A highly illustrated handbook, using a symptom-based approach to assist the clinician in the diagnosis and management of those conditions that fall into the speciality of oral medicine. Dealing first with normal anatomy, physical examination and investigation – particularly lesional biopsy, haematological assessment and microbiological sampling – the authors cover all areas of those diseases, local and systemic, that manifest themselves in the lips and mouth. Conditions are grouped under their principal presenting sign – blistering, white patches, red patches, swelling, pigmentation, pain, dry mouth, altered tasted and halitosis.
A comprehensive and practical guide to the management and treatment of oral problems, this handbook is of value to professionals and trainees in medicine, pathology and dentistry.
