Expression and Significance of TWSG1 in Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.173
Synopsis: 
The study aimed to determine the expression and significance of Triple Wide Straight Grooves 1 (TWSG1) in craniofacial fibrous dysplasia (FD). Results showed that the over-expression of TWSG1 is a vital biological marker in the prognosis of FD.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study aims to determine the expression and significance of Triple Wide Straight Grooves 1 (TWSG1) in craniofacial fibrous dysplasia (FD).

Methods: TWSG1 expression was examined in specimens obtained from 44 patients with FD by immunohistochemistry.

Fibroosseous Lesions of the Craniofacial Region: A 14 Year Experience

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.150
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. Retrospective survey of the records of all patients with histopathological diagnosis of fibro-osseous lesion.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: 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. 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.

Prosthetic Reconstruction after Surgical Resection of Fibrous Dysplasia of the Maxillary and Palatine Bone

Issue: 
Pages: 
299–301


ABSTRACT

Fibrous dysplasia is a rare disorder of the bone. It is seen in two main forms of presentation: monostotic and the polyostotic. A case of monostotic fibrous dysplasia of the maxillary and palatine bones in a 22-year old man who received prosthetic reconstruction is presented with a review of the literature.
