Summary of "Intraoral granulocytic sarcoma as a manifestation of myelofibrosis: A case report and review of the literature."

Granulocytic sarcoma (GS) is an extramedullary tumor associated with myelodysplastic syndromes or myeloproliferative diseases. Intraoral manifestations are considered uncommon, with a reasonable number of cases, and are mostly related to leukemia. The association of oral GS and myelofibrosis is very rare and only three cases have been published. In this paper, we report the fourth case of oral lesion in a patient with a diagnosis of myelofibrosis. The aim of this study was to present a review of the literature, discussing the current and previous cases of oral GS associated with myelofibrosis or other hematological disorders and the importance of accurate diagnosis through clinical, microscopic, and immunohistochemical features.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Examination of the mouth and teeth toward the identification and diagnosis of intraoral disease or manifestation of non-oral conditions.

An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
