A history of a congenital bilateral hallux valgus is common and is an early indication of this autosomal‐dominant disease (Figs 2‐22a and 2‐22b).  Among the most prominent may be wrist calcifications, jaw openings of less than 5 mm interincisally, foreshortening and malformation of the metatarsals and phalanges of the great toe (hallux valgus), and an inability to bend the trunk due to paraspinous ossifications.  The disease may be transmitted as an autosomal‐dominant trait, but most cases are believed to represent new mutations.

An inflammatory infiltrate is present within the supporting fibrous tissue.  High‐power view of a pyogenic granuloma showing the prominent endothelial cells lining the dilated capillaries.  A feeding vessel can be seen in the center of the field.  A so‐called pulp polyp can be seen in this open caries lesion in a permanent first molar.  The peripheral ossifying fibroma will be more firm and have a less friable nature than the other two lesions.  The associated teeth are usually not mobile.  The variant that shows odontogenic epithelium within it, ie, the peripheral odontogenic fibroma, is also not surprising, since rests of Malassez are rather abundant in the periodontal ligament and can easily become incorporated into lesions arising from the periodontal ligament.
