Schwannoma (also known as neurilemmoma, peripheral glioma and peripheral nerve sheath tumor) is a common, histologically distinctive, benign, usually encapsulated, peripheral nerve tumor of Schwann cell origin. Schwannomas can appear anywhere in the body, but are more frequently reported in the head and neck with an incidence of 25-48% in maxillofacial(More)
Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a rare and locally invasive benign neoplasm (comprising of 3-6% of all odontogenic tumors) found exclusively in the jaws. OM commonly occurs in the second and third decades, and the mandible is involved more commonly than the maxilla. The lesion often grows without symptoms and presents as a painless swelling. The radiographic(More)
Teratomas are complex lesions composed of diverse tissues from all 3 germinal cell layers and may exhibit variable levels of maturity. Head and neck teratomas are most commonly cervical with the oropharynx (epignathus) being the second commonest location. In this article, clinical presentation, behaviour and associated significance of head and neck(More)
Maxillofacial presentations in patients with multiple myeloma are not uncommon, but multiple myeloma is often overlooked. Because the symptoms are various, it is very difficult to diagnose multiple myeloma in the oral and maxillofacial region. On the basis of the pathologic and clinical findings, the patient was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Hematologic(More)
OBJECTIVE Bears are strong and agile wild animals that defend themselves, their young ones and their territory, if they feel threatened. Conflicts between humans and bears are common in bear-prevalent areas of the world. Our valley, which is surrounded all around by forests, is a habitat for black bears (U. thiabetanus) only. Maulings inflicted by these(More)
Since 1890, when Miller first observed microorganisms associated with pulp tissue, microorganisms have been implicated in infections of endodontic origin. Microbes seeking to establish in the root canal must leave the nutritionally rich and diverse environment of the oral cavity, breach enamel, invade dentine, overwhelm the immune response of the pulp and(More)
Odontomas are relatively common odontogenic hamartomatous malformations, generally asymptomatic, and are rarely diagnosed before the second decade of life. The most common symptom is an impacted permanent teeth or retained deciduous teeth. The etiology of the odontoma is yet not clear. During its development, enamel and dentin can be deposited in such a way(More)
Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOD) is a rare developmental disorder of the maxilla, characterized by variability of its clinical and radiological features and may mimic other fibro-osseous lesions. Clinically, the disorder is often diagnosed in early childhood due to a unilateral buccolingual expansion of the posterior alveolar process, gingival(More)
Introduction: Hepatitis B and C virus (HBV and HCV) infections are considered an occupational risk for dental professionals and other health care workers. It is a risk that includes the possibility of dental personnel getting HBV or HCV infection from an infected patient and the potential transmission of HBV to susceptible patients from infected dental(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignant neoplasm of plasma cells that is characterized by the production of pathologic M proteins, bone lesions, kidney disease, hyperviscosity, and hypercalcemia. MM occurs more frequently in patients between 50 and 80 years of age, with a mean age of 60 years and man are more affected than women (1). Systemic symptoms are due(More)
