Abstract

PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 1 

David I. Chenault, MD, Houston  A 62-year-old man had a three-week history of oral cavity pain and a large mass in the left buccal mucosa and lower alveolar ridge (Fig 1). He had a history of smoking one pack of cigarettes each day for 50 years, and illfitting dentures since 1964, but no history of chewing tobacco or dipping snuff. The wide-view roentgenogram (Panorex) showed no mandibular involvement, and there was no evidence of regional or distant metastasis. A deep biopsy specimen was taken (Fig 2 and 3). A tracheostomy and wide, local excision of the lesion with a dermal graft inlay were performed (Fig 4).What is your diagnosis and treatment?

PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 2 

Jaime A. Tschen, MD, Houston  A 45-year-old woman initially had the chief complaint of a "bump on my left cheek." She noticed a mass that was anterior to her left
