PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Comment to an unsual neoplasm

It is an undoubtely interesting and unusual odontogenic neoplasm.
I have some comments.
1. Unfortunately, this case is not well documented since clinical and radiographic images were not included.
2. I can not understand why authors did not give treatment to metastatic tumors.
3. An explanation for the finding that metastaic lesions were controled without treatment is necessary and important for readers.
4.- I have no explanation for this finding and my expert colleagues have not too. Some of them said "it is imposible".
5. No survival data is offered. It is also inportant and interesting.
Sincerely yours.
