    Department of Periodontology, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, School of Dental Medicine, Bradenton, Florida, USA, Phone: +9414051506, e-mail:
    Introduction: The aim of this study is to describe a case of a melanotic macule found in conjunction with a giant cell fibroma (GCF). For oral pigmented lesions without an identifiable etiologic factor, critical factors in determining the differential diagnosis are clinical history, symmetry, and uniformity of the lesions. Potential differential diagnosis includes racial pigmentation, endocrine disturbance, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, trauma, hemochromatosis, oral malignant melanoma, or idiopathic etiology and melanotic macules.

    Peripheral odontogenic fibroma: a rare gingival neoplasm with clinico-pathological differential diagnosis.
    J Exp Ther Oncol 2017 Sep;11(1):17-21
    Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Government Dental College and Hospital, Nagpur, India.
    Objective: The peripheral odontogenic fibroma (POdF) is a rare gingival neoplasm, characterised by relatively mature collagenous fibrous tissue and varying amounts of odontogenic epithelium. It can be described as a slow growing, firmly attached, solid and smooth gingival mass which may be present asymptomatically for years, which may cause displacement of adjacent teeth. The purpose of this article is to discuss a case of POdF, occurring in the maxillary anterior region, with detailed clinico-pathological differential diagnosis to clarify characteristic features of various gingival overgrowths to enhance easy identification.

    An unusual case of neural palatal swelling.
    Int J Health Sci (Qassim) 2017 Jul-Sep;11(3):71-73
    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, SDM College of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Sattur, Dharwad, Karnataka, India.
    Neural tumors in the oral cavity occur both in the soft tissues and in the jaw bones. They occur as painless, smooth surface swelling in the soft tissues of the mouth, exhibiting a slow rate of growth and mild expansion of the cortical plates. Here, we report a rare case of a cellular variant of schwannoma in a young Indian female patient who presented with an asymptomatic nodule in the mid-palatine raphe region of the hard palate, mimicking a fibroma, thus creating a dilemma in the diagnosis.

    Ameloblastic Fibroodontoma: Uncommon Case Presentation in a 6-Year-Old Child with Review of the Literature.
    Case Rep Med 2017 13;2017:9483738. Epub 2017 Aug 13.
    Department of Oral Pathology, Faculty of Dentistry, Asian Institute of Medicine, Science & Technology (AIMST) University, Kedah Darul Aman, Malaysia.
    Ameloblastic fibroodontoma is a benign mixed odontogenic neoplasm considered in patients with asymptomatic swelling and unerupted teeth that exhibit histologic features between ameloblastic fibroma and complex odontoma. Radiographically, this lesion appears as radiolucency admixed with focal radio opaque masses of irregular shapes and sizes. This lesion is confirmed by the presence of proliferating odontogenic epithelium, ectomesenchyme, and dental hard tissue formation on pathological analysis supplementing clinical and radiographic findings.

    Ameloblastic Fibrodentinoma: A Case with Varied Patterns of Dysplastic Dentin.
    Cureus 2017 Jun 14;9(6):e1349. Epub 2017 Jun 14.
    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Krishnadevaraya College of Dental Sciences and Hospital.
    Ameloblastic fibrodentinoma is a benign odontogenic tumor belonging to the category of "odontogenic epithelium with odontogenic ectomesenchyme" along with recognition of induction in the form of dentin in atypical or dysplastic forms. The biological behaviour of ameloblastic fibrodentinoma is not very different from ameloblastic fibroma; hence, it is treated similarly by conservative procedures. It is important to understand the histopathogenesis of these rare tumors. Read More

    Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathobiology, Institute of Biomedical & Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, 1-2-3 Kasumi, Minami-ku, Hiroshima, 734-8553, Japan.
    The latest (4th) edition of the World Health Organization Classification of Head and Neck tumours has recently been published with a number of significant changes across all tumour sites. In particular, there has been a major attempt to simplify classifications and to use defining criteria which can be used globally in all situations, avoiding wherever possible the use of complex molecular techniques which may not be affordable or widely available. This review summarises the changes in Chapter 8: Odontogenic and maxillofacial bone lesions. Read More

    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 (n = 122), PG (n = 158), and PA (n = 39) obtained using a polarizing microscope were compared. Read More

    Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Purvanchal Institute of Dental Sciences, Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, India.
    Fibroma is one of the most common soft tissue benign tumors of the oral cavity. These masses represent hyperplasias instead of true neoplasm, which develop due to irritation to the mucosal tissue resulting in proliferation of the cells. Although so common in the oral cavity, its occurrence on the palate is rare, mainly due to fewer chances of trauma. Read More

    Histological evaluation of the possible transformation of peripheral giant cell granuloma and peripheral ossifying fibroma: A preliminary study.
    Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2017 Jan-Mar;60(1):15-20
    Department of Pathology, Gülhane Military Medical Academy, Ankara, Turkey.
    Aims: The objective of this study is to describe shared morphological features of peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) and peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) in detail and discuss the possible relationship between them.

    Materials And Methods: Ten intermediate cases with features resembling to both POF and PGCG were selected and type 3 and 1 collagen immunostainings were performed for evaluation of the connective tissue maturation. Immunohistochemical staining percentage (SP) for stromal cells in the slides of POF and PGCG counterparts of intermediate lesions was scored as 1 when the SP was above 10%, 2 when the SP was above 25%, 3 when the SP was above 50% and 4 when the SP was above 75%.
