Orofacial manifestations of spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy: case report
Cerebral palsy can be defined as a chronic disorder of posture and movement. The spastic quadriplegic modality is the most serious condition of this disease, involving the lower and upper limbs, with impairment of the innervations that control the movements of the mouth, tongue, and pharynx. A male patient, previously diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, was seen at a specialized university dental service for patients with special needs. During the clinical examination, it was found that the patient had swollen gums, with bleeding at the time of stimulation; his state of oral hygiene was regular and performe...

A modify sagittal split osteotomy for odontogenic keratocyst surgical treatment
A 21-year-old male patient, on medication for schizophrenia, was forwarded from another service after an incisional biopsy that resulted in diagnosis of an odontogenic cyst. The first physical exam presented facial symmetry, satisfactory mouth opening, pain during palpation on the left lingual floor, and intraoral swelling. Orthopantogram and computed tomography revealed an osteolytic intraosseous well-defined lesion measuring about 45  × 16 × 12 mm and bone expansion located on the mandibular left side, surrounding the crown of an unerupted third molar.

Prophylactic photobiomodulation protocol in perioral herpetic infection: case series
The herpes simplex virus usually affects the lips and the perioral region, and the use of antivirals is the most common treatment. A preventive approach is not yet consolidated in the literature. Our aim was to evaluate the clinical response of prophylactic photobiomodulation in individuals with perioral herpetic infection (PHI). Five patients with a history of PHI underwent 20 sessions of photobiomodulation: 10 consecutive sessions and another 10 sessions after 6 months. The photobiomodulation parameters used were 780 nm, 100 mW, 40.65 J/cm2, 4 J/point, 60 points in the perioral region. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicin...

Submandibular lipoma excision: a case report
The aim of this study is to report the excision of a benign tumor of adipose tissue in the submandibular region. A 57-year-old dark-skinned male patient reported increased volume on the left side of his face, with approximately 10 years of evolution. The physical exam showed increased submandibular volume on the left side: a nodule measuring about 10 cm, with a soft and mobile consistency and painless. Fine needle aspiration puncture exam, contrast computed tomography, and ultrasound of the affected site were performed and the result was suggestive of benign tumor of adipose tissue.

Enucleation of mandibular odontogenic keratocyst: conduct report
The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is a developmental cyst originated from the cell debris of the dental lamina. This lesion affects the mandible in 60% to 80% of cases, and the posterior body and mandible ramus are the most frequently affected regions. The following clinical case report is about a 24-year-old male patient without comorbidities who complained of facial swelling. On the panoramic radiographic exam, the presence of unilocular circumscribed radiolucent image was observed in the body and in the right mandible ramus, suggesting the hypothesis of OKC.

Resection of mandibular multicystic ameloblastoma: case report
Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic tumor that has an aggressive behavior capable of causing extensive involvement of the jaw, especially the mandible. At the first consultation, the patient had an asymptomatic intraoral swelling and on the right side of the face. On tomographic examination, a hypodense multiloculated image with cortical perforation was observed from the posterior portion of the mandibular body to the condylar neck and coronoid process. Incisional biopsy was performed and demonstrated a multicystic ameloblastoma. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, and Endodontics)

Multidisciplinary approach in a patient with sd22q11 deletion syndrome: case report
The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (SD22q11), known as Digeorge syndrome, has a wide phenotypic spectrum with more than 180 clinical signs described in the literature, related to both physical and behavioral aspects, which makes the diagnosis challenging in relation to the condition. The 22q11.2 microdeletion is detected only by molecular genetic techniques such as comparative hybridization of 2 DNA samples. A 13-year-old female patient diagnosed with SD22q11 was referred for specialized dental care for special patients.

Extensive adenomatoid odontogenic tumor associated with dentigerous cyst in maxilla: report of an unusual case
A 12-year-old male patient was referred for evaluation of an expansive lesion in the left maxilla region. Computed tomography showed a hypodense lesion with well-defined margins measuring approximately 5 cm in its larger diameter associated with included left canine. Complete enucleation of the lesion was performed jointly with removal of the impacted tooth. Histopathologic examination revealed a benign lesion originating from the odontogenic epithelium characterized by proliferation of cuboid and spindle epithelial cells arranged predominantly in a solid arrangement, in which ductiform structures stood out.

Osseointegrated implant in a multi-treated patient for rheumatoid arthritis with the use of tocilizumabe
The present study reports a case of an osseointegrated implant in a patient using the rheumatoid arthritis drug Tocilizumab. This an alternative antirheumatic drug is not explored in the literature regarding its effect on osseointegration.Case Summary: Tooth 36 had extensive longitudinal fracture. Extraction was performed and bone healing awaited. Subsequently, the implant was installed without the suspension of Tocilizumab due to the risks of disease activity and painful symptoms of the patient.

Compound odontoma: report of two cases from diagnosis to orthodontic approach
The current report presents 2 cases of young patients with compound odontomas. Case 1 refers to a 15-year-old boy who was referred complaining of dental misalignment after delayed eruption without alteration of oral mucosa. Case 2 refers to a 12-year-old girl presenting a swelling in the lower alveolar mucosa of the right canine region. Radiographically, in both patients there was a mixed lesion very suggestive of compound odontoma associated with unerupted left superior canine and right inferior canine, respectively.

Spindle cell tumor involving the jaw of a young patient
An 18-year-old male patient without previous comorbidities reported pain in the left side of the jaw. Clinically, 34 and 35 teeth mobility were observed. Radiographic images exhibited a poorly defined board radiolucent lesion extending from tooth 33 to 35 with tooth resorption. Antimicrobial and analgesic therapy were prescribed, and the patient was referred to specialized care. Computed tomography and resonance evaluation confirmed previous image findings bringing the diagnostic hypothesis of lateral periodontal cyst or other neoplasm of odontogenic origin.

An unusual case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma mimicking a sialoadenoma papilliferum: a case report
The present study describes a mucoepidermoid carcinoma that clinically presented as a papillary lesion. A 52-year-old woman was referred to evaluate a lesion in the palate. Intraoral exam showed a nodular lesion, delimited, with exophytic surface, associate with a smooth and translucid bubble, in the soft palate near to the left retromolar region. Diagnostic hypotheses were sialoadenoma papilliferum, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and papilloma. An incisional biopsy was performed. Histologic sections showed a fragment of epithelium with papillary projections, with proliferation towards connective tissue presenting nests of cell...

Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma from palatal minor salivary gland: a case report
Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma is a high-grade salivary gland cancer in which malignant transformation occurs in a previously benign pleomorphic adenoma. A 56-year-old woman attended the Hospital Dental Center presenting an exophytic sessile nodule on the hard palate. She had been diagnosed with a pleomorphic adenoma in this region a year prior. Computed tomography revealed a hypodense image in the left region of the hard palate. Microscopic examination demonstrated a neoplasm composed of epithelial and myoepithelial cells, organized in ductal structures, cords, and nests. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Patho...
