This award-winning clinical text covers the vast array of conditions that oral and maxillofacial surgeons need to be prepared to identify and treat, ranging from common reactive disorders to carcinoma to rare salivary gland neoplasms to malignancies of bone. In addition to its clinical presentation, each disease entity includes its pathogenesis, differential diagnosis, diagnostic work-up, histopathology, treatment, and prognosis, offering the reader the complete context necessary for understanding and managing it. This updated two-volume edition includes several new disease entities, the latest information on recognizing and treating previously described conditions, and new clinical images and cases that better portray the clinical presentation and/or treatment of specific diseases. Significant additions include the section on bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaws (BIONJ), which includes over 50 new images and outlines the complete staging and treatment for both oral and intravenous BIONJ, and the incorporation of new reconstructive techniques using recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein, stem cell concentrates, and tissue-engineering principles where appropriate. An essential reference for any oral and maxillofacial surgeon or resident.

Robert E. Marx DDS, FACS

United States of America

Well known as an educator, researcher, and innovative surgeon, Dr Marx is professor of surgery and chief of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. As a researcher, he has made valuable contributions in the use of hyperbaric oxygen following radiation therapy, in the development of platelet-rich plasma, and in elucidating the relationships between smoking and carcinogenesis. He also pioneered the clinical applications of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein and stem cell use and was the first to identify what is now known worldwide as bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaws. He has also developed new concepts and treatments for pathologies within OMS as well as new techniques in reconstructive surgery.

"This 30.7 cm x 28.4 cm x 8.1 cm hardback textbook containing 2,700 images including diagrams, histology slides, radiographs, and photographs is a desirable reference guide to all things oral and maxillofacial. The text is especially appealing to maxillofacial surgeons and those on a training pathway alongside general dental practitioners wishing to build upon and develop their knowledge using a well-written comprehensive text."
D. Lee, British Dental Journal (August 2012)

"The second edition of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: A Rationale for Diagnosis and Treatment expands and refines the material contained in the award-winning first edition. This is primarily a clinical text directed at medical and dental practitioners who treat diseases of the oral cavity, midface, and neck. It also has application for medical and dental personnel who need to identify diseases and to determine which cases may need to be referred to specialists."
Richard A. Kraut, DDS; Implant Dentistry (October 2012)
