  • Alpha-Thalassemia-Myelodysplastic Syndrome

    […] of the maxillae Ribs and long bones becoming boxlike and convex Premature closure of epiphyses resulting in shortened limbs Compression fracture of the spine (which may result[emedicine.medscape.com] […] characteristic of beta thalassemia intermedia or beta thalassemia major) Prominent frontal bossing (due to bone marrow expansion) Delayed pneumatization of sinuses Marked overgrowth[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hereditary Gingival Fibromatosis

    Clinical examination revealed moderate to severe gingival overgrowth on both mandible and maxilla. Generalized attachment loss and mobility of the teeth were observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Hereditary gingival fibromatosis (HGF) is a rare oral disease characterized by a slow and progressive enlargement of both the maxilla and mandible gingiva.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All molars are impacted. ( d ) Gingival overgrowth of mandible, mainly in premolar region, is less severe than that of maxilla.[nature.com]

  • Gingival Hyperplasia

    On clinical examination a generalized and firm overgrowth of the gingival throughout the maxilla and the mandible were evident.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gingival Fibromatosis-Progressive Deafness Syndrome

    Clinical features HGF1 is characterized by slowly progressive fibrous overgrowth of the gingival tissues of the maxilla and mandible ( Fig. 3 ).[pocketdentistry.com] All molars are impacted. ( d ) Gingival overgrowth of mandible, mainly in premolar region, is less severe than that of maxilla.[nature.com] The exact mechanism by which the SOS1 gene mutation results in the gingival overgrowth is not currently known.[pocketdentistry.com]
