We report two sporadic cases with a previously undescribed skeletal dysplasia lethal in the neonatal period. The syndrome is characterized clinically by striking rhizomelic shortness of the limbs and radiographically by absence or hypoplasia of the humeri, hypoplastic vertebrae, absent fibulae and ossification in only the distal phalanges of the ...

A case of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome in which one colonic polyp showed many foci of glandular dysplasia is reported. Peutz-Jeghers polyps are considered to be hamartomatous, and their malignant potential has been considered doubtful. This case is valuable because foci of glandular dysplasia existed within hyperplastic glands. Glands of Peutz-Jeghers polyps ...

While accessory ossicles are relatively common in the feet, major developmental chondro-osseous variations in otherwise normal feet appear to be extremely unusual. The "bifid os calcis" has been reported infrequently since its first description by Sever in 1930. The majority of cases are fortuitously diagnosed, usually in children three years ...

We present clinical, laboratory, radiologic, genetic, and pathologic findings in a 49-year-old man with mixed-sclerosing-bone-dystrophy (MSBD), review the six cases previously reported as "MSBD", and examine the nosology of this rare bone dysplasia. Our asymptomatic patient showed radiographic changes consistent with osteopoikilosis, osteopathia striata, and melorheostosis and had widespread osteosclerosis ...

Symmetrical gingival fibromatosis, a rare and unusual form of idiopathic gingival fibrous hyperplasia, has recently been identified as a distinct clinical entity. The clinical and histologic features of a case of this disorder are presented. The relationship of this clinical entity to generalized gingival fibromatosis is considered, and the histologic ...

A retrospective review of 128 cases of dysplasia-subluxation of the hip in 123 patients seen and initially treated under 1 year of age was conducted to determine the incidence of avascular necrosis and its potential relationship to treatment. Not a single case of avascular necrosis was uncovered utilizing a semi-rigid ...

A child with Werner's mesomelic dysplasia is presented. She has five fingers on each hand with absent thumbs and seven toes on each foot. There is posterior dislocation at the knees and mild tibial dysplasia. The child also has a ventricular septal defect (VSD) and Hirschsprung's disease. This is the ...

Chondroectodermal dysplasia is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by short extremities, short stature, polydactyly, and nail hypoplasia. Dental abnormalities, congenital heart defects, and thoracic abnormalities impending respiration are seen in many patients. Virtually all previous reports of the classic disorder have been in Caucasians. In the following case report, ...

A case of congenital ear dysplasia, combined with cleft palate and anomalies of the cervical spine and eyes, is described. The case belongs to the group of cervico-ocular-auditory dysplasias (Klippel-Feil syndrome). A strange feature in our case was the co-existence of conductive hypakousia in the right ear, due to congenital ...
González J R - - 1980
The case of a 2-year-old Puerto Rican boy is presented. Clinical and histologic features are detailed because he showed peculiar jet black patches of pigmentation on the fingers of the right hand. This case, except for the lack of progression of the disease after a 2-year period of follow-up, shows ...

Reports have appeared in the public press suggesting that dust from fibrous glass may be responsible for causing a form of lung disease in workers similar to that produced by asbestos. These reports are attributed to information about a case of pneumoconiosis presented at a meeting held under the auspices ...
Grøndalen J - - 1979
The terms arthrosis, arthritis, osteochondrosis, osteochondritis dissecans and dysplasia are defined. A short review of the pathological anatomical changes seen in primary and secondary arthrosis is given, and the anatomy of the elbow is briefly described. The literature concerning elbow lesions leading to arthrosis in young, rapidly growing dogs is ...

The case presented here represents an aggressive form of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. Because of lack of evidence to substantiate precocious puberty and abnormal pigmentation, Albright syndrome cannot be established. Because of the nature of this disease, its clinical course and prognosis are unpredictable. However, it is believed that continued growth ...

Two cases of inflammatory fibrous histiocytoma are presented, one occupying the pleural space, and the other the retroperitoneum. One of the cases was studied with the electron microscope and confirmed the histiocytic and xanthomatous nature of the lesion. It is suggested that the term xanthogranuloma be replaced by fibrous histiocytoma, ...
Meister P - - 1978
Various salient histological features were rated from + to +++ in a semiquantitative evaluation of a series of 155 cases of fibrous histiocytoma. Relations between individual histological features, as well as between histological findings, localisation and size of lesions, and age or sex of the patient were tested statistically. Most ...

The authors report the results obtained with arthroprostheses without cement. In this preliminary report they examine sixteen cases treated with Sbarbaro's arthroprosthesis from 1972 to 1976, at the Orthopaedic Division of the Specialized Regional Hospital, Udine. They stress the efficacy of this kind of arthroprosthesis, which can be used in ...

Dentin dyslasia is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary variant of dentinogenesis imperfecta. The primary defect is mesodermal and involves the dentin. Two types (Type I and Type II) of dentin dysplasia have been described previously. The current case presents radiographic findings which include characteristics common to both types. It is ...

A case of fibrous dysplasia of the mandible has been presented in which further diagnostic procedures showed the presence of a second and potentially more dangerous lesion. The literature was reviewed with the purpose of bringing attention to the still confused state of fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws and skeleton. ...

Four cases of oculodentodigital dysplasia are reported. Three cases are from the same family, father and two daughers. These three cases have the characteristics typical of this disorder: narrow nose, hypoplastic alae nasi, microphthalmia, defects of the teeth, syndactylyl of the IV and V fingers, and skeletal anomalies. The fourth ...

Neurofibromatosis is seen in association with elephantiasis neuromatosa and overgrowth of abnormal bones, but rarely with subperiosteal hemorrhage. This is a secondary finding after severe or minor trauma to the periosteum, which is abnormally loose from mesodermal dysplasia. The clinical, plain radiographic, and angiographic findings of 2 cases of massive ...

The histologic material of 500 leukoplakia patients was analyzed in order to define the characteristics of epithelial dysplasia and to correlate the findings with the clinical data. Epithelial dysplasia was found in 120 cases (24 per cent) and was graded as mild, moderate, or severe. The occurrence of dysplasia was ...

This report documents a case of dentin dysplasia Type I in a 17-year-old boy and two members of his family. The clinical, radiographic, histologic, and ultrastructural findings indicate that this condition is distinct from other heritable defects of dentin. The entity is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait and is ...

The radiographic distribution of pulmonary abnormalities in bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in all previously reported cases has been bilateral and generalized. The authors studied 11 premature infants who had BPD that was primarily unilateral. The striking feature in each of these patients was the occurrence of an episode of prolonged unilateral ...

A case of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia of the craniofacial type is presented, together with substantial evidence that this condition had a genetic basis in this patient. A review of the literature indicates that there is absolutely no previous evidence of a genetic basis to this condition. The possibility that the ...
