11/19. Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis associated with von Willebrand's disease: a case report.

    patients with hemorrhagic disorders are a concern to the dental profession because of their propensity for severe and prolonged intraoral bleeding following therapy, especially subgingival debridement and surgical procedures. One of the most common and perhaps least recognized hereditary coagulation disorder is von Willebrand's disease, also referred to as pseudohemophilia, vascular hemophilia, angiohemophilia, and idiopathic prolonged bleeding time. A case report of a patient with von Willebrand's disease who presented complaining of acute gingival pain and bleeding is presented.

12/19. Progressive osseous destruction as a complication of HIV-periodontitis.

    A pathologic condition is described, characterized by rampant necrosis of gingival mucosa, periodontium, and related osseous structures associated with systemic infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is believed that this condition is an extension beyond the normal clinical course of HIV-periodontitis (HIV-P) and manifests itself in three progressive stages: (1) HIV-associated gingivitis, (2) HIV-P, and (3) an extension of HIV-P to osseous necrosis. Two cases of osseous destruction attending HIV-P are reported, one of which led to initial diagnosis of HIV infection. They represent the final stage of disease progression with localized necrosis of gingiva, periodontium, and alveolar bone.

13/19. oral manifestations of agranulocytosis associated with methimazole therapy.

    This paper reports a case of agranulocytosis that developed in a patient with hyperthyroidism two months after the administration of methimazole. The patient manifested symptoms of fever, sore throat, profound leukopenia, and oral complications such as generalized gingival necrosis and mucosa ulceration, which subsequently abated upon withdrawal of the drug. Dental practitioners should be aware of the potential of agranulocytosis associated with methimazole therapy. The oral manifestations should be kept in mind.

14/19. Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis in a case of systemic lupus erythematosus.

    Presented is an unusually severe case of acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG) in association with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), in which the patient was observed to slough a considerable amount of attached gingival tissues and eventually to lose a number of teeth and supporting bone. The usual limited and treatable nature of ANUG is reviewed, and attention is directed to the mechanisms by which SLE and therapeutic amounts of steroids can contribute to the increased severity of the oral disease.

15/19. Acute recurrent gingivitis. A clinical entity.

    A typical case of a previously undescribed form of gingivitis which is self-limiting and recurrent is discussed. The signs and symptoms include acute pain and swelling of interdental papillae with regional lymphadenopathy. As the disease progresses the localized swelling quickly spreads to the adjacent marginal and papillary gingiva. Ulceration is infrequent and without pseudomembrane formation or interdental cratering. We believe this to be a unique form of gingivitis and suggest the name acute recurrent gingivitis (ARG).

16/19. Stress, anxiety and the dental patient: the missing specification.

    The importance of stress and anxiety as contributing to the complex aetiology of dental disease is becoming more widely recognized. Clinical examples of organic dental disease which were relieved when their psychological causes had been uncovered are described. It suggested that specialized psychiatric skills are not always necessary in dealing with such cases. The dentist's own personal life experience, his human understanding and his interest his patients' well-being are usually sufficient. Equal attention must be given to all data in both physical and psychological spheres if the patient's best interests are to be served.

17/19. T-cell lymphoma associated with periodontal disease and HIV infection. A case report.

    A case is described of gingival non-Hodgkins lymphoma presenting in a site previously diagnosed as HIV-periodontitis. The lymphoma presented along with other signs of HIV infection and AIDS, which taken together were compatible with increased immunosuppression and reactivation of Epstein-Barr virus. The implications of these findings are discussed, and it is suggested that areas of gingiva which show rapid localised recession, associated with hiv seropositivity, should be monitored closely and considered for biopsy if abnormal signs are detected.

18/19. Necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis in an HIV patient.

    This case report emphasizes: aggressive HIV-related periodontal lesions can be managed by general practitioners using standard scaling and root planing procedures in combination with proper antibiotic and antimicrobial pharmaceuticals; these lesions can be managed over long periods of time with adequate home care and professional recall; motivation from both the dental team and the patient can translate into a very rewarding result which can improve the quality of life for persons who experience the extreme consequences of HIV-associated dental disease.

19/19. Clinical and radiographic presentations of hiv-1 necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis.

    hiv-1-associated periodontal diseases have been reported in the literature for several years. Criteria for the diagnosis of these diseases have not been universally accepted, although there are numerous papers describing the clinical entity. These case reports provide clinical and radiographic evidence of a type of periodontal disease with bone and soft tissue destruction which differentiates it from "conventional" periodontal diseases found in both hiv-1-infected patients and those not infected by the virus. It is important, from both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects, for clinicians to be able to make this distinction. The appropriate use of clinical and radiographic findings is extremely helpful in the diagnosis, particularly in the case of defining hiv-1 necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis (NUP). Whether the patterns of gingival changes and bone loss described in these case reports are specific to hiv-1-seropositive persons or rather represent severe immunosuppression requires further investigation.
