Pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma (PMH) represents a multicentric recently characterized tumor type, generally presenting in young adults, of postulated vascular origin and intermediate malignancy. This entity tends to arise in the deep-seated dermal-subcutaneous locations, preferentially limited to one anatomic site, and may extend secondary to bone. PMH restricted to the skeletal system is rare. To our knowledge, only 19 cases with description of both histologic and clinical findings have been reported to date...

Subchondral lesions are the result of osseous modifications seen in a different array of pathologies such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, calcium pyrophosphate deposition, and osteonecrosis. The physiopathologic changes in all of the aforementioned pathologies are not clear yet. What is clear is that the development of a cystic change in the subchondral bone can cause pain and can lead to modification of the activity of daily life. To provide relief and treatment for such a condition, there are different options with joint replacement as last resort when the cyst develops in communication with the joint; if the cyst is not in communication with the joint, it is possible to perform a bioplasty as we present in this technical report...

Gardner syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease. It is characterized by a combination of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) of the intestine with extraintestinal changes as multiple osteomas and fibromas. Odontogenic Myxoma is a benign, aggressive intraosseous neoplasm. We report a rare case of a 14-year-old male patient with Gardner's syndrome and odontogenic myxoma, which involved the entire left half of the mandible, resulting in a gross facial deformity, within a span of one year.

OBJECTIVE: Canine impaction is a dental anomaly involving intraosseous displacement of the unerupted tooth. This situation is of significant importance causing orthodontic, surgical and interceptive problems. Trauma in the incisor area is a possible cause of the displacement of the tooth bud of the permanent canine resulting in the deviated eruption path. The aim of this article is to present two clinical cases with diagnosis of maxillary canine displacement and impaction in the incisor region after a traumatic injury during childhood, discussing treatment possibilities and outcomes achieved after orthodontic treatment...

A 19-year-old female student presented with painless, progressive proptosis in the right eye for the past six months causing significant cosmetic blemish and double vision. Clinical evaluation revealed normal visual acuity, normal pupillary reflex, severe proptosis, and dystopia. Orbital imaging revealed a heterogeneous mass in superior orbit displacing the globe inferiorly and causing extensive bony erosion of frontal bone superiorly and invading the frontal sinus. Excision biopsy was performed with en-bloc removal of the tumor...

OBJECTIVE: Vascular malformations occur more rarely in bones than in soft tissue, with 0.5-1.0% of all intraosseous tumors occurring in the mandible. We report a diagnostically challenging case of unilocular venous malformation of the mandible. CASE REPORT: A 76-year-old man presented with a heterogeneous, unilocular, radiolucent lesion with a well-defined border. Panoramic radiography and computed tomography imaging revealed a continuous white line on the cortical bone at the inferior border of the left mandibular molar region...

A traumatic neuroma is an uncommon pseudotumor associated with peripheral nerves and occurs following surgery or trauma. It mostly occurs in the extraosseous soft tissue; traumatic neuromas of intraosseous origin are extremely rare. We herein report an unusual case of an intraosseous traumatic neuroma associated with the inferior alveolar nerve that was incidentally found on a panoramic image. In this report, we place special emphasis on the imaging features of traumatic neuroma, including the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging findings...

Intraosseous (IO) needles are used in critically ill patients when it is not possible to quickly obtain venous access. While they allow for immediate access, IO infusions are associated with complications including fractures, infections, and compartment syndrome. We present a case where point-of-care ultrasound was used to quickly identify a malfunctioning IO needle that resulted in compartment syndrome of the lower extremity.

The purpose of this study was to determine the rate of malposition of the femoral cortical button during anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and to present a classification system of femoral cortical button positioning that is both accurate and reproducible. A total of 361 patients undergoing primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction during a 5-year period were identified, and postoperative button position was graded as follows: reduced and congruent (entirety of button <2 mm from cortex); reduced and incongruent (part of button <2 mm from cortex, part of button >2 mm from cortex); displaced (entirety of button >2 mm from cortex); intraosseous (all or part of button remains within bone); or ungradable...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Prompt treatment of acute intracranial hypertension is vital to preserving neurological function and frequently includes administration of 23.4% NaCl. However, 23.4% NaCl administration requires central venous catheterization that can delay treatment. Intraosseous catheterization is an alternative route of venous access that may result in more rapid administration of 23.4% NaCl. METHODS: Single-center retrospective analysis of 76 consecutive patients, between January 2015 and January 2018, with clinical signs of intracranial hypertension received 23...

Background: Verrucous carcinoma (VC) accounts for 1-10% of cases of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in the oral cavity, and 75% of VC occur in the oral cavity. Only 3% of primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinomas (PIOSCC), which means SCC occurring primarily in the bone, are VC. Verrucous carcinoma arising from odontogenic cysts (OC) is very rare, with only seven cases reported to date. Case presentation: This study reported a case of a patient who underwent partial maxillectomy and neck dissection for VC that occurred in the right anterior maxilla...

Schwannomas (also called neurilemmomas) are slow-growing nerve sheath tumors derived from Schwann cells. However, intraosseous schwannoma is a rare entity with an incidence of only 0.2% in overall primary bone tumors. The purpose of this case report is to present a case of an intraosseous schwannoma of the calcaneus. A 35-year-old woman was admitted to our outpatients' clinics with a complaint of long-time right heel pain (for approximately eight months). After a suspicious cystic lesion was observed on the patient's plain radiograph examination, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed...
