    ABSTRACT: A 33-year-old lady was referred to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of Taleghani hospital in 2008. She complained of firm swelling on the left side of her face with toothache, lacrimation, and nasal stiffness. There was a large mass in the left maxillary sinus with extension to the orbital floor, nasal bone, ethmoid sinus, and infratemporal fossa. The incisional biopsy revealed a neurofibroma of the maxilla. She underwent hemimaxillectomy and simultaneous reconstruction with temporalis-coronoid flap for orbital floor reconstruction. After 2 months' follow-up with no complication, she complained of left globe upward movement during gum chewing. The orbital and visual examinations were otherwise normal. This unusual complication has continued for 4 years with no resolution, although the patient does not worry about it any more.

    ABSTRACT: PURPOSE: The high rate of p16 gene alterations in malignant neoplasms suggests the important effect of this tumor-suppressor gene mutation on the malignant behavior of tumoral lesions. The present study investigated the possible methylation of the p16 tumor in ameloblastic carcinoma, ameloblastoma, and dental follicles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighteen samples of ameloblastic carcinoma, ameloblastoma, and dental follicles of mandibular impacted third molar were selected from available documents in the archives of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Taleghani Hospital and the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. After confirming the initial diagnosis, 6-μm sections were used for DNA extraction. A CpG island methylation of p16 was identified by polymerase chain reaction. RESULTS: Although CpG methylation of p16 was observed in all ameloblastic carcinoma samples, only 1 ameloblastoma specimen exhibited the mutation. The mutation was not detected in other ameloblastoma specimens or in any dental follicle sample. CONCLUSIONS: The p16 alteration might play a role in the malignant progression of ameloblastic carcinoma. It is worth mentioning that ameloblastoma can be further differentiated from ameloblastic carcinoma based on molecular observations.

    ABSTRACT: Ameloblastic carcinoma (AC) is a rare malignant epithelial odontogenic tumor that histologically retains the features of ameloblastic differentiation and exhibits cytological features of malignancy in the primary or recurrent tumor. It may develop within a preexisting ameloblastoma or arise de novo or from an odontogenic cyst. Epidemiological evidence shows that human cancer is generally caused by genotoxic factors, genes involved in the susceptibility of cancer, including those involved in metabolism or detoxification of genotoxic environment and those controlling DNA replication. Nowadays, gene polymorphism has an important role in development of malignant tumor. We report a case series study of ameloblastic carcinoma and ameloblastoma to show the role of PKM2 and MAPK8IP2 polymorphisms in these tumors. The DNA was extracted separately from specimens in paraffin sections of the tumor. Polymorphism of these genes was determined by PCR-RFLP (Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction fragment length polymorphism) method. The allele distributions of all samples were in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. The genotype and allele distribution in these genes were not statistically different between patients and controls.

    ABSTRACT: Mandibular defects may result from many conditions such as trauma, inflammatory diseases and tumors. There are rare cases reported in the literature that have demonstrated spontaneous bone regeneration after resection of the mandible. Several factors such as age, preservation of the periosteum and genetics seem to influence spontaneous bone regeneration capacity in individuals. Evaluation of these factors may lead to a better understanding of the mechanism of spontaneous bone regeneration and also help to create new methods for bone reconstruction. The purpose of this article was to describe the spontaneous regeneration of the hemi-mandible with a well shaped condyle and coronoid after resecting a mandibular pathologic lesion in a young man.
