The expression of fibroblast growth factor-2 and fibroblast growth factor receptor-1 in chondrocytes in synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint. report of two cases



The expression of fibroblast growth factor-2 and fibroblast growth factor receptor-1 in chondrocytes in synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint. report of two cases



International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 31(5): 532-536



Synovial chondromatosis (SC) is a rare, benign condition characterized by the formation of metaplastic cartilaginous nodules. The expression of fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) and fibroblast growth factor receptor-1 (FGFR-1) in two cases of SC of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) were immunohistochemically studied. The possible roles of FGF-2 and FGFR-1 in SC of the TMJ are discussed.
