MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Oral Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Leiomyoma of the hard palate: a case report.
  • Leiomyoma is a benign smooth muscle tumor that is very rarely located in the oral cavity.
  • It is accepted that the smooth muscle giving rise to this tumor corresponds to the tunica media of the arteries.
  • The tumor can develop at any age, with no clear gender predilection, and typically manifests as a slow-growing, asymptomatic lesion.
  • The diagnosis is based on the histopathological study, with the use of specific staining techniques, including immunohistochemical markers.
  • We present the case of a 57-year-old male with a tumor located for the previous four months in the region of the hard palate, adjacent to the left upper premolars.
  • After surgical resection with safety margins, hematoxylin-eosin staining and immunohistochemical study confirmed the diagnosis of leiomyoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Pleomorphic adenoma of the palate.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma is a benign tumor of the salivary glands that has elements of both epithelial and mesenchymal tissues.
  • The tumor most commonly arises in the parotid or submandibular glands.
  • Infrequently, it may arise from the minor salivary glands and present as an intraoral mass over the palate or lip.
  • We report a patient with PA over the hard palate, which resembled common intraoral diseases like oral papilloma, squamous cell carcinoma and condyloma acuminate.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Malignant myoepithelioma of the palate: a case report with review of the clinicopathological characteristics.
  • A malignant myoepithelioma is one of the rarest salivary gland neoplasms which may either arise de novo or develop within a preexisting pleomorphic adenoma or benign myoepithelioma.
  • The parotid gland is the most common primary site and the palate the most common intra-oral site of occurrence.
  • Herein is present a case of a malignant myoepithelioma arising in the hard palate of a 79-year-old woman.
  • The patient underwent a wide local tumor resection.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Stomach Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Minor salivary gland carcinomas are uncommon but most often occur in the oral cavity, particularly the hard palate.
  • The frequency of benign tumors was 38.6% (n = 29) and malignant tumors 61.3% (n = 46).
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the most common histological type of benign tumor identified whereas mucoepidermoid carcinoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma were the most common malignant tumors.
  • The most common primary location of the tumors was the palate followed by the cheek.
  • A benign tumor usually presented as an asymptomatic swelling and ulceration, pain being more frequently associated with the malignant tumors.
  • This study shows that intraoral tumors of minor salivary glands vary widely in presentation, and should be taking into account by medical and dental practitioners in any differential diagnosis when assessing intraoral pathology.
  • Any lesion arising from the hard palate (the most common site in this series) should be considered as a possible minor salivary gland tumor.
  • Referral to a multidisciplinary head and neck clinic following diagnosis is strongly recommended.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Lipoma is a common tumor of soft tissue.
  • Its location on the oral mucosa is rare, representing 1% to 5% of benign oral tumors although it is the most mesenchymal tumor of the trunk and proximal por-tions of extremities.
  • The overlying epithelium is intact, and superficial blood vessels are usually evident over the tumor.
  • Other benign connective tissue lesions such as granular cell tumor, neurofibroma, traumatic fibroma and salivary gland lesions (mucocele and mixed tumor) might be included in differential diagnosis.
  • We present two cases of oral lipoma in unusual locations: one in junction of soft and hard palate and the other in tongue.

  • The differential diagnosis of OMEC includes numerous oncocytic/"oncocytoid" neoplasms.
  • Some are benign while others are aggressive.
  • Recent evidence suggests that p63 is a reliable marker in the diagnosis of conventional MEC but has not been explored in OMEC.
  • Most occurred in the parotid (9) with 1 each in the sublingual gland, hard palate and neck.
  • All 6 cases tested showed the majority of oncocytic cells staining with p63 in a diffuse pattern, demonstrating its utility in the diagnosis of OMEC.
  • In summary, OMEC behaves as a low-grade tumor, and is diffusely positive for p63, which may aid in its differential diagnosis.
