Covering pathology according to clinical appearance, this text makes it easy to quickly identify and diagnose oral disease presentations. New and improved photos have been added to this edition, along with cutting-edge information on disease etiology and treatment. Coverage of pain, xerostomia, dysgeusia, and halitosis is significantly expanded, and discussions of the molecular basis of cancers reflect the rapid advances in molecular medicine. An updated companion CD-ROM provides excellent preparation for clinical situations and for success on the NBDE.
- Clinical Overview section uses an atlas-style format, with one page showing clinical photos of a condition and the facing page listing central features, causes, and significance — making it easy to locate key information on each condition.
- Organization by clinical appearance matches what you would expect to see upon a patient's presentation, and relates conditions to possible causes, making the book a useful tool for development of differential diagnoses and subsequent treatment planning.
- Hundreds of clinical photographs and radiographs depict key features of specific conditions for easier identification in real clinical scenarios.
- Photomicrographs help you identify pathologic elements and provide correct diagnoses and treatment plans for patients.
- Chapter outlines survey the topics in each chapter and make it easy to locate specific content.
- Boxes and tables offer clear, at-a-glance information on clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment for many conditions.
