Often dermatologists are confronted with findings in the oral cavity that present prior to well-developed or classical skin manifestations but are unsure of what these findings may indicate. Oral Pathology for the Dermatologist provides the dermatologist, resident, and fellow with specific clues to the diagnosis of systemic disease or cutaneous disorders, including oral cavity lesions of uncertain significance, of malignant potential, or with unusual clinical features. A perfect reference for dermatologists and dermatology residents and fellows alike, it is complete with hundreds of high quality color clinical oral pathology photographs that appear on dermatology in-service and board exams. Additionally, the book includes tables to summarize the distinguishing features of conditions which appear clinically similar and uses diagnostics and management algorithms wherever possible. Providing information on lesions that arise from the structures of the oral cavity, Oral Pathology for the Dermatologist offers an organized approach to understanding oral anatomy, considerations in oral biopsy, and approaches to differential diagnosis of oral cavity lesions. The only reference of its kind dedicated to oral pathology for the dermatologist, this book is written jointly by oral health specialists and dermatologists/dermatopathologists, giving the clinician streamlined terminology and improving clarification of concepts.
