ObjectiveTo describe the clinical and genetic features of patients with cherubism. Material and MethodsA descriptive analysis of 14 cases from nine different families was carried out. Clinicopathological, imaging, and follow-up data were retrieved from patients' medical files and correlated with the genetic profile of each patient. Genomic DNA isolated from buccal mucosa cells was subjected to direct sequencing analysis of the SH3BP2 gene. ResultsFemales were more affected than males (8:6), and the mean age at diagnosis was 8.6years (range 3-30years). Eleven patients exhibited simultaneous bilateral involvement of the maxilla and mandible. Two patients did not have a familial history of cherubism. Progressive growth pattern was found in six patients and stable lesions were observed in other seven patients, whereas in one patient, complete spontaneous remission was documented during the follow-up (31years). Mutations were found in 13 cases and included the typical heterozygous missense mutations R415Q, P418T, and P418H at exon 9 of SH3BP2. No correlation between the mutations and the clinical manifestations was observed. ConclusionThree different point mutations in the SH3BP2 gene were detected with variable clinical involvement. Genotype-phenotype association studies in larger population with cherubism are necessary to provide important knowledge about molecular mechanisms related to the disease. (AU)
