Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, 3rd Edition (Neville, Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology)

Be prepared to diagnose and manage any condition you encounter in your practice! This bestselling reference gives you direct access to a complete range of full-color clinical images and patient radiographs that illustrate the differentiating characteristics of lesions in the oral and maxillofacial region. Significantly revised and updated content throughout this edition brings you the latest information on the etiology, clinical features, histopathology, treatment, and prognosis of each disease entity, as well as cutting-edge topics such as bisphosphonate osteonecrosis, the oral complications associated with methamphetamine abuse, solitary fibrous tumors, gene mutation, and plasminogen deficiency.

  • Over 1,300 clinical photos and radiographs, most in full color, facilitate identification and classification of lesions.
  • Current concepts of pathogenesis and disease management help you understand the diseases that affect the oral and maxillofacial structures, formulate an accurate diagnosis, and institute proper treatment.
  • Each chapter is logically organized by body system or disease group, enabling you to easily identify a specific condition.
  • A comprehensive appendix of differential diagnosis among oral and maxillofacial disease processes helps you rule out invalid diagnoses.
  • The bibliography divided by topic presented at the end of each chapter enables you to pursue supplemental literature.
  • Highly accomplished authors and contributors with a broad range of clinical and classroom teaching experience provide well-balanced coverage of the entire subject.
  • Chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter allow immediate access to specific topics.
  • Over 200 new illustrations have been added to this popular, visual reference.
  • A new section on bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis thoroughly explores and illustrates this recently identified complication resulting from medications used to prevent bone loss in patients with multiple myeloma, metastatic tumors, and osteoporosis.
  • A new section about the oral complications of methamphetamine abuse details characteristic oral manifestations such as “meth mouth caries” and factitial injuries.
  • Expanded coverage of oral piercings, intraoral tattoos, and other body modifications includes unusual entities such as tongue splitting and charm needles.
  • A new section on transient lingual papillitis sheds light on this common cause of transitory tongue irritation.
  • A new section on solitary fibrous tumors familiarizes you with this popular designation for certain benign fibrous neoplasms.
  • A new section on hypoplasminogenemia (ligneous conjunctivitis), or plasminogen deficiency, includes images from a patient case that illustrate the characteristic gingival lesions associated with this rare but fascinating systemic condition.
  • A new section on hereditary mucoepithelial dysplasia describes the characteristic oral manifestations that can lead you to accurately diagnose this condition, potentially preventing a woman with this disorder from having cytologically unusual cells misdiagnosed as carcinoma on her cervical PAP smears.
  • A new section discusses the clinical and microscopic features of chronic ulcerative stomatitis, an immune-mediated condition of the oral mucosa that presents with erosive lesions and is often mistaken for lichen planus.
  • The chapter on Forensic Dentistry has been thoroughly revised and updated by leading forensic odontology author, Dr. Edward Herschaft, to include the latest information on this fascinating topic.
  • Several chapters have been updated to include the most current knowledge of specific gene mutations associated with hereditary oral disorders.
Excellent resource book for the practitioner at any level. Well organized. Excellent quality photographs. Easy to use. Recommend without reservation.
The sad part is, there just aren’t any other books to compete with this one, so it is considered great but really because there is nothing to compare it to. I think it’s actually a pretty frustrating book focused very much on histology and not much on clinical use for the practicing dentist. I constantly have to look up further information online because I just don’t think it does an adequate job of explaining relevant information. The index in the back for quick reference to oral pathology is a great idea but I think lacking in substance. It would be nice if this section did a better job of listing descriptions about lesions as a quick reference.

I’ve just noticed that I get very frustrated with this book, maybe it has to do with it being associated with dental school- but I just feel like when I’m trying to research a disease I’d rather look online. And the index seems to be lacking common oral findings so it sends me down the wrong path, when I see something clinically in a patient.

Book is a great resource for both dentists and dental students. It is full of great pictures of the diseases and in-depth explanations of each. Highly recommend!
