Syndromes of head and neck region associated with gingival findings
AUTHOR(S): Manjeeta Mahesh Sinai Dhume and Clarence Pascoal Dias
ABSTRACT:The part of the oral mucosa that covers the alveolar processes of the jaws and also surrounds the neck of the teeth is known as gingiva. The word syndrome is derived from the Greek syn (together) and dromos (running) and refers to a ‘running together’ or concurrence of symptoms. Even after taking into account local inflammatory conditions and drug use, occasional instances with a syndromic origin have been recorded. Present review tries to combine the relevant features of syndromes associated with gingival findings into a systemic review.
