Gingival Neurofibroma With Teardrop-Shaped Defects of the Interdental Alveolar Bone: An Unusual Oral Manifestation of Neurofibromatosis Type 1.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery II, Osaka University Graduate School of Dentistry, Osaka, Japan.

Gingival enlargement, although frequently encountered in clinical settings, is rarely associated with systemic diseases or syndromes. Among the diverse pathological conditions of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1), minor manifestations in the orofacial region are occasionally overlooked. Herein, the authors present an unusual case of gingival neurofibroma in a patient with NF-1 associated with characteristic osseous defects in the alveolus in the long-term course of 17 years from the first examination.

Immunohistochemical differentiation between spindle cell lipoma and neurofibroma of oral cavity using CD34 and SOX10.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2018 Oct-Dec;61(4):561-563

Department of Dentistry, SP Medical College, Bikaner, Rajasthan, India.

Spindle cell lipoma (SCL), also called as pleomorphic adenoma, is a rare variant of lipoma histopathologically characterized by an admixture of mature fat cells with spindle cells and occasionally mast cells with myxoid connective tissue stroma and thick bends of birefringent collagen. Although buccal mucosa is the most common location for oral lipomas, for SCL, it is an exceedingly rare location. We report a case of an asymptomatic swelling of buccal mucosa that simulated the features of neurofibroma on histopathological examination, and the final diagnosis of SCL was made on the basis of immunohistochemical features.

Phenotypic and genotypic overlap between mosaic NF2 and schwannomatosis in patients with multiple non-intradermal schwannomas.

Hum Genet 2018 Jul 13;137(6-7):543-552. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Department of Neurology, University Hospital Hamburg Eppendorf, 20246, Hamburg, Germany.

Schwannomatosis and neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) are both characterized by the development of multiple schwannomas but represent different genetic entities. Whereas NF2 is caused by mutations of the NF2 gene, schwannomatosis is associated with germline mutations of SMARCB1 or LZTR1. Here, we studied 15 sporadic patients with multiple non-intradermal schwannomas, but lacking vestibular schwannomas and ophthalmological abnormalities, who fulfilled the clinical diagnostic criteria for schwannomatosis.

Characterization and utilization of an international neurofibromatosis web-based, patient-entered registry: An observational study.

PLoS One 2017 23;12(6):e0178639. Epub 2017 Jun 23.

Children's Tumor Foundation, New York, United States of America.

The neurofibromatoses (neurofibromatosis type 1, neurofibromatosis type 2 and schwannomatosis) are rare disorders having clinical manifestations that vary greatly from patient to patient. The rarity and variability of these disorders has made it challenging for investigators to identify sufficient numbers of patients with particular clinical characteristics or specific germline mutations for participation in interventional studies. Similarly, because the natural history of all types of neurofibromatosis (NF) is variable and unique for each individual, it is difficult to identify meaningful clinical outcome measures for potential therapeutic interventions.

Subgemmal neurogenous plaque of the tongue: a report of three cases.

Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Sep 10;21(3):351-355. Epub 2017 May 10.

Department of Dentistry, Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Natal, RN, Brazil.

Subgemmal neurogenous plaque (SNP) is a biphasic neural structure associated with the taste buds. Clinically, SNP usually presents as an asymptomatic, normally colored, papule located in the posterior lateral border of the tongue. Accurate diagnosis is based only on histopathological examination, which shows a superficial neurofibroma-like pattern and a neuroma-like in the deep zone. Read More

Department of Oral & Maxillofacial - Head & Neck Oncology, Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China. Electronic address:

Giant facial neurofibroma leads to disfigurement and functional and neurological deficits. Surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment and poses a great challenge to the surgeon with regard to the restoration of the defects arising from tumour resection. The cases of three male and three female patients diagnosed with giant facial neurofibroma, who underwent radical resection and reconstruction with soft tissue free flaps between 2008 and 2015, were analyzed retrospectively.

Solitary Non Syndromic Oral Plexiform Neurofibroma: a Case Report and Review of Literature.

J Dent (Shiraz) 2016 Sep;17(3 Suppl):293-296

Head of Dental Dept., Yashwantrao Chavan Memorial Hospital, Pimpri, Pune, India.

In oral cavity neurogenic tumors are rare, especially if they are malignant. Neurofibromas are the benign tumors of nerve sheath origin involving multiple nerve fascicles of the smaller branches of peripheral nerves. They may present as solitary lesions or as a part of generalized syndrome of neurofibromatosis also known as von Recklinghausen's disease (VRD) or very rarely as multiple neurofibromas without VRD.

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor -A Rare Malignancy in Mandible.

J Clin Diagn Res 2016 Jun 1;10(6):ZD12-3. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Post Graduate Student, Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, GITAM Dental College and Hospital , Rushikonda, Visakhapatnam, India .

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor (MPNST) is biologically an aggressive tumor that is usually found in the extremities, trunk and infrequently found in the head and neck area particularly in the jaws, arising from the cells allied with nerve sheath. Mandibular MPNST may either arise from a preexisting neurofibroma or develop de novo. Because of the greater variability from case to case in overall appearance both clinically and histologically, a case of MPNST of the mandible in a 25-year-old female patient is reported. Read More

Histopathological and Radiographic Analysis of Dental Follicle of Impacted Teeth Using Modified Gallego's Stain.

J Clin Diagn Res 2016 May 1;10(5):ZC106-11. Epub 2016 May 1.

Professor and PG Guide, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and Microbiology, Padmashree Dr D Y Patil Dental College and Hospital , Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, India .

Introduction: In the WHO classification of odontogenic tumours, hard tissue formation has been considered as a sub-classification however, this parameter has not been much explored in dental follicle in literature. Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions play an important role in odontogenesis and its associated pathologies; therefore research on dental follicle should also include mesenchymal components along with epithelial components. Additionally, special stains to identify the nature of such depositions in dental follicle have been less explored. Read More

Division of Endocrinology, Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Ill., USA.

Background/aims: Growth hormone (GH) excess in children with chiasmal optic pathway tumors (OPT), often associated with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), is likely underrecognized. These children have elevated insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels, evidence of rapid growth despite treatment of precocious puberty, and failure to suppress GH levels following oral glucose challenge. The aim of this report is to describe the treatment course and natural history of this rare clinical condition in 7 patients. Read More
