Analysis of the frequency and nature of hyaline ring granulomas in inflammatory odontogenic cysts
International Endodontic Journal, 05/29/2012
Henriques ACG et al. – The present results suggest a very low frequency of hyaline ring granulomas (HRGs) in inflammatory odontogenic cysts and supports the hypothesis that these structures arise from the implantation of foreign material, most likely food particles of plant or vegetable origin. The diverse microscopic features of HRG possibly represent different developmental stages of this structure.
