- Metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma mistaken for cribriform adenocarcinoma of the tongue and minor salivary glands: a case reportby Richard D. Jordan, Fatima Zahra Aly on 18/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and cribriform adenocarcinoma of the tongue and minor salivary glands (CATMSG) are head and neck tumors that share many histologic features and can be difficult to differentiate based on morphology alone. We report a case of a tongue base mass initially diagnosed as CATMSG, which after further ancillary studies was found to be metastatic PTC. Due to the significant differences in patient management, we review the literature and recommend routine immunohistochemical testing with thyroid transcription factor-1 and thyroglobulin.
- MULTIPLE ORAL SUBMUCOSAL NODULES IN A YOUNG ADULTby Matheus de Castro Costa, Emília Maria Gomes Aguiar, Maria Inês Mantuani Pascoaloti, Carla Cristina dos Santos Campos, Felipe Fornias Sperandio, Marina Gallottini, Renato Ortolani Marcondes de Castro, Marina Lara de Carli on 17/03/2023 at 12:00 am
A 26-year-old white female was referred to the Oral Medicine Clinic of the University for evaluation of symptomatic oral submucosal nodules. Past medical history taken from the patient's mother revealed an uneventful pregnancy and delivery, and normal crying at birth. However, hoarseness was noted when the patient started saying her first words. At the age of 13 the patient started to experience severe headaches that were centered in the orbital region and were diagnosed as migraines. The headaches did not improve with the proposed treatment at the time (Topiramate 50 mg), so the medication was discontinued at age 16.
- Association between epithelial-mesenchymal transition markers, proliferative index, and oral epithelial dysplasia: an immunohistochemical studyby Andressa Fernanda Paza Miguel, André Goulart Poletto, Bubacar Embaló, Elena Riet Correa Rivero on 16/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Objective: To correlate the immunoexpression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition markers, vimentin and E-cadherin (E-CAD), and putative markers, podoplanin (PDPN) and osteopontin (OTPN), with the expression of interleukin (IL-6), P53, and Ki-67, and with clinical and histological parameters of oral epithelial dysplasia (ED). Study design: Immunohistochemical reactions were performed in 61 cases of leukoplakia with ED, graded as low-risk (LRED=38) and high-risk (HRED=23) for malignant transformation.
- Whole genome DNA methylation and mutational profiles identify novel changes in Proliferative Verrucous Leukoplakiaby E.M. Okoturo, D. Green, K. Clarke, T. Liloglou, M.T. Boyd, R.J. Shaw, J.M. Risk on 16/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) is a rare form of oral leukoplakia with a relatively high transformation rate to oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Molecular analysis of this disorder at the genome level is limited and only identifies molecular similarities between PVL and OSCC. However, the clinical profile suggests that molecular differences may be more important.

- Oral Hygiene and Infective Endocarditis: A Case Control Studyby Peter B. Lockhart, Vivian Chu, Jing Zhao, Frank Gohs, Martin H. Thornhill, Bruce Pihlstrom, Farah Bahrani Mougeot, Geoffrey A. Rose, Yee-Ping Sun, Joel Napenas, Stephanie Munz, Peter M. Farrehi, Thomas Sollecito, Vidya Sankar, Patrick T. O'Gara on 09/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Infective endocarditis (IE), typically encountered as a heart valve infection, is uncommon in the general population but associated with high morbidity and mortality.1-3 It was first suggested over 100 years ago that bacteremia from the oral cavity could cause IE.4 This concept was later reinforced by reports that viridans group streptococci (VGS) related to oral hygiene and dental extractions caused IE.5,6 In 1955, the first American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines on prevention of IE recommended that patients at increased risk for IE should receive antibiotic prophylaxis (AP) before a variety of invasive procedures.
- Coexistence of Oral Lichen Planus and Vulvar Lichen Sclerosusby Marketa Janovska, Katherine J. Bodiford, Alison J. Bruce, Roy S. Rogers on 08/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Lichen planus (LP) is a common chronic inflammatory disorder that may affect multiple cutaneous and mucosal surfaces, including the skin, oral mucosa, nails, genitalia, and scalp.1-4 Other possible sites of involvement are the eye, esophagus, bladder, nose, larynx, ear, stomach, and anus.2, 5, 6 Oral LP (OLP) is a T-cell–mediated disease that requires long-term treatment and surveillance.1 The prevalence of OLP is about 1.01%.7 Six clinical forms have been defined; however, these can be simplified to reticular (which includes papular and plaque forms), erosive-bullous, and atrophic forms, which may coexist (Figure 1).
- Pan-American prevalence of smokeless tobacco use and association with oral potentially malignant disorders and head and neck cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysisby Caique Mariano Pedroso, Ana Gabriela Costa Normando, Cristina Saldivia Siracusa, Béatrice Lauby-Secretan, Suzanne T Nethan, Ramiro Alejandro Tomasi, Marcio Ajudarte Lopes, Saman Warnakulasuriya, Alan Roger Santos-Silva on 08/03/2023 at 12:00 am

- World Workshop on Oral Medicine VIII: Development of a Core Outcome Set for Dry Mouth: A Systematic Review of Outcome Domains for Xerostomia.by Paswach Wiriyakijja, Sven Niklander, Alan Roger Santos-Silva, Michal Kuten Shorrer, Melanie Louise Simms, Alessandro Villa, Vidya Sankar, Alexander Ross Kerr, Richeal Ni Riordain, Siri Beier Jensen, Konstantina Delli on 06/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Dry mouth is a common condition that can significantly impair oral health, daily oral functioning, quality of life, as well as increase the economic burden associated with health care services 1, 2. Previous clinical studies reported that the proportion of individuals with dry mouth in the population ranged from 5.5% to 46% 3. As the population ages, the prevalence of dry mouth is likely to increase, yet the condition appears to remain underrecognized and undertreated 1, 4.
- Clinicians’ perceptions of oral leukoplakia: a pitfall for image annotation in Supervised Learningby Anna Luíza Damaceno Araújo, Eduardo Santos Carlos de Souza, Isabel Schausltz Pereira Faustino, Cristina Saldivia-Siracusa, Tamires Brito-Sarracino, Márcio Ajudarte Lopes, Pablo Agustin Vargas, Alexander T.

- Clinical teaching and feedback: how do we do it and how can we improve our approachesby Antonia Kolokythas on 02/03/2023 at 12:00 am
In health care, most of our teaching takes place at the bedside during outpatient clinic hours, in the operating and in the wards, regardless of the specialty. This bedside teaching is a daily practice and is augmented by formal lectures and conferences in the classroom type of setting. Both are essential and should complement each other. Teaching and patient care should be balanced and time restrains seem to be identified as the main obstacle in clinical teaching, in addition of course to attitudes and perceptions by both the learner and the teacher.
- World Workshop on Oral Medicine VIII: Development of a Core Outcome Set for Dry Mouth: A Systematic Review of Outcome Domains for Salivary Hypofunctionby Melanie Louise Simms, Michal Kuten-Shorrer, Paswach Wiriyakijja, Sven Eric Niklander, Alan Roger Santos-Silva, Vidya Sankar, Alexander Ross Kerr, Siri Beier Jensen, Richeal Ni Riordain, Konstantina Delli, Alessandro Villa on 02/03/2023 at 12:00 am
Dry mouth is a debilitating condition which can have a significant impact on quality of life. It is a ubiquitous problem worldwide, yet despite this, management options remain limited, and there is no strong evidence that treatments are effective.1 Prevalence ranges from 5.5%- 46%2 with a slight female preponderance3,4 However, the precise global prevalence is difficult to determine due to differing study methodology and diagnostic or inclusion criteria used.5-7
- World Workshop on Oral Medicine VIII: Development of a Core Outcome Set for Oral Lichen Planus: A Systematic Review of Outcome Domainsby Rosa María López-Pintor, Márcio Diniz-Freitas, Shilpa Shree Kuduva Ramesh, J Amadeo Valdéz, HongxiaDan, Caroline Bissonnette, Catherine Hong, Arwa Farag, Martin S Greenberg, Michael T Brennan, Nancy W Burkhart, Jane F Setterfield, Sook-Bin Woo, Thomas P Sollecito, Richeal Ni Riordain, Jennifer Taylor, Jairo Robledo-Sierra on 02/03/2023 at 12:00 am
There is a lack of consensus regarding clinician- and patient-reported outcomes for oral lichen planus (OLP). The World Workshop on Oral Medicine Outcomes Initiative for the Direction of Research (WONDER Project) aims to develop a core outcome set (COS) for OLP, which would inform the design of clinical trials, and importantly, facilitate meta-analysis, leading to the establishment of more robust evidence for the management of this condition and hence improved patient care.

- The WONDER Projectby Richeal Ni Riordain, Arwa M. Farag, Alessandro Villa, Jairo Robledo-Sierra, Konstantina Delli, Jennifer Taylor on 02/03/2023 at 12:00 am
The spectrum of conditions managed by Oral Medicine specialists is wide and includes, amongst others, ulcerative and vesiculobullous diseases of the oral cavity, orofacial neuropathies, salivary gland disorders, oral complications from cancer therapy, and oral potentially malignant disorders, which may cause severe morbidity and mortality1. Due to the chronicity of many of these conditions, the primary management strategy of most treatments are typically symptomatic in nature and not curative. The risk-benefit balance for all treatments should be considered before commencement, and ideally be accompanied by high-quality evidence base to support the decisions made by clinicians.

Dry mouth is one of the most common oral conditions reported worldwide. Dry mouth sensation or ‘xerostomia’ corresponds to the subjective feeling of dry mouth, which may or may not be accompanied by an actual reduction in salivary flow rate. Salivary gland hypofunction and hyposalivation, are the recommended terms to refer to an objective decrease in the salivary output.1 Salivary gland hypofunction designates a saliva flow rate below normal secretion, whilst hyposalivation refers to a diagnosis when saliva secretion becomes pathological low2 as measured objectively below a cutoff value, i.e.

- Temporomandibular disorders—review of evidence-based management and a proposed multidisciplinary care pathwayby Krupali Patel, Karen A. Eley, Luke Cascarini, Steve Watt-Smith, Maeve Larkin, Tim Lloyd, Clare Maddocks, Elenor McLaren, Rachel Stovell, Roddy McMillan on 12/02/2023 at 12:00 am
Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are a prevalent but complex group of conditions that cause orofacial pain. Temporomandibular disorders are recognized as one of the most common chronic pain conditions, alongside back pain and headache disorders.Given the competing theories surrounding what causes TMDs and limited high-equality evidence on optimally treating TMDs, clinicians often encounter challenges in developing an effective management plan for patients.Furthermore, patients will often seek advice from multiple health care providers from varying specialties, seeking curative management, often resulting in inappropriate treatments and no improvement in pain symptoms.
