Purpose: This study was designed for identification of the main clinicopathological features of cysts in the oral and maxillofacial regions. Methods: A retrospective observational study was conducted on 164 patients who had been diagnosed with cyst of the jaw, from the database of 168 histopathological diagnoses at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of Busan Paik Hospital at Inje University, from January 2009 to December 2011. The subjects were treated and the following variables were recorded: gender, age, clinical signs and symptoms, histopathological distribution, treatment methods, and complications. A descriptive analysis of the study variables was performed using a chi-square test. Results: Among the 164 patients, there were more male than female patients (male-female ratio: 1.7:1). The most predominant ages were the 20s and 40s. Among the classes of pathological cysts, radicular cysts and dentigerous cysts were the most common, with incidences of 56.0% and 35.1%. Thirty-six percent of the patients had no symptoms; and of those who had symptoms, the main signs and symptoms were swelling (24.4%) and pain (17.1%). The most frequent management method was the combination operation, such as enucleation with or without extraction and apicoectomy of the causative teeth. Of the 164 patients, 13 had complications; and one patient who had been treated with enucleation with apicoectomy had a recurrent cyst. Conclusion: Using a chi-square test, no significant differences in prevalence were observed in relation to gender according to age. Comparative analysis of radicular and dentigerous cysts showed a significant difference in their prevalence according to their anatomical location, however, no significant differences in were observed in their incidence rates according to age.

Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with variable conditions, including multiple basal cell carcinoma, numerous keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KOTs) in the jaws, ectopic calcification of the falx cerebri, bifid ribs, macrocephaly, kyphoscoliosis, cleft palate, frontal and temporal bossing, mild ocular hypertelorism, mild mandibular prognathism, vertebral fusion, and so on. A 16-year-old boy visited the Dong-A University Medical Center, requiring diagnosis and treatment of multiple cystic lesions. He presented with many conditions related to NBCCS, including multiple KOTs, bifid rib, cleft lip, frontal bossing, mild ocular hypertelorism, and mild mandibular prognathism. No characteristic cutaneous manifestations (nevoid basal cell carcinoma) were observed in this patient. We report on a case of multiple KOTs associated with NBCCS with a review of the literature.

Epithelial cysts are benign epithelium-lined lesions that contain fluid or semisolid material. Most epithelial cysts in the oral cavity occur in the anterior part of the mouth floor. Cysts arising on the uvula in a cleft palate patient are rare. Intraoral examination in a 14-month-old boy with a complete cleft lip and palate revealed a cystic lesion on the right uvula. The lesion was excised and push-back palatorrhaphy with Z-plasty on the uvula was performed. Histopathological examination diagnosed an epithelial cyst. We report a case of an epithelial cyst of uvula in a patient with a unilateral complete cleft lip and palate.

Mandibular condylar hyperplasia is an uncommon condition of excessive unilateral growth of the condyle causing facial asymmetry and occlusal alterations. The etiology of condylar hyperplasia is unclear, but several factors are suspected, including previous trauma, hormonal disturbances, and abnormal functional loadings. Acute or chronic recurrent dislocation of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is common, but long-standing dislocation is rare. We present two cases of the exophytic condylar hyperplasia that lasted for over 20 years with TMJ dislocation. In both cases, we performed a condyloplasty to restore normal occlusion and facial symmetry, with satisfactory results.

Maxillary sinus infection following Le Fort I osteotomy is rare in patients without a history of preexisting nasal symptoms. A case of a 19-year-old male patient who suffered from preoperative chronic non-allergic rhinitis and developed repetitive postoperative maxillary sinus infection after Le Fort I osteotomy is reported.

The purpose of this study is to report on five cases treated with bone graft using recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) on jaw defects after cyst enucleation. We performed bone graft with BMP (rhBMP-2+
-tricalcium phosphate/hydroxyapatite) wrapped with a collagen sponge on jaw defects after cyst enucleation. Postoperative panoramic radiographs were taken periodically. After 1 to 12 months, bone remodeling was observed in the jaw defect area. In our cases, there were few signs or symptoms of recurrence of the cyst during the follow-up period.

There are many treatment options in management of mandibular condylar neck fractures. Closed reduction is the most conservative treatment; however, achievement of anatomic reduction is difficult, and there are some risks of mandibular functional impairment. Open anatomic reduction and internal fixation have some advantages; therefore, many oral and maxillofacial surgeons have attempted to achieve anatomic reduction through the open approach and extracorporeal reduction and fixation. However, when using this method, there is some risk of resorption of the fractured mandibular condylar head. Therefore, we designed a modified extracorporeal reduction technique, without detaching the lateral pterygoid muscle in order to maintain the blood supply to the fractured mandibular condylar head. We believe that this minor modification may minimize the risk of resorption of the fractured mandibular condylar head. In this article, we introduce this technique in detail, and report on two cases.
