1/5. 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.

3/5. 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.

5/5. Dens evaginatus on a wisdom tooth: a diagnostic dilemma. Case report.

    pericoronitis is the most common odontogenic problem associated with the wisdom tooth in young men and women. patients may present with problems associated with infection, swelling and pain. However, other associated pathology such as caries, periodontal disease and referred pain from the temporomandibular joint must be investigated when treating pain from the wisdom tooth. The authors wish to present a case in which the pain from a wisdom tooth was due to a fractured dens evaginatus. The importance of this dental anomaly should not be overlooked.
