Abstract

One of the enigmas in cell differentiation process is prosoplasia, which is contemplated as forward differentiation. A well-known example of prosoplastic switch is mucous cell prosoplasia, which is the transformation of a simple squamous epithelial cell into mucous secreting cell. Numerous theories have been proposed for histogenesis of this phenomenon, which are comprehensively discussed in the present paper. Oral pathologies like odontogenic cysts and salivary gland tumours show mucous prosoplasia quite often; sometimes leading to diagnostic difficulties. In the present paper, efforts have been made to comprehensively discuss diverse aspects of mucous prosoplasia like histogenesis, theories and diagnostic importance in various oral pathologies.

Keywords
