Which autoimmune disease shows positive indirect immunofluorescence in the majority of cases?  
 Pemphigus vulgaris – direct immunofluorescence is also used.     Indirect immunofluorescence = pt’s blood on monkey tissue to show antibodies in blood     Both pemphigoid and erosive lichen planus require direct IF since there is not much circulating antibodies     in the blood to be detected by indirect IF.

B. Multiple Ulcers
C. White Plaques and Patches
D. Red Macules and Patches
E. Red and White Macules and Patches

treatment and prognosis for adenoid cystic carcinoma
- solid histology pattern has worse prognosis than tubular/swiss cheese pattern
- worst prognosis for tumors arising in submandibular gland or maxillary sinus

True! But necrotizing sialometaplasia is most commonly found on the palate.
T/F: Squamous cell carcinoma is not usually found on the palate.
acute apical periodontis
In ___ ___ ___ is not sensitive to thermal since pulp is necrotic, but may have thermal sensitivity due to remaining pulp being vital (multi-rooted tooth).
