AIMS AND OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of Primary Hyperparathyroidism on oral cavity in a symptomatic contemporary Indian population by taking note of the following parameters: (1) Radiological alteration of lamina dura, (2) mandibular cortical width, (3) prevalence of brown tumor, and (4) mandibular tori. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-six patients of Primary(More)
The classical features of superior orbital fissure syndrome arise due to compression of all or some anatomical structures passing through the fissure. A conservative approach is advocated in this condition unless there is a bony impingement of the neuronal structure and/or simultaneous compression of optic nerve leading to blindness or diminished vision.(More)

AIMS AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this prospective study was to compare the postoperative results of mandibular angle fracture cases treated by open reduction and internal fixation wherein the third molar in the line of fracture was preserved in one group while it was extracted in the second group. MATERIALS AND METHODS Group I consisted of 30 patients in(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prevalence, clinical features, diagnostic laboratory values and treatment outcome of giant cell lesions (brown tumors) associated with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) in oral and maxillofacial region. STUDY DESIGN A 5 year retrospective data was analyzed wherein all histopathologically proven cases of giant cell(More)
Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an uncommon tumor of odontogenic origin composed of odontogenic epithelium in a variety of histoarchitectural patterns. Most cases are in females and have a striking tendency to occur in the anterior maxilla. However, AOT of the maxillary antrum is extremely rare. A 25-year-old female presented with a large radiolucent(More)
Long-standing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation is an uncommon condition, and due to its rarity, no definitive guidelines have been developed for its management. Various reduction techniques ranging from indirect traction techniques to direct exposure of the TMJ have been used. Indirect traction techniques for reduction may fail in long-standing(More)
This paper highlights a rare case of melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy involving the anterior maxilla in a 3-month-old infant. The tumor was excised completely, and the defect was reconstructed with a bilateral buccal pad of fat. The patient has been followed for 2 years without any evidence of recurrence. We propose that for similar anterior(More)
Fungal infection of the paranasal sinuses is an increasingly recognized entity, both in normal and immunocompromised individuals. The recent increase in mycotic nasal and paranasal infections is due to both improved diagnostic research and an increase in the conditions that favor fungal infection. Although fungal infections of the paranasal sinus are(More)
