1/67. Delayed eruption of maxillary primary cuspid associated with compound odontoma.

    Impaction of primary teeth is very rare especially in the maxillary anterior teeth. A four-year-old male child with the complaint of delayed eruption of right maxillary primary cuspid due to the presence of odontoma is presented.

2/67. Oral plasmablastic lymphoma in previously undiagnosed hiv disease.

    Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is the second most common hiv-associated malignancy. This report details a case of the recently described entity plasmablastic lymphoma of the mouth in a patient who was later found to have severe hiv disease. The tumor manifested as a large ulcerated mass of the left maxillary alveolus, causing bony destruction and tooth mobility. Histologic examination of lesional tissue revealed a lymphoid tumor with a high proliferation rate containing lymphoplasmacytoid cells that were reactive to the plasma cell marker VS38c but not to CD20 or CD79a; these are features of the recently reported non-Hodgkin's lymphoma termed plasmablastic lymphoma. This is only the second report of an unusual tumor that has a predilection for the orofacial tissues.

3/67. 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.

4/67. Metastatic melanoma of the maxilla presenting as a gingival swelling.

    Malignant melanoma metastatic to the gingiva has been reported only once. We present a case in which the occurrence of melanoma in the gingiva followed extraction of a periapically "abscessed" tooth. Since the initial periapical mass may well have been a metastatic tumor, particularly in a patient undergoing therapy for disseminated malignant disease, the need for biopsy of such lesions is emphasized.

5/67. Benign cementoblastoma.

    An unusual case of cementoblastoma is presented. It is the second case to be published demonstrating involvement of the pulp, and it is the first instance of a cementoblastoma that appears to have evolved from an impacted tooth. A review of the literature substantiates the fact that this lesion may not be so uncommon as was previously thought, and that pain and facial asymmetry may be significant clinical features.

6/67. A case report of a compound odontoma causing delayed eruption of a central maxillary incisor: clinical and microscopic evaluation.

    A case of a compound odontoma caused delayed eruption of a central incisor in the maxilla is presented with clinical, radiographic, and microscopic findings. The odontoma was surgically removed and microscopic examination showed a lot of crown-like structures in a very irregular form, some of which were fused to each other at their apical parts. Enamel and pre-enamel were totally abnormal, whereas the inside of the pulp chamber tissue did not present any histological sign of functional tissue. The most homogeneous tissue was dentin. The removal of the odontoma was followed by a rapid eruption of the impacted central incisor.

7/67. 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.

8/67. Compound odontoma--diagnosis and treatment: three case reports.

    Odontomas are the most common type of odontogenic tumors and generally they are asymptomatic. This paper describes three cases of compound odontomas diagnosed in children due to dislodgement or over-retention of primary anterior teeth and/or swelling of the cortical bone. In all cases, the surgical excision of the lesions was performed and, in one case, orthodontic treatment was adopted in order to move an impacted permanent tooth to its normal position. The results achieved indicate that the early diagnosis of odontomas allows the adoption of a less complex and expensive treatment and ensures better prognosis.

9/67. 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.

10/67. Calcifying odontogenic cyst. Report of two cases.

    Calcifying odontogenic cyst(COC) is an uncommon developmental odontogenic cyst and was first described by Gorlin in 1962. It is considered as extremely rare and accounts for only 1% of the jaw cysts reported. Here, we present two cases of which one occurred in a 32 year old female with a swelling in the lower anterior region crossing the midline and another in a 29 year old male with a swelling in the upper anterior region without crossing the midline. The radiograph revealed a well circumscribed radiolucency in the first case and with some specks of opacities in the second case. It was not associated with any missing or impacted tooth. Histopathological examination was done with hematoxylin and Eosin and in addition it was studied immunohistochemically for cytokeratin. The Classical histological features of lining epithelium in the form of cords, presence of ghost cells and some amount of dentinoid tissue were seen. The nature of COC is controversial. Here we have discussed the controversies regarding COC as well as the various proposed classifications for this lesion. Based on the histopathological findings, the diagnosis was confirmed as calcifying odontogenic cyst. These cases are presented here for its rarity.
