Objectives: Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic neoplasm of the mandible and maxilla with various histological types and subtypes. It has been reported that some ameloblastomas could arise from dentigerous cyst walls; thus, the development of ameloblastoma from dentigerous cysts may be due to differential protein expression. Our aim was to identify a membrane protein that is differentially expressed in ameloblastomas with respect to dentigerous cysts. Read More

Paediatric unicystic ameloblastoma - A report of 2 cases.

Indian J Dent Res 2020 Nov-Dec;31(6):987-990

Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Manipal, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Karnataka, India.

Unicytic ameloblastoma is a variant of ameloblastoma encompassing about 6% of ameloblastomas. They represent cystic lesions that reveal clinical and radiographic features of a cyst, but the histopathological features demonstrate a typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining the cyst. Plexiform unicystic ameloblastoma, a variant of unicystic ameloblastoma refers to the pattern of proliferation where one or more nodules of ameloblastomatous epithelium project from the cystic lining into the lumen demonstrating an edematous plexiform pattern.

Jaffe-Lichtenstein Syndrome Associated with a Simple Bone Cyst: Unprecedented Rare Case Report.

Braz Dent J 2020 Sep-Oct;31(5):557-561

Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and Traumatology Department, UFU - Universidade Federal de Uberlândia, Uberlândia, MG, Brazil.

Lesions denominated fibro-osseous lesions of the jaw constitute a diversified group of disorders, in which the normal bone architecture is replaced by fibroblasts, collagen fibers and immature bone. At present, the World Health Organization recognizes four variants of these lesions, namely: bone-cement dysplasia, fibrous dysplasia, ossifying fibroma and Familial gigantiform cementoma. Fibrous dysplasia may present in the monostotic form, affecting one single bone or an isolated craniofacial region; and in the Polyostotic form, involving two or more bones of the skeleton, and eventual association with syndromic conditions.

Imaging Characteristic of 11 Lesions of Odontogenic Keratocyst in the Indian Subpopulation: A Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Experience.

Contemp Clin Dent 2020 Jan-Mar;11(1):20-27. Epub 2020 Jul 13.

Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, JSS Dental College and Hospital, JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research, Mysore, Karnataka, India.
