Ameloblastic Fibro-Odontoma.

J Dent Child (Chic) 2018 Sep;85(3):143-146

Consultant, in the Department of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup, U.K.

The ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) is a rare, mixed odontogenic tumor exhibiting the histological characters of the ameloblastic fibroma and complex odontoma.

S100 Proteins as Biomarkers in Risk Estimations for Malignant Transformation in Oral Lesions.

Methods Mol Biol 2019 ;1929:763-771

Department of Periodontology, Operative and Preventive Dentistry, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

Oncologic relevant members of S100 proteins are described as promising biomarkers in molecular pathology for risk estimation in oral neoplasia exhibiting different stages of malignancy: gingiva as healthy tissue, irritation fibroma as benign, leukoplakia as precancerous, and oral squamous cell carcinoma as malignant entity. Gene expression levels of S100A4 (metastasin), S100A7 (psoriasin), S100A8 (calgranulin A), and S100A9 (calgranulin B) were analyzed using quantitative RT-PCR. In addition, immunohistochemistry-based microscopy was used to examine cellular localization and distribution of these biomarkers in tissue sections. Read More

Non-HPV Papillary Lesions of the Oral Mucosa: Clinical and Histopathologic Features of Reactive and Neoplastic Conditions.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Mar 29;13(1):71-79. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Stomatology, Faculty of Dental Medicine, Université de Montréal Montreal, Centre-ville station, PO Box 6128, Montreal, QC, H3C 3J7, Canada.

Excluding human papillomavirus (HPV)-driven conditions, oral papillary lesions consist of a variety of reactive and neoplastic conditions and, on occasion, can herald internal malignancy or be part of a syndrome. The objectives of this paper are to review the clinical and histopathological features of the most commonly encountered non-HPV papillary conditions of the oral mucosa. These include normal anatomic structures (retrocuspid papillae, lingual tonsils), reactive lesions (hairy tongue, inflammatory papillary hyperplasia), neoplastic lesions (giant cell fibroma), lesions of unknown pathogenesis (verruciform xanthoma, spongiotic gingival hyperplasia) and others associated with syndromes (for instance Cowden syndrome) or representing paraneoplastic conditions (malignant acanthosis nigricans).

Authors:
Sasha J Betz

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Mar 29;13(1):80-90. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Division of Anatomic Pathology, Naval Medical Center San Diego, 34800 Bob Wilson Drive, San Diego, CA, 92134-5000, USA.

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are causative of a group of clinically papillary lesions. The HPV-related lesions of the oral cavity include squamous papilloma, condyloma acuminatum, verruca vulgaris, and multifocal epithelial hyperplasia. Benign entities, such as verruciform xanthoma or giant cell fibroma, as well as malignancies, such as papillary squamous cell carcinoma and verrucous carcinoma, may be considered in the clinical and/or histologic differential diagnoses of these lesions.

Bringing benign ectomesenchymal odontogenic tumours to the lab: An in vitro study using an organotypic culture model.

J Oral Pathol Med 2019 Feb 2;48(2):174-179. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Pathology, Basic Sciences Institute, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais-UFMG, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Background: Benign neoplasms exhibit most of the cellular phenomena considered hallmarks of cancer, except the capacity to metastasize. Thus, the elucidation of the mechanisms associated with the progression of benign neoplasms may complement and clarify the mechanisms involved in carcinogenesis. Benign odontogenic tumours often result in facial deformities and morbidities, and have complex pathogenesis, mainly due to the diversity of interactions between the odontogenic epithelium and the ectomesenchyme.

Surgical correction of residual facial deformity following conservative excision of a giant maxillary ossifying fibroma: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(47):e13186

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Rationale: Ossifying fibroma (OF) is a benign fibro-osseous lesion that can develop in the oral and maxillofacial region. OF is more common in females and has a marked predilection for the mandible, occurring rarely in the maxilla. Lesions grow slowly and are usually asymptomatic until growth produces an obvious swelling, pain, paresthesia, and facial deformity. Read More

Benign Oral Mucosal Lesions: Clinical and Pathological Findings Part I- Benign Oral Mucosal lesions.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Dermatology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA. Electronic address:

A diverse spectrum of benign oral mucosal lesions exists, presenting as either isolated oral findings or in association with dermatological conditions. Oral lesions can closely resemble one another; therefore, it is important for clinicians to be able to recognize their distinctive features and recognize benign versus malignant disease and when a biopsy is warranted. In this continuing medical education series, we review oral anatomy and the clinical attributes of several benign lesions of the oral cavity along with the appropriate management and therapeutic modalities.

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery and Diagnostic Sciences, Division of Oral Pathology, College of Dentistry, Jazan University, Jazan, Saudi Arabia.

Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous lesion commonly affecting the extra-gnathic craniofacial skeleton of the young individuals. The psammomatoid and trabecular variants are its two histopathological subtypes having distinctive clinico-pathological characteristics. Secondary aneurysmal bone cysts are frequently reported to arise in the pre-existing fibro-osseous lesions but rarely reported in the psammmomatoid variant of the juvenile ossifying fibroma.

Growth factors like bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4) and fibroblast growth factor 8 (FGF8) play a major role in organogenesis and specifically in odontogenesis. They are also believed to have a role in oncogenesis. Thus, any discrepancies in their standard behavior and activity would lead to serious abnormalities including odontogenic cyst and tumors.

Central Odontogenic Fibroma: A Case Report.

Cureus 2018 Apr 30;10(4):e2556. Epub 2018 Apr 30.

Armed Forces Institute of Dentistry, CMH Lahore Medical College and Institute of Dentistry, Lahore, PAK.

A central odontogenic fibroma (COF) is a rare tumor of odontogenic origin with a diverse histopathology found in both the mandible and the maxilla. It can often be difficult to diagnose; therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the clinical, radiographic, and histopathological analyses of COF and co-relate them in a manner to make definitive diagnosis easier for the treating physician. Herein, we report and discuss the first known case of central odontogenic fibroma in Pakistan: a 16-year-old boy presenting as a hard bony painless swelling of the left mandibular region. Read More

5Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialized, Babol University of Medical Sciences, Babol, Iran.

Ossifying fibroma is a benign osteogenic mesenchymal tumor that is classified in the fibro-osseous lesions. Fibro-osseous lesions contain minerals, blood vessels, and giant cells that have the same radiographic and pathologic features but have different clinical behaviors, and were replaced with the normal bone. These lesions include fibrous dysplasia, cemento-osseous dysplasia, and ossifying fibroma. Read More

Comparsion of staining characteristics of Toto bodies.

Biotech Histochem 2018 21;93(5):336-339. Epub 2018 May 21.

a Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology , St. Joseph Dental College , Eluru 534004 , Andhra Pradesh , India.

Toto bodies are eosinophilic structures that resemble the cells of the superficial cell layer of the oral epithelium. Toto bodies commonly are associated with inflammatory gingival and other mucosal lesions including pyogenic granuloma, irritational fibroma, epulis fissuratum, peripheral giant cell granuloma and inflammatory hyperplastic gingivitis. We evaluated staining characteristics of Toto bodies to establish their origin and to identify their significance in lesions. Read More
