Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a relatively rare tumor of epithelial cell origin. Palatal minor salivary glands are the most commonly affected locations followed by parotid, and submandibular glands. Bone lesions are rare. The mandible is more commonly involved than the maxilla. A 36-year-old woman presented with a painless swelling in the right maxilla, resulting in a marked facial asymmetry. Intraorally, a swelling affecting gingiva and crossing the midline of the hard palate was observed. ...
Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a deep fungal infection caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. PCM is endemic and acquired exclusively in Latin America, with most cases reported in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela. Objective: To establish a clinical profile of the patients with PCM. Study Design: The authors analyzed retrospectively 94 clinical files of patients with PCM attended at a university stomatology service. Results: Of these patients, 91% were male and 8.5% female, 94.6% wer...
Benign fibrous histiocytoma (BFH) is a mesenchymal tumor usually constituted of spindle and epithelioid cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone and soft tissues. Histopathologically, it reveals 2 types of cells, fibroblasts and histiocytes, arranged in storiform pattern and interlacing fascicles without nuclear pleomorphism, necrosis, and low mitotic activity. The granular cell variant of BFH is extremely rare. A 64-year-old woman was referred presenting an osteolytic lesion in the anterio...
Plasma cell cheilitis (PCC) is an unusual benign plasma cell proliferative disease of an unknown etiology that clinically presents as erythematous-violaceous plaques, ulcerations, or eruptions often affecting the lower lip. PCC is known to respond poorly to corticosteroid treatment. A 43-year-old male presented with multiple painful hemorrhagic crusts on the lower lip that had developed over 1 month. An incisional biopsy was performed and microscopy showed a bandlike inflammatory cell infiltrati...
Literature review was carried out and found 30 cases. According to the data found, the most affected sex is female at 35 ± 16.4 years, with location in the maxilla. A 33-year-old woman was diagnosed as having florid osseous dysplasia through radiographic examinations. Five years later, she was referred, exhibiting an expansive lesion of the mandibular anterior region. The intraoral examination revealed an expansion in the vestibular and lingual cortical bones, and the teeth showed displacement w...
Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) is a low-grade salivary gland malignant neoplasm composed of neoplastic cells with clear cytoplasm, with or without hyalinized stroma, and presenting a squamoid phenotype. CCC commonly affects the palate and tongue. A 49-year-old female patient presented an uncomfortable swelling on the hard palate with 10 years of evolution. According to the patient, 2 previous biopsies presented inconclusive diagnosis. Intraorally, there was a swelling with ulcerated surface on the r...
Proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) is a potentially malignant disorder of unknown etiology and has a progressive and multifocal behavior. Characteristically, PVL presents with high rates of recurrence and malignant transformation to squamous cell carcinoma or verrucous carcinoma. We reported 3 cases that initially presented as oral lichenoid lesions spread by the oral mucosa and the microscopic analysis in all cases revealed epithelial hyperplasia and lymphohistiocytic infiltrate in a sub...
: Ecstasy is an illicit drug that has been increasingly abused by young people. This synthetic drug has both stimulant and hallucinogenic effects and is usually consumed in a tablet. The side effects of ecstasy use include nausea, muscle cramping, fever, and symptoms mostly linked to muscular tension including jaw pain, facial pain, and headaches. There are few studies assessing the ecstasy effects on the oral mucosa, both clinically and histopathologically. The authors report 2 young women (22-...

Abstract Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic immune-mediated mucocutaneous disorder predominantly in white women after the fifth decade of life, rarely affecting children. Symptomatic OLP is usually treated with systemic and/or topical corticosteroids, but its prolonged use may cause several adverse effects. An eight-year-old girl presented bilateral white reticular plaques associated with atrophic areas involving the buccal and labial mucosa, and tongue dorsal surface with burning complaining...
