Ameloblastoma: An immature epithelial tumor of the JAW originating from the epithelial rests of Malassez or from other epithelial remnants of the ENAMEL from the developmental period. It is a slowly growing tumor, usually benign, but displays a marked propensity for invasive growth.Jaw Neoplasms: Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.Mandibular Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the MANDIBLE.Maxillary Neoplasms: Cancer or tumors of the MAXILLA or upper jaw.Odontogenic Tumors: Neoplasms produced from tooth-forming tissues.Follicular Cyst: Cyst due to the occlusion of the duct of a follicle or small gland.Radicular Cyst: Slow-growing fluid-filled epithelial sac at the apex of a tooth with a nonvital pulp or defective root canal filling.Oral Surgical Procedures: Surgical procedures used to treat disease, injuries, and defects of the oral and maxillofacial region.Odontogenic Cysts: Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.Dentigerous Cyst: Most common follicular odontogenic cyst. Occurs in relation to a partially erupted or unerupted tooth with at least the crown of the tooth to which the cyst is attached protruding into the cystic cavity.

Histopathologic features and management of ameloblastoma: study of 20 cases. (1/137)

BACKGROUND: Odontogenic ameloblastoma (OA) of the jaws is a rare neoplasia of the oral cavity (0.78%) with a 5:1 mandible/maxilla relation, with the molar region and the ascendant ramus being the most affected areas. Comparing our results with the literature demonstrated to us that this tumor may be considered to be a worldwide problem due to the similarity in clinical findings among different ethnic groups CASE SERIES: The purpose of this study of 20 patients with ameloblastoma of the mandible and maxilla diagnosed at the Stomatology and Head and Neck Services of Heliopolis Hospital, Sao Paulo, Brazil, from 1980 to 1997, was to establish the histopathologic pattern of classification of those tumors through optical microscopy and the relation of this histopathology to therapeutic management. Using the Regeze, Kerr and Courtney classification (1978), we diagnosed follicular tumor in 11 cases, plexiform in 6 cases and unicystic in 3 cases, and performed surgical resection with a safety margin of 1.5 to 3.0 cm in the follicular and plexiform cases and bone curettage in the unicystic cases.  (+info)

Extra copies of chromosomes 7, 8, 12, 19, and 21 are recurrent in adamantinoma. (2/137)

Adamantinoma of long bones is a rare neoplasm predominantly involving the tibia. Cytogenetic studies of adamantinoma are few. Cytogenetic or molecular cytogenetic analysis of four adamantinomas, and a review of eleven cases in the literature reveals extra copies of chromosomes 7, 8, 12, 19, and 21 as recurrent in this neoplasm. Adamantinoma may be confused with a variety of primary and metastatic epithelial and mesenchymal neoplasms. Observation of these aneuploidies may be useful in establishing the diagnosis of adamantinoma.  (+info)

Clinicostatistical study of ameloblastoma treatment. (3/137)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the treatment of 190 cases of ameloblastoma in our department from 1966 to 1994. The statistical results with regard to age, sex and region agreed with those of other investigators. Thirty-five of 43 (81.4%) cases underwent enucleation in 1960s, but the sixteen of 27 (59.3%) cases underwent partial resection of mandible in 1990s. The defect of mandible was reconstructed with iliac bone grafting since 1968, grafts with a mixture of iliac blocked bone and PCBM (particulate cancellous bone and marrow) have been used since 1975. Grafting of the inferior alveolar nerve with the great auricular nerve to the defect has been performed in our department since 1977. Recently, technique involving pull-through of the inferior alveolar nerve bundle has been used in our department. When the reconstruction method for the mandible and nerve has been established, it becomes possible to operate radically and positively. Recurrence occurred in 17 cases after the primary enucleation. It is thought that the primary treatment of ameloblastoma must be as radical as possible. It appears to be necessary to observe progress and perform follow-up in cases of ameloblastoma for more than ten years, because there was one recurrence at 9 years and 4 months after the first operation. In fact, three quarters of our cases were lost to follow-up. Such losses can problems in confirming recurrence and responding rapidly.  (+info)

Cytokeratins expression of constituting cells in ameloblastoma. (5/137)

The purposes of this study were to investigate the distribution of cytokeratins in the different tissue types of ameloblastoma and to discuss the histogenesis of this tumor. CK19 and CK8, which are markers for odontogenic epithelium, reacted positively to the constituting cells in all types of ameloblastoma. This suggests that all types of ameloblastoma derive from odontogenic epithelium. However, the desmoplastic type diminished the odontogenic characteristics because the basal cells are negative to CK19. Immunoreactions of five kinds of cytokeratin revealed similar results in plexiform, follicular, acanthomatous, and granular cell types. The plexiform type is probably the original type of ameloblastoma; the other types have the characteristics of squamous epithelium, and the follicular, acanthomatous, and granular cell types can develop due to the differentiation of cells of the plexiform type into squamous epithelium.  (+info)

Hemicortical allograft reconstruction after resection of low-grade malignant bone tumours. (6/137)

Low-grade surface tumours of bone may theoretically be treated by hemicortical resection, retaining part of the circumference of the cortex. An inlay allograft may be used to reconstruct the defect. Since 1988 we have performed 22 hemicortical procedures in selected patients with low-grade parosteal osteosarcoma (6), peripheral chondrosarcoma (6) and adamantinoma (10). Restricted medullary involvement was not a contraindication for this procedure. There was no evidence of local recurrence or distant metastasis at a mean follow-up of 64 months (27 to 135). Wide resection margins were obtained in 19 patients. All allografts incorporated completely and there were no fractures or infections. Fractures of the remaining hemicortex occurred in six patients and were managed successfully by casts or by osteosynthesis. The functional results were excellent or good in all except one patient. Hemicortical procedures for selected cases of low-grade surface tumours give excellent oncological and functional outcomes. There was complete remodelling and fewer complications when compared with larger intercalary procedures. The surgery is technically demanding but gives good clinical results.  (+info)

Malignant odontogenic tumors. A retrospective and collaborative study of seven cases. (7/137)

The frequency, clinico-pathologic features and outcome of malignant odontogenic tumors diagnosed according to the current WHO classification in three pathology services in Mexico City are presented. There were seven cases (5 male and 2 female patients), which represent less than 4% of all odontogenic tumors diagnosed in these services. There were six odontogenic carcinomas (two malignant ameloblastomas, two clear cell odontogenic carcinomas, one primary intraosseous carcinoma and one carcinoma arising in an odontogenic cyst) and one ameloblastic fibrosarcoma. Age ranged from 25 to 72 years (mean: 43.8). Clear cell odontogenic carcinomas occurred in the canine-premolar region, one in the maxilla and one in the mandible (one ia a man and one in a woman), while the remaining lesions affected the posterior region of the mandible, with a male predominance (4:1), which agrees with previously reported cases. Surgical resection was the treatment employed in all carcinomas, while the ameloblastic fibrosarcoma was treated with chemotherapy due to its large extension, but without favorable response. The patient with primary intraosseous carcinoma had submaxillary and cervical metastases and the neoplasm was the cause of death. In spite of their extremely low frequency, malignant odontogenic tumors are an important cause of extensive surgical procedures in the oral and maxillofacial region.  (+info)

Ameloblastic fibroma of the mandible. Report of two cases. (8/137)

The ameloblastic fibroma (AF)-ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO), is an uncommon benign mixed odontogenic tumor (epithelial and mesenchymal), that represents the 2% of all odontogenic tumors. It usually appears in the mandible and in the posterior segments of young patients without gender predilection, and sometimes is associated with an impacted tooth. The classification of the WHO includes it in the subtype of odontogenic tumors with a defined histologic features. The AF and the AFO are considered as an unique entity as they are variations of the same tumor, only distinct for the presence of an odontoma in the case of the AFO. Surgical conservative treatment with excision followed by curettage seems to be the most appropriate therapeutic option. The objective of this paper is to report two cases of this tumor, to make a brief review of the literature and its differential diagnosis, to analyse its clinical and histologic features and the therapeutic option.  (+info)

Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic tumor of high frequency and usually occurs as an intraosseous growth. Ameloblastomas frequently recur, sometimes undergoing malignant transformation. These tumors are usually characterized as being multilocular, of the follicular type histopathologically, and invading strongly at the border region of the tumor. More than 10% p53-positive tumor cells give a prognostic indication for a tendency to recur. A recurrent ameloblastoma usually occurs in the intraosseous region near the site of the original lesion. In very rare cases, a recurrent tumor proliferates distantly from the original site in the soft tissue only. We report a rare case of recurrent ameloblastoma in the buccal mucosa with a mucocele that originated from the small salivary glands after the extirpation of an intraosseous (mandibular) ameloblastoma. We also performed a p53 immunohistochemical study of this recurrent tumor.. ...

Ameloblastoma is a histologically almost always benign odontogenic tumor with a high rate of recurrence if not removed completely. Therefore, radical surgery is the treatment of choice of a primary ameloblastoma. Of 18 patients with a recurrent ameloblastoma, previously treated by enucleation, radical surgery was deemed impossible in three because of the extent of the tumor or because of a poor general condition of the patient. Of the remaining 15 patients three refused to undergo radical surgery and have been treated for their recurrence by enucleation again ...

INTRODUCTION: Cases of maxillary ameloblastomas from 15-year database (1986-2000) collected in the Department of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery of the University Hospital of Zurich were evaluated. PATIENTS: Twenty-six patients suffering from ameloblastoma had been collected. Five of them, had a maxillary ameloblastoma, three females and two males. METHODS: A clinical retrospective study was performed. In addition a review of the literature was undertaken and the findings have been compared and contrasted. PATIENTS: The overall incidence of ameloblastoma within the mandible (21) was four times higher than in the maxilla (5). In 69 per cent of the cases (18) it occurred in men, in 31 percent (8) in women. The sex ratio differed with the maxillary ameloblastomas: 40 percent male (2) and 60 per cent female (3). Although slow growing and nearly painless, it can reach a considerable size within the mid-face involving such highly specialized structures as the orbit, skull-base and brain. Wide resections ...

Ameloblastoma (from the early English word amel, meaning enamel + the Greek word blastos, meaning germ) is a rare, benign or cancerous tumor of odontogenic epithelium (ameloblasts, or outside portion, of the teeth during development) much more commonly appearing in the lower jaw than the upper jaw. It was recognized in 1827 by Cusack. This type of odontogenic neoplasm was designated as an adamantinoma in 1885 by the French physician Louis-Charles Malassez. It was finally renamed to the modern name ameloblastoma in 1930 by Ivey and Churchill. While these tumors are rarely malignant or metastatic (that is, they rarely spread to other parts of the body), and progress slowly, the resulting lesions can cause severe abnormalities of the face and jaw. Additionally, because abnormal cell growth easily infiltrates and destroys surrounding bony tissues, wide surgical excision is required to treat this disorder. If an aggressive tumor is left untreated, it can obstruct the nasal and oral airways making it ...
Ameloblastoma is a benign odontogenic tumour that may exhibit aggressive biological behaviour with local recurrence and metastasis following initial surgical resection. Surgery is the most acceptable modality of treatment, even if a biological approach is currently on study. We report a case of maxillary ameloblastoma with development of neck and brain metastases after repeated local recurrences. Molecular analysis was performed with the aim to better characterize this neoplasm and its peculiar behaviour.

With the disease being extremely rare, clinicians have to rely on various reported cases for guidance. Hence, the establishment of treatment standards is not possible. Radiotherapy has been controversially discussed in the past. Most reported cases underwent surgical removal.. Reports of ameloblastic carcinomas receiving radiation therapy are scarce and mostly from the pre-3 D and cobalt era [9-11]. To our knowledge, radiotherapy has only been given as adjuvant therapy in only a few cases [11-15] within the past 20 years. Radiation doses between 41,4 Gy and 54 Gy have been comparatively conservative [12, 13, 16] or not been reported [2, 14, 17] leading to local relapse in half of the cases. Higher radiation doses between 66 and 72 Gy in close margin/positive-margin resections as reported by Philip et al [15] lead to local control for the duration of available follow-up (0.8 - 3.3 years) in the reported 3 cases.. While it has been discussed in cases with incomplete resections or nodal metastases, ...
Ameloblastomas are odontogenic tumors known for their aggressive nature. Because of the odontogenic origin, they are seen affecting the mandible and maxilla. Like humans, animals like dogs, horses may also develop these lesions. In this report, ameloblastoma of the mandible in a male dog is described, The lesion clinically appeared like an exophytic growth on the gingiva near mandibular left canine tooth, radiograph showed a large multilocular radioleucency with destruction of the lower mandible. The lesion recurred after 2 years following the conservative removal. This case report is interesting because similar to humans, the dogs too suffer from the odontogenic lesions. The radiographic, histologic features and the behaviour pattern were similar to humans where as the treatment rendered was only conservative keeping the limited life span of the dog.

Bilateral rostral mandibulectomy is a surgical procedure involving removal of the mandible rostral to the second premolar tooth. This technique is indicated for benign oral tumors, such as acanthomatous ameloblastoma and either small or low-grade malignant tumors, which have crossed the midline.. The overall complication rate following bilateral rostral mandibulectomy in dogs is 19%. The most common complications are wound dehiscence (2%-8%) and short-term eating difficulties (up to 44% overall with 30%, 70%, 90%, and 97% of dogs returning to voluntary eating by day 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively). The median time to return to voluntary eating is 2 days following bilateral rostral mandibulectomy in dogs. In one study, prehension difficulties were common following bilateral rostral mandibulectomy, particularly with more aggressive procedures extending caudal to the second premolar teeth because of the loss of bone and soft tissue support of the tongue; however, the majority of dogs with prehension ...

Bilateral rostral maxillectomy is a surgical procedure involving removal of the maxilla rostral to the second premolar tooth. This technique is indicated for benign oral tumors, such as acanthomatous ameloblastoma and either small or low-grade malignant tumors, which have crossed the midline.. The most common complications following biilateral rostral maxillectomy include cosmetic appearance and wound dehiscence (7%-33% overall). Cosmetically, the nose droops downwards because of loss of ventral support from the incisive and maxillary bones. While this is a cosmetic defect and rarely causes functional problems, such as respiratory difficulties; it can be corrected with a cosmetic cantilever nasal lift surgery. Functionally, dogs and cats do well following bilateral caudal maxillectomy with the vast majority of animals returning to voluntary eating within 1-3 days of surgery. In a 1997 survey of owner satisfaction, 85% of owners were satisfied with the functional and cosmetic outcomes following ...

Well, another good day at the doctor with some confusing news as well. The doctors are very pleased with how my neck wound is healing up and it seems the infection is either 100% gone or going. But today they said I am not considered out of the woods yet because there is no way of knowing...is the infection gone because of the aggressive meds I am taking (the Zosyn) or is it gone because it just is. Does that even make sense? In essence, is the only thing keeping my body from rejecting the graft the Zosyn? So I guess we wont know until 5 weeks from now when I stop the medication if it is going to come back or not. That is disheartening because I had thought that once I finished the Zosyn all would be well and to think that it could possibly come back and my body reject more and more of it is so scary to me.

Ameloblastomas are benign tumours that occur in the jawbone, and invade bone. This type of tumour is treated by surgery and can cause various problems, including changes in facial countenance and mastication disorders. A recent publication by Fuchigami et al. has investigated the soluble factors (i.e. secretome) involved in the formation and progression of ameloblastoma ...
Ameloblastic fibrosarcoma (AFS) is a rare malignant odontogenic neoplasm of the jaw. AFS is characteristically composed of a benign odontogenic epithelium and a malignant mesenchymal component. The posterior region of the mandible is the predominantly occupied site. In the present report, a new case of AFS in a 22-year-old male that originated from ameloblastic fibroma was described. Histologically, the tumor showed biphasic components: Benign epithelium and a malignant mesenchymal component. Immunochemical findings revealed that the tumor cells were positive for cluster of differentiation (CD) 34, vimentin, Ki-67 and p53, but negative for smooth muscle actin, S-100, CD68 and desmin ...

Introduction: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a benign, hamartomatous, slow-growing lesion. The lesion, which is usually located in the anterior maxilla and is more prevalent in female patients, can be classified into three subgroups: follicular, extrafollicular, and peripheral. Case Report: This paper discusses a case of a 19-year-old female presented with swelling of the anterior maxilla, and was diagnosed with extrafollicular adenomatoid odontogenic tumor. Long-term follow-up was carried out after surgical treatment of the lesion. Conclusion: In case of the tumor contained cystic structures on histopathologic examination, long-term follow-up should be better to screen for possible recurrence of the tumor.
Non-inflammatory odontogenic cysts and tumours vary in clinical appearance and can cause widespread destruction and deformation of the face. Proteases may play a role in the differing pathogenesis of these cysts and tumours. Human kallikrein proteins (KLKs) are a group of 15 serine proteases implicated in a variety of signaling and regulatory roles. This study evaluated the ameloblastoma, keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KOT), dentigerous cyst, lateral periodontal cyst, nasopalatine duct cyst and odontoma for the presence of KLK 3, 4, 5, 9 and 11 utilizing immunohistochemistry. Secondarily, we evaluated ameloblastoma for expression of KLK 1-15 mRNA using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Immunostaining identified KLK 3, 4, 9 & 11 in all tissue types and KLK 5 only in KOTs. The ameloblastoma expressed KLK 1, 4, 7, 8, 10 & 12 mRNA. For the first time KLK 3, 4, 5, 9 & 11 were identified in maxillofacial cysts and tumours.
Adenomatoid odontogenic tumours are rare and differ from most other dentition related lesions in that they more frequently occur in the maxilla. Epidemiology They are also seen more frequently in females, most frequently in the second decade of...
A thirty-five year old male presented with complaints of headache radiating to his face for about six months and impaired vision. He presented to an outpatient of Ear, Nose and Throat clinic in April 2012. The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images (Figure 1) shows a tumor extending to the sphenoidal sinus from the anterior segment of the sphenoid bone. The tumor invades the ethmoid bone, sellar and supra-sellar regions, bilateral retro-orbital areas, almost completely invading the left maxillary sinus and extending to the nasal cavity. The mass was observed to displace optic nerves bilaterally. The tumor size was measured at 57 × 56 × 63 mm. Post-contrast series demonstrated intense and heterogeneous contrast enhancement. Based on the biopsy findings, the patient was diagnosed with ameloblastic carcinoma with basaloid appearance (Figure 2). The patient underwent surgery in the Neurosurgery Clinic in May 2012. Due to the size of the mass and proximity to ...

AU - Nagai, Noriyuki. AU - Siar, Chong Huat. AU - Morimoto, Yasushi. PY - 2005. Y1 - 2005. N2 - Type IV collagen, the major component of basement membrane (BM), demonstrates a stage- and position-specific distribution of its isoforms during tooth development. To determine its localization in BM of odontogenic neoplasms, immunohistochemistry using six anti- a (IV) chain-specific monoclonal antibodies was performed. Expression of a 1(IV)/ a 2(IV) and a 5(IV)/ a 6(IV) chains was stronger in the desmoplastic than in ordinary ameloblastomas. The adenomatoid odontogenic tumor distinctly expressed these chains in BM of cribriform areas and hyaline materials (which was also a 4(IV)-positive. These five chains also stained BM and tumor cells of ameloblastic fibroma. Present results suggest that collagen IV composition and ...
INTRODUCTION. The human homologue of Drosophila patched (PTCH) is a tumor suppressor gene localized to chromosome 9q22.3-q31 (GenBank accession numbers: U43148 and U59464) (Hahn et al., 1996; Johnson et al., 1996) member of the Hedgehog/Patched (or SHH/SMO/PTCH) signaling pathway, which plays a fundamental role during embryogenic development and appears to underlie many disease states when misregulated (Saldanha, 2001). Increased PTCH expression has been detected immunohistochemically in sporadic and Gorlin-syndrome-related keratocystic odontogenic tumors (Barreto et al., 2000; Ohki et al., 2004; Shear, 2002; Zedan et al., 2001), dentigerous cysts (Levanat et al., 2000), ameloblastomas (Kumamoto et al., 2004) and epithelial-mesenchymal tumors, such as adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, Pindborg tumor and ghost cell odontogenic carcinoma (Zhang et al., 2006). However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no studies concerning the PTCH in dental follicles (DF), whose epithelial components are ...
Background: Various extirpative and reconstructive methods have been described for the treatment of large sized ameloblastomas. We describe our current practice of computer-aided virtual planned and pre-executed surgeries using microvascular free tissue transfer with immediate placement of implants and dental prosthetics.. Methods: All patients with ameloblastomas treated at NYU Medical Center during a 10-year period from September 2001 to December 2011 were identified. Of the 38 (36 mandible/2 maxilla) patients that were treated in this time period, 20 were identified with advanced disease (giant ameloblastoma) requiring aggressive resection. Reconstruction of the resultant defects utilized microvascular free tissue transfer with an osseo-cutaneous fibular flap in all 20 of these patients.. Results: Patients reconstructed with free vascularized tissue transfer suffered complications in 35% (7/20). These included neuropraxia, recipient site wound breakdown, and hematoma. There were two complete ...
To the authors knowledge, this is the first reported case of an odontogenic carcinoma with documented skeletal muscle differentiation (rhabdomyosarcoma). The histology and clinical features of this aggressive odontogenic neoplasm are described. Within the English-language literature, only 2 cases are reported of an odontogenic tumor with muscle differentiation: a benign odontogenic tumor (ameloblastoma) with differentiation into a rhabdomyosarcoma and an odontogenic sarcoma with smooth-muscle differentiation. The general practitioner should be aware that odontogenic lesions may be malignant, even though this is extremely rare, and all tissue removed from the oral cavity should be submitted for biopsy. (Quintessence Int 2009;40:837 842 ...
During the last few years several studies have been published dealing with the immunhistological properties of AOT. Immunohistochemically, the classical AOT phenotype is characterized by a cytokeratin (CK) profile similar to follicular cyst and/or oral or gingival epithelium based on positive staining with CK5, CK17 and CK19 [18]. On the other hand the classical AOT is negative for CK4, 10, 13 and 18. Recently, Crivelini et al. [19] detected the expression of cytokeratin 14 in AOT and concluded that this probably indicate its origin in the reduced dental epithelium which is also positive for staining with cytokeratin 14 antibodies. Positive reactions for amelogenin in limited areas in AOT are also reported as well as in ameloblasts and in the immature enamel matrix [20].. Interestingly, Takahashi et al. [21] observed a positive staining for iron-binding proteins (transferring, ferritin) and proteinase inhibitor (alpha-one-antitrypsin) in various cells of AOT indicating their role to the ...
Objective: To study hTERT mRHA expression in ameloblastoma (AB) and odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) and to investigate the genesis, development and biological characteristics of AB and OKC. Methods: hTERT mRNA expression in 54 cases of AB, 16 cases of OKC, and 7 cases with normal oral mucosa was detected by in situ hybridization. Results: The positive ratios of hTERT mRNA in AB, OKC and normal oral mucosa were 94.4% (51/54), 87.5% (14/16) and 14.3% (1/7) respectively. There was a significant statistical difference (P < 0.001). hTERT has no correlation (P > 0.05) with histological types, lesion locations or types of AB growth (unilocular or multilocular). hTERT mRNA was found in peripheral and stellate reticular cells, but not in keratinizing and degraded areas or granular cells. Conclusions: hTERT activity plays an important role in the genesis and development of AB and OKC. hTERT positivity is related to cell differentiation and clinical biological behavior. The positivity rate and signal ...
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have identified the mutations underlying a rare, understudied type of jaw tumor called ameloblastoma.
Najpogostejša vrsta (60 %) napadov so krčeviti, konvulzivni napadi.[15] Od tega jih dve tretjini začne kot žariščni napadi (ki se potem lahko spremenijo v generalizirane napade), ena tretjina med njimi pa se pojavi kot generalizirani napad.[15] Preostalih 40 % napadov je nekonvulzivnih. Primer te vrste je odsotnostni napad, ki se kaže kot zmanjšana raven zavesti in po navadi traja okoli 10 sekund.[16][17]. Pred žariščnim napadom pride pogosto do določenih doživetij, ki so znani kot avra.[18] Gre med drugim za čutilne (vidne, slušne ali vonja) doživljaje, ter psihične, avtonomske ali motorične fenomene.[16] Trzljaji se lahko začnejo v določeni skupini mišic in se potem razširijo na okoliške skupine mišic, proces, znan kot Jacksonski pohod.[19] Lahko pride do avtomatizmov; gre za nezavestno izzvane dejavnosti, ki so večinoma enostavni, ponavljajoči se gibi, kot je cmokanje, ali pa gre za bolj zapletene gibe, kot je pobiranje kake stvari s tal.[19].

Objective: In jawbones, ameloblastomas and odontogenic keratocysts share many clinical features in common such as aggressiveness, high recurrence rates and radical management options. Understanding the pathogenesis and biological aspects of these tumors would improve the success of diagnose and treatment procedures. The aim of this study was to exhibit the reasons of high recurrence rates and growth potentials of ameloblastomas and keratocystic odontogenic tumours by investigating the expression of IL-1? and IL-6 and IL-1? -889 gene polymorphism. IL-1? and IL-6 are shown as very effective tissue degrading factors in bone remodelling. Study Design: This study included 25 cases of ameloblastomas, 41 cases of keratocystic odontogenic tumors (parakeratinized odontogenic keratocysts) and 8 cases of orthokeratinized odontogenic keratocysts. All histological slides were stained immunohistochemically to show the expression of IL-1? and IL-6. Restriction fragment length analysis was used to investigate ...
Keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) is of clinical importance because of its pronounced tendency to recur. Among the factors that complicate KCOT management are its protean radiological presentations. KCOT showing involvement of the maxillary antrum in the absence of an associated impacted tooth is exceptionally rare. In these instances an odontogenic source of the lesion is often not suspected and the clinico-radiological features may be misinterpreted. We report such a case and highlight pertinent clinical and radiological features of antral KCOT ...
An odontogenic keratocyst is a rare and benign but locally aggressive developmental cyst. It most often affects the posterior mandible. It most commonly presents in the third decade of life.[1]. In the WHO/IARC classification of head and neck pathology, this clinical entity had been known for years as the odontogenic keratocyst; it was reclassified as keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) from 2005 to 2017.[2][3] In 2017 it reverted to the earlier name, as the new WHO/IARC classification reclassified OKC back into the cystic category.[4] The WHO/IARC classification no longer considers it a neoplasm, because the evidence supporting that hypothesis (for example, clonality) is considered insufficient. However, this is an area of hot debate within the head and neck pathology community, and some pathologists still regard OKC as a neoplasm despite the reclassification.. ...

Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) levels are increased in various tumors, particularly those involving the esophagus, stomach, breast, pancreas, lung, colon, skin, urinary bladder, prostate and head and neck. Nevertheless, the tumorigenic mechanisms of COX-2 overexpression still remain poorly understood and may include mechanisms that may act at different stages of the disease. Thus, the literature shows increasing evidence that overexpression of the COX-2 plays an important role in tumor growth and spread of tumors by interfering with different biological processes such as cell proliferation, cellular adhesion, immune surveillance, apoptosis, and angiogenesis. Furthermore, the expression of COX-2 might shed some light over the physiopathology and clinical behavior of tumors of the head and neck, including benign odontogenic neoplasms of the jaws with an aggressive behavior, such as keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT). Ultimately, the research of molecular markers associated with the biological ...
Primordial Odontogenic Tumor (POT) is a recently described odontogenic tumor characterized by a variably cellular loose fibrous tissue with areas similar to the dental papilla, covered by cuboidal to columnar epithelium that resembles the internal epithelium of the enamel organ, surrounded at least partly by a delicate fibrous capsule. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible histogenesis and biological behavior of this rare tumor by means of a wide immunohistochemical analysis of its epithelial and mesenchymal components. The immunoexpression of twenty-three different antibodies were evaluated in four cases of POT. The epithelial cells that cover the periphery of the tumor showed immunopositivity for Cytokeratins 14 and 19, while Amelogenin, Glut-1, MOC-31, Caveolin-1. Galectin-3, PITX2, p53, Bax, Bcl-2, Survivin and PTEN were variably expressed in focal areas. The mesenchymal component of the tumor was positive for Vimentin, Syndecan-1, PITX2, Endoglin (CD105), CD 34, Cyclin ...
About 200 cases of MNTI have been reported until now. It is found to characteristically occur in the maxilla, more so from the intraoral side. Bone destruction and displacement of teeth often occur because of the intraosseous location in the maxilla. Other sites are the skull, mandible and the brain. The lesion is usually solitary and the mucosa over the lesion is usually intact. It has got a typical bluish color due to the presence of melanin. Although it is a benign tumor with a 2% chance of malignancy, it is locally aggressive. The majority of MNTI patients (there is no sexual predilection) present in the 1 year of life. The children present with swelling in the oral cavity, which often hinders feeding. The differential diagnosis is ameloblastoma, odontoma, odontogenic myxoma, fibroma, rhabdomyosarcoma, EwingÌs sarcoma, LangerhansÌ cell histiocytosis (LCH), non-HodgkinÌs lymphoma ...

PDF: 129.05 Kb.. [Full text - PDF]. ABSTRACT. The myofibroma is a tumor that presents predominantly in head and neck, oral cavity are rare and even more intraosseous; in the mandible represent 12% of all soft tissue tumors in children. The presence of this injury is rare, affecting children and young people, it is noteworthy that in the mandible are even less frequent. Histopathologically looks similar to a hemangiopericytoma. The definitive diagnosis is based immunohistochemical panel consisting of antibodies to vimentin, dismina, CD34, HHP-35, SMA and S-100 P; giving positive vimentin and HHF-35 dismina with marker muscle actin smooth for the identification of myofibroblasts. Objective: Retrospective, longitudinal, observational study, from three cases of pediatric patients. Discussion: Intraosseous mandibular myofibroma is a rare tumor that only occurs in childhood, clinical and radiological features may suggest a presumptive diagnosis of ameloblastoma or myxoma, while histopathological ...

Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs) are jaw lesions that can be either sporadic or associated with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, which typically occurs as multiple, aggressive lesions that can lead to large areas of bone destruction and resorption and cause major impairment and even jaw fracture. To clarify the role of fibroblasts in the aggressivness of syndromic (S-) as compared with non-syndromic (NS-) KCOTs, we assessed fibroblasts derived from 16 S- and NS-KCOTs for differences in cell proliferation, multilineage differentiation potential, alkaline phosphatase activity, and osteoclastogenic potential. S-KCOT fibroblasts had proliferative and osteoclastogenic capacity higher than those from NS-KCOTs, as evidenced by higher numbers of tartrate-resistant acid-phosphatase-positive multinuclear cells, expression of cyclooxygenase 2, and ratio of receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappa B ligand to osteoprotegerin. The osteogenic potential was higher for S- than for NS-KCOT ...

Adamantinoma usually presents as an intraosseous, intracortical stage I-A sarcoma.. This low-grade, slowly-growing malignancy metastasizes in about 20 percent of cases by both hematogenous and lymphatic routes to other parts of the body, usually to the lungs or nearby lymph nodes.

Background: Dentigerous cyst is the most common type of developmental odontogenic cyst which originates from REE. It has the capacity for transformation to ameloblastoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. ki-67 and PCNA are two cell proliferation markers which can be both detected in cysts and tumors of epithelial origin. ...
INTRODUCTION: Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a benign neoplasm of mesenchymal origin with growth characteristics, clinical behaviour and radiographic presentation similar to those of ameloblastoma. It is an intraosseous neoplasm characterized by stellate and spindleshaped cells embedded in loose myxoid or mucoid extracellular matrix. Although sometimes bony islands that represent residual trabeculae are found throughout the lesion, the formation of osteocement-like calcified spherules within the tumour is an extremely rare phenomenon. REVIEW: We report a very rare case of an OM of the left maxilla exhibiting osteo-cementous metaplasia within the substance of the tumour and beyond the facial skeleton, in the nasopharynx. A review of all four similar cases previously reported in the literature is also presented. CONCLUSION: Whether or not this property to produce significant amounts of bone can be associated with a different biological behavior for this specific variant of OM remains to be proved with ...

Odontomas are the most common type of odontogenic tumors. They are included under the benign calcified odontogenic tumors. Odontomas are basically classified into two types, complex and compound odontomes. Various theories or etiological factors are been quoted for the occurrence of odontomes. Generally, they are asymptomatic. Occasionally, signs and symptoms relating to their presence do occur. The sole management depends upon the early diagnosis, histopathological examination and excision of these tissues. This article briefs regarding its classification, etiological factors, occurrence, differences between complex and compound odontomes, diagnosis and management ...
Odontogenic (or oral) tumors (OT) arise when there is a deviation from the normal process of teeth formation. Oral tumors are classified as neoplasms. The three most common odontogenic tumors are discussed in this article.

Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumors (CEOTs) and ghost cell odontogenic tumors (GCOTs) are characteristic odontogenic origin epithelial tumors which produce calcifying materials from transformed epithelial tumor cells. CEOT is a benign odontogenic tumor composed of polygonal epithelial tumor cells that show retrogressive calcific changes, amyloid-like deposition, and clear cytoplasm. Differentially, GCOTs are a group of transient tumors characterized by ghost cell presence, which comprise calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor (CCOT), dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT), and ghost cell odontogenic carcinoma (GCOC), all derived from calcifying odontogenic cysts (COCs). There is considerable confusion about COCs and GCOTs terminology, but these lesions can be classified as COCs or GCOTs, based on their cystic or tumorous natures, respectively. GCOTs include ameloblastomatous tumors derived from dominant odontogenic cysts classified as CCOTs, ghost cell-rich tumors producing dentinoid materials ...
Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia is a slow growing benign lesion which is extremely aggressive and infiltrative. It involves the periapical regions of both the maxilla and mandible with a diffuse distribution of mixed lucent-opaque osseous changes. The lesions are benign fibro-osseous lesions, which histologically, represent normal bone replaced by highly cellular fibrous connective tissue and cementum. Cemento-osseous dysplasia predominantly affects females greater than males (10-14:1) with a predilection for African American patients. Treatment of these lesions should be further radiographic follow-up without surgery unless the lesions become symptomatic, necrotic, or super-infected. Odontoma would also be in the differential as it is a hamartomatous malformation composed of odontogenic tissues. These lesions are usually discovered in the 2nd decade of life and can cause impaction, malpositioning or resorption of adjacent teeth. Ameloblastoma is the most common odontogenic tumor arising from ...
To investigate the relationship between osteofibrous dysplasia (OFD) and adamantinoma, we analyzed the expression of several proto-oncogene products and extracellular matrix proteins by immunohistochemistry and correlated our results with histological and ultrastructural findings. C-fos and c-jun, but not c-Met, were observed in OFD and in the fibrous and epithelial components of differentiated and classical adamantinomas. Staining for collagen IV, laminin and galectin-3, a laminin binding protein was seen in OFD and around cell nests in adamantinoma. E-, P-, and N-cadherin expression was found in all cases of classical adamantinoma, but not in differentiated adamantinoma or OFD. Osteonectin was detected in both the epithelial and fibrous components of adamantinomas, but osteopontin and osteocalcin were not seen in classical adamantinomas. The results show common expression of a number of oncoproteins and bone matrix proteins in adamantinoma and OFD, some of which are associated with mesenchymal-to

Loss of hard and soft tissue structures of the midface due to resection of odontogenic lesions can be associated with substancial functional and aesthetic deficits [1]. Conservative treatment due to simple resection and primary soft-tissue clouser will result in loss of soft and hard tissue support. Radical excision of tumor followed by adequate reconstruction can improve survival and provide more satisfactory functional and aesthetical outcome. Reconstruction of large maxillary defects following ablative surgery could be done by using vascularized bone transfer or, more often, primarily with simultaneous or delayed bone grafting [2]. Another option for maxillary reconstruction might be the use of computer-assisted prebended titanium meshes, which acts as physical three dimensional supports of soft and hard tissue [3]. Computer aided design/modeling (CAD/CAM) software that allows "mirroring" planning coupled to navigation systems has dramatically improved surgical strategies in reconstructive ...
The dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) is a rare benign odontogenic tumor histologically characterized by islands of odontogenic epithelium with the presence of ghost cells and dysplastic dentin at different stages of calcification. Central DGCT may have a locally invasive behavior with variable rates of recurrence. We report the distinguishing case of two central DGCTs localized bilaterally in the maxilla of a female patient in pediatric age, initially detected as complex odontomas associated with impacted teeth and surgically removed by means of piezoelectric bone surgery. After the removal of odontogenic lesions with the presence of calcified tissues, histopathological examination allows the identification of lesions that, although uncommon, show the potential of local invasiveness requiring an adequate follow-up in order to observe any sign of disease recurrence.. ...

Results The mean age at diagnosis for OFD was 13.5 years (1 to 49), 10.5 years (6 to 28) for OFD-like and 34 years (14 to 86) for adamantinoma. A total of 24 of the 42 patients with OFD (57%) have not required any treatment and have been managed with observation. A total of 18 of the 42 patients with OFD underwent surgery, 13 with curettage and five with resection. In all, three patients developed recurrence following curettage (23%) but none following resection. All these patients were cured with further limited surgery. A total of six patients initially diagnosed with OFD were subsequently found to have OFD-like adamantinoma. Of the ten patients initially diagnosed with OFD-like adamantinoma, three (30%) were managed with observation alone and seven underwent surgery, two with curettage and five with resection. Local recurrence arose in two patients, one each after curettage and resection. No patients with either OFD or an OFD-like adamantinoma developed metastases or had progression to ...
The papillomas induced in domestic rabbits with virus procured from cottontails undergo progressive changes in the direction of malignancy when they grow vigorously. From the beginning they exhibit the traits whereby tumors are characterized, and they have malignant potentialities. In seven animals of a group of ten carrying papillomas for more than 200 days, cancer has developed, and in an eighth a tumor of problematic malignancy has arisen. One of the remaining two rabbits died early in the cancer period, and the papillomas of the other eventually retrogressed. Ten cottontails with induced growths of much longer duration have not developed cancer.. The malignant tumors have all been acanthomatous in type, and have arisen directly from the papillomas by graded, continuous alterations. These have often gone further after malignancy has been attained, and have eventuated in great anaplasia. Metastasis has been frequent, and transplantation to another host has proved successful. Individual growths ...

Odontogenic fibroma (OF) is a rare benign odontogenic tumor deriving from the dental mesenchymal tissue and accounting for less than 5% of all odontogenic tumors. This paper presents an aggressive histologically diagnosed central odontogenic fibroma (COF) in a 17-year-old girl characterized by asymptomatic rapid growth with massive replenishment of the left maxillary sinus. We carried out a review of the literature to retrieve all published cases of COF especially focused on radiographic aspects and surgical treatment of cases characterized by clinical aggressive behaviour, as we observed in our patient. Search strategy included retrieval of English language papers, published from 1966 to today, in dental journals on MEDLINE/PubMed and EMBASE, and hand-searching of the bibliography of retrieved papers. Sixty-nine cases of COF were identified from 1954 to 2003 and a new one was added. We have compared characteristics of COFs according to age, gender, location, clinical and radiographic findings ...
1) Melanotic neuroectodermal tumour of infancy is a rare, rapidly expanding and pigmented tumour in infancy.. (2) The first case was described in 1918 by Krompecher. (3) In 1966 Borello and Gorlin first named the tumour as melanotic neuroectodermal tumour of infancy as the case they reported had high urinary excretion of vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) which suggested the tumour might be an origin of neural crest.. (4) These tumours commonly occur in the head and neck regions of children under the age of one.. (5) Melanotic neuroectodermal tumour of infancy is a nonulcerative, painless, and pigmented lesions, but the pigmentation cannot always be seen through the covering tissues. (6) A broad nomenclature has been used for this tumour in the literature: Congenital melanocarcinoma, retinal anlage tumor, pigmented congenital epulis, melanotic progonoma, melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy, pigmented ameloblastoma, pigmented teratoma, atypical melanoblastoma, melanotic adamantinoma, retinal ...
