This book is the 1988 English-language edition of the Color Atlas of Stomatology, written in 1986 by Dr George Laskaris, who is an associate professor in oral medicine and pathology, University of Athens (Greece). This atlas is written for specialists and trainees in the fields of dermatology, dentistry, oral medicine and pathology, and otorhinolaryngology. However, it will easily serve as a reference work for the general practitioner and anyone interested in oral disease.
This book offers 491 color illustrations of common and uncommon oral diseases, conditions, and malformations. Each illustration is accompanied on the facing page by a concise text, describing the clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, necessary laboratory tests, and treatment. It is obvious that the color photographs are selected from a vast slide collection (over 25 000): they stand out by their clarity and are highly representative examples of the disease portrayed.
