Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) (OMIM 119300) is a dominantly inherited developmental disorder that is characterized by pits and/or sinuses of the lower lip and cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Mutations in the interferon regulatory factor 6 gene (IRF6) have been recently identified in patients with VWS, with more than 60 mutations reported. We report the phenotypic variants of the syndrome in a family and present the application of the multicolor chromosome banding (mBAND) analysis in the identification of complex intrachromosome rearrangements of chromosome 9 in a child with VWS. The authors conclude that increased heterochromatin on chromosome 9 did not have any effect on the phenotypic expression of the syndrome in the family that was studied. Source

Aneurysmal bone cysts are rare benign lesions of bony tissue, infrequent in craniofacial skeleton but common in other structures like long bones and spine. In the jaws aneurysmal bone cysts are non-neoplastic but locally aggressive with occasional rapid growth and are difficult to differentiate from other multilocular lesions of jaws like ameloblastomas, keratocystic odontogenic tumors, ossifying fibromas, epithelial cysts, giant cell granulomas and sarcomas radiographically as well as clinically. They are composed of sinusoidal blood filled vascular spaces and surrounded by fibrous tissue septa. Treatment of choice ranges from conservative surgical excision of the mass with curettage or enucleation to resection when creates a large defect, primary surgical reconstruction is recommended. © 2012 .

As dentistry moves towards earlier detection of lesions and a more preventive rather than restorative approach, it is essential to improve the predictive values of new screening and diagnostic methods. This study was conducted to evaluate the accuracy of the Cariogram in predicting the occurrence of caries in first permanent molars. Thirty children aged 8 years were included who were divided in two groups depending on presence of carious or non carious first permanent molars. Their Cariograms were plotted and the likelihood of caries as indicated by the Cariogram was compared to the actual occurrence of caries in first permanent molars. Results revealed that the Cariogram had a diagnostic accuracy of 63.33% thus emphasising the need for better prediction models. © 2010 FDI/World Dental Press. Source
