Department of Oral Pathology, MM College of Dental Sciences and Research, Mullana (Deemed to be University), Ambala, Haryana, India.

The presence of eosinophilic Toto bodies in oral lesions could be found in a variety of situations and sometime may present a challenge to the pathologist. We present three case reports where the oral biopsy was taken from the gingival region of a 30-year-old female, a 32-year-old male patient and another from the buccal mucosa of a 67-year-old male patient. Histopathologically, the three cases were finally diagnosed as pyogenic granuloma and moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma with the presence of clusters of Toto bodies in the upper spinous layer of stratified squamous epithelium.

Staining efficacy assessment of a differential routine and special stains for pathological stromal calcifications in maxillofacial lesions.

J Histotechnol 2020 Mar 10:1-7. Epub 2020 Mar 10.

Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, I.T.S Centre for Dental Studies and Research, Ghaziabad, India.

Head and neck connective tissue lesions may have diverse calcifications within the fibrous connective tissue stroma. The perplexity involved in the identification and determination of the nature or degree of calcification through routine hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stains necessitates the usage of a specific, simple, and cost- and time-effective differential staining techniques. The aim of the present study was to develop criteria to distinguish bone formation from bone resorption using methylene blue-acid fuchsin (MB/AF) stain and the role of collagen fibers in the identification of stromal calcifications using polarizing microscopy with picrosirius red stain.

Haemangioendothelioma of Oral Cavity: A Rare Entity with Unusual Location.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2019 Jul;29(7):680-682

Department of General Medicine, Suyash Multispeciality Hospital, Nashik, Maharashtra 422403, India.

Hemangioendothelioma is a rare, locally aggressive vascular tumor, originating from soft tissue, bone, skin, and organs such as liver or lung and exceptionally the oral cavity. It is usually benign but can show variable grades of malignancy. Most of the cases of oral epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas are asymptomatic, and diagnosis is hampered by the fact that the histological features somewhat overlap with hemangioma and angiosarcoma, with epithelioid cells, intracytoplasmic vacuoles, low mitotic activity, and rarely necrosis.

Development of Periungual Pyogenic Granuloma with Associated Paronychia Following Isotretinoin Therapy: A Case Report and a Review of the Literature.

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2019 Apr 1;12(4):32-36. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Drs. Benedetto, Ettefagh, and Nami are with the Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California.

The development of periungual pyogenic granulomas while taking the oral acne drug isotretinoin is a known yet uncommon and potentially severe side effect of the oral vitamin A derivative. Previous reports have detailed the development of pyogenic granulomas most commonly arising at sites of previous acne lesions as well as both subungual and periungual locations, with associated paronychia, bleeding, and discomfort. This is thought to arise as a result of the nail bed's fragility and propensity toward spicule formation brought on by the proliferative action of isotretinoin. Read More

Associate Professor, Section of Oral Pathology, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, Conn.

Abnormal peri-implant tissue response in the form of benign reactive lesions, such as peripheral giant cell granuloma and pyogenic granuloma, is a less frequent biologic complication associated with dental implant therapy. However, these lesions can cause gingival pain, swelling, and discomfort, as well as peri-implant bone loss and possible implant failure. Few reports in the dental literature have described these lesions around complete-arch fixed implant-supported prostheses. Read More

Erythematous and Vascular Oral Mucosal Lesions: A Clinicopathologic Review of Red Entities.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Mar 29;13(1):4-15. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

The Ohio State University, 305 W. 12 Ave, Columbus, OH, 43210, USA.

Erythematous lesions of the oral mucosa are common and can reflect a variety of conditions, ranging from benign reactive or immunologically-mediated disorders to malignant disease. Together with vascular abnormalities, which can vary from reddish to bluish-purple in color, the differential diagnosis for erythematous oral mucosal change is quite diverse. This review focuses on salient clinical features and histopathologic findings of selected conditions which clinically present as red or vascular-like oral mucosal alterations, including oral vascular malformations and neoplasms, pyogenic granuloma, localized juvenile spongiotic gingival hyperplasia, denture stomatitis, benign migratory glossitis (geographic tongue), orofacial granulomatosis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener granulomatosis), megaloblastic anemia, and erythroplakia.

Lumps and Bumps of the Gingiva: A Pathological Miscellany.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Mar 29;13(1):103-113. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Academic Unit of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine and Pathology, School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield, Claremont Crescent, Sheffield, S10 2TA, UK.

Lesions of the gingivae are amongst the commonest lesions seen in patients and the vast majority are reactive hyperplasias, related to a number of chronic irritant stimuli. However, there are a number of entities that have a predilection for the gingivae, which are much less common in other parts of the oral cavity. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the clinical and histological differential diagnoses when presented with a lump on the gingivae, including the approach to diagnosis and diagnostic pitfalls.

Benign oral mucosal lesions: Clinical and pathological findings.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 Jul 14;81(1):43-56. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Dermatology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts; US Department of Veteran Affairs, Boston Health Care System, Boston, Massachusetts. Electronic address:

A diverse spectrum of benign oral mucosal lesions exists, presenting as either isolated oral findings or in association with dermatologic conditions. Oral lesions can closely resemble one another; therefore, it is important for clinicians to be able to recognize their distinctive features, to be able to recognize benign versus malignant disease, and to recognize when obtaining a biopsy specimen is warranted. The first article in this continuing medical education series reviews oral anatomy, the clinical attributes of several benign lesions of the oral cavity, and appropriate management and therapeutic modalities.

Toxic Side Effects of Targeted Therapies and Immunotherapies Affecting the Skin, Oral Mucosa, Hair, and Nails.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Nov;19(Suppl 1):31-39

Institut Universitaire du Cancer Toulouse - Oncopole, 1 avenue Irène Joliot-Curie, 31059, TOULOUSE Cedex 9, France.

Targeted therapies and immunotherapies are associated with a wide range of dermatologic adverse events (dAEs) resulting from common signaling pathways involved in malignant behavior and normal homeostatic functions of the epidermis and dermis. Dermatologic toxicities include damage to the skin, oral mucosa, hair, and nails. Acneiform rash is the most common dAE, observed in 25-85% of patients treated by epidermal growth factor receptor and mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase inhibitors. Read More
