- Why Doesn't Medicare Treat All Diagnostic Tests Equally?by Mark W. Lingen, John R. Kalmar on 26/10/2021 at 12:00 am
When a patient presents with an oral lesion or signs and/or symptoms of disease, a biopsy is frequently required to determine the underlying cause. Tissue biopsies are a critical link in the chain of patient care since a single, definitive diagnosis for a lesion is rarely provided on the basis of its clinical or radiographic features alone. Such diagnostic uncertainly can delay proper treatment or lead to interventions that inadvertently make the condition worse. After the biopsy sample is received by a surgical pathology laboratory, it receives a gross (macroscopic) evaluation followed by processing and routine histologic (microscopic) examination of stained tissue sections.

- GLI1-altered epithelioid soft tissue tumor: a newly described entity with a predilection for the tongueby Haoyan Zhong, Chen Xu, Xinming Chen, Xiaolong Guo, Shaodong Yang on 20/10/2021 at 12:00 am
A novel subset of epithelioid soft tissue tumors with GLI1 gene fusions or amplifications has recently been characterized. Histologically, these tumors typically exhibit multinodular or plexiform growth of ovoid, round to epithelioid neoplastic cells, with a distinctive nested architecture separated by a rich delicate arborizing vascular network. The immunoprofile is variable and non-specific, indicating no definitive line of differentiation. GLI1-altered epithelioid soft tissue tumor is considered to be a low grade sarcoma, however, with limited number of cases reported the biologic behaviour of this entity is unclear.
- Automatic discrimination of Yamamoto-Kohama classification by machine learning approach for invasive pattern of oral squamous cell carcinoma using digital microscopic images: A retrospective studyby Kunio Yoshizawa, Hidetoshi Ando, Yujiro Kimura, Shuichi Kawashiri, Hiroshi Yokomichi, Akinori Moroi, Koichiro Ueki on 14/10/2021 at 12:00 am
The Yamamoto–Kohama criteria are clinically useful for determining the mode of tumor invasion, especially in Japan. However, this evaluation method is based on subjective visual findings and has led to significant differences in determinations between evaluators and facilities. In this retrospective study, we aimed to develop an automatic method of determining the mode of invasion based on the processing of digital medical images.
- Unicystic Adenoid Ameloblastoma: A New Variant?by Roberta Rayra Martins-Chaves, Bruna Pizziolo Coura, Carolina Cavaliéri Gomes, Felipe Paiva Fonseca, Wagner Henriques de Castro, Ricardo Santiago Gomez on 14/10/2021 at 12:00 am
Adenoid ameloblastoma with dentinoid is an uncommon benign odontogenic neoplasm, and its unicystic variant seems to be even rarer. A 34-year-old man was referred for evaluation of an asymptomatic swelling in the posterior maxilla. Intraoral examination showed an expansive lesion, soft to palpation, covered by a normal color mucosa. Cone-beam tomography revealed a well-defined unilocular hypodense tumor involving the left maxillary sinus. Histopathological examination of the surgically excised specimen showed a cystic tumor lined by an ameloblastic-like epithelium containing columnar basal cells with hyperchromatic and polarized nuclei.

Lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs) are a group of conditions characterized by excessive production of lymphocytes manifested in various patterns including lymphadenopathy, tumor-like lesions, and lymphomas. LPD may be stimulated by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection that most commonly appears in the setting of immunocompromised status such as long-term use of immunosuppressive medications and in individuals with primary immunodeficiency disorders. EBV mucocutaneous ulcer is a benign LPD reaction that mostly regresses spontaneously but sometimes requires medical or surgical intervention.
- Osteosarcoma of the Jaws: Report of 3 Cases with Emphasis on the Early Clinical and Radiographic Signsby Scarlet Charmelo-Silva, Allison Buchanan, Sajitha Kalathingal, Rafik Abdelsayed on 11/09/2021 at 12:00 am
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary malignancy of the jaws and is treated by radical surgical resection. Early detection is crucial since removing the lesion with clean margins contributes most to outcome. We present three cases of osteosarcoma occurring in the interradicular region of the mandible, two of which were thought to represent non-malignant processes upon initial presentation. All three demonstrated early but significant clinical and radiographic features indicative of the malignant disease process.

- Anticholinergic medication–related dry mouth and effects on the salivary glandsby Szilvia Arany, Dorota T. Kopycka-Kedzierawski, Thomas V. Caprio, Gene E. Watson on 29/08/2021 at 12:00 am
Salivary glands are among the most sensitive target organs of medications with anticholinergic (AC) properties, interrupting the neural stimulation of saliva secretion and reducing saliva flow. Hyposalivation results in dry mouth, leading to dental caries, intraoral infection, orofacial pain, problems with speaking and swallowing, and diminished oral health--related quality of life. Current understanding of the pharmacokinetics of AC medications and their effect on muscarinic receptors in the salivary glands were reviewed to assist clinicians in predicting salivary damage in patients with AC medication–induced dry mouth.
