Radiculomegaly: a case report of this rare dental finding with review of the associated oculo-facio-cardio-dental syndrome
ConclusionsBecause dental anomalies, especially radiculomegaly, are a primary feature of OFCD syndrome, dentists should be aware of the clinical and radiographic features. Radiculomegaly poses a distinct challenge to dentists, and reports of dental therapy provided to these patients are sparse. Early diagnosis of the syndrome may prevent dental challenges and improve prognosis. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Oral Radiology)

Giant dentinogenic ghost cell tumor: A case report
We report here a case of DGCT in a 38-year-old male, presenting with enormous extraoral protrusion, which radiographically was predominantly radiolucent with radiopaque areas. Microscopically, it was observed to be a solid ameloblastomatous proliferation with pseudoglandular structures associated with clusters of ghost cells. Abundant dentinoid material adjacent to the epithelial sheets containing entrapped epithelial tumor cells was also evident. Immunohistochemistry revealed positivity for pan-cytokeratin (CK), CK-14, CK-7, and CK-19; CD138; and β-catenin. The Ki-67 proliferative index was very low (
