Multiple zemento-ossifizierende Fibrome der Kiefer: Der seltene Fall


Stergiou, G C; Zwahlen, R A; Grätz, K W (2007). Multiple zemento-ossifizierende Fibrome der Kiefer: Der seltene Fall. Schweizer Monatsschrift für Zahnmedizin SMfZ, 117(3):236-244.

Abstract

The cemento-ossifying fibromas (COF) of the jaws are well circumscribed, generally slow-growing, benign lesions which enlarge in an expansive manner. On occasion, they may reach a large size and may result in considerable deformity. The histological pattern of these lesions varies with the stages. In most reported cases ossifying and cemento-ossifying fibromas occur as a solitary lesion. Multiple occurrence of such lesions is rare. The term"cemento-ossifying fibroma"is used to describe fibrous lesions containing calcifications with strong similarity between bone and cementum. Although WHO and some authors regard the cementifying fibroma (CF) as an odontogenic tumor and consider ossifying fibroma (OF) separately as non-odontogenic neoplasm, there is general agreement that CF and OF represent only histologic variants of the same lesion. The case of a 36-year old woman with multiple cemento-ossifying fibromas of the mandible and maxilla demonstrates the diagnostic procedures and a possible therapeutic strategy for this rare lesion.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
