in lesions of chronic adult periodontitis. 18 gingival papilla biopsies were obtained from 8 adult patients, each satisfying the clinical criteria for chronic adult(More)
Large arteriovenous malformations of the jaws are relatively rare, potentially life-threatening lesions. When the lesion is not suspected, extraction of teeth can be fatal. The occurrence and treatment of arteriovenous vascular communications in the head and neck region have traditionally presented most perplexing problems. Traditional treatment has usually(More)
A case of bilateral coronoid hyperplasia is presented. This is a developmental abnormality that occurs primarily in males and is characterized by progressive, asymptomatic limitation of mandibular movements. The condition is usually detected shortly after the age of puberty. A diagnosis is usually made on the basis of the history and the radiographic(More)
Histoplasmosis is a fungal disease resulting from inhalation of airborne spores of the organism Histoplasma capsulatum. The disease is endemic to the Ohio and Mississippi river valleys. Oral lesions are not common, but when present, they are usually associated with the severe disseminated form of histoplasmosis. This particular case is presented as an(More)
An unusual complication associated with the placement of osseointegrated root form implants is presented. Discussion of this complication focuses on treatment planning and anatomic considerations in the posterior mandible that impact the viability of implant placement. Vital structures in this location, including the mandibular canal, are often obscured on(More)
Recent studies have shown that bacteremia can result from the removal of intraoral sutures. The authors found that preprocedural use of an antimicrobial oral rinse (0.12 percent chlorhexidine) did not significantly reduce the incidence of bacteremia when compared with no rinse at all. Similarly, a significant relationship between bleeding and bacteremia was(More)
The authors describe an 11-year-old boy who had persistent oral lesions that clinically mimicked first-episode herpetic stomatitis. A biopsy revealed noncaseating sterile granulomas. Investigation of the small and large bowels revealed that the child had Crohn's disease. The oral lesions responded favorably to topical steroid therapy. The authors also(More)
A case of herniation of the antral membrane through a recent extraction site is presented. The lesion was initially diagnosed as a tumor by the referring dentist. Oroantral fistulas are not an uncommon finding after dental extractions. It is rare, however, to see herniation of the antral membrane with large polyps extending through the fistula into the oral(More)
Patients' abilities to complete the Trieger modification of the Bender Motor Gestalt Test as an indicator of recovery time were compared following outpatient general anesthesia, using either enflurane or isoflurane on 100 patients who had their third molars removed. The time required for patients who received enflurane to satisfactorily complete the test(More)
