1/12. A case of an odontogenic cutaneous sinus tract.

    CASE REPORT: A 22-year-old female presented with a draining sinus tract on her left cheek. The tooth responsible was examined clinicopathologically. On clinical examination, the mandibular left first molar tooth was restored with an amalgam filling. Radiographic examination revealed base or pulp capping material below the restoration and a radiolucent periapical lesion surrounding the distal root apex. Conservative non-surgical root canal treatment was performed; 10 months later, the sinus had healed completely and the periapical lesion had resolved. Histopathological examination of pulp tissue recovered during treatment revealed foreign bodies, made up of capping material and amalgam, associated with chronic inflammation. These findings suggested that chronic inflammation in the pulp tissue had resulted in a draining sinus tract.

2/12. Median mental sinus in twins.

    Sinus on the chin can be the result of a chronic apical abscess due to pulp necrosis of a mandibular anterior tooth. The tooth is usually asymptomatic, and a dental cause is therefore not apparent to the patient or the unsuspecting clinician. Not infrequently, the patient may seek treatment from a dermatologist or general surgeon instead of a dentist. Excision and repair of the fistula may be carried out with subsequent breakdown because the dental pathology is not removed. This paper reports the presence of median mental sinus of dental origin in twins. One case healed following root canal therapy while the other required both root canal therapy and surgery to eliminate the infection.

3/12. A cautionary tale. Case report.

    A healthy 26 year old female underwent unsuccessful surgery for an incorrectly diagnosed sebaceous cyst in the cheek. Eventually the problem was traced to a non-vital tooth 24. When the tooth was treated endodontically, the situation resolved in one week.

4/12. Garre's osteomyelitis of an unusual origin in a 8-year-old child. A case report.

    Garre's osteomyelitis is a type of chronic osteomyelitis that primarily affects children and adolescents. Although the disease is well described in the dental literature and is usually associated with an odontogenic infection resulting from caries, a number of other causative factors have been occasionally reported, such as a dental extraction or a mild periodontitis. There have also been cases of unknown aetiology. This paper describes a case of Garre's osteomyelitis in an 8-year-old child, in whom the condition arose following a local periodontal infection in an ectopically erupting first permanent molar that was in infraocclusion. The lesion remained unresolved for a period of over 6 months as a result of misdiagnosis, following a number of unsuccessful treatment attempts. Identification of the true cause and treatment through periodontal surgery resulted in lesion resolution and resolved the diagnostic problem. dentists should be aware that the periodontium may be a potential source of infection for Garre's osteomyelitis in children, particularly in the presence of ectopically erupting posterior teeth. In such cases, periodontal treatment should be sufficient to treat the disease and extraction of the tooth involved may not be necessary.

5/12. Cutaneous sinus tract from remaining tooth fragment of edentulous maxilla.

    Cutaneous sinus tract of dental origin usually arises from chronic dental infections. These tracts usually appear as suppurative lesions of the chin or neck. Because many patients with this lesion do not have any complaints of oral symptoms, these lesions are often diagnosed incorrectly and overlooked, and are also treated ineffectively. A case of an unusual presentation of a chronic suppurative granuloma on nasolabial fold, which originated from the remaining tooth fragment of edentulous maxilla, is reported. Treatment with removal of the tooth fragment as well as the sinus tract resulted in complete healing of the lesion. This report emphasizes the importance of awareness of the possible dental origin of facial sinuses, despite their unusual location.

6/12. Unusual presentation of mandibular extraoral sinus in a fourteen year old girl: a case report.

    A case of fourteen year old healthy girl with complaint of a discharging sinus on the lower right side of face is reported. All teeth were vital and there was no evidence of periodontitis. There was no history of extraction of a tooth. Total leucocyte count, differential leucocyte count, fasting blood sugar, chest x-ray and routine urine examination were within normal limits. actinomycosis and scrofuloderma which simulate such a condition were ruled out by culture study. The intraoral periapical x-ray of mandibular molar showed questionable periapical changes at the time of presentation. But definite osteolysis was observed in the repeat radiograph after three months. It was decided to extract the second molar and curette the sinus tract. The extraction proved to be difficult. On examination of the extracted tooth, it was found that the mandibular second molar and second premolar were fused together. The radiograph of the tooth taken after extraction showed confluence of the premolar pulp with the periodontal membrane. On follow up, the lesion was found to heal satisfactorily.

7/12. Facial sinus of dental origin: a case report.

    Sinus tracts of dental origin opening on the skin can be a diagnostic challenge. A delay in correctly diagnosing these lesions can result in ineffective and inappropriate treatment; however, if recognized early, the sinus tract usually resolves after appropriate endodontic therapy or extraction. We report a case of a cutaneous sinus tract secondary to a periapical abscess of the mandibular first molar tooth. The case was successfully treated by extraction and the sinus tract healed.

8/12. Odontogenic sinus tract to the neck skin: a case report.

    We describe a 22-year-old woman with neck skin sinus tract that developed as a consequence of dental infection. The patient was treated twice in an inappropriate way with recurrence of the sinus tract. We opted for an extraction of the tooth. This case illustrates the need for cooperative diagnostic referrals between physicians and dentists.

9/12. Displacement of avulsed tooth into soft tissue of chin resulting from epileptic attack trauma.

    Maxillofacial trauma is the main cause of emergency admittance to dental clinics. Mental retardation and epileptic status are important factors in an increase in the risk of dental injuries. tooth avulsion, which is the total displacement of a tooth out of its socket, is an infrequently observed entity. Maxillary central incisors are the most commonly affected teeth. The case of a patient with severe dental injury resulting from an epileptic attack is presented. He had several teeth avulsed and displacement of a tooth into the soft tissue of the chin.

10/12. Loss of permanent mandibular lateral incisor and canine tooth buds through extraoral sinus: report of a case.

    Extraoral sinus tract may occur as a result of an inflammatory process associated with the necrotic pulp. Several non odontogenic disorders may also produce an extraoral sinus tract, the differential diagnosis of these clinical findings is of prime importance in providing appropriate clinical care. Presented here is a case report of 4 year old female child with extraoral sinus tract through which the tooth buds of mandibular permanent left lateral incisor and mandibular permanent left canine were lost. The extraoral sinus was due to mandibular left primary canine with class IX fracture (Ellis and Davey's classification).
