Unusual exophytic gingival lesion in a newborn treated with diode laser
by Thalita Soares Tavares, Adriana Aparecida Silva da Costa, Fernanda Bartolomeo Freire-Maia, Leandro Napier Souza, Patrícia Maria Zarzar, Paulo Antônio Martins-Júnior, Maria Cássia Ferreira Aguiar, Ricardo Alves Mesquita, Patrícia Carlos Caldeira on 24/02/2020 at 12:00 am
Gingival lesions rarely occur in newborns. However, when present, they commonly worry the parents and impair the infant's feeding, thus affecting growth. Such lesions are usually nonneoplastic in nature, although malignancies may develop; therefore, specimens must be submitted for histopathologic examination. A 2-month-old girl presented with a 10-mm nodule on the anterior lower alveolar ridge in association with natal tooth extraction and neonatal tooth eruption. The lesion was excised with high-power laser under local anesthesia, and a histopathologic diagnosis of a peripheral ossifying fibroma was made.

A new look at quality assurance in oral and maxillofacial radiology
by James R. Geist on 07/02/2020 at 12:00 am
This month's issue of the journal includes an article by Reeves et al. addressing the concept of quality assurance (QA) in digital intraoral radiology.1 The authors describe QA as a program of “strategic and systematic steps necessary to ensure … the consistent production of high quality radiographic images with maximal diagnostic information at the lowest radiation exposure to the patient.” The article specifically examines the importance of acceptance testing of solid-state digital dental intraoral sensors at the time of installation of the x-ray source, the sensors, the computer, the software, and the monitor on which the radiographs are displayed.

Oral manifestations and clinical progression of a rare double-hit B-cell lymphoma: a case report and review of the literature
by Wenli Yu, Chan Park, Benjamin Shimel on 05/02/2020 at 12:00 am
Double-hit (DH) lymphoma is a rare subtype of B-cell lymphoma characterized by the chromosomal rearrangement of c-Myc and Bcl-2, and/or Bcl-6. c-Myc is an oncogene that keeps cells proliferative. Bcl-2 and Bcl-6 grant cells antiapoptotic features. The concurrent expression of these genes and their synergistic effect make DH lymphoma refractory to traditional chemotherapy, with an extremely poor prognosis. Here, we present a case of DH lymphoma in the oral cavity, including its rapid clinical course, extensive involvement of multiple sites and organs, and response to aggressive chemotherapy.

A review of the molecular profile of benign and malignant odontogenic lesions
by Filipe Fideles Duarte-Andrade, Jéssica Gardone Vitório, Thaís dos Santos Fontes Pereira, Carolina Cavaliéri Gomes, Ricardo Santiago Gomez on 05/02/2020 at 12:00 am
Odontogenic cysts and tumors are heterogeneous lesions, originating from elements or remnants of the odontogenic apparatus. Although the majority of these lesions are benign and never undergo malignant transformation, rare malignant tumors may arise de novo or from benign precursors. The molecular basis of these lesions is still poorly understood. This article summarizes and discusses studies using small, medium, and large-scale and/or “-omic” techniques to describe the molecular characteristics of benign and malignant odontogenic lesions and briefly debates strategies to increase the use of “-omic” and multi-omic approaches or integrative analyses in the research of these lesions.

Recurrent oral erythema multiforme: a case series report and review of the literature
by Yuqi Du, Fei Wang, Tiannan Liu, Xin Jin, Hang Zhao, Qianming Chen, Xin Zeng on 28/11/2019 at 12:00 am
Recurrent oral erythema multiforme (ROEM) is now accepted as a less-recognized subtype of erythema multiforme (EM). The diagnosis is based on the exclusion of other similar diseases; typical clinical features, such as mutiple recurrent irregular painful erosions of oral mucosa without skin lesions, and, frequently, evidence of past herpes simplex virus infection. Here, we report 3 cases diagnosed as ROEM according to the 3 characteristics mentioned before. In addition, the article reviews the epidemiology, etiology, clinical manifestations, basis for diagnosis, and treatment of ROEM and highlights the need for prophylaxis.

Accounting for diversity in rare disease research and precision medicine
by Faizan Alawi on 28/11/2019 at 12:00 am
We live in an age where the concept of precision medicine is no longer aspirational but is now institutionalized, not only being used in clinical practice but also helping to drive novel research. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines precision medicine as “an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle of each person.”1

“Changes of the condylar position after modified disk repositioning: a retrospective study based on magnetic resonance imaging”
by Ayman F. Hegab on 27/11/2019 at 12:00 am
We read with respect the recent article by Chen et al., titled “Changes of the condylar position after modified disk repositioning: a retrospective study based on magnetic resonance imaging” published in Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Oral Radiology. The authors attempted to evaluate the changes in condylar position after unilateral open disk repositioning surgery. The authors drew the conclusion that the joint spaces significantly increased postoperatively, in addition to the changes of the condylar position in anterior and inferior movements and led to the posterior open bite, most of which will be recovered 3 months after surgery.

American Academy of Oral Medicine: 75 years of bringing medicine and dentistry back together
by Martin T. Tyler, Craig S. Miller, Peter B. Lockhart, Lauren L. Patton on 06/11/2019 at 12:00 am
The historical separation of medicine and dentistry in the United States is derived from the original unregulated dentist–barber surgeon trade and its interaction with the burgeoning profession of medicine.1 With the passing of time, the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, chartered in 1840 under the vision of Horace H. Hayden and Chapin A. Harris, offered the first formal dental education curriculum and introduced dentistry as a separate profession in the United States.1

Replacing one evil with another: Is the fibula really a dispensable spare part available for transfer in patients with medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws?
by Jan-Dirk Raguse, Andrej Trampuz, Marcelo Sanchez Boehm, Susanne Nahles, Benedicta Beck-Broichsitter, Max Heiland, Norbert Neckel on 26/10/2019 at 12:00 am
Because of the long-term and consecutive use of different causative agents, clinicians are increasingly encountering patients needing restoration of the stomatognathic system after surgical resection of highly advanced necroses of the jaw. For plastic restoration in these cases, microvascular reconstruction seems to represent the most viable option. According to the limited data available, the risks of this operation are considered comparable with those faced by other patient cohorts. We report here the case of a patient who suffered 2 successive pathologic fractures of the tibia after microsurgical reconstruction of the mandible with a free fibula flap.

We present a case of vascularized ameloblastoma that had a bloody return on fine-needle aspiration. The English language literature contains a total of 16 reports (18 cases) of vascular or hemangioma-like ameloblastoma. We reviewed the clinical, pathologic, and radiographic features of the 19 cases, but further study and more cases are needed.
