    Spontaneous regeneration of bone tissue after mandibular resection is rare in adults, although it does often take place in children. Periosteum conservation appears to play a major role in this healing process. We here report regarding a 5-year-old boy who exhibited a large mandibular trabecular juvenile ossifying fibroma.

    One of the rarest entities of fibro-osseous lesions that arise within the craniofacial bones is Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF). It is an intraosseous expansile lesion of the jaw that imitate odontogenic lesions. WHO has described two distinct histopathological variants of JOF; trabecular and psammomatoid. Read More

    Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma of the external anal sphincter: a case report.

    Department of Surgery, Hsinchu Cathay General Hospital, Jhonghua Rd, Hsinchu, Taiwan.
    Background: Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a rare soft tissue tumor that has a tendency to grow in the deep soft tissue of the trunk and extremities. Despite its benign appearance, the tumor has a high recurrence rate and metastatic potential. LGFMS in the perineal space is rare, and only a few cases have been reported. Read More

    A case of primordial odontogenic tumor: A new entity in the latest WHO classification (2017).

    Primordial odontogenic tumor (POT) is a rare lesion in the jaw which has been included as a new entity of benign mixed epithelial and mesenchymal odontogenic tumour in the latest World Health Organization (WHO) classification (2017). Only seven cases have been reported. It typically occurs in the posterior mandible. Read More

    Differential diagnosis of periapical cyst using collagen birefringence pattern of the cyst wall.
    Restor Dent Endod 2017 May 9;42(2):111-117. Epub 2017 Feb 9.
    Department of Conservative Dentistry, Gangneung-Wonju National University College of Dentistry, Gangneung, Korea.
    Objectives: Periapical lesions, including periapical cyst (PC), periapical granuloma (PG), and periapical abscess (PA), are frequently affected by chemical/physical damage during root canal treatment or severe bacterial infection, and thus, the differential diagnosis of periapical lesions may be difficult due to the presence of severe inflammatory reaction. The aim of this study was to make differential diagnosis among PC, PG, and PA under polarizing microscope.

    Materials And Methods: The collagen birefringence patterns of 319 cases of PC (= 122), PG (= 158), and PA (= 39) obtained using a polarizing microscope were compared. Read More

    Metastasis of a Renal Collecting Duct Adenocarcinoma to the Oral Cavity After Tooth Extraction.
