In a scenario where there is an increased incidence of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in younger age groups, the diagnosis of pseudo-malignant lesions that mimic the histopathology of a moderate or even high-grade carcinoma becomes imperative for oral pathologists. Though paediatric malignancies such as melanomas and thyroid carcinomas and even OSCCs have been reported in young children, they are rare in the pre-pubertal age group. Melanocytic naevi such as Spitz naevi (SNs) or atypical SNs is, however, more common in this age group and could create some difficulty in diagnosis due to its histological variations that could mimic a malignancy...

BACKGROUND: Ameloblastoma is one of the major odontogenic neoplasms with an invasive and recurrence potential. Its tumourigenesis and proliferative capacity can be attributed to the activation or inactivation of certain molecular signalling pathways. Hippo signalling pathway is known to regulate diverse physiological processes related to mitosis and organ growth and is an emerging tumour suppressor pathway, the dysfunction of which is implicated in various diseases including cancers. Yes-associated protein1 (YAP) and transcriptional coactivator with PDZ-binding motif (TAZ) are the downstream effectors in the Hippo cascade, which on nuclear activation leads to cellular proliferation in various tumours...

Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS) is a rare entity found in the oral cavity which involves the mandible in only 3% of all UPS bone lesions. The correlation of the clinical presentation of the neoplasm with the histopathological and immunohistochemistry findings is very important for appropriate diagnosis. Its incidence in membranous bone like mandible is rare. According to our literature search in the PubMed database, there are only four reported cases from India some of which does not have any immunohistochemistry findings to confirm the diagnosis...

REVIEW
Gopikrishnan Vijayakumar, Mala Kamboj, Anjali Narwal, Gitika Sharma
c-KIT is an important diagnostic marker in salivary gland tumours and is expressed in most adenoid cystic carcinomas. Histologically similar salivary gland tumours with variable immunohistochemical expression for c-KIT pose a challenge and make diagnostic reliability ambivalent. An electronic search was performed in MEDLINE by PubMed, Google Scholar, Scopus, Trip, Cochrane Library, and EMBASE up to 31 December 2023, without period restriction. The articles that investigated CD117 or c-KIT in salivary gland tumours were included for review...

Sclerosing odontogenic carcinoma (SOC) was first described by Koutlas et al . in 2008. Despite its inclusion in the World Health Organization (WHO) as a distinct entity, it is a tumour that remains poorly defined in the literature, with only 10 reported cases to date. The mandibular premolar and molar region is more commonly affected compared to the maxilla. In the maxilla, the anterior and the molar regions are most commonly affected. This article describes a case report of a Sclerosing Odontogenic Carcinoma in a 50 year old male patient in the mandibular region...

AIM: The aim of the study is to evaluate the expression of S100A7 levels in saliva of oral sub-mucous fibrosis, oral leukoplakia patients, and healthy control. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised of saliva samples from 15 patients each with clinically diagnosed oral sub-mucous fibrosis, oral leukoplakia, and healthy control. Salivary S100A7 levels were estimated using Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS. The significance level is fixed at 5% (α = 0...

CONTEXT: Glucose uptake may be considered the rate-limiting step for the growth and metabolism of the cancer cell. Studies on GLUT1 have shown that GLUT1 is involved in cell survival and proliferation in both healthy and pathological circumstances. GLUT1 expression is regarded as one of the crucial elements in the development of local aggressiveness, tumour invasiveness, and metastasis, particularly in malignant tumours. The role of glut1 in odontogenic cysts and tumours has remained uncertain...

Epidermoid cysts (ECs) are usually small, benign, keratin-filled cysts, can be congenital or acquired and encountered anywhere in the body. EC and dermoid cyst constitute approximately 7% of all cysts in the head and neck region and tend to occur in areas of embryonic fusion. Neck masses are commonly present in children, and there is often a diagnostic dilemma clinically with common differential diagnoses of this region such as thyroglossal cyst, pre-tracheal lymph nodes, thyroid mass, EC and dermoid cyst. EC is mostly present in middle-aged males, and here, we are going to present an EC of the midline neck in an 8-year-old girl, which is not common...

BACKGROUND: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a prevalent malignancy with significant morbidity and mortality. Identifying potential premalignant lesions is crucial for early detection and effective management. Lichen planus (LP), a chronic inflammatory disorder has been associated with an increased risk of developing OSCC. This study aimed to assess the diagnostic importance of p16 and p53 expression in identifying LP as a potential premalignant lesion for OSCC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted on archived tissue samples from patients diagnosed with LP ( n = 80) and OSCC ( n = 60) between 2017 and 2022...

RATIONALE: Low-grade intraductal carcinoma (LG-IC), is a rare malignant tumour of the salivary glands which has a very good prognosis and must be differentiated from the other types of salivary gland malignant tumours, which have a totally different behaviour and a worse prognosis. PATIENT CONCERNS: A case is presented of a 52-year-old woman who was first diagnosed and treated in another clinic in 2019 for an LG-IC in the left submandibular gland space. Two years later, she was admitted to our department with a new lesion, this time in the upper jaw lip on the left side, which also turned out to be LG-IC...

BACKGROUND: Gutka chewing is the most common deleterious oral habit prevalent in the geographical distribution of the Indian subcontinent. Gutka leads to the production of numerous free radicals, which causes oxidative stress in regional oral tissues. Oxidative stress brings about the oxidation of guanine bases of DNA that generates 8-OHdG as its main byproduct. The presence of 8-OHdG can be evaluated not only in tissue but also in saliva, blood and urine. The availability of 8-OHdG in these samples is quite documented...

This study aims to comprehensively analyse the clinical and pathological features of PA by examining the characteristics of the tumour, including its histological structure and immunohistochemical profile. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Over 8 years, beginning in October 2015 and ending in October 2023, an exhaustive retrospective study was conducted in the Department of Pathology, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, Manipal University, Karnataka, India...

BACKGROUND: The Bellary district in Karnataka, rich in mineral resources, is a major mining industry, but prolonged exposure to mining can lead to health hazards. The study aims to assess the genotoxic impact of mining pollutants on mine workers using the micro-nucleus (MN) assay. SETTING AND DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 250 individuals (198 males and 52 females) working in mining areas were examined, and their oral findings were recorded in a proforma...
