Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is a rare, benign mixed odontogenic tumor. It occurs exclusively as an intraosseous lesion. It usually has a slow growth and is seen in children and young adults. A painless swelling is the most common clinical sign. Radiographically, ameloblastic fibro-odontoma appears as a circumscribed radiolucency which may contain radiopaque(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The product of bcl-2 gene, bcl-2 protein, an anti-apoptotic protein, is known to be over-expressed in potentially malignant disorders and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity. The aim of this study is to compare the topographical aspect and degree of bcl-2 over-expression in potentially malignant disorders including(More)
It has been pointed out that Parathyroid Hormone related Protein (PTHrP) secreted by the developing enamel epithelium targets receptors in overlying bone, thereby activating bone resorption and allowing tooth eruption. Accordingly, it is conceivable that ameloblastoma, which to a degree recapitulates certain characteristics of enamel epithelium, would also(More)
BACKGROUND Demonstrate the expression of CD105 (angiogenetic marker) in ameloblastoma (AM), keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) and dentigerous cyst (DC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Assessment of microvessel density (MVD) in 70 cases, including 20 KCOT, 20 DC and 20 solid AMs. Assessment of MVD should be done as the mean number of microvessels per(More)
