This book is based on Schuermann's monograph Diseases of Oral Mucosa and Lips, a volume which appeared in two previous editions in 1955 and 1958. Both Greither and Hornstein—the latter an associate of Schuermann—endeavor to continue Schuermann's approach and at the same time project their own point of view and experience.
Short chapters deal with the embryology of the oral cavity, the histology, histochemistry, and electron microscopy of the lips and oral mucosa, the cytology of the oral mucosa, anatomic variants, malformations, and heterotopias.
In 42 individual chapters the authors describe the vast number of diseases not only of the oral mucosa and lips but also the oral manifestations of many skin diseases, among which may be found genodermatoses, infectious diseases caused by cocci, bacteria, and spirochetes, richettsioses, viral diseases, exanthematous infectious diseases, aphthae, bullous and pustular dermatoses, sensitivity reactions, mucous membrane changes in internal diseases, benign and malignant neoplasms,
