Orthokeratinized odontogenic cyst (OOC) is a relatively rare odontogenic cyst, distinct from odontogenic keratocyst (OKC). In the 4th edition of WHO Classification of Head and Neck Tumors (2017), OOC has been included as a separate entity in the category of developmental odontogenic cysts. It presents as a unilocular radiolucent lesion in the posterior mandible and is frequently related to impacted teeth, thus mimicking dentigerous cyst. Due to low local aggressiveness and no association with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, it does not show tendency to recur...

OBJECTIVES: The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is an aggressive odontogenic cyst that has a high recurrence rate. Apart from PTCH1 mutations, few molecular alterations are described in OKCs. Low expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) miR-15a and/or miR-16-1 in association with increased expression of their target, Bcl-2, have been previously found in OKC. In humans, MIR15A and MIR16-1 are clustered at chromosome position 13 q14, and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at this locus occurs in different tumors...

Introduction: Odontogenic tumors (OTs) are a group of heterogeneous lesions derived from epithelial or ectomesenchymal tissues or both, which are part of the tooth-forming apparatus. They range from hamartomatous or nonneoplastic tissue proliferations to malignant neoplasms with metastatic capacity. OTs are comparatively rare, comprising about 4.79% of all oral and maxillofacial biopsy specimens diagnosed. Several retrospective studies carried out in Africa, Asia, Europe and America, show that differences exist in the relative frequency of the various histologic types...

Introduction: The three common odontogenic cysts include radicular cysts (RCs), dentigerous cysts (DCs), and odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs). Among these 3 cysts, OKC is recently been classified as benign keratocystic odontogenic tumor attributing to its aggressive behavior, recurrence rate, and malignant potential. The present study involved qualitative and quantitative analysis of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression in epithelial lining of RCs, DCs, and OKCs, compare iNOS expression in epithelial linings of all the 3 cysts and determined overexpression of iNOS in OKCs which might contribute to its aggressive behavior and malignant potential...

Gorlin syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in the sonic hedgehog signaling pathway. Of particular importance is the PTCH1 gene. The disease is characterized by the development of multiple basal cell carcinomas at young ages. These tumors may present with other skin manifestations such as palmoplantar pits and with extracutaneous manifestations such as odontogenic keratocysts and medulloblastoma. Although the dermatologist may be key for recognizing clinical suspicion of the syndrome, a multidisciplinary team is usually necessary for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up...

Ovarian fibromas are the most common benign solid ovarian tumors, which are often difficult to diagnose preoperatively. Ovarian fibromas, especially in bilateral cases, may be cases of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS), a rare autosomal dominant disorder with predisposition to basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and other various benign and malignant tumors. This case report describes a 25 year-old female with GGS, bilateral ovarian fibroma, endometriosis and septated uterus, which was referred to the Gynecology Clinic of Rasoul-e-Akram Hospital in October 2016...

Bone resorption in the jaws is one of the most severe complications of keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs), and can be treated by either enucleation or marsupialization. However, the effects of marsupialization on bone regeneration adjacent to KCOTs, and the mechanisms involved, are still unclear. In this study, samples of 27 KCOTs were collected (20 before marsupialization and 7 after marsupialization) to detect the expression of bone regeneration-related molecules adjacent to KCOTs by immunohistochemistry and real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR)...

The keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) is capable of causing vast osseous destruction. Histopathological examination is pivotal for diagnosis. The diagnostic process can sometimes be hindered by tissue inflammation of KCOTs with loss of defining criteria, resulting in misdiagnosis as an odontogenic jaw cyst. We discuss the possible merits of volumetric analysis when facing this particular diagnostic dilemma and for pathophysiological characterization of KCOTs. We included 114 patients, of whom 27 were histopathologically diagnosed with a KCOT and 87 with dentigerous (n = 41) and periapical cyst (n = 46)...

BACKGROUND: The term "primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma" was introduced in 2005 by the World Health Organization with three subcategories. Squamous cell carcinoma arising from the lining of an odontogenic cyst is one important rare subcategory of such lesions with an incidence of 0.01 to 0.02%. Furthermore, the appearance of such malignancy in an odontogenic tumor such as keratocystic odontogenic tumor is considered extremely rare. CASE PRESENTATION: In this case report we report a case of a 50-year-old Sri Lankan woman who complained of pain and increase in the size of a swelling at the anterior mandible, which had been present for over 1 year...

Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome (BCCNS), also known as Gorlin syndrome, is a rare autosomal dominant condition with a substantial disease burden, thought to occur secondary to chromosome 9 mutation evoking a Hedgehog (Hh) signaling aberration that leads to early development of numerous basal cell carcinomas (BCCs). Individuals with BCCNS also present with keratocystic odontogenic tumors, medulloblastomas, and palmar or plantar pits1. This condition demonstrates variable expressivity, leading to differing phenotypes, even within the same family2...
