Covering pathologic conditions by clinical appearance, Oral Pathology: Clinical Pathologic Correlations, 6th Edition uses an atlas-style format to help you identify, diagnose, and plan treatment for oral disease presentations. Two-page spreads include clinical photos of common conditions on one side while the facing page lists the central features, causes, and significance of each specific disease. Each chapter is organized by clinical appearance, such as white lesions, red-blue lesions, and cysts of the jaws and neck, and includes full-color photomicrographs and clinical photos to help you identify pathologic elements. This edition adds new coverage of oral cancer and new cone beam CT, regular CT, and MRI images. Expert authors Joseph Regezi, James Sciubba, and Richard Jordan provide a quick reference thatÕs ideal for the lab, NBDE review, or chairside use!

  • An atlas-style Clinical Overview section makes it easy to find key information, with one page showing clinical photos of common conditions and the facing page listing symptoms, causes, and significance.
  • Organization by clinical appearance -- such as including all red-blue lesions in one chapter along with possible causes -- matches what you would expect to see upon a patient's presentation, and provides a practical tool for developing differential diagnoses and planning treatment.
  • Hundreds of full-color clinical photographs and radiographs depict specific conditions for easier identification in real clinical scenarios.
  • Full-color photomicrographs help you identify pathologic elements and provide correct diagnoses and treatment plans.
  • Boxes and tables offer clear, at-a-glance information on the clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment for many conditions.
  • Student resources on a companion Evolve website include 30 case studies, a 150-question practice exam, and case-based learning to prepare you for the NBDE and for clinical practice.
  • Advanced imaging techniques include images such as CBCTs (cone beam computed tomography), regular CTs, and MRIs, reflecting the transition from a 2-dimensional to a 3-dimensional approach in acquiring data and reconstructing images, and helping you identify and assess disease entities -- especially tumors of the salivary glands, jaws, and soft tissues.
  • Expanded sections on etiology, treatment, and diagnosis of oral cancer (HPV) describe how subtypes can play an important role in the development and natural history of some head and neck cancers, most notably those arising in the oropharynx.
  • Expanded section on bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws helps you effectively manage patients taking bisphosphonates to prevent bone loss, including information on oral complications, risk factors, and benefits.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Juneseok Lee
This oral pathology textbook uses pictures and diagrams to present current concepts of oral and maxillofacial pathology in an easy-to-use format. The purpose is to highlight practical clinical considerations while teaching the principles of oral pathology. Enhanced differential diagnostics are presented so that practitioners can diagnose more accurately and expediently. As dental practice becomes more advanced and efficient, texts like this become more important. The color pictures and the comprehensive text meet the editors' objectives because they help to bridge the didactic text with actual examples of clinical cases. This book is written for dental students who are learning oral pathology. It is well suited for dental students because of the comprehensive nature of the text, followed by clear and informative tables and pictures. The contributors seem very credible authorities in this subject matter. The book is structured as a typical oral pathology text. The ""Clinical Overview"" at the beginning is unique. There are detailed color pictures, accompanied by corresponding tables. The ""Clinical Overview"" thus simplifies the process of identifying various cases in oral pathology. Although less detailed than comparable textbooks, this book is very useful because of the color photos and the succinct, yet comprehensive tables in the ""Clinical Overview"" section. Aside from the length and detail of the text, there are no apparent shortcomings. This is a valuable resource for learning oral pathology. Although less detailed than other textbooks, the ""Clinical Overview"" section alone makes this book an indispensable guide to identifying oral diseases. In addition, it isparticularly informative on soft-tissue disease. I recommend it to other practitioners and students who are learning oral pathology.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bernard Alan Levy, AB, DDS, MSD (University of Maryland)
Description: This edition of a comprehensive book of oral and maxillofacial pathology is a vast improvement over the 2003 edition in terms of illustrations, diagrams, and tables.
Purpose: The authors attempt to combine a comprehensive reference with a teaching text for students. There is always a need for such a utopian result, but most attempts fall short in one or more areas. This book comes close, and if it has a shortcoming, it is the insufficiency of detail wanted and needed by specialists in the field.
Audience: The book is very well suited for dental students and practicing dentists, but it would be of limited usefulness for specialists in oral or surgical pathology. The authors fail to provide sufficient detail for these groups, despite the fact that they are top scholars in the field.
Features: The book has retained its tried and true format as a complete text of the subject. The first chapter is a superb clinical review of oral lesions. The remainder of the book is divided into chapters based on various categories of related disorders. The new diagrams and charts are a wonderful addition.
Assessment: This is a valuable book for use in dental schools. It is probably overkill for dental hygienists and insufficient for dental specialists.
