11/38. Ectopic submandibular gland presenting as a swelling in the floor of mouth.

    The authors describe a patient who presented with a left sublingual swelling. Ultrasonic and sialographic investigation showed no salivary tissue in the expected left submandibular region, but a large salivary gland in the left floor of the mouth deep to the mylohyoid muscle. This is likely to represent an ectopically positioned submandibular gland.

12/38. diagnosis of systemic sarcoidosis prompted by orofacial manifestations: a review of the literature.

    BACKGROUND: sarcoidosis is a multifactorial systemic inflammatory disorder of unknown origin characterized by many potential signs and symptoms, as well as by the presence of noncaseating granulomas in the organs involved. sarcoidosis also may manifest in the oral and maxillofacial region. CASE DESCRIPTION: The authors describe a patient with xerostomia, dysgeusia, oral burning, xerophthalmia and bilateral parotid enlargement. She was diagnosed as having systemic sarcoidosis on the basis of the histologic findings of a biopsy of the labial minor salivary gland, as well as subsequent diagnostic evalutons. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Enlargement of major salivary glands may be the first sign of sarcoidosis in a patient with few other symptoms or clinical findings suggestive of the disease. This case emphasizes the importance of including sarcoidosis in the differential diagnosis of bilateral parotid swelling associated with xerostomia. It also highlights the dentist's potential role in the diagnosis and dental treatment of patients with systemic sarcoidosis.

13/38. A rare cause of wheezing in infancy.

    We describe an infant with recurrent wheezing and cough caused by an oropharyngeal cyst. Mucosal oropharyngeal cysts arise from obstruction or traumatic severance of a duct in a minor salivary gland, which leads to retention of mucous secretion . The mucosal cyst of the oropharynx is a rare cause of respiratory distress in the infants. The clinical symptoms depend on the size, shape, and location of the cyst.

14/38. Plunging or cervical ranula. review of the literature and report of 4 cases.

    A review of the literature pertaining to plunging ranula is presented with special emphasis on the historical development of the various aetiological theories and treatment recommendations. Also 4 cases of plunging ranula are presented; three were treated by extirpation of the sublingual gland and one was treated by exteriorization of the ranula into the oral cavity. The treatment methods used here are discussed in relationship to the accepted aetiological theory.

15/38. Extramammary Paget's disease of the oral mucosa with in situ carcinoma of minor salivary gland ducts.

    This paper describes a case of oral extramammary Paget's disease associated with widespread in situ carcinoma of minor salivary gland ducts and invasive, poorly differentiated carcinoma. Clinically, the case was characterized by unusually extensive and rapidly spreading erythroplakia of the oral mucosa, accompanied by a relatively small invasive salivary gland carcinoma. Despite the similarities of breast and salivary tissue, oral extramammary Paget's disease appears to be extremely rare.

16/38. Multifocal eosinophilic granuloma--a case report.

    A 1.5 year old Kuwaiti child male presented with a massive bilateral ulcerative lesion of palate and gingiva with massive submandibular lymphadenopathy which were proven histologically to be due to an eosinophilic granuloma. Bone survey was normal. The patient was treated by chemotherapy and irradiation locally with dramatic response and no relapse occurred in more than 18 months of follow up.

17/38. Demodex infestation of oral mucosal sebaceous glands.

    An unusual case of oral infestation with the hair mite Demodex is presented. The parasites were observed in enlarged ectopic sebaceous glands following biopsy. From a review of the literature, it would appear that oral involvement has not been reported previously.

18/38. multiple myeloma presenting with extensive oral and perioral amyloidosis.

    The case of a young adult patient, with a kappa-light-chain-secreting multiple myeloma and extensive oral and salivary gland amyloid deposits, is presented. This case illustrates the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach using biochemical, radiographic, and relevant histologic investigations in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma. Factors influencing the prognosis of this neoplastic condition are discussed. Microscopic examination of the oral amyloid deposits supports the suggested central role played by the macrophage in amyloidogenesis.

19/38. Oral amyloidosis: two unusual case presentations.

    Two cases of oral amyloidosis are reported. In each case there were unusual oral manifestations. In the first case the patient's only complaints were of recurrent swelling of the submandibular glands and xerostomia. The diagnosis of amyloidosis was determined from a labial salivary gland biopsy. In the second case an enlarged tongue had produced displacement of the teeth, causing malocclusion. The resulting difficulty in chewing stimulated the patient to seek advice. In each case the diagnosis was confirmed by electron microscopy, congo red staining, and serum and urine electrophoresis.

20/38. oral manifestations of sarcoidosis: report of a case masquerading as a neoplasm.

    An unusual case is reported in which sarcoidosis presented originally as a cheek mass unrelated to the parotid or submandibular glands. The clinical findings were highly suggestive of a neoplastic process. A general review of sarcoidosis follows the case report.
