Course Description

This course is based on the adage that “common things are commoner than you think as rare things are rarer than you think”. Therefore, the course will very well serve as a ‘primer’ in clinical oral pathology. Filled with numerous high resolution clinical and radiographic pictures, the discussion of approximately 75 such entities will highlight the diagnostic features and suggest management, if at all required.

The spectrum of entities covered will include developmental alterations of the mucosa, bone and teeth, sequela of odontogenic infections, effects of physical and chemical insult, common ulcerative conditions, warts and benign growths, pigmentation disorders including moles (nevi), skin cancer and its precursor lesions, benign bone changes and common odontogenic lesions.
