Hereditary familial polyposis and Gardner's syndrome: contribution of the odonto-stomatology examination in its diagnosis and a case description. (1/17)Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and its phenotype variant, Gardner's syndrome, constitute a rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder. They are characterised by the development, generally during the second and third decades of life, of multiple adenomatous polyps in the colon and rectum. These polyps have a high risk of subsequently becoming malignant, which normally occurs in the third and fourth decades of life. The phenotypical features of FAP can be very variable. As well as colorectal polyps, these individuals can present with extra-colonic symptoms, among which are particularly: gastro-duodenal polyps, dermoid and epidermoid cysts, desmoid tumours, congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium, disorders of the maxillary and skeletal bones and dental anomalies. In this paper the most important aspects of this syndrome are reviewed, showing an example based on a well documented clinical case. The importance of odonto-stomatological examinations should be pointed out, among others, as a means of reaching a presumptive diagnosis, whose confirmation is vital to the patient. (+info)
Clinical, radiographic, biochemical and histological findings of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia and report of a case. (2/17)Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia has been described as a condition that characteristically affects the jaws of middle-aged black women. It usually manifests as multiple radiopaque cementum-like masses distributed throughout the jaws. This condition has also been classified as gigantiform cementoma, chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis, sclerosing osteitis, multiple estenosis and sclerotic cemental masses. The authors present a case of an uncomplicated florid cemento-osseous dysplasia in a 48-year-old black woman. Multiple sclerotic masses with radiolucent border in the mandible were identified radiographically. Histopathologic findings revealed formation of calcified dense sclerotic masses similar to cementum. All clinical, radiographic, biochemical and histological features were suggestive of the diagnosis of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia. (+info)
Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia: Review and report of two cases. (3/17)Only three Indian patients of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia have been reported (less than 2%), according to the review of recent literature (2003). This makes the occurrence of FCOD a relatively rare phenomenon. The age group may vary from 19-76 years and typically presents in the fourth and fifth decade. In most of the cases, patients do not have family history of the disease. We report two cases showing classic radiologic features. The diagnosis of our cases were made radiographically. (+info)
Dental benign cementomas in three horses. (4/17)Cementoma is a very rare odontogenic neoplasm of mesenchymal origin. Clinically, in 3 horses, multiple bony enlargements of the upper and lower jaw extending into the oral cavity were observed. Radiographically, multiple, well-circumscribed, radiopaque masses surrounding the roots of the upper and lower incisors or an upper premolar tooth were present. Due to malocclusion and local pain, single teeth were extracted in each case. Grossly, a hard grayish-white mass surrounding the root of the incisors and the premolars was identified. Histopathologically, the tumors consisted of excessive deposition of cementum-like tissue. Cells, resembling cementoblasts, lined irregularly shaped lacunae, which were present in the tumor tissue, and showed minimal cellular pleomorphism. Mitotic figures were not present. Macroscopically and histologically, all 3 equine cases displayed great similarities to cementomas in other species. However, due to their high degree of differentiation, hypercementosis must be considered as a differential diagnosis. (+info)

Cementoma is a rare benign tumor that arises from the cementum, which is the hard, calcified tissue that covers the roots of teeth. It typically occurs in the jawbone, particularly in the posterior mandible (lower jaw) and maxilla (upper jaw). Cementomas are usually slow-growing and may not cause any symptoms until they become large enough to cause pressure on surrounding structures or cause pain. They are usually diagnosed through imaging studies such as X-rays or CT scans. Treatment for cementomas typically involves surgical removal of the tumor, which may involve the removal of the affected tooth or jawbone. In some cases, cementomas may recur after surgery, and additional treatment may be necessary.
Bone cysts are fluid-filled cavities that develop in the bones. They are also known as osteocysts or osteolytic cysts. Bone cysts can occur in any bone in the body, but they are most commonly found in the long bones of the arms and legs, such as the femur and tibia. There are several types of bone cysts, including simple bone cysts, aneurysmal bone cysts, unicameral bone cysts, and giant cell tumors. Simple bone cysts are the most common type and are usually benign. They are filled with clear fluid and do not cause any symptoms unless they grow large enough to compress surrounding bone or nerves. Aneurysmal bone cysts are larger and more aggressive than simple bone cysts. They are filled with blood and can cause pain, swelling, and bone deformities. Unicameral bone cysts are also known as solitary bone cysts and are usually found in children. They are filled with clear fluid and do not cause any symptoms unless they grow large enough to compress surrounding bone or nerves. Giant cell tumors are rare and are usually found in adults. They are filled with abnormal cells and can cause pain, swelling, and bone deformities. Treatment for bone cysts depends on the type and size of the cyst, as well as the location and severity of symptoms. Treatment options may include observation, medication, surgery, or radiation therapy.
Aneurysmal bone cysts are benign (non-cancerous) bone tumors that occur most commonly in children and young adults. They are characterized by the presence of a fluid-filled sac (cyst) in the bone, which can cause the bone to weaken and become fragile. The cysts are often found in the long bones of the arms and legs, but can also occur in the spine, pelvis, and other bones. Aneurysmal bone cysts are thought to be caused by abnormal blood vessel growth in the bone. The cysts can grow rapidly and cause pain, swelling, and bone deformities. In some cases, the cysts may also cause fractures or other complications. Treatment for aneurysmal bone cysts typically involves draining the fluid from the cyst and then filling the cyst with a substance that helps to stabilize the bone. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the cyst or stabilize the affected bone. The prognosis for aneurysmal bone cysts is generally good, and most people are able to recover fully with appropriate treatment.
