The only symptom related to COVID-19 was a persistent headache for 3 days, and no other medication was prescribed besides nonopioid analgesics.
- Xeroderma pigmentosum variant: squamous cell carcinoma of the lower lip harboring exon 11 mutation of POLHby Thaís dos Santos Fontes Pereira, Ligia Pereira Castro, Carlos Frederico Martins Menck, Maria Helena Thomaz Maia, Lucas Lacerda de Souza, Felipe Paiva Fonseca, Helder Antônio Rebelo Pontes, Flavia Sirotheau Correa Pontes, Ricardo Santiago Gomez on 28/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare inherited disease caused by deficiencies in DNA damage repair, which mainly results from the failure of nucleotide excision repair or defects in translesion DNA synthesis. The development of multiple malignancies is one of the most prominent features of this condition, which is clinically characterized by the occurrence of hyperpigmentation and lesions associated with sunlight exposure. Lip squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in patients with XP has rarely been reported, and information regarding the genetic analysis of these patients is limited.

- Odontogenic Keratocyst Located in the Retromolar Trigoneby A. Shathur, B. Patel, G. Pitiyage, S. Cameron, N. Hyde on 26/02/2021 at 12:00 am
Odontogenic keratocysts (OKC) are a commonly occurring, benign cystic intraossesous lesion, thought to arise from the cell rests of the dental lamina. Most instances of OKC are commonly found in the posterior aspect of the mandible.In rare instances there have been reported cases of OKCs arising in the peripheral gingiva, but these cases are few and far between.Rarer still are the few documented cases of OKCs arising in other soft tissues of the mouth. There are many divided opinions on the diagnosis of these lesions and whether they are truly odontogenic in origin given their location when they are enucleated from a soft tissue area.
