Acupuncture Analgesia for Temporomandibular Disorders
Ravikiran Ongole
July-September 2005, 17(3):107-109
Our understanding of the temporomandibular joint dysfunction has identified a myriad of causes for this condition. However, the outstanding concern and priority of treatment procedures are generally the same. It is a traditional procedure for the therapist to discover the cause of the pain and dysfunction of the temporomandibular apparatus and then to correct it. This paper describes acupuncture as one such simple and effective treatment modality for managing pain associated with temporomandibular disorders.

CLINICAL REVIEW
Computed Tomography - "The Changing Role of Maxillofacial Imaging"
Ambika Gupta, FR Karjodkar
July-September 2005, 17(3):103-106
The past three decades have witnessed great advances in the field of diagnostic imaging. Many of these advances have greatly facilitated the diagnosis and treatment of a number of maxillofacial disorders. These modalities while employing different physical principles, are often complimentary, providing valuable information about different aspects of a given disease process. Computed Tomography, 3-D Computed Tomography, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging are some such valuable adjuncts, which have opened new dimensions in the diagnosis of maxillofacial disorders.

CASE REPORTS
A Case Report of Conventional Solid Ameloblastoma presenting with Non-Classical Features
KS Ganapathy, S Latha, Anuj Paul Maini
July-September 2005, 17(3):114-118
Ameloblastomas constitute approximately 1 percent of all cysts and tumors of the jaws. The occurrence in the mandible is four times higher than in the maxilla; in the mandible there is a predilection for the molar-ramus area with a little more than two-thirds occurring in this region. The tumor is relatively uncommon anteriorly. The average age of occurrences is in the third or fourth decade. They can grow quite large without metastasizing. The selection of treatment for an individual ameloblastoma depends to a large extent on its clinical type i. e. whether the tumor is a typical intraosseous solid or Multicystic ameloblastoma with poorly defined margins. Other factors of importance are its location in the jaws and its size, the age of the patient and patients availability for follow up examination.

Interferons are a family of proteins and glycoproteins that have a variety of biologic actions. Interferons were first discovered in 1957 and several clinical trials have been conducted since then to unravel the action and clinical applications of different types of interferons. This paper reviews the mechanism of action and clinical uses of different types of interferons.

CASE REPORTS
Arteriovenous Malformation of The Mandible : A Rare Case Report
Hitarthi Kubavat, Bhavin Dudhia, Pritesh Ruparelia
July-September 2005, 17(3):125-128
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are extremely rare conditions that can result from congenital or acquired abnormalities in the structure of blood vessels. They are potentially fatal. AVMs may be asymtomatic or may show various signs and symptoms including soft tissue swellings, pain, changes in skin and mucosal colour, erythematous and bleeding gingiva, bruit and paresthesia. Radiographically, there are no pathognomic features. The present case illustrates an AVM in a 25-year-old male with history of trauma to mandible and no characteristic signs (except a swelling) suggesting AVM.

Osteosarcoma of The Maxilla : A Case Report
Mandavi S Garud, Ani John, HR Umarji
July-September 2005, 17(3):110-113
Osteosarcoma is a common malignant lesion of the long bones and occurs rarely in the jaw. In comparison to the mandible it is a rarity in the maxilla. Diagnosed based on the radiographic and histologic findings, jaw osteosarcoma has an increased 5 year survival rate and low incidence of metastasis as compared to that of the long bones. Patients with jaw osteosarcoma can be remarkably treated with a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. One such case of a maxillary osteosarcoma is presented here.
