While most dentists do not perform their own histologic testing, all dentists must be able to recognize conditions that may require biopsy or further treatment outside the dentist office. This book does not pretend to be an exhaustive resource on oral pathology; instead, it seeks to provide the practicing clinician with enough information to help identify or at least narrow down the differential for every common lesion or oral manifestation of disease seen in daily practice as well as what to do about them. Organized by type of lesion, mass, or disease, each pathologic entity presented includes the nature of the disease; its predilections, clinical features, radiographic presentation, differential diagnosis, and microscopic features; and the suggested course of action for the dental practitioner as well as the standard treatment regimen. In keeping with the concise nature of the text, all but the rarest disease entities include at least one photograph to illustrate the clinical condition. This book distills the comprehensive information from Dr Marx and Dr Diane Sterns award-winning pathology reference text (Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: A Rationale for Diagnosis and Treatment, ed 2 [Quintessence, 2012]) into practical guidelines for restorative and general dentists everywhere. 376 pp; 425 illus Contents 1.
