1/11. Oral and maxillofacial surgical considerations for a case of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria.

    Hutchinson-Guilford progeria is a rare genetic condition showing the stigmata of accelerated ageing combined with severe growth retardation. patients with this condition show a classical facies and clinical features with an average age of death of 13, usually due to atherosclerotic changes. Craniofacial and dental manifestations include mandibular and maxillary hypoplasia, both vertically and horizontally. Delayed and abnormal tooth eruption and morphology are commonly present. The long-term medical prognosis and eruption potential of individual teeth is important when considering treatment. In addition to this, surgical planning and surgical technique must be modified by the abnormal facial morphology, dermal inelasticity, potential anaesthetic difficulties, and ongoing deterioration in the medical condition. These factors mandate early and definitive intervention for oral surgical conditions. We report the case of a 13-year-old male treated for pericoronitis and oral pain relating to delayed eruption of first permanent molars.

2/11. Intra-oral carcinoma simulating benign oral disease.

    Intra-oral carcinoma can present in a variety of ways. Whilst carcinoma classically presents as an irregular, indurated, painless mass or ulcer, it is also recognised as being a great 'mimic' of benign lesions. A series of four cases of intra-oral squamous cell carcinoma is presented in which the initial presentation suggested a lesion of benign or dental origin. Factors which raise the index of suspicion are discussed.

3/11. laser therapy for a haemophiliac. Case report.

    With adequate precaution, dental procedures which are likely to cause haemorrhage in haemophiliac patients may now be performed with a greatly reduced risk. A case report of a 'moderate' haemophiliac who presented with acute pericoronitis is described. The operculum associated with an erupting molar tooth was excised using a laser beam. Pre- or post-operative infusion of factor viii was not required. The applications and possible implications of the use of this treatment modality are discussed.

4/11. Large-cell carcinoma metastatic to the jaw. Report of a case.

    A case of two metastatic lesions of the oral mucosa simulating odontogenic infections is presented. One lesion mimicked chronic pericoronitis, and the other lesion mimicked a dental abscess. The case stresses the need for routine biopsy and pathology examination of conditions found in the oral cavity.

5/11. infectious mononucleosis first manifest by pericoronitis: two case reports.

    Two cases of infectious mononucleosis first presenting with pericoronitis are described. Resistant or unexplained oral symptoms, for example resistant bilateral pericoronitis as in our cases, should alert the dental practitioner to the possibility of IM.

6/11. Sickle cell crisis precipitated by periodontal infection: report of two cases.

    Two cases of sickle cell crisis precipitated by periodontal infection are presented. Sickle cell anemia, causal factors in sickle cell crisis, and dental treatment considerations for crisis and noncrisis patients with sickle cell disease are discussed.

7/11. Selective anesthesias of peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve due to odontogenic infection.

    infection of dental origin may induce anesthesias of peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of such neuropathies. This article presents two cases in which focal odontogenic infection caused sensory disruption at peripheral points along the maxillary and mandibular divisions of the trigeminal nerve. In both cases resolution of symptoms followed extraction of teeth responsible for the infection.

8/11. pericoronitis and accidental paracetamol overdose: a cautionary tale.

    A case of accidental paracetamol overdose in a patient suffering from pericoronitis is described. Self-medication with paracetamol was exacerbated by the prescription of a compound analgesic containing paracetamol by the patient's dental practitioner. The consequent overdose of paracetamol resulted in liver toxicity and acute liver failure. The hazards of accidental paracetamol overdose are discussed and analgesic preparations containing paracetamol described.

9/11. Sickle cell disease: a diagnostic dilemma.

    The case history is described of a patient with sickle cell anaemia who developed a unilateral infarct of the mandible following a sickle cell crisis. The interruption of the blood supply resulted in an anaesthesia of the inferior dental nerve and pulpal necrosis of otherwise sound premolar and molar teeth. The diagnostic and management difficulties of the case are discussed, and recommendations are made for treatment of such patients in light of the problems encountered.

10/11. Intracoronal radiolucency in an incompletely erupted permanent molar with a diagnosis of pericoronitis: importance of radiographic examination.

    Because of clinical signs and symptoms, a diagnosis of pericoronitis in a partially erupted, partially impacted first molar was made. A more thorough diagnosis was made with the help of a periapical radiograph that showed caries and thus revealed an irreversible pulpitis. Appropriate treatment was the result.
