KOL-Index: 39 BACKGROUND: Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) includes a range of variants frequently having oral, particularly gingival, lesions. It has been suggested that MMP exclusively involving the oral cavity could be a distinct subset, but the immunological status of patients with predominantly oral lesions has received little attention. METHODS: Indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) on normal human skin ...

KOL-Index: 37 The aim of this prospective pilot study was to evaluate the efficiency of an oral hygiene protocol, in combination with a solution of sodium iodide associated to salicylic acid (SISA), in patients affected by desquamative gingivitis (DG). Twenty patients not totally responding to conventional topical therapies, were selected. They received oral hygiene instructions with non-surgical ...

KOL-Index: 35 BACKGROUND: Oral lichen planus (OLP) is considered an oral potentially malignant disorder. The aim of our study was to estimate the risk for oral cancer in patients diagnosed with OLP. METHODS: A population-based cohort study between January 1988 and December 2020 at one hospital in Northern Italy was performed. The primary endpoint of the study was that of the histopathological diagnosis of ...

KOL-Index: 35 BackgroundSeveral studies in the past have investigated the expression of micro RNAs (miRNAs) in saliva as potential biomarkers. Since miRNAs associated with extracellular vesicles (EVs) are known to be protected from enzymatic degradation, we evaluated whether salivary EVs from patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) were enriched with specific subsets of miRNAs.MethodsOSCC ...

KOL-Index: 33 Background. Chronic graft versus host disease (cGVHD) is a complication following bone marrow transplantation. The oral lesions are difficult to control with a systemic pharmacological therapy. Case Description. A 63-year-old female patient, who underwent an allogeniec transplantation for acute myeloid leukemia, developed a chronic oral and cutaneous GVHD. The patient was treated with ...

KOL-Index: 32 Angular cheilitis (AC) is a clinical entity first described in the XIX century, characterized by erythema, rhagades, ulcerations, and crusting of one or both lip commissures and perilabial skin, responsible of an unpleasant and painful discomfort. Aim of this manuscript was to examine and evaluate the therapeutic options actually available for AC. Despite antifungals being the first-line ...

KOL-Index: 29 OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the degree and causes of underdiagnosis of incisional biopsy in oral potentially malignant lesions (PML). DESIGN: Cross-sectional retrospective study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All pathology slides (incisional biopsy and resection specimen) from 46 patients with oral PML were reviewed and scored blind. The provisional diagnosis was considered in order to provide ...

KOL-Index: 28 BACKGROUND: Presence of epithelial desquamation, erythema, and erosions on gingival tissue is usually described in the literature as desquamative gingivitis (DG). A wide range of autoimmune/dermatologic disorders can manifest as DG, although the two more common are oral lichen planus and mucous membrane pemphigoid. The aim of this study is to investigate prevalence of 11 periodontopathogenic ...

KOL-Index: 27 Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a common premalignant chronic inflammatory disorder. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides a real-time, non-invasive, and in-situ optical signature using light of varying wavelengths to examine tissue. Aim of the present study was to assess the possible role of OCT as diagnostic tool for atrophic-erosive OLP by examining OCT scans of healthy buccal mucosa, ...

KOL-Index: 24 BACKGROUND: Plasma cell gingivitis (PCG) is a rare, benign inflammatory condition of unclear etiology with no definitive standard of care ever reported to our knowledge. The aim of this case series is to ascertain the clinical efficacy of professional oral hygiene and periodontal therapy in younger individuals with a histologically confirmed diagnosis of PCG. METHODS: All patients received ...
