This highly illustrated handbook uses a symptom-based approach to assist the clinician in the diagnosis and management of those conditions that fall into the specialty 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 taste and halitosis. With 260 brilliant color photographs illustrating each disease, this is the perfect text to consult for accurate diagnosis and treatment strategies.

A comprehensive and practical guide to the management and treatment of oral problems, this handbook will be of value to professionals and trainees in medicine, pathology and dentistry.
