Abstract

Aim: To investigate and compare the expression of the pathogen recognition receptors Toll-like receptor (TLR) 2 and TLR4, and the hard tissue resorption triad osteoprotegerin (OPG)-receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL)-receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (RANK) in external inflammatory root resorption of endodontic origin (ER) and external cervical root resorption (ECR) by immunohistochemistry. Methodology: Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded archival specimens collected from teeth that were diagnosed clinically, radiographically and histopathologically with either ER (n = 9) or ECR (n = 9) were processed for immunohistochemistry to investigate and compare levels of TLR2, TLR4, OPG, RANKL, RANK, CD3, CD19 and CD83 expression. The histological features were evaluated via haematoxylin and eosin stain. Taylor's modification of the Brown and Brenn Gram stain was used for examining the presence and distribution of bacteria. All stained slides were digitally photographed and qualitatively analysed, and F test and unpaired Student's t-test were used for statistical analysis. Results: Both ER and ECR showed similar immuno-histopathology characteristics of a fibrovascular connective tissue with varying degrees of inflammatory infiltrate consisting of T and B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, polymorphonuclear lymphocytes and plasma cells. Colonies of bacteria were identified in the majority of lesions, and this correlated with the cellular expression of TLR2 and TLR4 in all lesions. Similarly, all lesions showed a significantly higher (P
