(jū'vĕ-nil per'ē-ō-don-tī'tis) [MIM*170650]
Degenerative periodontal disease of adolescents in which periodontal destruction is out of proportion to local irritating factors present on adjacent teeth; inflammatory changes become superimposed, and bone loss, migration, and extrusion are observed. Two forms are recognized: localized, in which the destruction is limited to the incisors and first molars; and generalized, involving all teeth.
Synonym(s): localized juvenile periodontitis, periodontosis.

localized juvenile periodontitis (LJP),

n a type of aggressive periodontitis that presents as a localized periodontal tissue breakdown in prepubertal children in the primary or mixed dentition stage, apparently resulting from gingival pocket infection with
A. actinomycetemcomitans. See also juvenile periodontitis.
