Hajdu-Cheney syndrome (acro-osteolysis) is a rare disorder of bone metabolism characterized by progressive lytic lesions in a number of bones. Constant features of this condition include an osteoporotic skeleton, acro-osteolysis, and a shortened lower third of face. The purpose of this report was to focus on the craniofacial and oral manifestations of the(More)
The Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome is characterized by striking craniofacial features, microcephaly, mental deficiency, growth retardation, 2-3 syndactyly of the feet, and genital malformations. We present a patient and discuss dentofacial aspects of the syndrome.
The type and the sequence of dental and dentoalveolar discrepancies accompanying Class I were investigated in this study in a sample of 8.018 children with dental and dentoalveolar discrepancies was found to be significant reaching the 43.8%. Orthodontic treatment is essential in a 20.2% of the cases. The most commonly observed discrepancies were found to(More)
Extra-articular temporomandibular bony ankylosis between the coronoid process and the base of the skull is quite uncommon. In this paper we present a case of fusion of the right coronoid to the maxilla and sphenoid bone in an 18-year-old male. This bony ankylosis was the result of surgical removal of an odontogenic tumour from the right mandibular ramus(More)
In this study the ten factors which compose the Ricketts' summary analysis were measured on 81 lateral skull radiographs of adult Greeks (41 males and 40 females) with normal occlusion and harmonious face to establish cephalometric standards. The mean value, standard deviation, standard error of the mean, minimum and maximum values as well as the range of(More)
The purpose of this cephalometric investigation is to find out the dental and dentofacial relationships of the incisors with the skeletal vertical type of the face. The material of this study consisted of 200 lateral skull radiographs of an equal number of adult Greeks with normal occlusion and harmonious face. Ten cephalometric variables were measured and(More)
PURPOSE General consensus has been reached on extracting mandibular third molars when they are involved in pathologic processes. However, early extraction is advisable in cases of eruption disturbances of the mandibular second molar, before or during orthodontic treatment. METHODS Thirty-two patients with early extraction of the mandibular third molar(More)
The Nager syndrome is a rare condition associated with craniofacial malformations such as micrognathia, zygomatic hypoplasia, cleft palate, and preaxial limb deformities. This report features a case of the Nager syndrome occurring in a 4-year-old boy showing microdontia, thumb duplication and radioulnar synostosis, and ventricular septum defect,(More)
In this paper the essential knowledge for the overall tracing of the postero--anterior cephalometric radiographs has been discussed. Special attention has been paid to the structures of the facial skeleton and their radiographic description as well as to the methodology of an effective tracing. This knowledge could be very useful to a better study of the(More)
