A 42-year-female patient presented with a swelling on the left side of the face for the past 10 years. The radiograph shows multilocular radiolucency with evidence of root resorption. Histopathology reveals fibrous connective tissue exhibiting numerous odontogenic epithelial islands with peripheral tall columnar cells showing a reversal of polarity. The center of the island shows stellate reticulum like cells. The connective tissue also shows the presence of extensive coarse granular eosinophilic cells distributed throughout the section...

Primary intraosseous odontogenic squamous cell carcinoma (PIOSCC) is a rare tumor. The incidence is low, and approximately 200 cases are reported in literature. The etiology is associated with the malignant degeneration of embryological remains. Differential diagnosis includes alveolar carcinomas, jaw metastases from other locations, odontogenic tumors, and tumors of the maxillary sinus. However, the diagnosis could be delayed due to the absence of symptoms in early stages. Surgery represents the first choice treatment...

Lymphadenopathy may be caused due to various reasons, most common being infections, neoplasms and immunologic disorders. Considering the frequent use of biomaterials in dentistry, it is not uncommon to find allergic reactions in the oral mucosa. Delayed-type hypersensitivity is one mechanism of allergy, which may manifest as either contact stomatitis or rarely present as only lymphadenopathy. An unusual case of unilateral submandibular gland swelling with associated lymphadenopathy during orthodontic treatment is reported...

Cherubism is a rare hereditary developmental condition of the jaws and generally inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. It is also known as familial fibrous dysplasia of the jaws, familial multilocular cystic disease and hereditary fibrous dysplasia of the jaws. The gene for cherubism is mapped to chromosome 4p16.3 may lead to pathologic activation of osteoclasts and disruption of jaw morphogenesis. The lesion usually appears between 2 and 5 years shows a predilection for the mandible and causes a bilateral swelling giving rise to a cherubic chubby appearance...

BACKGROUND: In the literature, many studies were attempted to analyze the distribution of oral reactive lesions in terms of age, gender and location. However, very few studies have focused on the detailed histopathological features of these reactive lesions of oral cavity. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to document the occurrence, distribution and various histopathological features of reactive gingival lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study is a retrospective archival review of reactive gingival lesions of oral cavity such as irritational fibroma (IF), inflammatory gingival hyperplasia (IGF), pyogenic granuloma (PG), peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) and peripheral ossifying fibroma involving gingival tissues...

The Juxtaoral Organ of Chievitz is a normal anatomical structure located within the soft tissue in the buccotemporal fascia on the medial surface of the ascending ramus. This enigmatic vestigial structure is considered to be of neuroepithelial origin with no known function. As a matter of fact, JOOC is one of the most treacherous pitfalls in surgical pathology with respect to lesions in the head and neck area. Hence the basic aim of this short communication is to reveal the importance about this organ and enlighten the oral pathologist about this histopathological structure, thus preventing extensive and unnecessary investigations...

Oral pulse granuloma (PG) is a rare lesion that presents as a foreign body granulomatous reaction to implanted food particles of plant or vegetable origin. It is classified as a central or a peripheral lesion depending on the location. Rarely, a central oral PG may be associated with a cyst or tumor, thus leading to a deceptive histopathological picture. This is exemplified in the present case of 27-year-old female patient who reported with a swelling on the left posterior region of mandible which was diagnosed as ameloblastoma...

Calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) is a term used broadly to define lesions which were either cystic/solid in nature. However, a new term defining dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT), as its neoplastic counterpart, histopathologically showed the presence of dentinoid-like areas, ghost cells and ameloblastomatous-like odontogenic epithelium. This possesses a great challenge to an oral pathologist in diagnosing and differentiating it from solid multicystic ameloblastoma or COCs so as to ensure the biological behavior and pathogenesis behind its multifaceted nature...

Central odontogenic fibroma (COF) represents a rare group of benign odontogenic tumor, while dentigerous cyst (DC), on the other hand, is the odontogenic cyst that encloses the crown of an unerupted tooth. A combination of COF and DC is rare and not reported in literature till date. The aim of this paper is to report a case of COF occurring concurrently with DC. The simultaneous occurrence of COF and DC raises the question of whether it is a collision tumor or their simultaneous occurrence is just a coincidence...

Dhanu G Rao, Malay Vishnuprasad Trivedi, Raghavendra Havale, S P Shrutha
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), previously known as histiocytosis X, is an uncommon hematological disorder affecting infants and young children. It is the condition characterized by uncontrolled stimulation and proliferation of normal antigen presenting cells, Langerhans cells. Because of its relatively low incidence, limited data are available regarding the epidemiology of LCH, with estimation of 2-5 cases per million inhabitants per year. The purpose of this report is to describe the case of LCH in the 3-year-old male child with multiple focal involvements of bones and to discuss clinical, radiological and histopathological features of LCH and role of the dental surgeon in diagnosing and managing such lesions...

Inflammatory pseudotumor is a term given to different neoplastic and nonneoplastic entities that have a common histological appearance, which comprises spindle cell proliferation with a prominent chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an uncommon lesion with distinctive clinical, pathological and molecular features and is considered to be pseudotumor for the past two decades due to its appearance. IMT is an intermediate soft tissue tumor which was first observed in lungs...

Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma (MC) is a rare variety of chondrosarcoma (CS), which is both clinically unique and histologically distinct compared with conventional CS. Maxillofacial MCs are aggressive, have a tendency for recurrence and significant distant metastasis to lung and bone, and are associated with overall poor prognosis. Histopathologically, it is a biphasic tumor comprising of islands of hyaline cartilage with undifferentiated small round cells. Here, we present an interesting case of MC involving the left half of maxilla along with a brief review of the relevant literature...

Srikanth Dhanala, Nagaraju Tanneru
We present an extremely rare case of noninfiltrating angiolipoma (AL) of the buccal mucosa in a 90-year-old patient reaching a size of 14 cm × 10 cm. AL is rare in the soft tissues of oral cavity, and till date, only 22 cases have been reported, including our case. If size be taken into consideration, our case can be considered to be the first in literature to reach this massive size. Surgical excision of the tumor mass was performed. The histopathological findings confirmed the diagnosis of noninfiltrating AL...

Neurilemmoma, neurinoma or schwannoma is a benign tumor of neurogenic origin, arising from the myelin sheath of a neuron. Head and neck region accounts for 25%-48% of these tumors reported till date. On the contrary, intraoral sites form only 1% of the cases accounted. Although a few cases of intraoral neurilemoma of mental nerve has been reported in English literature, none has been reported to arise from the terminal fibers of the mental nerve. In this particular article, we present a case were the tumor was noted in the lower labial mucosa...

Spindle cell carcinoma (SpCC), a variant of squamous cell carcinoma, is a biphasic malignant neoplasm that occurs mainly in the upper aerodigestive tract. It is uncommon in oral cavity, accounting for <1% of all tumors in oral cavity. Furthermore, it is uncommon for oral potentially malignant disorders such as leukoplakia to undergo transformation into SpCC. In this paper, we are reporting a case of SpCC of buccal mucosa in a 35-year-old female who was previously diagnosed with oral leukoplakia past 6 months...
