Sturge -Weber Syndrome - Three Classic variants
RS Sathawane, RN Mody, Apeksha Balpande
July-September 2006, 18(3):144-149
Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS), also known as encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis, a sporadic, non-familial, congenital disorder consists of congenital hamartomatous malformations that may affect the eye, skin and central nervous system at different times. Sturge-Weber syndrome is classified as 1) Complete trisymptomatic: - when all three organ systems i.e. eye, skin and CNS are involved 2) Incomplete bisymptomatic:- when the involvement is either oculocutaneous or neurocutaneous, and 3) Incomplete monosymptomatic: when there is only neural or cutaneous involvement. Failure of proper vascular development is believed to be the most likely cause of this condition. The malformed blood vessels or hemangiomas may lead to port-wine stain, epilepsy and glaucoma depending on its location. Three classic variants with typical findings are discussed.

Prescription Drug Abuse and Oral Clues - an Overview
K Lahari, Karthikeya Patil, VG Mahima
July-September 2006, 18(3):150-154
Drug abuse is a growing trend, with people in every walk of life and at every economic level abusing drugs. Prescription drugs are those that are both legal and sanctioned by doctors. Most of these drugs are accurately labeled so those who want to use them to get 'high' know exactly what is in them. Among the various known routes of prescription drug abuse, snorting, smoking and oral use of drugs are the ones that concern us the most because of their possible oral clues. The patient may present to us with a complaint of dry mouth or a characteristic pattern of caries or even perforation of the palate. Drug abusers are known to be psychologically unstable and often do not disclose the habit and tend to fake symptoms as well. It thus becomes a highly challenging task for the oral diagnostician to recognize such lesions and correlate them to the abuse of drugs. Also, extreme caution should be taken while prescribing drugs with a potential for abuse.

Frey's Syndrome as a Sequela of Superficial Parotidectomy
Rishi Kumar Bali, Naveen Chhabra, Zarina
July-September 2006, 18(3):181-183
Frey Syndrome (Gustatory Sweating) is a common complication after surgical intervention or injury in parotid gland region. Frey attributed these symptoms to scar formation around the auriculotemporal nerve after damage caused by parotidectomies, condylar fractures and after a subcondylar osteotomy. Pathogenesis is based on regeneration of sectioned parasympathetic fibres with inappropriate innervation of cutaneous sweat glands. The disorder is characterized by unilateral sweating and flushing of facial skin in the area of parotid gland occurring during meals. We present a case of a patient who developed symptoms of Frey Syndrome 4 months after undergoing superficial parotidectomy on left side.

Dental Considerations for Age Determination in humans
Althaf Hussain Chalkoo
July-September 2006, 18(3):184-188
The basis for dental identification is the theory that human dentition is never the same in any two individuals. Although teeth are resistant to environmental insults during life they are susceptible to physiological and pathological changes. As a result teeth may have restorations which may alter their original morphology. Dental age estimation makes use of morphologic, radiographic, histological and biochemical methods- to estimate age dependant changes in teeth.

Comparative Evaluation of Radiographic Techniques for the Localization of Impacted Maxillary Canine
Manjula Hebbale, Rajshekhar Halli, Anjana Bagewadi, Vaishali Keluskar
July-September 2006, 18(3):155-162
The maxillary canine being the last anterior tooth to erupt in the oral cavity, is commonly impacted and the reasons for which are multifocal. It is necessary to locate the position of the impacted tooth in order to carry out a proper treatment plan. Various clinical and radiologic methods have been carried out to localize the position of the impacted tooth. The most commonly used methods include the parallax / tube shift, right angle technique, occlusal and the panoramic radiographs. This article reviews the various radiographic techniques and summarizes the current literature about the localization of impacted maxillary canine. This study confirms that the single panoramic radiograph is adequate to localize the position of the impacted maxillary canine, provided that both the magnification index and the vertical restriction criteria are used.
