    The clinico-radiological spectrum of masseteric venous malformation: Case report.
    J Oral Biol Craniofac Res 2016 Nov 26;6(Suppl 1):S58-S61. Epub 2015 Sep 26.
    Reader, Department of Periodontology, People's Dental Academy, Bhopal, India.
    Due to its location, intra-masseteric venous malformation often mistaken for a parotid swelling and clinical examination alone frequently underestimates the deep extension of the lesion and rarely gives accurate pre-operative diagnosis. But once it is diagnosed, the feasibility of the treatment and the plan of approach depend on accurate delineation of the extent, size and location of the lesion. Therefore, complimentary radiographic studies are essential for its management. Read More
