Protuberant fibro-osseous lesion of the temporal bone, otherwise known as "Bullough's lesion", is a rare, benign exophytic fibro-osseous tumor. In this brief report, we present a case of a 61-year-old woman with a history of a right-sided skull mass that had been increasing in size for approximately 6 years before presentation. Clinical, radiological and histological features are examined and discussed. We achieved excellent results with surgical resection, with no evidence of recurrence.

We describe the case of a 33 years old woman with a history of over 15 years of a slow growing firm osseous-like right retroauricular mass. Surgical resection was easily performed using a sharp techni...
Primary bone lymphoma without classic nodal lesions or advanced disease may be mistaken for other osseous diseases, especially when involving a single bone site. In this patient, a series of imaging m...
Osseous choristoma is a rare entity in the oral and maxillofacial region. The most common site is the tongue, followed by the buccal mucosa. Osseous choristoma of the muscle is unusual and few cases h...
Osseous defects of the jaw occurs naturally by pathological conditions such as infections, tumors, cysts or iatrogenic causes induced during surgical treatment of preexisting periradicular bony pathol...
Ewing's sarcoma (ES) is a rare, highly malignant anaplastic stem cell tumor. Histologically, the tumor consists of uniform densely packed small monomorphic cells with round nuclei. The typical appeara...
Sometime osseous reconstruction needs allogeneic bone, in this study we use Ostéopure™ from Ostéobanque d'Auvergne, which is a osseous matrix. However Ostéopure™ integration lasts a ...
Results of growth factors indicate that Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP) have an exceptional ability to stimulate different characteristics of mesenchymale cells to osseous cells. Local a...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the bone formation potential of 400µg alendronate delivered in β-TCP in the treatment of periodontal intra-osseous defects.
The purpose of this study is to examine for changes in the bone scan after treating with zoledronic acid (Zometa™). This study is designed to show if intravenous (IV) bisphosphonates, wh...
Inadequate ridge width to allow implant placement, it noted that when extraction takes place and ridge preservation is not utilized the site of extraction could lose 40% to 60% of bone hei...
The dense rock-like part of temporal bone that contains the INNER EAR. Petrous bone is located at the base of the skull. Sometimes it is combined with the MASTOID PROCESS and called petromastoid part of temporal bone.
A type of osseous tissue which makes up the inner part of bone. It has a spongy, honeycomb-like structure with struts or trabecula and contains the BONE MARROW. It has higher rate of BONE REMODELING turnover than CORTICAL BONE.
A fibro-osseous hereditary disease of the jaws. The swollen jaws and raised eyes give a cherubic appearance; multiple radiolucencies are evident upon radiographic examination.
An irregular unpaired bone situated at the SKULL BASE and wedged between the frontal, temporal, and occipital bones (FRONTAL BONE; TEMPORAL BONE; OCCIPITAL BONE). Sphenoid bone consists of a median body and three pairs of processes resembling a bat with spread wings. The body is hollowed out in its inferior to form two large cavities (SPHENOID SINUS).
The compartment containing the anterior extremities and half the inferior surface of the temporal lobes (TEMPORAL LOBE) of the cerebral hemispheres. Lying posterior and inferior to the anterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, ANTERIOR), it is formed by part of the TEMPORAL BONE and SPHENOID BONE. It is separated from the posterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR) by crests formed by the superior borders of the petrous parts of the temporal bones.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
