Full color for the first time! Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect new advances in knowledge, this popular resource presents a practical approach to over 350 diseases of the oral mucosa, and jaws. It offers detailed guidance on etiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, histopathology, differential diagnosis, and treatment, as well as discussions of molecular disease mechanisms, the etiology of oral cancer, and common skin diseases. A clinical overview outlines the clinical aspects of each disease discussed in the main body of the text, including its features, cause, significance, location, patient age, and radiographic appearance - making this book ideal as a quick chairside reference. Important pathologic concepts are illustrated with more than 920 high-quality clinical images, photomicrographs, and diagrams.

- Current concepts on disease etiology and treatment are emphasized.
- Full-color images of nearly every disease discussed facilitate effective learning and easy identification of intraoral lesions.
- An accompanying CD-ROM showcases an impressive electronic image collection, containing full-color photomicrographs, a 680-question test bank, and 30 illustrated case studies that feature clinical histories, photographs, and photomicrographs.
- The Clinical Overview section has been reorganized for quick reference as a pictorial guide to lesions that patients often present with.
- A brand-new chapter on Advanced Diagnostic Methods in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology provides current information on cutting-edge diagnostic methods.
