Clinical and Pathohistological Profiles of Chronic Odontogenic Infections with Microvascular Proliferation in Children with Permanent Dentition
Abstract: The apical periodontitis as an infection is the result of endodontic infections and is manifested when the immunological system of the host is activated from microorganisms which penetrate in to the dental pulp through the root canals. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical diagnosis and the pathohistological identification of chronic odontogenic infections with microvascular proliferation. The study was carried out in University Dental Clinical Center of Kosova in cooperation with Histopathology Departement. In this study were included 36 children between 10 - 15 years old, 20 girls and 16 boys, with permanent dentition and chronic apical changes. After the clinical and x-ray examination, the tooth extraction was done, and then the tissue of periapical region was taken, by the exvaction of the periapical granulomas and the other pathological tissues. From a total of 36 children with chronic apical changes and granulomas, 9 (25.0%) of the children had chronic apical periodontitis, from which 6 (16.67%) of the children did not have microvascular proliferation, 1 (2.78%) child had a medium level of microvascular proliferation and 2 (5.56%) children had signification microvascular changes (proliferation). A total of 6 (16.67%) children had chronic apical periodontitis with a fistula from which 5 (13.89%) children did not have microvascular proliferation and 1 (2.78%) child had a medium level of microvascular proliferation. A total of 5 (13.89%) children had chronic apical periodontitis with parulis, from which 3 (8.33%) children did not have microvascular proliferation, 1 (2.78%) child had a low level of microvascular proliferation and 1 (2.78%) child had severe microvascular proliferation.
