Synopsis: 
Fibro-osseous lesion (FOL) is a broad term for a diverse group of jaw and craniofacial disorders that are often painless but grow progressively if uncontrolled. In this study, retrospective survey of the records of all patients with histopathological diagnosis of fibro-osseous lesion was undertaken.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Fibro-osseous lesion is a broad term for a diverse group of jaw and craniofacial disorders that are often painless, but grow progressively, if uncontrolled. They are characterized by the replacement of normal bone by fibrous connective tissue matrix displaying varying degrees of mineralization in the form of woven bone or cementum-like structures.

A Thirteen-year Retrospective Analysis of 179 Odontogenic Tumours in a Nigerian Tertiary Healthcare Facility

Pages: 
233-7
Synopsis: 
Odontogenic tumours are derived from epithelial and mesenchymal elements that are part of the tooth-forming apparatus. A retrospective study of patients with a histopathologic diagnosis of orofacial tumours was conducted. Odontogenic tumours constituted 179 (15.3%) cases out of a total of 1170 orofacial tumours.

ABSTRACT

Background: Tumours of odontogenic origin (OTs) resulting from epithelial and mesenchymal elements that are part of the tooth-forming apparatus must be considered as a differential diagnosis when analysing jaw lesions. They may be cystic, myxomatous or sometimes have a mixture of cystic and solid areas.
