Oral manifestations and clinical progression of a rare double-hit B-cell lymphoma: a case report and review of the literature
Double-hit (DH) lymphoma is a rare subtype of B-cell lymphoma characterized by the chromosomal rearrangement of c-Myc and Bcl-2, and/or Bcl-6. c-Myc is an oncogene that keeps cells proliferative. Bcl-2 and Bcl-6 grant cells antiapoptotic features. The concurrent expression of these genes and their synergistic effect make DH lymphoma refractory to traditional chemotherapy, with an extremely poor prognosis. Here, we present a case of DH lymphoma in the oral cavity, including its rapid clinical course, extensive involvement of multiple sites and organs, and response to aggressive chemotherapy.

Denosumab in the treatment of maxillary central giant cell granuloma: report of two new cases
Central giant cell granulomas (CGCGs) are locally aggressive nonneoplastic lesions, which mainly affect the jaws of young patients.

Chikungunya (CHIK) fever is a tropical arbovirosis characterized by sudden fever, headache, rash, and severe arthralgia. The disease has been suggested to act as a trigger for several autoimmune disorders, especially rheumatoid arthritis. This abstract reports 2 cases of Sj ögren syndrome (SS) following CHIK infection. Both patients were female and presented with fever, arthralgia, rash, and arthritis during CHIK outbreak in Recife, Brazil. After several months, they developed severe sicca symptoms and 1 of them presented with parotid enlargement. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, and Endodontics)

Oral squamous cell carcinoma after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: 2 cases in patients with fanconi anemia
We report 2 cases of oral squamous cell carcinoma in male patients with FA who underwent hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Both patients presented with oral lichenoid lesions, compatible with chronic graft vs host disease. In the first case, a 16-year-old patient presented with an extensive infiltrative and necrotic lesion on the border of the tongue.

Epstein-barr –positive ulcers of the oral cavity associated with immunosuppression in a patient with cancer
A 24-year-old man with synovial sarcoma was hospitalized for neutropenic fever after chemotherapy, complaining of gingival pain for 1 day. No lymph node involvement was detected during neck palpation. Intraoral exam revealed a purple lesion involving the attached gingiva on the maxilla and mandible, of increased size and with a detachable overlying white plaque. There was rapid evolution to ulcerated lesions, causing an inability to feed. We performed an incisional biopsy and referred the patient for anatomopathologic examination, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and culture for fungi and bacteria, a prescription of chlorh...

Central hemangioma of the anterior mandible with aggressive clinical appearance
Central hemangioma (CH) of the jaws is a rare benign vascular neoplasm of variable radiographic appearance. A 32-year-old man was referred for evaluation of an ulcerated mass on the anterior mandible causing facial asymmetry for the last 6 months. The patient reported progressive growth and bleeding episodes. Intraoral examination revealed an erythematous and necrotic swelling in the lower anterior gingiva. Computerized tomography revealed a well-defined multilocular hypodense lesion involving the mandibular symphysis, containing hyperdense foci, with expansion and destruction of the buccal cortical bone, and teeth displac...

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
A 7-month-old female infant was sent to the clinic diagnosed by the oncology unit with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. The disease was detected at the time of her birth. She showed an increase in volume in the nasolabial region that was treated as a hemangioma without response to treatment. Diagnosis was established through a Tru-Cut (MeritMedical, South Jordan, UT) biopsy and it was confirmed with immunohistochemistry. The treatment was established with chemotherapy, then, she was sent to our clinical unit for assessment and surgical treatment.

Variable expressivity and novel pten gene mutations in cowden syndrome
We reported an isolated case and 1 family with several individuals affected by CS. The isolated case showed typical features including fibrocystic breast disease, benign thyroid nodules, and multiple papillomatous lesions in the face and oral cavity and was caused by a novel nonsense mutation (c.940 G>T) in the PTEN gene. In the family, the proband showed erythema nodosum, duodenal ulcer, intestinal polyps, cervical lipoma, renal cysts, and glaucoma, whereas her family revealed multiple members with intestinal polyps and a sister with breast cancer diagnosed at early age.

Noncharacterized odontogenic lesion encompassed by primordial odontogenic tumor and adenomatoid odontogenic hamartoma
We are reporting a clinical case of the complex histology of an oral sample from an 8-year-old girl. The histology analysis shares characteristics of a primordial odontogenic tumor (POT) and adenomatoid odontogenic hamartoma (AOH). The clinical evaluation reveals a left submandibular soreness and the presence of 1 cm in diameter radiolucent image in the region of the mandibular third molar with expanded and thin cortical bone. After enucleation, we obtained a white soft mass, showing on histology an ameloblastic epithelium and a stellate reticulum enveloping hypercellular myxoid connective tissue.

Oral pseudolymphoma: a diagnostic challenge
Pseudolymphoma (PL) is a benign reactive lymphoproliferative disease secondary to known or unknown stimuli mimicking a lymphomatous-appearing picture with potential misdiagnosis of overt lymphoma. A 64-year-old white man was referred for evaluation of ulceration on the left side of the buccal mucosa with 1 week of duration. The medical history revealed Alzheimer disease treated with donepezil and vildagliptin. Regional lymphadenopathy was absent and computerized tomography (CT) scans did not show alterations.

Desmoplastic ameloblastoma in the maxilla: a case report
Desmoplastic ameloblastoma is a rare variant with unknown biologic behavior. The purpose of this work is to report a case of a male patient, 17 years old, for whom the incisional biopsy was conclusive for desmoplastic ameloblastoma. Computed tomography and prototype were part of the surgical planning. Partial maxillectomy with a 0.5-cm margin was performed, involving 2.1 through 1.6 tooth, the border of the nasal cavity, and less them 3 mm below the infraorbital foramen. The maxillary structure was reconstructed with a 2.0 titanium system screen, to minimize communication between the mouth and maxillary sinus while maintai...
