  44. Neutropenia
    • (neutrophils below 1500 / mm3) in an adult 
    • -Drugs (bone marrow toxicity or other mechanisms), infections or B12 deficiency - increase in susceptibility of patient to bacterial infections
    • -Infection of the oral mucosa may be the initial sign of the disease
    • -NORMALLY lower neutrophils in Africans and middle Eastern  benign ethic neutropenia
    • -Oral lesions consist of ulcerations usually shows a reduced number OR absence of neutrophils
    • -Bacterial invasion of host tissue may be apparent in some instances
    • Bone loss in a patient with neutropenia! -Biopsy specimen of neutropenic ulceration usually shows a reduced number or absence of neutrophils
    • -Bacterial invasion of host tissue maybe apparent in some instances
  45. Agranulocytosis
    • -granulocytic series, particularly neutrophils are absent
    • -decreased production or increased destruction 
    • -diopathic but MOST are caused by exposure to one or several drugs (anti hemotherapeutic agents inhibit normal mitotic division and maturation of HPSC, other drugs trigger an immunologic reaction that results in destruction of granulocytes) -Typically develops within a few days after a person ingests the offending drug
    • -Oral lesions are common and include necrotizing, deep, punched-out ulcerations of the buccal mucosa, tongue and palate. Gingivae are especially susceptible to infection, often resembling the pattern of necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (NUG)
    • - NO or FEW granulocytes in the tissue **STOP THE OFFENDING MEDICATION as reasonably as possible!!
  46. cyclic neutropenia
    • -RARE idiopathic
    • periodic reduction in the neutrophil(4 weeks)
    • infections ulcerating necrotizing lesion of the gingiva.
    • Severe periodontitis is NOT explained by local factors.
    • Bone loss stimulating perio disease
    • -Does not occur in rather uniformly spaced episodes USUALLY a 21 day cycle
    • -Recurrent episodes of fever, anorexia, cervical lymphadenopathy, malaise, pharyngitis, and oral mucosal ulcerations
    • -Other GI mucosal areas include colon, rectum, and anus may be affected by recurrent ulcerations
    • -Similar to those of neutropenic and granulocytopic ulcerations IF biopsy is preformed during nadir of neutrophil count
    • DIAGNOSIS is- Established by sequential complete blood counts (typically 2-3x/wk for 8 wks) to determine whether cycling of neutrophil levels occurs
    • -Supportive care in form of optimal oral hygiene
    • -Symptoms seem to diminish after 2nd decade of life even though cycling continues
  47. thrombocytopenia
    • Decreased number of circulating blood platelets (formed elements derived from megakaryocyte precursors in the bone marrow)
    • -Normal platelet count: 200,000-400,000/ mm3 
    • Cause: Reduced production, increased destruction, sequestration in the spleen
    • Special types: 
    • -Severity of involvement is directly related to EXTENT of platelet reduction
    • -Detected because of presence of oral lesions
    • -Minor traumatic events are continuously inflected on oral mucosa during CHEWING and Swallowing – capillaries are damaged during this process and sealed off w/ microscopic thrombi (thrombi are not formed properly—pinpoint hemorrhagic lesions—petechial or bruises or hematomas)
    • -Spontaneous gingival hemorrhages or bleeding from minor trauma
    • -Similar hemorrhagic events occur throughout the body
    • -Severe thrombocytopenia  massive bleeding from GI or urinary tract is fatal, epistaxis, hemoptosis (significant pulmonary hemorrhage), intracranial hemorrhage is also fatal OTHER INFO (since there are not x-rays)
    • --Idiopathic (immune) thrombocytopenia (ITP) – childhood, classically after nonspecific viral infection, symptoms appear quickly and severely, most cases resolve spontaneously within 4-6 weeks, and 90% of patients recover by 3-6 months
    • --TTP—thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura
  48. Polycythemia Vera
    • -RARE idiopathic hematologic disorder that is best thought of as an increase in the MASS of the RED blood cells
    • - Increased blood viscosity (and increased platelets) leads to thrombus formation (TIA, CVA, and MI)
    • Immediate attempt to reduce red blood cell mass
  49. Leukemia
    • malignancies of HPSC derivation
    • -malignant transformation of one of the stem cells 00> which initially proliferates in the bone marrow and eventually overflows into the peripheral blood of the affected person
    • -Problems arise when the leukemic cells crowd out the normal defense cells and erythrocytes
    • ORGIN: Myeloid  several different pathways produce malignant cells show features of granulocytosis or monocytes, and less frequently, erythrocytes or megakaryocytes
    •  Lymphoblastic/ lymphics
    • -Chronic myeloid leukemia: Chromosome abnormalities (Philadelphia chromosome) Acute: if untreated run an aggressive course and often result in DEATH w/ in moths, acute lymphoblastic leukemia of childhood can be controlled
    • Chronic: follow more indolent course, end result is the same
    • -MANY of the clinical signs are related to marked REDUCTION in the numbers of normal WBC and RBC due to crowding out of normal HPSC by malignant proliferation (myelophthistic anemia)  fatigue, easy trying, dyspnea on mild exertion (reduced red blood cell count), malignant cells may also infiltrate other organs and often cause splenomegaly, hepatomegaly and lymphadenopathy
    • -Easy bruising and bleeding (lack of blood platelets due to megakaryocytes being crowded out of the marrow)
    • -Petechial hemorrhages in the posterior hard palate and soft palate, spontaneous gingival hemorrhage (esp w/ platelet counts less than 10,000-20,000/mm3
    • -Ulceration of the oral mucosa (impaired to fight bact) – bact around teeth, herpetic infections most common are viral lesions and involve oral mucosa rather than being confided to keratinized mucosa as in immunecompentent pts
    • -soft tissue tumor (leukemia)  usually from myelomonocytic type of leukemia -Diffuse infiltration and destruction of normal host tissue by sheets of poorly differentiated cells with either myelomono-cytic characteristics or lymphoid features -Confirm the presence of poorly differentiated leukemia cells in the peripheral blood and bone marrow
    • -Classifying the type of leukemia requires establishing the immune-phenotype by using immunehisto-chemistry
    • markers to identify cell surface antigens expressed by the tumor cells - Chemo  destroy as many atypical cells in a short time to induce remission (HIGH DOSES)
    • -Remission has induced, stage must be maintained (maintenance chemo –LOWER dose long time period)
    • -New treatment- monoclonal antibodies against surface antigens CD20
    • -Prognosis depends o the pt age and the cytogenic alteration
    • -Chronic myeloid leukemia—neoplastic goes to blast transformation less differentiated and pt dies 3-6 mo.
    • -Chronic lymphocytic leukemia – incurable, but course is highly variable and depends on the stage of the disease, patients with limited disease have average survival time of >10 years
  50. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
    • -Neoplastic cells (Reed-Sternberg cells  B- cell origin) make up only about 1-3% of the cells in the enlarged lymph nodes that characterize this condition 
    • -Linked to EBV
    • - Almost always begins in lymph nodes, Most common sites of initial presentation are cervical and supraclavicular nodes or axillary and mediastinal nodes
    • -Usual presenting sign is identification by patient of persistently enlarging, nontender, discrete mass or masses in one lymph node region
    • -Early stages: involved lymph nodes often rather movable
    • -As condition progresses: nodes become more matted and fixed to the surrounding tissues
    • -If untreated: condition spreads to other lymph node groups and eventually involves the spleen and other extra lymphatic tissues, such as bone, liver, and lung
    • -Oral involvement is rare
    • -About 30% of patients have weight loss, fever, night sweats, and generalized pruritis (itching) - absence of these symptoms = better prognosis (staging)
    • -Category A = no systemic signs
    • -Category B = systemic signs
    • -Reed-Sternberg cells with “owl-eye” nucleus -Successful treatment!!
    • Prognosis fairly good (best treatment results in early stages)
    • -Stage I or II: 80-90% relapse free 10year survival rate
    • -Stage III or IV: 55-75% 10 year survival rate
  51. Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
    • -Include a diverse and complex group of malignancies of lymphoreticular histogenesis and differentiation
    • -Initially arise within lymph nodes and tend to grow as solid masses
    • - Contrasts with lymphocytic leukemias, which begin in the bone marrow and are characterized by a large proportion of malignant cells that circulate in the peripheral blood
    • -Most commonly originate from cells of the B-lymphocyte series
    • -T-lymphocyte derivation less common, true histiocyte-derived lymphomas even rarer
    • -Bacteria can induce formation of MALT lymphoma of the stomach
    • -Antibiotic treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection usually cures it
    • -Most commonly develop in lymph nodes but there are extra nodal varieties
    • -Nodal: Nontender mass that has been slowly enlarging for months, Lesion typically involves a local lymph node collection (i.e. cervical, axillary, or inguinal nodes); one or two freely movable nodules are noticed initially, As malignancy progresses: nodes become more numerous and are fixed to adjacent structures or matted together. Gradually, process involves other lymph node groups, and invasion of adjoining normal tissues occurs
    • -Extra nodal: In oral cavity, lymphoma usually is extra nodal. Oral lesions are often component of more widely disseminated disease, although sometimes lymphoma begins in oral tissues. Malignancy may develop in the oral soft tissues or centrally within the jaws. Soft tissue lesions appear as nontender, diffuse swellings
    • -Staging is adopted from Hodgkin's lymphoma Lesional cells of lymphoma consisting of population of poorly differentiated cells of the lymphocytic series with minimal cytoplasm -Low grade lymphomas - controversial in treatment
    • -Some recommend no particular treatment because tumor is slow growing and tend to recur despite chemo-therapy
    • -Watch and wait strategy (usually arise in older adults and median survival rate is 8-10 years)
    • Approximately 40% transform into high-grade lymphoma  patient's demise
  52. Burkitt’s Lymphoma
    • endemic EBV-related;
    • chromosomal translocation.
    • -Malignancy of B-lymphocyte origin that represent an undifferentiated lymphoma
    • -It is mostly kids, mostly presents in jaws, usually in the posterior.
    • -Multiple quadrants may be involved -Radiograph: malignant process with destruction of bone with ragged, ill-defined margins
    • - 4-year old child had evidence of bone destruction with tooth mobility in all four quadrants of his jaws. Note patchy, ill-defined loss of bone
    • -Almost 100% of the cells are in the process of replicating.
    • -Classic "starry-sky" appearance (interspersed histiocytic cells with abundant cytoplasm ("stars") set against a background of malignant, darkly staining lymphoma cells ("night sky"))
    • -Undifferentiated, small, dark lesional cells with numerous histiocytes
    • -High 5 year event free survival!!
  53. Multiple Myeloma
    • -Relatively uncommon malignancy of plasma cell origin that often appears to have multicentric origin within bone
    • -Cause of condition is unknown, although sometimes a plasmacytoma may evolve into multiple myeloma
    • -Abnormal plasma cells that compose this tumor are typically monoclonal
    • -Probably arise from single malignant precursor that has undergone uncontrolled mitotic division and has spread through the body -Because neoplasm develops from a single cell, all the daughter cells that comprise the lesional tissue have the same genetic makeup and produce the same proteins
    • -Proteins are the immunoglobulin components that the plasma cells would normally produce, although in the case of this malignant tumor the immunoglobulin are normal or functional
    • -Signs and symptoms of this disease result from the uncontrolled proliferation of the tumor cells and uncontrolled manufacture of their protein products
    • - Renal failure (kidneys become overburdened with the excess circulating light chain proteins of the tumor cells):
    • - 15% of patients show deposition of amyloid in various soft tissues of the body may be the initial manifestation of the disease
    • -Amyloid deposits are due to accumulation of abnormal light chain proteins
    • -Sites classically affected include: oral mucosa, tongue (diffuse enlargement and firmness and nodular appearance) -Multiple, well-defined, punched-out radiolucencies or ragged radiolucent lesions
    • -Especially evident on skull film
    • -Jaws involved in up to 30% of cases
    • -Radiolucent areas contain abnormal plasma cell proliferations that characterize multiple myeloma
    • - Sheets of malignant plasma cells with eccentric nuclei and stippled nuclear chromatin. Immunohisto-chemical studies show uniform reaction of the lesional cells for antibodies directed against kappa light chains, indicating a monoclonal neoplastic proliferation
    • Bence Jones proteins = light chain proteins found in 30-50% of patients (due to the RENAL failure)
    • - Even histo-pathologic and radiographic findings strongly suggest multiple myeloma, should screen serum or urine by protein electrophoresis
    • Bisphosphanates are prescribed to prevent pain from pathologic fractures. Bisphosphanates do not increase survival. BRONJ may occur. Prognosis is generally poor.
  54. Plasma-cytoma
    -Unifocal, monoclonal, neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells that usually arises within bone -IMPORTANT: may give rise to multiple myeloma!!!!!!
    • I: Single lymph node region or single extralymphatic organ or site
    • II: 2+ lymph node regions on the same side of the diaphragm or 1+ lymph node regions with extralymphatic site
    • III: Lymph node regions on both sides of the diaphragm possibly with extralymphatic organ or site, the spleen, or both
    • IV: Diffuse or disseminated involvement of one or more extralymphatic organs
  56. Oral mucosa resistance factors?
    • SSE (strat squam epi)
    • cytokines
    • high density capillaries
    • saliva (IgA, SLPI)
    • mucins, agglutins, PRP, , cystatins, etc
    • hypotonic effect
  57. meth mouth
    • xerostomia
    • grinding
    • poor OHI
    • diet, GI
    • contaminated ingredients acid, lye
  58. HIV screening guidlines
    • all health care setting (opt out)
    • annual check for high risk
    • separate consent should no longer be required
    • prevention counseling also should not be required as part of screening]
    • facilities with > 0.1 % HIV prevalence
  59. controlling methods of HIV spread
    • ARV pregnant
    • nPEP (non occupational)
    • PrEP (pre-exposure)
  60. rapid HIV test what fluid?
    • oral exudate not just saliva
    • must be confirmed with Western Blot
  61. Bleeding disorders Vascular Defects
    • Vascular purpuras: Excessive corticosteroids - Cushing's disease or exogenous
    • Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome)
    • :Autosomal dominant inherited telangiectases of mucous membranes leading to bleeding from mucous membranes -e.g., epistaxis, gastrointestinal bleeds, gingival bleeds
    • Encephalotrigeminal Angiomatosis (Sturge Weber Angiomatosis)
    • Rare, nonhereditary disease involving hamartomatous
    • vascular proliferation in the tissues of brain and face
    • Capillary malformations are called “port wine stains”, CNS angiomas lead to mental retardation, hemiparesis,
    • seizures

    • Vitamin C. deficiency
    • ¡Results in impaired collagen synthesis
    • resulting in bleeding gums, perifollicular
    • hemorrhages
