Abstracts dysplasia of the mandible, as diagnosed by radiographs and histopathologic analysis, during childhood period is presented. The patient had a painless mass of the lower jaw of 2-year duration measuring 20 cm  25 cm which was surgically excised. This case illustrates the need for Head and Neck practitioners to formulate a broad differential diagnosis in pediatric craniofacial masses. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijporl.2006.01.022

1833 associated with genetic syndromes. The true bifid epiglottis has been distinguished in the past from an epiglottis that is notched or has a submucous cleft, as the latter was not felt to be related to other congenital anomalies. Presented are two cases of bifid epiglottis, one with a complete cleft, and one with a submucous cleft; both children had associated abnormalities. The implications of bifid epiglottis and associated syndromes are discussed. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijporl.2006.01.024

In this report, a case of angioleiomyoma in the posterior mandibular area was presented, and aetiological, clinical, radiographical, histological characteristics and treatment modalities of the lesion were discussed.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, La Paz Hospital, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain b Department of Pathology, La Paz Hospital, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain c Department of Radiology, La Paz Hospital, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain d La Paz Hospital, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain We report a very unusual case of a liver transplanted child referred to our Department under clinical suspicion of malignancy. The patient underwent an adenotonsillectomy under general anesthesia without perioperative problems. The post-operative pathological diagnosis was follicular hyperplasia. Six months later, the patient had a progressive impairment of his breathing. Oropharyngeal examination and magnetic resonance imaging showed a cyst mass hanging behind the soft palate. The patient was scheduled for excision-biopsy of the cystic mass, which was performed without complications. Pathologic diagnosis of the tissue removed in this second operation was granulation tissue. The child is alive and well 5 years after the last surgical procedure. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijporl.2006.01.025
