Pages: 52-59
PMID: 9656899

Pain began within 6 months following treatment in 10 of 12 patients and was progressive in 11 of 12 patients. Six patients died from recurrence, five within 2 years following onset of pain. No clear indication of malignant disease was evident despite clinical examination, plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography. Pain was often mistaken for denture irritation. Frequently, no area of irritation was apparent.
