Desmoplastic ameloblastoma (DA) a rare type of ameloblastoma, arises from the rests of dental lamina, developing enamel organ, epithelial lining of odontogenic cyst or from the basal cells of the oral mucosa. Clinically, DA develops as a slow growing, painless, bony hard swelling resulting in facial asymmetry. Histologically, it represents stromal collagenization or desmoplasia with small nests and strands of odontogenic epithelium. But the true biologic profile of DA is not well understood as they mimic fibro-osseous lesions clinico-radiographically. As DA is a rare entity,we aim to discuss three case reports of DA from a single institution which deserves pre-eminence owing to its distinct site, radiological and histological features, local aggressiveness and high chance of false clinical appearance. Desmoplasia is an inductive phenomenon occurring in the mesenchymal tissue of the head and neck region. The pathologist and the clinician should be aware of the concepts and the association with malignant transformation and spread of the lesion in order to deliver appropriate treatment.

Backround: Mental foramen present on anterolateral surface of mandible &provide passage
for nerve and vessels.
Methods: Present study was carried out in department of anatomy on 50 dry adult mandibles
from F.H. medical college Agra & Autonomous state medical college Shahjahanpur.
Results: Position of mental foramenin the line with second premolar 64% on right side& 70%
on left side, between second premolar & first molar 10% right side & 14% on left side, between
first and second premolar 18% right side & 4% left side and in the line with first premolar
absent on right side & 4% on left side.

Background:
Distraction osteogenesis (DO) has become a well known useful procedure now-a-days in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery, as we know initially this technique was used in the limbs, that is in the long bones but slowly thanks to its success in that area it potentiated the use of this procedure in the mandible, then gradually into the maxilla and now it has become a widely used procedure in the cranio- maxillofacial deformities. This review aims to provide an insight into the role of distraction osteogenesis in the cranio- maxillofacial deformities.
Conclusion:
The patients with cranio- maxillofacial deformities has more functional problems, poor aesthetics, muscular imbalance, improper oral hygiene, and sequelae of problems will follow it. So, distraction osteogenesis has become boon for those patients with such deformities. Distraction osteogenesis procedure has clinically showed that it is a versatile technique that it can performed with orthognathic surgery with proper planning and also supports the surgical treatment of tmj ankylosis by relaxing the airway obstruction caused by it. The worthiness of this procedure increases day by day in modern surgery and is definitely a key in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Brown’s tumour is a special rare localized giant cell related tumour which arises as a consequence of the raised parathyroid hormone. Apart from other bones in body, in facial aspect the mandible is the most predominant site in the compared to maxillary involvement. Brown’s tumour, usually manifest as osteolytic activity and gross distortion in the bones including maxillofacial bone,this suggests the necessity of timely diagnosis and timelyaccurate management. Here we report afemale patient of 37 years presented with a soft tissue swelling in the gum of rightside of the mandible along with hard tissue involvement of left side as the foremost appearance of main hyperparathyroidism, because of underlying parathyroid adenoma.
