    Brown tumor of the jaws as a manifestation of tertiary hyperparathyroidism: A literature review and case report.
    Spec Care Dentist 2018 Mar 30. Epub 2018 Mar 30.
    Postgraduate Program, Dental College, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul-PUCRS.
    Brown tumor of the jaws is a manifestation of hyperparathyroidism consisting of osteolytic lesions that show proliferation of multinucleated giant cells in the maxilla and/or mandible. Differential diagnosis of these lesions from local central giant-cell granuloma is mandatory for the correct treatment of the patient. Radiographic and histopathological exams of the jaw lesion are not sufficient to determine the diagnosis, which requires laboratory tests including serum levels of calcium, alkaline phosphatase, parathyroid hormone (PTH) and phosphate, and radiographic examination of other bones as well, such as hand-wrist, pelvis, and femur.

    Bone Tumour Reference Centre at the Institute of Pathology, University Hospital Basel, University of Basel, Schoenbeinstrasse 40, Basel 4031, Switzerland. Electronic address:
    The jaws combine several unique properties that mainly result from their distinct embryonic development and their role in providing anchorage for the teeth and their supporting structures. As a consequence, several bone-related lesions almost exclusively develop in the jaws (eg, osseous dysplasias, ossifying fibromas), have distinct clinical features (eg, osteosarcoma), or hardly ever occur at this location (eg, osteochondroma, enchondroma). The specific characteristics of these tumors and tumorlike lesions are outlined in this article. Read More

    Background: Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG), a rare entity first described in 1979, is very similar to O'Brien actinic granuloma (AG), first described in 1975. Since then, many cases have been published under one or other of the two names. We performed a single-centre histopathology study to identify the distinguishing features and determine whether there was any objective difference between AEGCG and AG. Read More

    Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor (PMT) is a rare neoplasm of uncertain histogenesis that has been linked to tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) since 1959. The neoplastic cells produce increased amount of FGF23 which results in TIO via uncontrolled renal loss of phosphate (phosphaturia), and consequently diminished bone mineralization. To date, ∼300 cases have been reported. Read More
