Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rodrigue G. Barakat, DMD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is a well-illustrated text in which the different pathologies that could affect the oral cavity are discussed. \tje authors review the pathogenesis, epidemiology, classification, general clinical features, microscopic and radiographic appearance, management, and prognosis of oral disease. They also includes brief chapters on the methods used for the investigation of pathologies.
Purpose: The purpose is to attempt to collate the information available on pathology and then to present it in a concise, accessible, and easy to digest form which will assist the surgeon with the management of their patients.
Audience: The authors target the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, but other surgical specialists of the head and neck might also benefit, including otolaryngologists and plastic surgeons. Each author is a credible expert in the field of surgical pathology of the oral cavity.
Features: A full range of oral pathology is covered, as well as the latest means of treatment of the diseases. Non-surgical conditions have been included in the text as these are frequently seen by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. There are color pictures that are precise enough yet a little too small to be easily viewed. The addition of clinical slides would be even more helpful and instructive. Perhaps this should be considered in an subsequent edition.
Assessment: This book is a valuable contribution to the field. The fact that it is authored by both pathologists and oral maxillofacial surgeons makes for an excellent combination of talent for writing on the subject. It should serve to improve the interactions between surgeons and their pathologist colleagues. This is a great summary of the current knowledge on the subject. It is a good reference for the surgeon who requires immediate information.
