Trends in Incidence and Age Distribution of Oral Cavity and Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinomas, Kingston and St Andrew, Jamaica, 1978–2007

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.164
Pages: 
128–33
Synopsis: 
The incidence rates of tongue and tonsillar cancers have been decreasing in Jamaica but continue to predominate among older men. This is unlike data reported elsewhere, where rates have been increasing in young adults, and therefore warrants further study.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: Several countries have reported increasing incidence of oral cavity and oropharyngeal (OCOP) squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) over recent years, particularly among young men and primarily in tongue and tonsil subsites, attributed to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. This study examines trends in incidence and age distribution of OCOP SCC in Jamaica over a 30-year period.

A Foreign Body in Infant Palate: A Case Report

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.577

ABSTRACT

This report aims to discuss the occurrence and differential diagnosis in hard palate foreign bodies, in infants. We present the case of a 16- month-old girl who was found to have plastic part of a toy embedded in the hard palate as foreign body. The foreign body was extracted with care to avoid aspiration. The possibilities of misdiagnosis and airway aspiration were discussed. Great care was focused on prevention of airway aspiration.
