Brown tumors are erosive bony lesions caused by rapid osteoclastic activity and peritrabecular fibrosis due to primary or secondary hyperparathyroidism resulting in a local destructive phenomenon. The differential diagnosis based on histological examination is only presumptive. Clinical, radiological and laboratory data are necessary for definitive diagnosis. Here, we report a very rare case of brown tumor involving maxilla and mandible, which is the result of secondary hyperparathyroidism in 30-year-old female patient with chronic renal disease.

A talon cusp is a supernumerary structure projecting from the dento-enamel junction to a variable distance towards the incisal edge of an anterior tooth. It consists of enamel, dentine and a variable amount of pulp tissue. Hyperactivity of the enamel organ during morpho-differentiation has been attributed to its formation. It has esthetic and functional concerns. Reports of a mandibular talon cusp are rare in the literature. To the best of our knowledge, only 14 cases have been reported, of which only 2 cases in mandibular left central incisors. We report the second instance of a talon cusp in the lingual aspect of the mandibular left central incisor and the first such report in a patient of Libyan origin. A talon cusp is an odontogenic anomaly, which can cause occlusal interferences, displacement of the affected tooth and speech difficulties. Early diagnosis of a talon cusp helps in selecting the appropriate treatment procedure and to avoid future complications.

Candidiasis, a common opportunistic fungal infection of the oral cavity, may be a cause of discomfort in dental patients. There are few local factors that make the oral tissues susceptible to Candida infection. These factors include acid saliva, xerostomia, night use of prosthetic dentures, tobacco, carbohydrate rich diets and patients that receive radiotherapy and chemotherapy in maxillofacial structures. Maintenance of oral hygiene and early diagnosis of this condition is very important. © 2014 Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development. All rights reserved.

We report a rare case of Hunter syndrome-mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II) with atypical presentation of mild mental retardation, acrocephalic head without corneal clouding, and multiple skin eruptions along with oral, dental, and radiographic findings. It is a rare syndrome with a very low prevalence of 1:100,000 births and as such the clinician should be aware of this syndrome.

Anterior crown fractures are a common form of traumatic dental injuries that mainly affect the maxillary central incisors in children and teenagers.(1) Traumatic injuries of the teeth involve varying degrees of damage to the supporting soft tissues, or the teeth itself. In the pre-adhesive era, fractured teeth needed to be restored either with pin retained inlays or cast restorations that sacrificed the healthy tooth structure and were a challenge for clinicians to match with the adjacent teeth.(3) With the advent of adhesive dentistry, the process of fragment reattachment has become simplified and more reliable. This study reports a case of fragment reattachment of the maxillary right central incisor.
