A radiographic study on resorption of tooth root associated with malignant tumors

resorption of alveolar bone (site of tumor invasion): 1. alveolar-margin type 2. root-apex type.
resorption of tooth root: 1. spike type 2. knife-edge type.
The root resorption rate for all cases was 43% (31/72). (There were 19 squamous cell carcinomas, 2 adenoid cystic carcinomas, 3 malignant lymphomas, 2 metastatic tumors, 1 poorly differentiated carcinoma, 3 undifferentiated carcinomas and 1 fibrosarcoma.) Root resorption rate of alveolar-margin-type tumors was 37% (19/51), and that of the root-apex-type tumors was 57% (12/21). All alveolar-margin-type tumors showed spike-type root resorption, and all root-apex-type tumors were of the knife-edge type except 1 case. Our study suggested that root resorption associated with malignant tumors is not rare and that the shape of root resorption may be related to the site of tumor invasion. In the case of root resorption with resorption of alveolar bone, it is important to take malignant tumors into consideration as well as other diseases.
