OBJECTIVES This study was undertaken to detect the gene polymorphism of detoxification enzymes and estimate the antioxidant enzyme status in patients with oral cancer, oral leukoplakia and oral submucous fibrosis (OSF). MATERIALS AND METHODS The GSTM1 and GSTT1 gene polymorphism was evaluated using polymerase chain reaction; the antioxidant enzyme was(More)
Rabson-Mendenhall syndrome is a rare, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by insulin resistance syndrome, growth retardation, coarse and senile-looking faces, mental precocity, early dentition, and pineal hyperplasia. Mutations of the insulin receptor gene affecting insulin action appear to be the basic mechanism underlying this syndrome. We report(More)
AIM To highlight the importance of considering tuberculosis in the differential diagnosis even in the absence of confirmation from several investigations and diagnostic aides. BACKGROUND Tuberculosis is a common infectious granulomatous disease caused by various strains of mycobacteria. An oral lesion when seen in association with tuberculosis is very(More)
Odontogenic tumors are a group of heterogeneous lesions, features of which have been catalogued for several decades. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a relatively rare and distinct odontogenic tumor that is exclusively odontogenic epithelium in origin. Although considerable number of reports is available with regard to the clinical and histological(More)
Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a neurocutaneous syndrome consisting of port wine stain (facial nevus flammeus), congenital glaucoma and underlying anomalous leptomeningeal venous plexus with lack of normal cortical venous drainage. Neuromuscular, ocular, dermatologic and oral manifestations are variously present with this syndrome. The syndrome presents(More)
PURPOSE Pineal gland calcification has been proposed to play a role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease. This study evaluated the prevalence and extent of pineal gland calcification in cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans of patients referred for dental implant therapy who could possibly be a vulnerable group for this condition. MATERIALS AND(More)
Skeletal components play significant role in sex determination in forensic and anthropological fields. Skull is considered second best, after pelvis, in determination of sex. Methods based on morphological characteristics and morphometry are already in use with reasonable accuracy. Standardized radiographic techniques like cephalometry have advantages of(More)
Orofaciodigital (OFD) syndrome is a generic name for a variety of different but possibly related genetic disorders that result in malformations of the mouth, teeth, jaw, facial bones, hands, and feet and are therefore categorized as oroacral disorders. Nine subtypes of OFD syndromes have been identified. OFD type V is known as Thurston syndrome, of which(More)
