Intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma (IMEC) is a rare neoplasm of the jawbones. Although hypotheses focused on the malignant transformation of the epithelial mucosa of odontogenic cysts or ectopic salivary gland tissue have been suggested, the etiology of the disease is still unclear. It is more frequent in middle-aged individuals, has a slight female predilection, and is more common in the mandible than in the maxilla. Read More

When brain imaging is performed as a first-line investigation for headaches and no intracranial abnormality is found, attention should always be paid to potential non-CNS causes of headache including paranasal sinus inflammatory, infectious, and occasionally malignant disease, and also to odontogenic sinusitis. Non-enhanced CT (NECT) head offers an initial evaluation of these areas which may be an unexpected source of symptomatology. Further imaging may then be required with either dedicated sinus NECT [particularly if surgical intervention is necessary for paranasal sinus disease], a contrast-enhanced (CECT) head and sinus CT, or an MRI if intracranial complications of sinonasal disease or acute invasive fungal sinusitis is suspected.

Objective: Ghost cell odontogenic carcinoma (GCOC) is a rare tumor that can sometimes occur from dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT).Study Design: We report a case of GCOC arising from DGCT that underwent long-term follow-up with multiple biopsies. The biopsy specimens were analyzed using a next-generation sequencing cancer panel. Read More

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to identify non-endodontic periapical lesions (NPLs) mimicking endodontic pathosis most frequently encountered by clinicians.Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on biopsies obtained from 2015-2020 at Texas A&M College of Dentistry oral pathology laboratory. The online database was screened for cases submitted as suspected endodontic pathology using specific keywords. Read More
