General dentists are the initial point of contact for patients presenting with various
pathologies of the oral mucosa. White lesions are relatively common findings in
clinical practice. Diagnosing and management of these white lesions of the oral
cavity can also be extremely challenging. These lesions can reflect various
etiologies and degrees of significance or seriousness. The disease categories include
reactive, developmental/congenital, genetic, autoimmune, infectious, immunologic,
benign, potentially malignant and malignant disorders. A thorough medical/clinical
history and oral examination, which includes assessment of clinical characteristics
that include the color, site, size, surface texture, onset, duration and presence of pain,
helps in establishing the clinical differential diagnoses. Additionally, the recognition,
diagnosis and management of these conditions requires a good clinical assessment,
use of additional diagnostic aids and a histopathologic correlation. Therefore, this
course aims to provide a detailed overview of the etiology, clinical features,
histopathological features and differential diagnosis for the common white lesions of
the oral cavity. We expect it to provide a clear guide for clinicians in formulating a
differential diagnoses, which further leads to appropriate treatments and referrals if
At the conclusion of the course, the participants should be able to:
- Recognize the white lesions of the oral cavity
- Categorize the white lesions of the oral cavity based on etiology/risk factors
- Devise a differential diagnoses for white lesions of the oral cavity
- Identify the commonly employed diagnostic and management strategies for white lesions of the oral cavity
