    [Immunohistochemical criteria for differential diagnostics of squamous epithelium changes in pyogenic granuloma and squamous cell carcinoma of the oral mucosa].
    Stomatologiia (Mosk) 2017;96(2):33-35
    Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, Moscow, Russia.
    The paper presents an example of differential diagnostic studies for pyogenic granuloma and oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). In the described case immunohistochemistry with antibodies to Ki-67 and Gli1 was used as conventional histological procedure proved to be inconvenient for adequate diagnostics. The immunohistochemical study established increased proliferative activity of epithelial cells specific both pyogenic granuloma and oral SCC, but intensive Gli1 protein expression in membranes and cytoplasm of epithelial cells with malignant transformation allowed differentiation of these neoplasms.

    Oral Pyogenic Granuloma After Bone Marrow Transplant in the Pediatric/Adolescent Population: Report of 5 Cases.
    J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2016 Oct;38(7):570-3
    Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN.
    Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a benign, neoplastic, soft tissue growth of granulation and fibrous tissue that may rarely occur in the mouth of patients after hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT). This case series describes 5 pediatric/adolescent patients who developed oral PG after HCT for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Fanconi anemia, nodular sclerosis Hodgkin's lymphoma, or junctional epidermolysis bullosa. The underlying mechanism for the appearance of oral PG after HCT is unknown, but it is suggested that calcineurin inhibitors used for graft versus host disease (GVHD) may play a role, as all patients were on cyclosporine A or tacrolimus at the time of development of oral PG.
