Desmoplastic Fibroma Associated with Tuberous Sclerosis: Case Report and Literature Review
We report a new case of a maxillary DF in a 12 year old girl with TSC. The presentation, diagnostic process, and management of this case are discussed, and the literature is reviewed for the additional cases of DF associated with TSC; seven previously reported cases are summarized. Small sample size limits conclusions, but there may be differences in the presentations of DF of the jaws in patients with TSC versus the general population. DF of the jaws may be a manifestation of TSC, and the authors propose surveillance panoramic radiographs every 2-3 years in patients with TSC. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pat...

This article reports the results of an Internet survey of non-dental professionaland allied health care professionals to learn what they might offer to patients who may be seeking treatment for TMDs. The official organizational websites for all groups, as well as the websites of individual practitioners in each group, were reviewed. Most of the official websites had little or no information about TMDs, but some members of every group surveyed were offering to treat TMDs in their offices. The variety of treatments being offered went far beyond the boundaries of appropriate TMD management in the 21st century. These results a...
