Based on the observed increased risk of malignant development, OLP patients should be offered regular follow-up examination from two to four times annually and asked to report any changes in their lesions and/or symptoms. Expand
Oral squamous cell carcinoma overview.
TLDR
An overview of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is presented highlighting essential points from the contributors to this issue, to set the scene. Expand
Current controversies in oral lichen planus: report of an international consensus meeting. Part 2. Clinical management and malignant transformation.
TLDR
Despite recent advances in understanding the immunopathogenesis of oral lichen planus, the initial triggers of lesion formation and the essential pathogenic pathways are unknown and the clinical management of oral LP poses considerable difficulties to the dermatologist and the oral physician. Expand
Oro-facial granulomatosis--a clinical and pathological analysis.
