Diseases of the oral cavity have been categorized according to presenting signs and symptoms. Chapters include lesions associated with AIDS or HIV seropositivity for up-to-the-minute coverage. The primary objective of this text is the development of an approach to the patient, providing the student with a protocol for developing a differential diagnosis, evaluating patient responses and clinical signs so as to limit the differential and ultimately securing a definitive diagnosis so that a treatment plan can be generated.
