Here is a(More)
Generalized diminished root formation is a rare condition leading to early loss of teeth. This report describes an unusual case of generalized short roots associated with microdontia, taurodontism of posterior teeth, and multiple dens invaginatus along with short stature in a 20-year-old man, who had lost several teeth because of spontaneous exfoliation.
Background. Oral submucous fibrosis (OSF), a precancerous condition, is characterized by abnormal accumulation of collagen fibers in oral submucosa. Vimentin is a Class 2 intermediate filament (IF) and primarily expressed in cells of mesenchymal origin. Vimentin is also found to be involved in cell growth, cell cycling, and tumour differentiation.(More)
Adenomatoid hyperplasia (AH) is an uncommon, non-neoplastic swelling on the palate caused due to hyperplasia of the mucinous acini. The lesion clinically presents as a sessile tumor-like nodule resembling pleomorphic adenoma. Histopathologic findings include lobules of enlarged mucinous acini which are filled with secretory granules. The nuclei are squeezed(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES The present study was taken up to evaluate the AgNOR counts in the buccal mucosa cells of gutkha chewers and compare that with the sex-matched controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS In all, 100 gutkha chewers and 50 sex-matched non-chewers (controls) were chosen. None of the patients in both groups had any clinical oral lesions or systemic(More)
OBJECTIVE Computer-assisted image analysis was attempted to ascertain, if any of the previously described histologic features along with argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions (AgNORs) could be used to determine the aggressiveness of the central giant cell granuloma of the jaws (CGCG), peripheral giant cell granuloma of the oral cavity (PGCG) and giant(More)
