Mucosal Melanoma of the Hard Palate: Surgical Treatment and Reconstruction.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 03 24;18(7). Epub 2021 Mar 24.

School of Medicine, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, 20100 Milano, Italy.

Mucosal melanomas of the head and neck region are uncommon pathologies that can affect the oral cavity, and are characterized by a high rate of mortality. Considering the lack of knowledge regarding risk and prognostic factors, current best clinical practice is represented by a large surgical excision with disease-free margins, eventually associated with a reconstructive flap. Indeed, given the frequent necessity of postoperative radiotherapy and fast healing process, a reconstruction of the surgical gap is advisable. Read More

Solitary Neurofibroma of the Hard Palate: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Feb 22;22:e929674. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Dental and Oral Medical Center, Kurume University School of Medicine, Kurume, Fukuoka, Japan.

BACKGROUND Neurofibromas are benign tumors of neurological origin caused by the proliferation of Schwann cells and fibroblasts; they often occur in the skin and nerves as a symptom of von Recklinghausen disease. Solitary neurofibromas are also known to occur on their own, but solitary development in the hard palate is extremely rare and difficult to distinguish from schwannomas. The neural origin of solitary neurofibromas is also difficult to determine intraoperatively, and there have been no reports that clearly identify the neural origin of neurofibromas in the hard palate.
