Clinical Chalenges in Differential Diagnosis of Oral Lesions
Differential diagnosis of oral mucosal lesions is primarily evaluated using a diagnosis algorithm or protocol, together with the clinical presentation of the lesion, anamnesis of the patient and the clinical knowledge of the clinician. This review has been designed to investigate the most prevalent lesions and phenomena of the oral mucosa, and to guide the clinician to correct and efficient approach in the diagnosis of such lesions. The success of a rapid and correct diagnosis of oral mucosal lesions is of great advantage for the patient, ensuring timely management and correct treatment procedures. Most importantly, the timely detection and exclusion of malignant lesions upon a routine dental oral examination provide the clinician and patient with maximum success in treatment opportunities.
