1/6. An oral 'follicular' choristoma presenting in the anterior floor of the mouth.

    A 46-year-old Asian man presented with hair growing from the anterior floor of his mouth. The diagnosis of this lesion was an oral choristoma of a 'follicular' variety. A choristoma is defined as an overgrowth of normal tissue at an abnormal site. Only one other case of this particular lesion has been reported to date. This article proposes mechanisms as to the aetiology of this lesion, and its inclusion in the classification of oral choristomas.

2/6. Glial choristoma.

    Glial choristoma is a developmental malformation of heterotopic central nervous tissue with limited growth potential. It is considered to be one of the very rare choristomatous lesions involving the oral cavity. This report details the morphological characteristics of glial choristoma arising from the palate in a newborn. Bulk of the tissue comprised of mature neuroglial tissue with astrocytes representing developing brain, cystic spaces lined by cuboidal epithelium indicating ependymal layer. Clinical features, associated malformations and histomorphology of this lesion is discussed.

3/6. Osseous choristoma of the oral soft tissue. Case report.

    Oral osseous choristoma is a rare developmental alteration, their principal localization is nearly to base of the tongue (foramen caecum). The oral mucosa localization of osseous choristoma is extremely rare. At date only 10 cases of oral mucosa osseous choristoma had been reported. In the present paper we reported a new case of oral mucosa osseous choristoma in a klippel-feil syndrome patient. A review of available literature was made. We presented a 28 years old female patient who showed into the right oral mucosa, a hard, mobile, and asymptomatic mass, with minimum 4 years of evolution. The histological image showed a lesion constituted by lamellar bone, osteocytes and haematopoyetic tissue. The diagnosis of osseous choristoma was made. It is discusses their possible association with klippel-feil syndrome. The osseous choristoma of buccal mucosa is most frequently in fifth decade of the life although is reported between 12-to-64 years old, with a female predisposition.

4/6. Cartilaginous choristoma deep in the upper midline oral vestibule.

    The choristoma is a tumour-like mass of normal cells in an abnormal location. Intraoral cartilaginous choristoma is a rare lesion. We report on a cartilaginous choristoma arising in the upper midline oral vestibule.

5/6. Ectomesenchymal chondromyxoid tumor of the hard palate--a case report.

    Ectomesenchymal chondromyxoid tumor (ECMT) is a rare tumor. Only 26 cases of ECMT have been reported, all occurred in the anterior tongue. We present a case of a 30-year-old male with a nodule in the hard palate, which was reported as ECMT on histopathology. The differential diagnosis considered included are extraskeletal myxoid chondroma, ECMT, pleomorphic adenoma, oral focal mucinosis, chondroid choristoma, and ossifying fibromyxoid tumor. After serial sections no other component was observed and a diagnosis of ECMT was made by exclusion. The patient is asymptomatic on follow up. A review of existing literature is also presented here.

6/6. Osseous choristoma of oral cavity--report of two cases and review of the literature.

    Osseous choristoma of the oral cavity is an extremely rare lesion. Two cases of osseous choristomas of oral cavity, representing two different natures of such lesions are reported. One was situated on the dorsal surface of posterior tongue just anterior to the circumvallate papillae and the other on the right buccal mucosa just below the orifice of the Stensen's duct. To date, about 73 cases of oral osseous choristoma have been reported in the literature including the two present cases, of which, 61 and 8 cases occurred in the tongue and buccal mucosa, respectively. The clinical and microscopic characteristics, and their common sites of these peculiar lesions are presented. The origin and pathogenesis of the lesion are discussed and the literature on the subject is reviewed.
