Autoimmune neutropenia is a self-limiting condition characterized by the presence of granulocyte-specific autoantibodies. This case report describes a 2-year-old female who presented to the Department of Pediatric Dentistry with a history of oral ulceration, complicated by high temperature, gingival hypertrophy and gingival hemorrhage. These symptoms had precipitated an admission to a district general hospital and diagnosis of viral tonsillitis. The severity of the presentation to the Pediatric Dental Department prompted a review of recent discharge blood investigations, which revealed a neutrophil count of 0...

Background : Glycogen storage diseases (GSDs) are genetic disorders that result from defects in the processing of glycogen synthesis or breakdown within muscles, liver, and other cell types. It also manifests with impaired neutrophil chemotaxis and neutropenic episodes which results in severe destruction of the supporting dental tissues, namely the periodontium. Although GSD Type Ib cannot be cured, associated symptoms and debilitating oral manifestations of the disease can be managed through collaborative medical and dental care where early detection and intervention is of key importance...

Dental enamel is formed by rod-like structures, the enamel prisms. Groups of prisms are packed together in successive horizontal layers of alternating directions, known as Hunter-Schreger bands (HSBs). HSBs are the major microstructural characteristic of mammalian enamel. The pattern of HSBs can vary among mammalian species and this variability may provide relevant information regarding the species life history and taxon identification. In human HSBs can be used as a biometric-based parameter for personal identification in automated systems...

Coffin-Siris syndrome (CSS; MIM 135900) is a multisystem congenital anomaly syndrome caused by mutations in the genes in the Brg-1 associated factors (BAF) complex. Classically, individuals with CSS have been described with hypo- or aplasia of the fifth digit nails or phalanges (hence the term "fifth digit syndrome"). Other physical features seen include growth restriction, coarse facial features, hypertrichosis or hirsutism, sparse scalp hair, dental anomalies, and other organ-system abnormalities...
