Nearly a century of speculation and experimentation has gone into trying to understand the mechanisms that establish the pattern of the differentiated heterodont dentition. Regionally differing qualitative (combinatorial) expression of regulatory genes appears to be involved in this process. Work by our laboratory and others shows that the six members of the mammalian Dlx family of homeobox genes are expressed (a) at multiple times during dental development, (b) differently at different stages, ...

: Lymphangiomas are hamartomas which often occur during childhood. Their classification is primarily size dependent and predicts their clinical course. Larger lesions can be life threatening, but for many patients with lymphangiomas, cosmetic disfigurement is the primary concern. Treatment options are limited and have shown only variable success. Repetitive surgical excision may be necessary. We report a cystic lymphangioma of the axilla occurring in association with a Beckerapos;s nevus in an i...

Becker's nevus is a unilateral, hyperpigmented cutaneous hamartoma usually with hypertrichosis. It occurs predominantly in boys, becoming apparent during adolescence, although several cases of congenital Becker's nevus have been reported. Rarely it may be familial and as such is transmitted in an autosomal dominant pattern. We report a 16-month-old black boy with a hyperpigmented patch on his right shoulder and upper pectoral area that extended down his arm. The patient's father has a similar le...

The new term Becker nevus syndrome is proposed for a phenotype characterized by the presence of a particular type of organoid epithelial nevus showing hyperpigmentation, increased hairiness and hamartomatous augmentation of smooth muscle fibers, and other developmental defects such as ipsilateral hypoplasia of breast and skeletal anomalies including scoliosis, spina bifida occulta, or ipsilateral hypoplasia of a limb. The present review includes 23 cases that can be categorized under this design...

The purpose of the study was to analyze the radiographic features of segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia by studying the radiographs of 12 new cases. With a standard data collection form, the radiographic characteristics were assessed by the two principal investigators who studied available radiographs of all cases. As in previously reported cases, abnormal findings in all patients were confined to the posterior segment of one maxilla. The most common findings in the cases studied were sclerosis...

Abstract Background. The McCune-Albright syndrome is a sporadic disease characterized by polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, cafe au lait spots, sexual precocity, and hyperfunction of multiple endocrine glands. These manifestations may be explained by a somatic mutation in affected tissues that results in activation of the signal-transduction pathway generating cyclic AMP (cAMP). We analyzed DNA from tissues of patients with the McCune-Albright syndrome for the presence of activating mutations of the...

We report an analysis of eight cases with features as described for hemimaxillofacial dysplasia and compare our cases with those of that original report by Miles and associates. Patients were young and had bone and/or gingival enlargement, dental abnormalities, and unique radiographic and histologic features. Osseous and dental abnormalities were confined to the maxillary alveolus extending from the canine region to the tuberosity. Ipsilateral facial hypertrichosis was not observed. The conditio...

: Becker's nevus is a benign lesion that may be congenital or acquired, macular or papular, hairless or hypertrichotic. It is most commonly located on the upper trunk of young men. Histologic examination shows characteristic changes, but dermal nevus cells are never present. Bony and soft tissue structural anomalies occur with increased frequency in patients with Becker's nevus.

: Hemimaxillary enlargement, asymmetry of the face, tooth abnormalities, and skin findings (HATS) syndrome, a rare developmental disorder, involves the first and second branchial arches and is characterized by hemimaxillary enlargement, abnormal appearance of skin and teeth, and facial asymmetry. It is generally detected at birth or during early childhood and is associated with unilateral abnormalities of the face, including the bones, teeth, gums, and skin. Becker nevus is the most common cutan...

Abstract Background and Overview Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOD) is a characteristic developmental abnormality that demonstrates posterior maxillary enlargement, dental abnormalities, altered bone trabeculation, and possible cutaneous findings. Only 62 cases have been reported in the English-language literature. Case Description The authors described 3 newly diagnosed cases of SOD, all found in the left posterior maxilla in adolescent female patients; they reviewed the literature to el...

Although the Becker nevus syndrome (BNS) is primarily defined as a Becker nevus (BN) in association with ipsilateral breast hypoplasia or musculoskeletal malformation, there are case reports about various associated malformations. The purpose of this study was to identify and analyze the common manifestations of the BNS. We conducted a systematic literature research about BNS and reviewed all available literature. In order to get an overview of the clinical manifestation, we analyzed all case re...

Riassunto Obiettivi Viene presentata una revisione della letteratura riguardante la displasia odontomascellare segmentale (Segmental Odontomaxillary Dysplasia, SOD) e si descrive il primo caso italiano. Materiali e metodi La banca dati PubMed e stata consultata mediante la ricerca delle seguenti parole chiave: “segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia”, “hemimaxillofacial dysplasia”, “hemimaxillary enlargment”. Dei 32 lavori ottenuti, sono stati selezionati 18 casi clinici e 10 case series, pubblicat...

The clinical and radiological features of segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOD) are well described but the condition is probably under recognized owing to misdiagnosis as an atypical form of regional odontodysplasia (ROD). Two cases are compared to highlight the differences between SOD and ROD. The clinical, radiographic and histological findings are compared using case reports of a 6-year-old male with SOD and a 4-year-old girl with ROD. Treatment and follow-up for these patients is describ...
Becker's nevus is a cutaneous hamartoma characterized by circumscribed hyperpigmentation with hypertrichosis. Becker's nevus syndrome is an association of Becker's nevus with unilateral breast hypoplasia and muscle, skin, and/or skeletal abnormalities. We here report a case of a 15 year-old female who presented with bilateral Becker's nevus over her groins, thighs, vulva, and in front of the neck from the age of 5 years. She had associated mental retardation, delayed development of mile stones, ...

Summary Introduction Becker's nevus is a dermatological disease sometimes associated with a malformation such as hemifacial bone dysplasia. Observation A 11-year-old male patient presented with a delayed growth of the left maxillary and dental impactions. At 15 years of age, Becker's nevus appeared on the upper torso, both shoulders and cheeks. Le Fort I segmented osteotomy with an iliac bone graft was complicated because of maxillary dysplasia. Discussion The chronology of our patient's cutaneo...

Segmental Odontomaxillary Dysplasia (SOD) is an uncommon developmental disorder of unknown etiology that causes a unilateral alteration of the maxilla associated with an abnormal growth and maturation of bone, lack of one or both premolars and delayed tooth eruption on the affected side, alteration of adjacent gingival tissue with or without facial cutaneous lesions. Radiographically is observed an irregular trabecular pattern and reduction of the maxillary sinus. There are 50 cases reported in ...

c d l In 1987, Miles et al described 2 otherwise healthy patients, 3.5 and 15 years of age, who exhibited congenital mild facial asymmetry and unilateral enlargement of the maxillary gingiva and alveolar bone. One patient had hypoplastic teeth in the affected quadrant and missing premolars, and the other patient had hypoplasia of only the premolars. The older patient also exhibited hypertrichosis of skin in the affected area. The investigators suggested the term hemimaxillofacial dysplasia (HD) ...
