1/178. Gastric and gingival localization of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. An immunohistochemical, virological and clinical case report.

    Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) are characterized by their mucosal and glandular tissue localization. The case described here falls into the European-American classification of a low-grade B-cell lymphoma of the MALT type, with a gingival lesion 2 years after a gastric lesion. The pathogenetic mechanisms of NHL in oral MALT and the diagnosis and treatment are discussed.

2/178. Metastasis to maxillary gingiva from carcinoma of breast. A case report.

    A rare case of metastatic infiltrating duct carcinoma involving gingiva in relation to maxillary left canine-premolar of a 40 year old female is presented. The unilateral gingival enlargement in canine-premolar region was quite unusual. Pertinent history and histological examination revealed that the tumor was a metastatic carcinoma, the primary lesion of which was in the breast. The differential diagnosis of gingival enlargements is discussed in this paper. The resemblance of this mass to an inflammatory hyperplastic condition reflects the need for a detailed case history and examination.

3/178. Sturge Weber syndrome with intraoral manifestations. A case report.

    A 15 Year old female patient with Sturge Weber syndrome is presented. This neurocutaneous syndrome consists of angiomatosis of the skin and mucosa as well as the leptomeninges. This case report describes the classic presentation of the syndrome, emphasizing the oral manifestations. The radiographic and CT scan show the typical "tram line" intracranial calcifications. This case report presents a typical case of Sturge Weber syndrome. It gives the radiological and CT scan findings and the important role played by them in the diagnosis of this syndrome. Emphasis is given to the differentiation of diphenylhydantoin induced gingival hyperplasia from the angiomatous enlargement of the gingiva before any treatment is planned.

4/178. High-dose-rate mold brachytherapy of early gingival carcinoma: a clinical report.

    Two elderly edentulous patients with the diagnosis of early stage cancer of the upper gingiva were treated by customized dental mold brachytherapy. Locoregional tumor control was achieved in both patients. One patient is alive without any evidence of disease 36 months after treatment, the other patient died of distant metastasis shortly after brachytherapy. brachytherapy, being easy to apply with short treatment time and good acute tolerance, is a good choice and effective modality for the management of early stage gingival cancer, particularly in elderly patients.

5/178. Unusual peripheral odontogenic tumors in the differential diagnosis of gingival swellings.

    Differential diagnosis of gingival mass lesions includes several conditions and causes. Peripheral odontogenic tumors may mimic gingival swellings and, although rare, must be included in the differential diagnosis. The purpose of this article is to describe 3 different cases of peripheral odontogenic tumors and to discuss the differential diagnosis of gingival swelling. Histologic examination is mandatory when localized gingival swellings are surgically removed.

6/178. Congenital gingival granular cell tumor--a case report.

    Presented here is a case report of a congenital granular cell tumor commonly known as congenital epulis. It has been found to be ten time more common in females as compared to males. The most common presenting problem is that of difficulties in feeding and respiration. Surgical excision is indicated in case the above problems are present. In the absence of any respiratory or feeding difficulties it is advisable to wait for spontaneous regression.

7/178. Gingival metastasis from a medullary thyroid carcinoma: case report.

    BACKGROUND: Metastatic tumors to the oral cavity are rare, representing about 1% of oral tumors, and they affect jaws more often than the oral soft tissues. methods: Fifteen cases of metastases to the jaw bones from thyroid carcinoma were found in a recent review, with no cases located in the oral mucosa. RESULTS: The authors describe the first cases of gingival metastasis from a thyroid medullary carcinoma. CONCLUSIONS: Periodontists must recognize oral soft tissue metastases because they can be the first sign of an undiscovered malignancy, and they can be easily mistaken with several different benign lesions.

8/178. Primary gingival malignant melanoma. Report of 3 cases.

    BACKGROUND: Malignant melanoma is rare in the oral cavity and accounts for less than 1% of all melanomas. Nevertheless, the disease can be fatal, and early diagnosis and treatment may improve prognosis dramatically. The purpose of this paper is to report 3 new cases of primary malignant melanoma of the oral cavity arising in the gingiva, and to review the literature regarding intraoral melanoma. methods: Three cases are presented. One case was in the right mandibular molar area; the second in the right maxillary canine-premolar area; and the third in the left mandibular canine-premolar region. All patients were treated surgically, with postoperative radiotherapy. RESULTS: The first patient lived for 2 years and the second for 3 years before distant metastases were diagnosed from which they subsequently died. The third patient was lost from follow-up after 18 months. CONCLUSION: Primary oral malignant melanoma is a deadly disease. Early suspicion of this disease will allow prompt treatment and increase the prognosis for these patients.

9/178. Gingival lesions and nasal obstruction in an immunosuppressed patient post-liver transplantation.

    Although rare, metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) presenting only to the mandible, gingiva, and nasal cavity in patients subsequently found to have primary HCC has been reported. In the age of transplantation, certain HCC patients may receive treatment with an orthotopic liver transplant. Due to the proclivity of HCC for early micrometastases, immunosuppressive therapy can induce significant metastatic lesions. Nasal mass obstruction, gingival lesions, or facial growths in this population must be considered metastatic until proven otherwise.

10/178. myofibroma of gingiva: report of a case with immunohistochemical and ultrastructural study.

    Oral myofibroma is an uncommon, benign, solitary proliferation of myofibroblastic tissue. Few cases affecting maxillofacial region have been reported. We present a case of gingival myofibroma, diagnosed on clinical, histopathological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural basis.
