Oral Cavity: Nonneoplastic and Benign Neoplasia

  • Margaret S. Brandwein-Weber


The universal challenge of writing about diagnostic surgical pathology is the flawed process of distilling experiential learning at the microscope into words on a page. Experiencing pathology and reading about pathology, are two very different processes that will forever be entwined. One cannot become a pathologist and maintain competency without be grounded in both. This massive chapter covers the wide array of autoimmune, infectious, idiopathic, and benign processes, and benign tumors that can affect the oral cavity; its very diversity defies summary into key points. My goal is to strike the right balance of tersely presented information, diagnostic descriptors, pitfalls, and histological examples, to companion you, as you experience oral pathology.
