  • [Title] Rhabdomyosarcoma of the maxillary gingiva.
  • BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm of primitive mesenchyme exhibiting skeletal muscle differentiation.
  • METHODS: A 33-year-old woman presented with an erythematous gingival mass involving the anterior maxillary gingiva.
  • Many of the tumor cells exhibited abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm.
  • Immunohistochemical stains showed the tumor cells to be positive for desmin, myogenin, and myogenic differentiation 1 (MyoD1).
  • A diagnosis of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma was made.
  • Pain is a variable presenting symptom, and early lesions may be mistaken for benign neoplastic, inflammatory, or infectious processes.

  • The stomatologic examination showed a gingival tumefaction covered with a healthy mucous membrane, ovoid form and measuring 3 cm on its horizontal axis.
  • A curetting of the lesion was carried out and the anatomopathologic examination retained the diagnosis of desmoplastic ameloblastoma.
  • A radical surgical treatment is suggested for this tumour to avoid recurrency.

  • [Title] Oral ulcer as an exclusive sign of gastric cancer: report of a rare case.
  • BACKGROUND: The oral cavity is a rare but occasional target for metastases, which may masquerade as various benign and inflammatory lesions, and sometimes also be asymptomatic.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We here describe an uncommon case of a hard palate mucosa and gingival metastasis from gastric carcinoma that was originally diagnosed as a periodontal disease.
  • Histopathological examination of a biopsy of the lesion revealed a signet-ring cell carcinoma, and a subsequent biopsy of an ulcerated stomach lesion showed a poorly differentiated gastric carcinoma.
  • The patient underwent gastric resection but died of heart failure on the tenth postoperative day; a post-mortem examination revealed a residual bilateral ovarian infiltration by gastric carcinoma (Krukenberg's tumor).
  • CONCLUSION: An occult carcinoma of the stomach may rarely metastasise to the oral cavity even as a first and exclusive manifestation; it is important to bear this possibility in mind because such conditions may mimic a benign disease.

  • Differential diagnosis included benign and malignant mesenchymal neoplasms, salivary gland tumors, and reactive processes.
  • Microscopic analysis of both lesions revealed a spindle cell tumor with immunoreactivity for vimentin, muscle-specific actin, and specific smooth muscle isoform alpha-actin, rendering the diagnoses of myofibroma.
  • Myofibroma presents a wide range of differential diagnosis, including benign and malignant neoplasms.

  • The literature does not present any molecular analysis of the tumour characteristics.
  • The purpose of the present study was to compare benign (epulus) and malignant (cancer) gingival hyperplasias with regard to the activity of the genes of apoptosis, proliferation, and inflammation using RT-PCR.
  • The investigation involved 70 patients with epuli and 15 patients with gingival squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Each subject had specimens collected from the tumour, tissue margin (incision line), and healthy tissue.
  • Correlations have been disclosed between apoptosis and proliferation genes expression in giant cell epuli and high-differentiated gingival squamous cell carcinoma.
  • In RT-PCR molecular analysis, giant cell epulus shows characteristics of a neoplastic lesion, while other epulus types seem to be inflammatory tumours.

  • [Title] Aggressive pregnancy tumor mimicking a malignant neoplasm: a case report.
  • AIM: The aim of this report is to present the management of an aggressive, highly proliferative pregnancy tumor with clinical and radiographic characteristics highly suggestive of a malignant neoplasm.
  • BACKGROUND: Pregnancy tumor is a benign hyperplastic gingival lesion occurring during pregnancy that is indistinguishable from a pyogenic granuloma arising in nonpregnant females, or in males.
  • CASE DESCRIPTION: A 28-year-old woman at four months of gestation was referred for a massive gingival swelling (5.5 cm in greatest diameter) on the mandibular left side.
  • Advanced alveolar bone loss also was found beneath the lesion.
  • A malignant process was suspected, and an incisional biopsy revealed a pregnancy tumor.
  • SUMMARY: Pregnancy tumor represents an important differential diagnosis of oral masses and can behave in a very aggressive fashion, mimicking a malignant tumor.
  • CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: This lesion should always be included in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses in a pregnant woman even if the lesion is clinically very aggressive.

  • [Title] Biopsied gingival lesions in northern Jordanians: A retrospective analysis over 10 years.
  • The frequency and distribution of 183 consecutive cases of biopsied gingival lesions from northern Jordanians are presented here.
  • Neoplasms accounted for 9% of biopsies (7% benign, 3% malignant).
  • The most frequent neoplasm was peripheral ossifying fibroma.
  • The maximum number of benign neoplasms occurred in patients aged 20 to 39 years, and malignant neoplasms did not occur in patients younger than 30 years.
  • The frequency and distribution of gingival lesions in north Jordan are similar to those found in other countries.
  • Additional nationwide multicenter studies are needed to describe all aspects of epidemiology of gingival lesions in Jordan.

  • [Title] Myofibroma of the gingiva: report of a case.
  • Myofibroma is a benign mesenchymal neoplasm composed of myofibroblasts which has been described with different synonyms since the first report in 1951.
  • Awareness and recognition of this benign tumor is important to establish the correct diagnosis and avoid morbidity of unnecessary aggressive therapy.
  • This report describes a myofibroma of the gingiva in a 14 year old girl and is reported together with the conventional histologic, and immunohistochemical findings.
  • The tumor showed rapid increase in size and clinical features suggestive of malignancy.
  • However on histopathologic evaluation it was diagnosed as a benign neoplasm, and this diagnosis was supported by immunohistochemical markers.

  • [Title] Granular cell tumor: report of 8 intraoral cases.
  • Granular cell tumor (GCT) is an uncommon neoplasm of controversial origin that can appear in any corporal localization, including the orofacial region.
  • Although aggressive and malignant variants of this neoplasm have been described, most of GCTs are benign.
  • In spite of the amount of research, the etiology of this neoplasm remains unclear and its histogenesis and its possible muscular, connective or neural origin has been broadly debated.
  • The main clinicopathologic and diagnostic features of this neoplasm are reviewed and discussed.
