ABSTRACT: This report presents a case of osseous choristoma in the submandibular region of a 33-year-old female. Her chief complaint was painless swelling in the submandibular region. Panoramic radiography showed a well-defined, round, radiopaque lesion near the inferior border of the right mandibular angle. Coronal and sagittal tomographic images indicated a high-density area in the right submandibular region with no bony connection. The lesion was diagnosed as an osseous choristoma based on histopathological examination of the surgical specimen. A 1-year follow-up period was uneventful.Dentomaxillofacial Radiology 10/2009; 38(7):489-92. · 1.08 Impact Factor
Article: Diagnosis and treatment of mandibular extraoral sinus of periodontal origin in a 9-year-old boy: a case report.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Cutaneous sinus tract of dental origin is the commonest of the many types of sinus tracts that are formed on the face and neck. Cutaneous sinus tracts may originate from local chronic osteomyelitis (Garre's osteomyelitis). Although the etiological factor is usually periapical infection, they are seldom of periodontal origin. Conventional periapical and panoramic roentgenograms are generally insufficient for diagnosis and treatment planning of cutaneous sinus tracts of periodontal origin. In the present case, computed tomography was used for diagnosis, and osteomyelitis was managed by periodontal treatment.Journal of Indian Society of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry 01/2008; 26 Suppl 2:S76-8.
