Study of the cell biology and biochemistry of cherubism. (1/25)

AIMS: To establish whether the multinucleate cells in lesions of patients with cherubism are also osteoclasts and if this is the case whether they were responsive to calcitonin; to carry out cytogenetic studies on two members of the same family affected by cherubism in an attempt to identify any major chromosomal defects; and to perform an in-depth modern biochemical study of four children in the same family. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Four related children with cherubism were studied. Tissue taken from one of the children at elective decompression of an optic nerve was submitted to in vitro bone resorption studies. Cytogenetic studies were done on two of the children and biochemical studies on all four. RESULTS: The multinucleate cells in the cherubic lesions were shown to be osteoclasts since they synthesised tartrate resistant acid phosphatase, expressed the vitronectin receptor, and resorbed bone. Bone resorption by the cultured multinucleate cells was significantly inhibited by calcitonin. High resolution cytogenetic studies failed to detect any chromosomal abnormalities in two children with cherubism. The biochemistry profile of all four children with cherubism showed that serum calcium, parathyroid hormone, parathyroid related hormone, calcitonin, and alkaline phosphatase were within normal levels. Urine analysis of pyridinium and deoxypyridinium cross links, hydroxyproline, and calcium in relation to urine creatinine were measured to assess bone resorption in these children, and the values were at the upper end of the normal range in all four. CONCLUSIONS: Further studies are required to determine whether calcitonin treatment will control this grossly deforming disease until the time when the physiological changes that occur at puberty rectify the pathology. It is not recommended that biochemical markers of bone resorption are used in isolation to monitor the activity of cherubism in individuals because the results are based on a small number of children and because of reports of marked interindividual variation in the levels of these markers, particularly in children.  (+info)

The gene for cherubism maps to chromosome 4p16.3. (2/25)

Cherubism is a rare familial disease of childhood characterized by proliferative lesions within the mandible and maxilla that lead to prominence of the lower face and an appearance reminiscent of the cherubs portrayed in Renaissance art. Resolution of these bony abnormalities is often observed after puberty. Many cases are inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion, although several cases without a family history have been reported. Using two families with clinically, radiologically, and/or histologically proved cherubism, we have performed a genomewide linkage search and have localized the gene to chromosome 4p16.3, with a maximum multipoint LOD score of 5. 64. Both families showed evidence of linkage to this locus. Critical meiotic recombinants place the gene in a 3-cM interval between D4S127 and 4p-telomere. Within this region a strong candidate is the gene for fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3); mutations in this gene have been implicated in a diverse set of disorders of bone development.  (+info)

The gene for cherubism maps to chromosome 4p16. (3/25)

Cherubism is an autosomal dominant disorder that may be related to tooth development and eruption. It is a disorder of age-related bone remodeling, mostly limited to the maxilla and the mandible, with loss of bone in the jaws and its replacement with large amounts of fibrous tissue. We have used a genomewide search with a three-generation family and have established linkage to chromosome 4p16. Three other families affected with cherubism were also genotyped and were mapped to the same locus. The combined LOD score is 4.21 at a recombination fraction of 0, and the locus spans an interval of approximately 22 cM.  (+info)

Cherubism in siblings: a case report. (4/25)

Cherubism is a non-neoplastic bone disease characterized by clinically evident bilateral, painless enlargements of the jaws that are said to give the patient a cherubic appearance. Cherubism may appear in solitary cases or in many members of the same family, often in multiple generations. On radiography, the lesions exhibit bilateral multilocular radiolucent areas. Histopathologic evaluation reveals proliferating fibrous connective tissue containing numerous multinucleated giant cells. Since the first description of this condition in 1933, almost 200 cases have been reported. We describe cherubism in 2 siblings and briefly review the literature on this subject.  (+info)

Temporal bone involvement in cherubism: case report. (5/25)

Cherubism is a rare benign hereditary fibro-osseous disease involving the mandible and maxilla. We report a case of cherubism in a 10-year-old girl for which the panoramic radiograph was insufficient for diagnosis of the disease. Clinical, histological, and radiological findings were discussed. The CT was taken and it confirmed not only the involvement of the jaws but also of the temporal bone. This was not found in the conventional radiograph.  (+info)

A novel mutation in the SH3BP2 gene causes cherubism: case report. (6/25)

BACKGROUND: Cherubism is a rare hereditary multi-cystic disease of the jaws, characterized by its typical appearance in early childhood, and stabilization and remission after puberty. It is genetically transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion and the gene coding for SH3-binding protein 2 (SH3BP2) may be involved. CASE PRESENTATION: We investigated a family consisting of 21 members with 3 female affected individuals with cherubism from Northern China. Of these 21 family members, 17 were recruited for the genetic analysis. We conducted the direct sequence analysis of the SH3BP2 gene among these 17 family members. A disease-causing mutation was identified in exon 9 of the gene. It was an A1517G base change, which leads to a D419G amino acid substitution. CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, the A1517G mutation has not been reported previously in cherubism. This finding is novel.  (+info)

Jawing about TNF: new hope for cherubism. (7/25)

Mutations in the SH3-domain binding protein 2 (SH3BP2) are known to cause a rare childhood disorder called cherubism that is characterized by inflammation and bone loss in the jaw, but the mechanism has remained unclear. In this issue, Ueki et al. (Ueki et al., 2007) now demonstrate that a cherubism mutation activates mouse Sh3bp2 resulting in enhanced production of the cytokine TNF-alpha by myeloid cells, leading to both bone loss and inflammation.  (+info)

Increased myeloid cell responses to M-CSF and RANKL cause bone loss and inflammation in SH3BP2 "cherubism" mice. (8/25)

While studies of the adaptor SH3BP2 have implicated a role in receptor-mediated signaling in mast cells and lymphocytes, they have failed to identify its function or explain why SH3BP2 missense mutations cause bone loss and inflammation in patients with cherubism. We demonstrate that Sh3bp2 "cherubism" mice exhibit trabecular bone loss, TNF-alpha-dependent systemic inflammation, and cortical bone erosion. The mutant phenotype is lymphocyte independent and can be transferred to mice carrying wild-type Sh3bp2 alleles through mutant fetal liver cells. Mutant myeloid cells show increased responses to M-CSF and RANKL stimulation, and, through mechanisms of increased ERK 1/2 and SYK phosphorylation/activation, they form macrophages that express high levels of TNF-alpha and osteoclasts that are unusually large. M-CSF and RANKL stimulation of myeloid cells that overexpress wild-type SH3BP2 results in similar large osteoclasts. This indicates that the mutant phenotype reflects gain of SH3BP2 function and suggests that SH3BP2 is a critical regulator of myeloid cell responses to M-CSF and RANKL stimulation.  (+info)

Cherubism is a rare genetic disorder that causes prominence in the lower portion in the face. The name is derived from the temporary chubby-cheeked resemblance to putti, often confused with cherubs, in Renaissance paintings. The appearance of people with the disorder is caused by a loss of bone in the mandible which the body replaces with excessive amounts of fibrous tissue. In most cases, the condition fades as the child grows, but in a few even rarer cases the condition continues to deform the affected persons face. Cherubism also causes premature loss of the primary teeth and uneruption of the permanent teeth. The condition Cherubism is a rare autosomal dominant disease of the maxilla and mandible. Approximately 200 cases have been reported by medical journals with the majority being males. Cherubism is usually first diagnosed around age 7 and continues through puberty and may or may not continue to advance with age. The degrees of Cherubism vary from mild to severe. Osteoclastic and ...
surrounding the eye socket) causes the eyeball to tip upward. The name of the condition is derived from cherub (angelic looking, as depicted in Renaissance paintings).. The medical community currently believes that the condition develops when a gene that governs the function of cells that buildup bone (osteoblasts) and breakdown bone (osteoclasts) works in an atypical manner. Usually osteoblasts and osteoclasts build up and breakdown bone in a balanced way, so that the strength of bone is maintained. Persons with the genetic make up of cherubism appear to breakdown bone at an increased rate and to build it up in an atypical way (through large multinucleated cells). The imbalanced osteoblast and osteoclast activity appears to lead to the formation of fibrous tissue, which appears as bubbles or spongy in radiographs. The lesions of cherubism are graded into levels indicating the involvement of the mandible and/or maxilla, the resorption of the roots of teeth, and the involvement of the ...
Discussion. Cherubism results from replacement of bone with multilocular cysts due to osteoblasts and osteoclasts malfunctioning (Figs. 2 and 3, Supplementary Material). As already mentioned it represent a benign fibro-osseous pathology and it should be distinguished from central giant cell granuloma (CGCG), multiple giant-cell lesion syndrome, fibrous dysplasia, brown tumors and Ramon syndrome and hyperparathyroidism.6 Differential diagnosis is based on specific clinical, radiological and anatomo-pathological features.. Although the severity of pathology, no effective treatment exists. Therapy strategies include: (a) surgical treatment; (b) medical treatment.. In relation to surgery, the strategy of wait and see is the most commonly used in these patients (Table 1, Supplementary Material). Surgery before puberty is only recommended in case of serious deformity or severe psychological impact.7. In relation to medical treatment, there is no evidence for an effective medical treatment. Recently, ...

Cherubism is a rare benign (non-neoplastic) hereditary condition of childhood, which is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and is characterized by bilateral expansion of the mandible, maxilla or both. Giving them a characteristic cherubic appearance. The treatment of cherubism is still controversial and is said that the disease regresses itself and after regressing if any asymmetry is left then the bony deformity can be corrected by decortications of bone and osseous shaving. This article reviews the recent development in the literature of cherubism ...
Cherubism is a rare genetic disorder of the jaw characterized by bilateral, symmetrical enlargement of the mandible and/or maxilla resulting from rapid bone degradation followed by extensive bone remodeling with multilocular benign cysts. As a consequence, the skin is stretched over the classically swollen cheeks, pulling the lower eyelids down and exposing a line of sclera so that the eyes appear to be raised heavenward. This facial appearance of the upwardly turning eyes and swollen cheeks has been described as resembling the faces of cherubs found in Renaissance art. The variable cherubism phenotype can range from absence of any clinical features to severe mandibular and maxillary overgrowth causing respiratory, vision, speech, and swallowing concerns. Typical age of onset is 2 to 5 years, with the jaw lesions progressing gradually until puberty when the swelling spontaneously stabilizes and then regresses. Residual radiographic changes can last into the fourth decade. Associated dental ...
Patients may look normal in the first years of life. The initial changes are characterized by unilateral fullness of the cheeks, most often starting during the second or third year of life (but later onset is possible). Eventually, both mandibular rami and angles are involved, along with the maxilla. The growth rate is fastest during the first 2 years, then slows down and finally regresses during puberty. Hypertelorism is a constant sign. There is also an association with hyperplasia of cervical lymph nodes. The teeth are often loose and irregularly positioned. Extragnathic skeletal involvement is rare. Conservative management is recommended because it is a benign, self-limited condition. However, curettage of tissue hindering nasal breathing or function of the tongue may be indicated. Surgery may be requested for cosmetic reasons. Patients are mentally normal. ...

Small business owners take note, with the Section 179 deduction small companies save big! Business owners who acquire equipment for their business, including medical equipment including EKG machines and spirometers, can elect for a section 179 tax saving.. This tax saving allows a small business to obtain an enhanced deduction in a single tax year, rather than a little at a time over a number of years. This deduction is known by its section in the tax code: a section 179 deduction.. Under this section, businesses that spend less than $2,000,000 a year on qualified equipment may write off up to $500,000. Because this section is designed to benefit small companies, this deduction phases out dollar for dollar when a business purchases more than $2,000,000 in one year..

I dont follow high fashion very closely, but look who helped Prada show the Mens Fall line: (Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Timothy Roth, Emile Hirsch & William Dafoe)
Giant cell lesions are locally aggressive intraosseous neoplasms with capacity to metastasize. The role of immune surveillance in the pathophysiology of giant cell lesions is poorly understood, and understanding what role the immune system plays in giant cell lesions may lead to the development of more effective treatment. The aim of this study was to explore the role of immune surveillance in giant cell lesions by examining the expression of the HLA class I and class II antigens and tumor infiltrating lymphocytes. In addition, we examined the role of the immune modulating surface antigen B7-H3, which belongs to the B7 superfamily, a group of molecules that modulates T-cell responses.. ...

This paper has two parts. In the first part, I demonstrate that, in the absence of price and wage bounds, monetary models do not have current equilibria - and so lack predictive content - for a wide range of possible policy rules and/or beliefs about future equilibrium outcomes. This non-existence problem disappears in models in which firms face (arbitrarily loose) finite upper bounds on prices or positive lower bonds on nominal wages. In the second part, I study the properties of a class of dynamic monetary models with these kinds of bounds on prices/wages. Among other results, I show that these models imply that the Phillips curve is L-shaped, are consistent with the existence of permanently inefficiently low output (secular stagnation), and do not imply that forward guidance is surprisingly effective. I show too that economies with lower nominal wage floors have even worse equilibrium outcomes in welfare terms. It follows that models with arbitrarily low but positive nominal wage floors are ...
The central giant cell granuloma is felt to be a benign lesion that only occurs in the jaws, though similar lesions occur in the fingers and toes. Its relationship to the giant cell tumor of the long bones is unknown, but it is felt that the giant cell tumor represents a more aggressive and possibly malignant lesion that rarely occurs in the jaws, if at all. Other authorities feel that these lesions represent a spectrum of disease from malignant to very benign. Central giant cell granulomas normally occur in the anterior part of the jaws (in areas where deciduous teeth were present) and normally occur in the second and third decades, although they have been noted in all decades of life. Histologically similar, or even identical, appearances may occur in hyperparathyroidism, cherubism, and aneurysmal bone cysts, which should normally be ruled out prior to establishing the diagnosis. When the central giant cell granuloma was first identified as a distinct lesion (previously, it had been included ...
Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a benign intraosseous lesion predominantly involving the mandible in young females. Exact etiology of this lesion is controversial and remains unknown. However, three competing theories are prevailing which states that it could be a reactive lesion, a developmental anomaly or a benign neoplasm. CGCG has been grouped into non-aggressive and aggressive variants on the basis of clinical, radiographic and histopathologic features. This paper reported a case of 29 year old female patient, presented with complain of pain and swelling in right vestibule region for one and half month. Based on clinicoradiologic findings, provisional diagnosis of aggressive CGCG was given and the lesion was surgically intervened. Histopathological report revealed central giant cell granuloma. The healing was uneventful and no complication noted till date. The purpose of this article is to review the clinical, radiological, histopathological features and management of aggressive CGCG ...
This report suggests that early exfoliation of primary teeth can be a side effect of bone resorption in patients with CAH. Early exfoliation of the primary dentition and bone loss is an uncommon finding in children. However, whenever it occurs is important to diagnose the patient early because it is usually correlated with serious systematic diseases.18. Premature loss of primary teeth has not been reported in the past in a case of CAH. However, CAH should be included in the differential diagnosis of premature loss of teeth because disturbance in dental development may be the first symptom of this disorder.13 Other systematic diseases that may cause premature exfoliation of teeth include hypophosphatasia, aggressive periodontitis, Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome, Singleton-Merten syndrome, Hajdu-Cheney syndrome immunodeficiency (neutropenia, leukocyte adhesion deficiency, leukemia), Langerhans histocytosis, diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, cherubism, dentinal dysplasia, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, ...

Symptoms of CMT usually begin in early childhood or early adulthood, but can begin later. Some people do not experience symptoms until their early 30s or 40s. Usually, the initial symptom is foot drop early in the course of the disease. This can also cause hammer toe, where the toes are always curled. Wasting of muscle tissue of the lower parts of the legs may give rise to a "stork leg" or "inverted champagne bottle" appearance. Weakness in the hands and forearms occurs in many people as the disease progresses. Loss of touch sensation in the feet, ankles, and legs, as well as in the hands, wrists, and arms occurs with various types of the disease. Early- and late-onset forms occur with 'on and off' painful spasmodic muscular contractions that can be disabling when the disease activates. High-arched feet (pes cavus) or flat-arched feet (pes planus) are classically associated with the disorder.[3] Sensory and proprioceptive nerves in the hands and feet are often damaged, while unmyelinated pain ...

The classical LFS malignancies - sarcoma, cancers of the breast, brain and adrenal glands - comprise about 80% of all cancers that occur in this syndrome.. The risk of developing any invasive cancer (excluding skin cancer) is ~50% by age 30 (1% in the general population) and is 90% by age 70. Early onset breast cancer accounts for 25% of all the cancers in this syndrome. This is followed by soft tissue sarcomas (20%), bone sarcoma (15%) and brain tumors - especially glioblastomas - (13%). Other tumours seen in this syndrome include leukemia, lymphoma and adrenocortical carcinoma.. ~90% of females with LFS develop breast cancer by age 60 years; the majority of these occur before age 45 years. Females with this syndrome have almost a 100% lifetime risk of developing cancer. This compares with 73% for affected males. The difference may be due to much smaller breast tissue in males as well as increased estrogen levels in females.. The risks of sarcoma, female breast cancer and haematopoietic ...

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first pediatric case of severe FGF23 tumor-induced rickets secondary to a CGCG of the maxillary bones. Retrospectively, we think the initial limp was the first sign of weakness associated with rickets. We assumed that the tumor was the source of production of FGF23 because rickets started with the onset of the CGCG, coinciding with an extremely high FGF23 serum level. Also, the rickets and the need for phosphorus supplementation improved as the tumors size gradually decreased. The limitation of our case is that we could not provide the final proof of concept, because we did not perform tests looking for FGF23 production in the surgical samples.. TIO is a rare condition first described by McCance1 in 1947 as a paraneoplastic disorder characterized by phosphaturia, hypophosphatemia, low serum levels of 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D, ...
