Case Rep Dent 2021 21;2021:5575896. Epub 2021 May 21.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Saitama Medical Center, Saitama Medical University, Saitama, Japan.

Pyogenic granuloma (PG) refers to a common, acquired, benign, and vascular tumor that arises in tissues such as the skin and mucous membranes. However, it is extremely rare for PG to arise from an empty socket after tooth extraction. Herein, we describe a rare case of PG that arose from the empty extraction socket of the second molar adjacent to a dentigerous cyst of the left mandibular wisdom tooth in a 57-year-old man.

Biopsied non-dental plaque-induced gingival diseases in a Chinese population: a single-institute retrospective study.

BMC Oral Health 2021 May 17;21(1):265. Epub 2021 May 17.

Department of Oral Pathology, National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases, Peking University School and Hospital of Stomatology, Beijing, China.

Background: While inflammatory diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis induced by dental plaque biofilms constitute the majority of gingival lesions, gingiva can also be affected by a variety of diseases with aetiologies different from bacterial biofilms. The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze the frequency and distribution of non-dental plaque-induced gingival diseases (NDPIGDs) in the Chinese population in a single institute.

Methods: A total of 6859 samples of biopsied gingival diseases during the period 2000-2019 were obtained from the Department of Pathology, Peking University Hospital of Stomatology. Read More

A case series of medication-related fibrovascular hyperplasia following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for Fanconi anemia.

Pediatr Transplant 2020 Dec 22:e13947. Epub 2020 Dec 22.

Multiprofessional Residency Program in Oncology and Hematology, Clinic Hospital Complex, Federal University of Parana, Curitiba, Brazil.

Systemic medications categorized as diphenylhydantoin, calcineurin inhibitor and calcium channel blocker may have effects on the oral cavity by modifying the inflammatory and immune response and causing undesired tissue proliferative reactions. Calcineurin inhibitors are medications commonly used for long periods in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) and solid organ transplantation. Medication-related fibrovascular hyperplasia (MRFH) is an extra gingival hyperplastic nodular growth associated with medications use. Read More

Assessment of Tumor Angiogenesis by Expression of CD 105 in Ameloblastoma, Odontogenic Keratocyst and Central Giant Cell Lesion.

Asian Pac J Cancer Prev 2020 11 1;21(11):3373-3379. Epub 2020 Nov 1.

Department of Prosthetic Dental Science, College of Dentistry, King Saud University, Research Chair for Biological Research in Dental Health, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Background: Angiogenesis is critical for tumor growth and reflects the aggressive behavior of invasive odontogenic lesions [like Ameloblastoma (AM), Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC) and Central giant cell lesion (CGCL)]. Mean vascular density (MVD) shows the angiogenic potential and CD105 is an ideal endothelial biomarker due to its specificity to new blood vessels for MVD detection. The aim of the study was to compare the MVD (angiogenic potential) among AM, OKC and CGCL in comparison to Pyogenic Granuloma (PG) using CD105 biomarker. Read More

An aggressive pyogenic granuloma masquerading as a vascular neoplasm.

J Indian Soc Periodontol 2020 May-Jun;24(3):276-279. Epub 2020 Jan 27.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, SDM College of Dental Sciences and Hospital, A Constituent Unit of Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara University, Dharwad, Karnataka, India.

Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a benign lesion, with a female predilection, commonly associated with local irritation or trauma. We report an unusual, destructive case of PG, displaying excessive loss of blood and destruction of alveolar bone leading to the loss of maxillary anterior teeth in an 18-year-old female, compromising function and esthetics. The incisional and excisional biopsy specimen of this recurrent lesion obtained during a 5-year span was studied, which revealed an increase in vascularity and extensive proliferation of endothelial cells admixed with varying degree of inflammatory cell infiltrate.

Pyogenic Granuloma of the Hard Palate.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Sep;31(6):e612-e614

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Chung-Ang University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

As the authors recently experienced a patient with pyogenic granuloma arising from the hard palate, they tried to review all the previously reported literatures with the emphasis on its clinical characteristics that can help the accurate diagnosis of this unusual lesion. Based on our experience and literatures review, clinicians should keep in mind that pyogenic granuloma should be taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis of the hard palatal mass despite its rarity. Although histopathological examination of the mass is the only way to arrive at a definitive diagnosis, the knowledge of the gross appearances of pyogenic granuloma with clinical features may be helpful for differential diagnosis.

Pink bodies with halo.

J Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2020 Jan-Apr;24(1):148-151. Epub 2020 May 8.

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.
