A new TRPV4 mutation in a case of multiple central giant cell granulomas of the jaws
Sporadic central giant cell granulomas of the jaws (GCGJ) are often solitary lesions, characterized by KRAS, FGFR1, and TRPV4 somatic mutations. Multifocal lesions may occur and are associated with hyperparathyroidism or underlying syndromes, such as cherubism, marked by SH3BP2 mutations, and RASopathies, which are caused by mutations in the FGFR-RAS-RAF-MEK-ERK signaling cascade. The diagnosis of multiple GCGJ can be challenging. The present case reports a fourteen-year-old boy with multiple central GCGJ and no obvious syndromic trait.

An incidental radiolucent lesion involving the angle of the mandible
A 58-year-old white female was referred to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon for evaluation of a soft tissue lesion on the left lower lip with a clinical impression of mucocele. At the time of the appointment, the lesion had significantly decreased in size. The clinical diagnosis of a resolving mucocele was established and the patient decided to monitor the lesion. Extra-oral and intra-oral examination failed to reveal any significant asymmetry or mass effect besides the referred area on the lower lip.

Review of the studies on the relationship and treatment of anterior disk displacement and dentofacial deformity in adolescents
Anterior disk displacement (ADD) is a common type of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) internal derangement. In adolescents, the relationship between ADD and dentofacial deformities are brought into focus. Whether treatment is needed, or what kind of treatment are effective are still without a consensus. From the literature review, the consequences of ADD without treatment and the effect on disk repositioning were summarized. The results showed that after ADD, condylar height was prone to reduce that may lead to or aggravate dentofacial deformities in adolescents.
