An uncommon case of primary parotid tuberculosis in a pediatric patient
AbstractTuberculosis (TB) is one of the ancient chronic diseases of humanity. Nowadays, it still presents as a common health problem in several developing countries. Although the lungs are the main site of involvement, the disease may affect other areas of the body, including the maxillofacial region. Extrapulmonary TB in the maxillofacial region is very rare and may occur in any tissues in this area, whether of primary or secondary origin. The occurrence of TB in major salivary glands is uncommon, with few cases described in the literature and, when manifested, it presents as a slow ‐growing mass that is indistinguishab...

Metastatic Lesions in the Mandible; A Case Series and Literature Review
ConclusionMetastatic spread to the oral cavity is rare and is usually representative of wide ‐spread oncological disease. Metastatic lesions should be included in the differential diagnosis of any patient presenting with paraesthesia of unknown aetiology. The dental practitioner may be the first clinician to identify such lesions following clinical examination and radiographic investigati on. (Source: Oral Surgery)

Orofacial pain: care pathways, consequences and costs
AbstractOrofacial pain is known to be a complex biopsychosocial phenomenon. It can be both acute and or persistent (previously known as ‘chronic’, lasting ≥3 months). In its acute form it most commonly presents as odontogenic pain arising from the dental pulp or supporting structures of the teeth. Its persistent form can be related to several different structures. This special issue of Oral Surgery covers all of the main condi tions presenting with orofacial pain as a symptom or sign and also includes common co‐morbidities such as bruxism and sleep disorders.

Sinonasal papilloma: diagnosis following dental pain
AbstractSinonasal papillomas (SPs) are benign neoplasms that arise within the nasal cavity. Diagnosis may be challenging, given the often non ‐specific symptoms including nasal obstruction, headaches and rhinorrhoea. SPs can be locally destructive, have a high tendency to reoccur and may be associated with transformation to squamous cell carcinoma. Management, therefore often, involves surgical excision and careful follow‐up. (Source: Oral Surgery)

Counselling by general dental practitioners for coronectomy before referral – is it always appropriate?

TMJ diode surgical laser approach in a contemporary treatment of tempomandibular joint pathologies. A Technical Note
AbstractThe surgical excision can be performed either with conventional methods such as scalpel blade, electrocautery or lasers. Scalpels have been the instrument of choice for maxillofacial soft tissue procedures due to their ease of use, precise cutting ability, and favorable wound healing, but the disadvantages include lack of hemostasis of the surgical field and increased postoperative pain and edema. Diode laser systems are suggested as an alternative to scalpel surgery on surgeries involving oral tissues. (Source: Oral Surgery)

Atypical case of a frontal lobe meningioma masquerading as temporomandibular joint pain
AbstractThe management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease is at present not fully understood and there are many associated controversies. This is complicated by other possibilities of pain in that region such as trigeminal neuralgia, giant cell arteritis and meningiomas. In this case report, we describe a 69 year old female patient who presented with an extra ‐axial meningioma masquerading as a TMJ disorder and was mistakenly treated as such until further investigations were conducted. This case illustrates the importance for clinicians to take a thorough history and to consider possible intracranial and extracrani...

ConclusionThis review of implant data studies confirms that placing dental implants into maxillary sinuses with a graftless approach yields comparable implant survival to those cases that are grafted. This suggests that there is scope to simplify treatment protocols, decrease the risk of infection whilst maintaining treatment success and increase patient acceptance of sinus lift procedures.

An unusual case of cervical sialocele after trauma in the parotid gland
AbstractSalivary gland trauma is uncommon and injuries to parotid duct are no easily diagnosed. Occasionally, these mechanisms may cause damage to the parotid duct and/or parenchyma, favoring the accumulation of salivary secretion in the adjacent soft tissue, in a process known as sialocele or salivary pseudocyst1. Sialocele is characterized by asymptomatic soft mobile swelling, and fluctuant, which, if left untreated, may rupture and evolve into a salivary fistula2. Diagnosis is made by fine ‐needle aspiration cytology, sialography, contrast CT, and MRI1,2. (Source: Oral Surgery)

Rapid desensitisation for antibiotic anaphylaxis prior to surgical removal of teeth
AbstractSerious drug reactions occur in 6.7% of hospitalized patients and are the 4th to 6th leading cause of death in such patients. Anaphylaxis or drug ‐induced Type I hypersensitivity reactions result from the release of mediators from IgE‐sensitized mast cells and basophils. The incidence of anaphylaxis during anaesthesia ranges from 1 in 10000 to 1 in 20000. The most common drug‐related causes of intraoperative anaphylaxis are muscle relax ants and antibiotics. Penicillins and cephalosporins account for about 70% of antibiotic perioperative anaphylaxis. (Source: Oral Surgery)

Osteochondroma rarely occurs in the buccal and maxillofacial region, and the signs and symptoms vary according to the size and location of the tumor. In cases that involves the condyle of the mandible, the commonly recommended management is the radical resection of the tumor including the condyle, aiming to reestablish aesthetics and function.
