Lesion du jour....holy cow!!
Hi Dr. Barnett,
this is the PAN for the lesion on the lower left jaw that we looked at today.
56 year old male referred for endo tx #3 from GP.
Hx of Thyroid problems and Glaucoma and taking Synthroid, Wellbutrin and Alphagan.
Dear Fred: Clearly it needs a biopsy. Diff. dx includes keratocyst, ameloblastoma,
giant cell lesion etc. According to Oral Path, clinically if there is not much
appreciable cortical expansion, I would favor a keratocyst. Please let me know
what the biopsy result is. Thanks. - Jorge Vera
