Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Mark L. Banakis, DDS (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: The book is basically a collection of all the papers presented at the second international workshop on oral manifestations of the HIV infection.
Purpose: The purpose was simply to present the papers delivered at the workshop.
Audience: The best audience for this text would be researchers in the oral manifestations of the HIV infection. I don't believe it is a good text for dentists or dental students.
Features: A book dealing with the oral manifestations of the HIV infection should have a great deal more illustrations and photos. The book does have good current references.
Assessment: The book basically presented all the papers delivered at the second international workshop on the oral manifestations of the HIV infection. The majority of this material is research-oriented and not a good reference for the general dentist. If the general dentist was the intended audience, more illustrations should have been used, along with more discussion of the diagnosis, etiology, and treatment of these oral manifestations of the HIV infection.
