84-year-old female with a right cheek mass
An 84-year-old female patient was referred to a local oral and maxillofacial surgeon for evaluation of an enlarging right cheek mass of three months ’ duration. The lesion was first noted by the treating dentist following restorative procedures performed in the right upper quadrant. Proximity of the lesion to the site of prior maxillary buccal infiltrations led to an initial clinical impression of a hematoma secondary to local anesthetic injec tion.

Apocrine epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma of the parotid gland with concurrent oncocytic change: A novel variant
Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (EMCa) is a rare, low-grade, malignant salivary gland tumor. Herein, we report an unusual case of an EMCa with extensive apocrine and oncocytic changes. The tumor occurred in the left parotid gland of a 68-year-old male. Histologically, the tumor was characterized by a biphasic arrangement of luminal ductal cells and abluminal polygonal myoepithelial cells with prominent apocrine differentiation in the luminal layer and dense eosinophilic cytoplasm in both components.

The Fallacy of pre-Kidney Transplant “Dental Clearance”
In interprofessional practice in the hospital setting, oral medicine and hospital-based dental providers are often asked to provide “dental clearance” prior to medical procedures. While this practice can identify sources of acute infection, facilitate patient education about their oral health and establish recommendations for management of chronic oral infection prior to medical therapy, the dental clearance process falls sh ort of assuring the absence of oral health complications during or following the medical procedure.

Infection prevalence and patterns in self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the face
Self-inflicted gunshot wounds (SIGSWs) to the craniomaxillofacial region are uncommon injuries but are associated with a high mortality rate. Therefore, treating these patients is a rare occurrence even in the largest trauma centers. As with many rare conditions, data specifically addressing this injury pattern are scarce. Because of the proximity of the blast, even low-velocity injuries can be associated with significant avulsion of tissue, comminution of structures, and tissue die back. Previous case reports have recommended the use of prophylactic antibiotics, but no study has specifically investigated the postinjury in...

Low-level laser as a complementary therapy in orofacial granulomatosis management: a case report
Orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) is a chronic inflammatory disease that typically affects the soft tissues of the orofacial region. The most common clinical manifestation of OFG is lip swelling, which may be associated with intrabuccal ulcerations and increased growth of the gingiva and mucosa, resulting in a cobblestone-like appearance, as well as cutaneous erythema and facial edema. The treatment for OFG is challenging and presents variable prognoses, which are sometimes considered unsatisfactory.
