In addition to focusing on differential diagnosis for various oral lesions, this book details information on clinical features, management, and treatment options. There is also a chapter on laboratory medicine and the types of tests available to help confirm or dispel a diagnosis. The two previous editions were published in 1998 and 2005.


The book seeks to fulfill the requirements of the syllabi of various Indian universities as well as other universities abroad. It also is intended to spare students in India from buying high-priced books from abroad and to promote the production of textbooks in that country. In addition, the author wanted to provide an overview of information covered in a number of books, so that the information is relevant regardless of university or syllabus.


According to the author, the book is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as medical students. It also can be used as a source of review for private practitioners and other allied health professionals, particularly individuals caring for medically complex patients with oral complications.


Topics covered include knowledge of normal oral structures, normal variations, pathological changes, oral flora, imaging, age changes, differential diagnoses, and available laboratory testing. The best features of the book are its clinical photographs, classifications, and the self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter. Treatment recommendations are not in depth and do not provide specific treatment regimens of care. There are a limited number of references.


This book is well organized and provides a comprehensive overview of oral lesions, clinical features, and diagnosis. The third edition is justified with more up-to-date color photos and radiographs as well as classifications of lesions.
