Unusual exophytic gingival lesion in a newborn treated with diode laser

Gingival lesions rarely occur in newborns. However, when present, they commonly worry the parents and impair the infant's feeding, thus affecting growth. Such lesions are usually nonneoplastic in nature, although malignancies may develop; therefore, specimens must be submitted for histopathologic examination. A 2-month-old girl presented with a 10-mm nodule on the anterior lower alveolar ridge in association with natal tooth extraction and neonatal tooth eruption. The lesion was excised with high-power laser under local anesthesia, and a histopathologic diagnosis of a peripheral ossifying fibroma was made.

Abstract Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis (JHF) is an unknown hereditary disorder with variable penetrance. The characterizations of this disease consist of different signs and symptoms such as multiple tumorous (tumor-like) muco-cutaneous proliferation, gingival hypertrophy, perianal lesions, articular contractures, and osteolytic lesions. A 3-year-old girl with numerous painless nodular masses on her gingival, ear and anal areas is presented in this case report. Based on characteristic histological features, the diagnosis of JHF was made. The patient underwent surgery following general anesthesia and the above area...

We present a case report of a female with severe generalized gingival fibromatosis and hypertrichosis which was treated by conventional gingivectomies under local anesthesia. Postoperative healing was uneventful with a marked improvement in patient's appearance and oral hygiene.

We presented with a hypothetical that the dislocated LMA may cause carotid sinus syndrome (CSS). Interventions: The patient's heart rate (HR) gradually rosed up as soon as the LMA adjusted back to the normal position. Outcomes: The patient was comfortable in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU) and had no adverse sequelae. Lessons: The position of LMA Supreme should be confirmed throughout the surgery especially for the ones who has changed the position and the head was covered by surgical drapes.

ConclusionsDiagnosis of minor salivary gland sialolithiasis is challenging due to the difficulty of detecting sialoliths on imaging. A well-circumscribed mass was detected in the upper lip, and ultrasound examination revealed a round lesion, raising the suspicion of a benign tumor. Other diseases that can develop at the upper lip are calcified lymph node, phlebolith, fibroma, pleomorphic adenoma, myxoma, vascular malformation, salivary gland tumor, non-specific sialadenitis, and malignant tumor. Surgical excision is the favored approach for confirming a diagnosis of intramucosal nodular lesions.

A cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) usually appears as a mixed radiographic image. However, the initial lesions may appear radiolucent. The aim of this report was to describe a case of initial COF in a child. A 10-year-old girl presented with a mandibular swelling of 7 months of duration. A cone beam computed tomography revealed a well-circumscribed, unilocular, and hypodense image in the right mandibular body. The lesion was in the primary molar region, causing displacement of the involved teeth., An incisional biopsy was performed under local anesthesia.

We report a highly unusual case of cemento-osseous dysplasia in a 32-year-old male complaining of discomfort of the left cheek. The radiographic examination revealed that a spherical radiopaque lesion, which involved a tooth, was located in the left maxillary sinus. A definitive diagnosis could not be made based only on the radiographic and clinical findings. An excisional biopsy was performed by opening the left maxillary sinus under the general anaesthesia. Histopathological examination revealed that the lesion consists of fibrous tissue, woven bone and masses of cementum-like material associated with a dislocated tooth....

Background: Acrochordons are a one of the commonest type of benign cutaneous tumors. These are soft skin fibromas, and have been thought to represent as a cutaneous marker of metabolic syndrome. Treatments like snipping, cryotherapy, electrocautery, and radiofrequency ablation though effective, have there own limitations.
