Article: Primary malignant hemangioendothelioma of the gingiva: Report of a case and review of the literature[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Primary malignant tumors of vascular origin are exceedingly rare in the oral cavity. Consequently, knowledge of their clinical and pathologic features is scanty. The varied array of terms applied to malignant vascular tumors has only further confused the issue. This article presents a review of twenty examples of oral malignant vascular tumors, with a report of a single personally studied case. Specifically, this case presented as a soft-tissue gingival lesion which subsequently invaded bone and represents a malignant hemangioendothelioma.Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology.

ABSTRACT: Dentin dysplasia Type I is a rare hereditary disturbance in dentin formation characterized by teeth with short blunted roots, complete pulpal obliteration, periapical abscesses or cysts without an obvious causative factor, and spontaneous exfoliation. This report describes the clinical, radiographic, histologic, ultrastructural, and genetic features of dentin dysplasia Type I in a 17-year-old boy and discusses the features which separate it from dentin dysplasia Type II and dentinogenesis imperfecta.Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology.
