Large pediatric maxillary dentigerous cysts presenting with sinonasal and orbital symptoms: A case series

April 30, 2017  |  Shakil Ahmed Nagori, MDS; Anson Jose, MDS; Ongkila Bhutia, MDS; Ajoy Roychoudhury, MDS

Abstract

Dentigerous cysts are benign odontogenic cysts associated with the crowns of unerupted, embedded, or impacted teeth. Most of them are associated with mandibular third molars, followed by maxillary third molars and canines. They are usually asymptomatic, and rarely do they grow...

Breast cancer metastases to the head and neck: Case series and literature review

March 24, 2017  |  Jeremiah C. Tracy, MD; Nicholas R. Mildenhall, MD; Richard O. Wein, MD; Miriam A. O'Leary, MD

Abstract

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and is the second most common cause of cancer-related death. Despite the relatively high prevalence of this disease, breast cancer manifestations in the head and neck are relatively rare. Supraclavicular lymphadenopathy and bony...

Cervical metastasis in squamous cell carcinoma of the hard palate and maxillary alveolus

October 25, 2016  |  Yekaterina Koshkareva, MD; Jeffrey C. Liu, MD; Miriam Lango, MD; Thomas Galloway, MD; John P. Gaughan, PhD; John A. Ridge, MD, PhD

Abstract

We conducted a retrospective study to determine the incidence and treatment outcomes of neck metastases in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the hard palate and/or maxillary alveolus after surgical excision of the primary tumor. We also sought to identify any risk...

Maxillary myxoma: A case report and review

June 5, 2015  |  Matthew P. Connor, MD, Capt.; Michael Neilson, DMD, Maj.; Cecelia E. Schmalbach, MD

Abstract

An odontogenic myxoma is a rare, benign tumor that is found almost exclusively in the facial bones, usually the mandible. The diagnosis poses a challenge because its features overlap with those of other benign and malignant neoplasms. We present an unusual case of odontogenic...

Keratocystic odontogenic tumor

Bite-wing or orthopantomograph images reveal a well-defined, unilocular radiolucency with a smooth border, showing minimal bone expansion and even cortication.

Acantholytic squamous cell carcinoma of the maxilla: Unusual location and aggressive behavior of a rare histologic variant

September 19, 2013  |  Ozan Bagis Ozgursoy, MD; Ozden Tulunay, MD; Sami Engin Muz, MD; Gaffar Aslan, MD; Babur Kucuk, MD

Abstract

Acantholytic squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC) of the mucosal membranes has been documented sporadically. The highly aggressive behavior of a mucosal ASCC arising in the oral cavity has been recently reported. To the best of our knowledge, only 1 autopsy case of maxillary ASCC...

Osteosarcoma

July 22, 2013  |  Lester D.R. Thompson, MD

Osteosarcoma affects the mandible and the maxilla differently, with mandibular tumors tending to arise from the body of the mandible while maxillary tumors arise from the alveolar ridge and sinus.

Recurrent Pindborg tumor of the maxilla: A case report and review of the literature

February 25, 2013  |  Gangadhara Somayaji, MS(ENT); Aroor Rajeshwary, MS(ENT); Sullia Ramesh, MDS; Sullia Dinesh, MDS

Abstract

We report a case of recurrent Pindborg tumor (calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor) of the maxilla. The patient was a 34-year-old woman who had been previously diagnosed with Pindborg tumor and treated with curettage. She was subsequently referred to us for evaluation of...

Unusual maxillary chondrosarcoma

September 7, 2012  |  Daniel O. Rosenblatt, MD; Rosa B. Lipin, MD; Enrique Palacios, MD, FACR; Paul Friedlander, MD; Harold Neitzschman, MD, FACR

Chondrosarcomas can be distinguished from osteosarcomas because they have the distinction of producing chondroid (cartilaginous matrix) but not osteoid. When they occur in the head and neck, they usually are found in the anterior maxilla and sinonasal structures 

Ectopic canine associated with a dentigerous cyst in the maxilla

June 14, 2011  |  Jagdeep S. Thakur, MS, Narinder K. Mohindroo, MS, DLO, Dev R. Sharma, MS, Ravinder S. Minhas, MS, DLO, and Anamika Thakur, MD

Abstract

Ectopic eruption of a tooth is common in the dental arch, palate, and nose, but it is rare in the maxillary antrum. We present the case of a 35-year-old man with an ectopic canine and an associated dentigerous cyst in the maxillary sinus that masqueraded as an antrochoanal...

Primary intraosseous carcinoma of the anterior maxilla: An unusual case and review of the literature

May 1, 2011  |  Nadia Mohyuddin, MD and Mike Yao, MD

Abstract

Primary intraosseous carcinoma of the head and neck is rare, and lesions isolated to the anterior maxilla are obviously even more rare. The diagnosis of intraosseous carcinoma can be difficult, and it must be based on strict criteria. We report the case of a 40-year-old man who...
