Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we present the most common oral and maxillofacial pathological entities that an OMFS surgeon may treat. We review their clinical background, radiographic appearance if applicable, and accepted treatments. It is impossible to review all pathological entities as the goal of this book is not to be a complete pathological textbook. In the oral boards setting, one is expected to identify possible entities and how those offered may be treated. A candidate may score highly despite not being able to correctly identify the presented entity.
