Physicians' Guide to Diseases of the Oral Cavity by H. S. Goldman, DDS, MPH, and M. Z. Marder, DDS, will be useful as a review atlas for those well trained in oral pathology and as a diagnostic and teaching aid for those seeking first-time information. Its primary purpose is to provide the practicing physician with concise and easily accessible reference material in an area that is frequently underemphasized in medical school curricula.

The book is divided into well-defined chapters encompassing more than 300 systemic diseases that have intraoral manifestations, in addition to a discussion of primary dental disorders. The authors begin by detailing the examination of the oral cavity. This is followed with chapters on plaque-related diseases, oral anomalies, tumors, systemic diseases, and neuropsychiatric conditions. Etiology, pathogenesis, history, and therapy are not treated in as much depth as diagnosis, but this is not the purpose of the book.
