oral ulcers – focusing on immune mediated diseases but also covering the oral manifestation of gastrointestinal diseases
brown spot(s) – exploring drug-induced and oral malignant melanoma
multiple papillary lesions – with attention to oral HPV-associated diseases and including oral cancer
unilocular radiolucencies – concentrating on aggressive oral cysts and cancer metastasis
multilocular radiolucencies – focusing on aggressive odontogenic neoplasms, completely radiopaque lesions (single and multiple), and the latter’s association with Gardner’s syndrome
Every category will start with an interactive discussion of a clinical case with a differential diagnosis identified by the audience. The case will serve as the basis for an in-depth discussion of the differential diagnosis, clinical presentation, and final diagnosis based on the histology. Treatment at every level, recurrence rate, and overall prognosis will also be discussed. Participants will be provided with tools to base their judgment on facts and the most applied standard of care. This is an interactive and dynamic course providing necessary information directly applicable to improving the everyday practice of diagnosing oral diseases.
