Abstract

Introduction

Oral squamous cell carcinoma, the fifth most common cancer worldwide, is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in India. It most commonly occurs in middle-aged and older individuals. Typically, they tend to be preceded by a premalignant state for a long time. The present study evaluates the clinicopathological profile of patients with oral lesions and the role of malpractices that promote carcinogenesis in the oral mucosa and the use of Ki-67 as an important predictor of the same.

Materials and methods

The expression of Ki-67 was studied in paraffin-embedded tissue sections of oral lesions of all the cases after taking a detailed history and examination.

Results

The study was conducted on 65 patients with 25 dysplastic and 40 malignant lesions. Males were affected more frequently than females. The most common age group affected was 31 to 60 years with mean age of 45.4 years. Anterior twothird of tongue (41%) was the most commonly affected site. 95% of the patients had a history of addiction in form of smoking, tobacco chewing and betel nut. Out of 25 cases of dysplasia, 11 showed low expression while out of 40 cases of squamous cell carcinoma only three showed low and 29 showed high expression of Ki-67.

Conclusion

The expression of Ki-67 correlates well with the disease progression from dysplasia to carcinoma of the oral cavity. It is therefore a marker of malignant transformation and carcinogenesis in oral premalignant lesions and in future it may serve as a prognostic tool in the early detection of malignancy.

Stridor in Epiglottic Cyst: A Rare Presentation

[Year:2013] [Month:May-August] [Volume:4] [Number:2] [Pages:2] [Pages No:110 - 111]

PDF  |  DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-10001-1154  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Objective

To emphasize that epiglottic cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all adults presenting with stridor.

Case report

A 55-year-old male patient presented with stridor of 2 days duration. He also had complaints of gradually progressive difficulty in swallowing for solids and had muffled voice for the past 3 months. Oropharyngeal examination revealed a large cystic mass behind the base of tongue. An indirect laryngoscopy and 70° telescopic laryngoscopy showed a large cystic mass filling both vallecular regions obscuring rest of the larynx. He underwent tracheostomy for airway distress followed by excision of the cyst.

Conclusion

This case highlights the possibility of a rare presentation of epiglottic cyst in an adult presenting with stridor requiring an early definitive management.
