Hemangiomatous Proliferation in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Its Mimicry in the Regional Lymph Nodes
J Contemp Dent Pract. 2022 May 1;23(5):479-481.ABSTRACTOral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the most common malignancy of the oral cavity with pathognomonic histopathologic features of invading nests, islands, or chords of malignant epithelial cells. Although the histological features are quite uniform across a majority of the cases, they can drastically change in different variants of OSCC, such as clear cell, spindle cell/sarcomatoid, adenoid/acantholytic/pseudoglandular, basaloid, papillary and adenosquamous, etc.PMID:35986453 (Source: J Contemp Dent Pract)

Association of Stathmin (Op18) with TNM Staging and Grading of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Its Role in Tumor Progression
CONCLUSION: An increased expression of stathmin was detected in various grades of OSCC and also with respect to staging of oral cancer. Half the cases of OSCC with lymph node metastasis showed high intensity scores of stathmin. Based on the above facts, stathmin expression was indicated as a potential tool for predicting the outcome of oral cancer patients with lymph node metastasis and its expression was increased in the group with poor prognosis.CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: Any damage/mutation to stathmin can result in defects in cell division resulting in aneuploidy and in turn cancers. In this study, the results showed that ...
