AUTHOR(S): Mahabaleshwara CH, Sahya S Lal, Kiruba Shankar K, Sneha Kulkarni and Mohammed Basim B
ABSTRACT:Intra alveolar carcinoma of the jaw is rare and a unique entity among the group of malignant tumors of the jaws. They are usually asymptomatic untill they become quite large and also represent the area of greatest histological diversity. Here we report two cases of intra alveolar carcinoma, who presented with ulcer proliferative growth. Histopathological diagnosis was Squamous cell carcinoma. Diagnosis of intra alveolar carcinoma through microscopic examination of serial specimen sections is required to rule out the presence of odontogenic tumor cells The definitive diagnosis of intra alveolar carcinoma is very difficult because the lesion must be distinguished from tumors that have metastasized to the jaws from distant sites especially from tumors of maxillary sinus origin. In conclusion, our case reports showed that clinicians must be aware that intra alveolar carcinoma may initially present as routine dental problems that leads to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis.
