    This is a revised edition of a bestselling handbook. The authors have fully updated the text to include the most up to date treatment options, have added a section on head and neck imaging (CT/MRI), a series of self-test clinical cases, and 100 new photographs.

    The book uses 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, hematological 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 taste, and halitosis.

    This comprehensive handbook is of value to professionals and trainees in medicine, dentistry and pathology.
