2/43. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumour: a case study with radiographic differential diagnostic considerations.

    Adenomatoid odontogenic tumours (AOT) are benign, hamartomatous odontogenic lesions that not uncommonly mimic a dentigerous cyst radiographically. Such a case as found involving an unerupted left maxillary canine in a 19-year-old Chinese female is described. The differential diagnosis of some common odontogenic cysts and neoplasms occurring in Malaysians, that may present in a dentigerous relationship to an unerupted tooth is discussed. A brief review of the radiographic literature on AOT is also included.

3/43. Odontogenic carcinoma occurring in a dentigerous cyst: case report and clinical management.

    This case report describes an unusual odontogenic carcinoma, which was detected during routine periodontal examination. The lesion occurred in a dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted third molar in an otherwise asymptomatic 66-year-old male patient. The impacted tooth and lesion were excised based on evidence of radiographic change and clinical findings. An unusual histopathologic presentation is reported. The treatment provided for this tumor and the management of impacted teeth is reviewed.

4/43. Follicular or dentigerous (tooth-containing) cyst in the premaxilla of an otherwise edentulous 65-year-old man.

    A unilocular follicular or dentigerous cyst (FDC) with a diameter of 12 mm was observed incidentally in the premaxilla of a midsagittal section of the head of a 65-year-old cadaver. The mucosal lining of the cyst was grey in color and granular in texture: the osseous walls had a thickness of less than 1 mm. In the floor of the cyst, a slender, fully developed incisor tooth was fixed in a horizontal position. The alveolar processes of the maxilla and mandible were completely edentulous. Postmortem computer tomography showed the cyst in an osteolytic lesion of the premaxilla, and histology revealed a lining of non-keratinized stratified squamous epithelium supported by a lamina propria of dense connective tissue. copyright Wiley-Liss, Inc.

5/43. Longitudinal in vivo observations on odontogenic keratocyst over a period of 4 years.

    A case is presented of simultaneous adjacent odontogenic keratocyst and dentigerous cyst occurring in the same quadrant. Their in vivo behaviour, influence and effect on each other, surrounding tissues and on tooth development over a period of 4 years are described. This unique case may further advance the understanding of the behaviour of the odontogenic keratocyst in vivo.

6/43. Two cases of totally submerging buried primary molars: characterization of clinical behavior and discussion of cause.

    Submerging buried tooth is a rare condition whose clinical characteristics are unclear. Two cases are reported of submerging buried maxillary second deciduous molar. A review of the literature in Japanese and English provides the clinical condition of the lesion and allows for discussion of its causes.

7/43. dentigerous cyst with an impacted canine in an unusual position-a case report.

    A dentigerous cyst is a type of an odontogenic cyst associated with the crown of an impacted, embedded or unerupted tooth. In this article, we report a case of dentigerous cyst with an impacted canine in an unusual position which was surgically removed.

8/43. Ameloblastic fibroma of the anterior maxilla presenting as a complication of tooth eruption: a case report.

    Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare mixed odontogenic tumour, which is extremely uncommon in the anterior maxillary region. A case report is presented where failure of eruption of an upper central incisor was the presenting feature.

9/43. Bilateral mandibular cysts associated with cyclosporine use: a case report.

    Cyclosporin A (CsA) is used in the treatment of patients undergoing renal transplantation. There are a number of side effects associated with its use. In particular, the gingival overgrowth represents the most important in the oral cavity. The authors present a case of bilateral mandibular cysts in an 8-year-old boy, treated with CsA after renal transplantation. The genesis of the mandibular cysts might be associated with the combined use of CsA and a calcium channel blocker post-transplantation. CsA-induced gingival overgrowth might contribute to cysts by two mechanisms: interference with control mechanisms that regulate the reabsorption of gingival stromal tissue, allowing progressive dental eruption, and an increase in the gingival connective tissue components. gingival hypertrophy might mechanically obstruct the eruption of the developing tooth.

10/43. An aggressive dentigerous cyst in a seven-year-old child.

    A review of literature indicates that very few of these cysts are found in children less than ten years of age, in spite of the fact that the cysts are associated with the eruption and/or formation of the secondary dentition. Although dentigerous cysts are rare in the first decade of life, a thorough review of a child's initial radiographs is of obvious importance as indicated by this case report. Of prime importance in this matter is the age at which the initial panoramic radiographic examination is performed on a child. According to the guidelines recommended by the American Academy of pediatric dentistry, the first panoramic radiographic examination should be performed following the eruption of the first permanent tooth. In this case, the appropriate radiographic survey was not conducted. A proper survey should include: Proper exposure of the film. Proper development of the film. Proper interpretation of the film. This child had a quadrant of dentistry performed three months prior to the discovery of the lesion. The previous dental provider noted that a panoramic radiograph had been exposed. It is unclear whether all of the aforementioned steps were followed or completed in order for the provider to obtain the information needed to render a diagnosis, and to properly refer this patient for a more in-depth examination of her mandibular swelling. The mere fact that this child's right mandibular first molar was fully erupted and the left one had not erupted at all, would be reason enough to take a panoramic radiograph to investigate the cause of the clinical absence of the contralateral first molar. This article has presented a case in which a proper panoramic radiographic examination performed at the time of eruption of the first permanent tooth may have led to an earlier diagnosis of the cyst, and thus might have prevented the loss of multiple permanent teeth.
