The second edition of Diseases of the Oral Mucosa is a revision and update of the first edition, published in 1964 and out of print for several years. The first edition was a classic. The second edition of this valuable resource promises to become a classic also.

The book consists of 39 chapters, 559 pages, and an excellent index. It is encyclopedic in its coverage, so complete it even includes a chapter on "Oral Lesions of Tropical and Parasitic Diseases." The clinical experience of the authors, two highly respected clinician/investigators in the field of oral medicine, is liberally interspersed throughout the book. This represents one of the book's strongest points.

Another strength of this book is the excellent collection of photographs and photomicrographs. The text is generously illustrated by photographs of clinical lesions. Furthermore, the histopathologic findings are handsomely illustrated by photomicrographs.
