Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Apr 23;31(2):194-196. Epub 2018 Feb 23.

Division of Otolaryngology, Department of Surgery, Baylor Scott and White McLane Children's Hospital, Temple, Texas.

Subglottic hemangioma is a potentially life-threatening manifestation of the PHACES syndrome. The disease process has been treated with corticosteroids, oral chemotherapeutic agents, endoscopic airway interventions, tracheostomy, and even laryngotracheal reconstruction. Oral propranolol has emerged as an effective therapy and in many cases has led to complete regression of hemangioma during the proliferative phase. Read More

Lobular capillary hemangioma of the mandible: A case report.

Clin Imaging 2018 Jul - Aug;50:246-249. Epub 2018 Apr 13.

Stanford University School of Medicine, 300 Pasteur Drive, Room S-047, Stanford, CA 94305, United States.

Lobular capillary hemangiomas are acquired benign vascular neoplasms which typically affect the skin and mucous membranes. While these lesions commonly involve the head and neck, particularly the oral cavity, there are no reports in the literature of lobular capillary hemangioma arising from the mandible. The diagnosis of such a rare entity can therefore be challenging, especially as it may mimic more aggressive lesions, including malignancy. Read More

Center for Craniofacial Research, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Dentistry, Houston, Texas.

Tooth development is regulated by multiple genetic pathways, which ultimately drive the complex interactions between the oral epithelium and mesenchyme. Disruptions at any time point during this process may lead to failure of tooth development, also known as tooth agenesis (TA). TA is a common craniofacial abnormality in humans and represents the failure to develop one or more permanent teeth. Read More

Understanding the effects of age on the epidemiology of diseases primarily affecting the skin is important to the practice of dermatology, both for proper allocation of resources and for optimal patient-centered care. To fully appreciate the effect that age may have on the population-based calculations of incidence of diseases primarily affecting the skin in Olmsted County, Minnesota, and worldwide, we performed a review of all relevant Rochester Epidemiology Project-published data and compared them to similar reports in the worldwide English literature. Using the Rochester Epidemiology Project, population-based epidemiologic studies have been performed to estimate the incidence of specific skin diseases over the past 50 years. Read More
