Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ) is an adverse side effect of several drug therapies, including bisphosphonates (BPs). Osteonecrosis of the jaw specifically related to BP therapy is usually referred to using the acronym BRONJ. However, no consensus has yet been reached regarding the most appropriate management of BRONJ. The greatest success rates have been recorded with surgical removal of necrotic bone. In particular, erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) laser-assisted surgery has shown significantly better results than conventional surgical approaches...

Cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia (CLH) is a cutaneous pseudolymphoma with a worldwide distribution, equally affecting all races and ethnic groups. Due to its vast array of characteristics, it is most often missed in the differential diagnosis of firm to soft lumps on the head and neck. A systematic approach to the workup and diagnosis along with treatment of such lesions is discussed in this article. A 20-year-old Asian Indian female presented to our Oral and Maxillofacial unit with a lump on the left side of her forehead for 1 month...

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease, little known to the medical and dental community, but with a growing rate of hospitalization over the years. HAE is due to a deficit/dysfunction of C1 esterase inhibitor which leads to an increase in vascular permeability and the appearance of edemas widespread in all body areas. The airways are the most affected and laryngeal swelling, which can occur, it is dangerous for the patient's life, is also a sensitive spot in our daily practice, therefore, it is also important to be aware of all the signs of this disease...

PURPOSE: To identify the risk factors associated with relapse or treatment failure after surgery for bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) in patients with osteoporosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of BRONJ in patients with osteoporosis who had undergone surgical procedures from 2004 to 2016 at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Seoul National University Dental Hospital. The predictor variables were a set of heterogeneous variables, including demographic (age, gender), anatomic (maxilla or mandible, or both, affected location), clinical (disease stage, etiology, comorbidities, history of intravenous bisphosphonate intake), time (conservative treatment before surgery, bisphosphonate treatment before the development of BRONJ, discontinuation of the drug before surgery, interval to final follow-up, interval to reoperation in the case of relapse or treatment failure), and perioperative variables (type of anesthesia, type of surgical procedures)...

Oncologic and traumatic defects of the maxilla can pose a challenge to patients, reconstructive surgeons, and maxillofacial prosthodontists in an attempt to provide satisfactory treatment. Oral-nasal and oral-antral fistulas are frequently treated with soft tissue flaps, osteocutaneous flaps, or a maxillofacial obturator. Often, surgical reconstruction is preferred for patient quality of life and definitive restoration. Surgical reconstruction also avoids the difficulties encountered with fabricating an obturator in an irradiated field with the often-resultant microstomia...

Background Ameloblastomas are a rare tumor entity accounting for only 10% of all odontogenic tumors. They mostly originate from the mandible. Only a few cases are known to grow aggressively and to invade the orbit, nasal cavity, or even the brain. Patient and Methods/Case Report We present the case of a 57-year-old patient who was admitted with a huge tumor involving the nasal cavity, the left maxilla, and the anterior fossa. Histologic diagnosis was made by biopsy. A combined two-stage neurosurgical maxillofacial approach was planned...

Antiresorptive agent-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (ARONJ) is an intractable, though rare, complication in cancer patients with bone metastases and patients with osteoporosis who are treated with antiresorptive agents, including bisphosphonates and denosumab. Despite the more than 10 years that have passed since the first cases of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) were reported, our understanding of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of ARONJ remains limited, and data supported by evidence-based medicine are still sparse...
