Nevi of Ota are usually characterised by unilateral, mottled, slate blue or dark brown macules on the forehead and face around the eye area. These are unusual skin discolorations in which melanocytes are found deeper than normal. Ota's nevus is usually congenital but may appear in early childhood or in puberty. We summarise a case report along with histological and management aspects of this cosmetically unappealing condition. Source

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a double-stranded virus belonging to human herpes virus family. Although it exists in eight various forms, HSV-1 causes most of the oral infections. Since dentists are more likely to be consulted in the case of oral infections, familiarity with these lesions becomes mandatory. It is more commonly reported in children and rarely in adults. This article presents an acute episode of primary herpetic gingivostomatitis in a 32-year-old male patient. Source

Internal resorption is a relatively rare resorption of dentine, which starts in the pulpal cavity either in the pulpal chamber or in the root canal and destroys surrounding dental hard tissues. The initiating factor in internal root resorption is thought to be trauma or chronic pulpal inflammation, but other aetiological factors have also been suggested. The prognosis for treatment of small lesions of internal resorption is good. However, if the tooth structure is greatly weakened and perforation has occurred, the prognosis is poor and tooth extraction must be considered. In this article we report a rare case of internal resorption in a 26-year-old male patient. Source

Taurodontism leads to constriction of the cementoenamel junction, which results in vertically elongated pulp chambers, apical displacement of the pulpal floor, and bifurcation or trifurcation of the root. This trait can be seen in permanent and primary teeth, in a single tooth or in several molars in the same quadrant, and can be unilateral or bilateral. We report a rare case of a 26-year-old male patient presening with taurodontism involving all the developed molars of all four quadrants, which was not associated with any other anomalies or syndromes.

Root perforations are undesired complications of endodontic treatment. The repair of root perforation can be accomplished using different materials and techniques. Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is widely used to seal perforations because of its biocompatibility and sealability. This article describes a case report where an iatrogenic root perforation was repaired successfully with MTA in maxillary right central incisor of a 13-year-old boy. Source
