Oral mucosal lesions associated with foreign body injuries can have various origins, but traumatic lesions of the oral mucosa caused by other organisms are rare. Such cases thus require special knowledge for diagnosis. We report a case of oral stings from spermatophores of Todarodes pacificus, the Pacific squid. The patient was a 31-year-old woman who cooked the internal organs of a raw T. pacificus for lunch. She experienced a sharp pain on the tongue and buccal mucosa when eating the organs. On checking the oral cavity, she identified multiple white objects with a worm-like appearance sticking into the tongue and oral mucosa. Attempts to remove these objects herself were unsuccessful. She then visited the emergency department of our hospital. We examined the oral cavity and found multiple white objects appearing to be parasitic worms sticking into the tongue and oral mucosa. Attempts to remove the objects with forceps were unsuccessful because of tight attachment to the mucosa. Removal was thus achieved by making slight incisions under local anesthesia. The specimens showed a white spinate shape and were about 4mm long. Endoscopic examination of the upper digestive tract after treatment of the oral cavity revealed no additional foreign bodies. The final pathological diagnosis was spermatophores of T. pacificus.

A case of sting wounds of the oral mucosa caused by spermatophores of a raw squid is reported. The patient was a 61-year-old woman. She noticed pain of the oral mucosa immediately after eating part of a raw squid. Several milky white, club-shaped foreign bodies measuring 3 to 5 mm were stuck in the tongue, buccal mucosa, and floor of the mouth. These were not mobile and were hard to remove. The clinical diagnosis was sting wounds of the oral mucosa caused by spermatophores of a squid. These foreign bodies were excised together with the surrounding tissue under local anesthesia. Wound healing was uneventful. Histologically, the foreign bodies contained numerous spermatozoa and were identified as spermatothecae, which were ejected from the spermatophores of a raw squid.

In humans over 120 human papillomavirus (HPV) types have been completely described. HPVs have also been classified as low and high risk HPV types based on the clinical behavior of the HPV infected tissues. HPV proteins, especially the oncoproteins E6 and E7 of the oncogenic HPVs, interact with different degrees of affinity, with host cell proteins to disturb the normal epithelial differentiation and apoptosis by stimulating cellular proliferation, DNA synthesis and inhibition of cell cycle regulators. The best characterized interactions so far are the interactions between E7 and pRb and E6 and p53. Continued and aberrant expression of the E6 and E7 genes of the high risk HPVs will lead to genomic instability which finally after accumulation of mutational events can result in malignant transformation. Persistent infection with high risk HPV increase the risk of squamous cell carcinoma, while the low risk HPV may be associated with benign lesions. Also, HPV infections can be detected in the oral cavity and HPVs have been described as being associated with malignant lesions, such as oral squamous cell carcinoma and with benign lesions such as leukoplakia and oral papilloma. It is suggested that oral mucosa might serve as a reservoir of HPVs. Now, an inoculation of vaccine preventing HPV infection is performed, and the result begins to appear for the prevention of the cervical cancer. In addition, an improvement in the state of oral hygiene decreases the rate of HPV infection, and indicated that oral care may be an effective way to prevent HPV infections. The present conditions and the future prospects of the prevention and the treatment of HPV infections in the oral region are reported.

Fibromyalgia syndrome is a disease characterized by chronic pain and multiple tender points over the entire body. The cause of the disease is unknown, and patients are sometimes have various uncertain complaints. In this paper, we report a case of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) accompanied by fibromyalgia.The patient was a 26-year-old woman who received treatments for autonomic imbalance and panic disorder at a psychosomatic clinic. She complained of strong malaise, headache, tinnitus, insomnia, and constipation. She also had bilateral pain of the masticatory and neck muscles and around the temporomandibular joints. The range of maximum mouth opening was 23mm. The patient had edge-to-edge occlusion in the molar region and slight open bite in the incisor region.She received a diagnosis of temporomandibular disorders of type I and fibromyalgia. The patient was successfully treated with a stabilization splint for temporomandibular disorders and antidepressants for fibromyalgia.

The current foundation of preventing nosocomial infection in dental settings are “Guidelines for infection control in dental health-care settings” announced in 2003 by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These guidelines employ a concept of standard precaution in clinical dentistry, and had a great influence on “Guideline for infection control in dental prosthetics” established in 2007 by Japan Prosthodontic Society and “Guideline for infection control in dentistry” announced by the dental division of the infection control conference of the national university hospitals in 2008. On the other hand, there have been many reports about oral care, for instance, ‘1) oral care prevents aspiration-related pneumonia', ‘2) oral care decreases the onset rate of the influenza to a one-tenth, (oral care decreases significantly neuraminidase and protease which bacteria produce) ', ‘3) oral care reduces a side effect in the oral cavity by the chemoradiotherapy', ‘4) oral care prevents ventilator-associated pneumonia in ICU', ‘5) oral care is useful for symptom relief in terminal illness', and an importance of oral care has been widely noticed in late years.

Oromandibular dystonia is characterized by involuntary contraction of the masticatory and tongue muscles, causing difficulties in mastication or speech. Muscle afferent block (MAB) therapy by intramuscular injection of lidocaine and alcohol is aimed at reducing muscle spindle afferents. We treated 37 patients with oromandibular dystonia by intramuscularly injecting 5 to 10ml of 0.5% lidocaine with 0.5 to 1ml of 99.5% alcohol. The muscles for injection were chosen from among the masseter, the inferior head of the lateral pterygoid muscle, the anterior belly of the digastric muscle, the genioglossal muscle, the medical pterygoid muscle, the sternocleidomastoid muscle, and the trapezius muscle. The effect of therapy was assessed subjectively on a linear self-rating scale ranging from 0 (no improvement) to 100 points (complete cure). All patients showed clinical improvement with reduced EMG activity in the affected muscles. The mean number of injections was 10.1±5.8. The overall subjective improvement rate was 60.8±25.4%. Maximal mouth opening (26.0±7.7mm) in patients with restricted mouth opening increased significantly (<I>p</I><0.0001, <I>t</I> test) after treatment (37.1±7.6mm). Some patients had tenderness, stiffness, or swelling of the muscles after repeated injection. The discomfort disappeared spontaneously after discontinuing therapy. MAB therapy is an effective means of treating oromandibular dystonia that has no major side effects.

Concool F®is a chemical mouthwash containing chlorhexidine gluconate that is used for the treatment of periodontal disease and halitosis. We report a case of gingival necrosis caused by incorrect use of Concool F®A 52-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of gingival necrosis. One week before presentation, she went to sleep after putting a cotton roll soaked in a large amount of Concool F®solution (0.36 % chlorhexidine gluconate) on the upper gingiva to reduce bad breath. She noticed bleeding and a painful ulcer in the upper gum from the maxillary right lateral incisor to the left second premolar.Whenever a mouthwash agent containing chlorhexidine gluconate is used, we must be cautious about its usage and dosage and instruct the patients on proper use.

In dry mouth clinic, there are many patients who complained of subjective feelings of dry mouth despite their normal salivation. This dry mouth frequently comorbid with glossodynia or oral dysaesthesia. So far, these complaints have been thought to be ‘psychogenic’. Namely, psychosocial factors and/or individual factors have long been considered as main cause. Even if oral surgeons referred patients to psychiatry clinic, a majority of them wished to avoid consultation, or, would sometimes complain that the dry mouth got worse after medication. Therefore, it is very important and difficult problems for clinical oral surgeons to see how look at these patients and to learn how cope with them.From my own years of experience in psychosomatic studies, I think ‘distorted cognition ’ is central to these pathogenesis. These distorted cognition cause dissociations between subjective and objective findings. Moreover, I have propose a hypothesis that neurochemical dysfunction of some sort of neurotransmitter systems and distortions of information-processing in cerebral association area related to thought and memory underlie the distorted cognition.Patients with subjective dry mouth never tell a lie about their symptoms, but they have just ‘ neural network error’ in their brain. We should take up to problems of oral discomfort at the root of their complaint.If we suspect their complaints as the cause of psychogenic, it might be often unsuccessful in treatment. First of all, to listen carefully to complaints from them is very important, and then we have to do differential diagnosis. If patients are diagnosed the symptom form with distorted cognition, medication using SSRI or SNRI is necessary for reconstruction of impaired neuronal network. Of course oral surgeons have to receive advanced education and training to use psychotropic drugs. At the same time, it is needed for sensitive response to patients and family members.The distorted cognition with these patients are associated with dysfunction of neurotransmitter systems and information-processing in peripheral to higher central nervous system. Strange complaints and persistent therapeutic demand are representatives of the distorted cognition. If we regard queer complaints as neural network errors, we can see the psychogenic complaints as distorted cognition.At present, this hypothesis cannot be shown objectively, but it might be possible that some new approaches such as brain imaging make mechanisms of the distorted cognition more clear. It is very important to collect evidence-based diagnosis, therapies and pathophysiological mechanism for dry mouth as an oral psychosomatic disorder.

We studied whether epidermal growth factor (EGF) enhances the motility of human oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cells in an autocrine manner. The motility of five SCC cell lines (SAS, Ca 9-22, HSC-2, -3, -4) was examined with the use of a phagokinetic track assay. The motility of SAS cells and HSC-2 cells was significantly increased without EGF stimulation as compared with the three other cell lines. Amounts of EGF in the culture supernatants of the five cell lines after 48h of culture were examined with the immunoblotting method. EGF was detected in the supernatants of SAS cells and HSC-2 cells (SAS, 8.65±0.45; HSC-2, 2.60±1.13ng/ml). SAS cells, showing the highest levels of motility and EGF production, was used for further study. When SAS cells were treated with anti-EGF antibody, anti-EGF receptor antibody, and erbstatin analog, the motility of SAS cells was significantly inhibited. Furthermore, the culture supernatant of SAS cells enhanced the motility of HSC-3 cells in a concentration-dependent fashion. These results suggest that EGF may stimulate the motility of human oral SCC cells in an autocrine manner.

Primary Sjören’s syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by lymphocytic infiltrates and destruction of the salivary and lacrimal glands, leading to clinical symptoms of dryness of the mouth and eyes. Autoreactive T cells bearing CD4 molecule may recognize unknown self antigen, triggering autoimmunity in the salivary and lacrimal glands. Recent evidences suggest that the apoptotic pathway plays a central role in tolerazing T cells to tissue-specific self antigen including 120KD α-fodrin, and may drive the autoimmune phenomenon. Cleavage of certain autoantigens during apoptosis may reveal immunocryptic epitopes that could potentially induce autoimmune response. It is now evident that the interaction of Fas with FasL regulates a large number of pathophysiological process of apoptosis including autoimmune diseases. Our data imply that tissue-specific apoptosis and caspase-mediated α-fodrin proteolysis are involved in the progression of autoimmune lesions in SS. We found that retinoblastoma-associated protein RbAp48 overexpression induces apoptosis in the salivary glands caused by estrogen deficiency. The studies reviewed the pathology and molecular mechanisms on the development of SS.

A case of orbital abscess with gas gangrene due to odontogenic infection is reported. Although orbital abscesses are rare, they may result in fatal complications. A 68-year-old woman presented with pain and swelling of the left cheek and lower eyelid. She was unable to open her left eye. Oral examination revealed alveolar gingival swelling due to a periapical lesion of the left upper anterior tooth. Computed tomographic scans confirmed abscess formation in the left orbit and the presence of a gas bubble. The ocular tension was 50 mmHg. On admission to our hospital, the patient started to receive antibiotics (PAPM/BP and CLDM), the left lower eyelid was incised, and the abscess was successfully drained. <i>Alpha-streptococcus</i>, <i>coagulase-negative staphylococcus</i>, and <i>Prevotella melaniogenica</i> were detected in the suppuration. The patient was given a diagnosis of orbital abscess with gas gangrene due to odontogenic infection extending by way of the orbit.

We report a rare case of brain abscess secondary to mandibular odontogenic infection. A 50-year-oldman developed an abscess of the infratemporal fossa, masticatory myositis, and temporal myositis caused bylower first molar marginal periodontitis. Incision and drainage were performed by an intraoral approach, andantibiotics were administered intravenously. On the 8th disease day, vomiting occurred, but responded to anantiemetic drug. On the 9th disease day, extraction of lower first molar and adrasion was performed, resulting inthe alleviation of local symptoms. However, a persistent headache occurred, CT and MRI scans revealed a brainabscess and subdural abscess in the temporal lobe, immediately above the skull internal base. The patient wasgiven a diagnosis of brain abscess caused by odontogenic infection. The abscess almost disappeared after conservativetherapy administered at the department of brain surgery, and no sequelae were noted. The abscess apparentlyexpanded directly and continuously from the skull base through the foramen ovale and foramen spinosum.This case emphasizes the need to diagnose brain abscess and subdural abscess as complications of odontogenicinfection.

Amyloid is defined as a pathologic fibrous proteinaceous substance which, when deposited between the cells of tissues and organs, leads to various clinical conditions. Immunohistochemistry has allowed for better classification and understanding of the pathophysiology of amyloidosis.<BR>A 70-year-old man was referred to our department because of spontaneous purpura of the skin and hematoma of the oral mucosa. There was no chemical or hematologic abnormality on routine examination. Bence Jones protein was positive in the urine. Bone marrow examination, however, revealed an slightly increased proportion of plasma cells. It was unlikely that the Bence Jones protein was associated with multiple myeloma. Skin biopsy revealed depositions of amyloid, and Congo red stain for amyloid was positive. In addition, immunofluoroecent staining resulted in a diagnosis of AA amyloidosis.<BR>The patient was treated with a combination of colchicine, melphalan, and prednisolone; however, 7 months after initial presentation he died of cardiac failure. Autopsy revealed multiple-organ vascular amyloidosis, and a diagnosis of bullous amyloidosis was made.

The speech function of a 55-year-old woman with a speech disorder due to a large torus palatinus was evaluated before and after surgery. Auditive impressions were assessed by a speech intelligibility test of 100 syllables, an articulation test, and a diadochokinetic ability test. Speech functions were measured by static palatography, tongue cephalography with contrast media, and acoustic analysis. The results showed slight speech disorder during production of /hj/, /kj/, and /gj/ before surgery and improvement in speech function without speech therapy after surgery.
