Are you due for a booster? This lecture is a case-based refresher of clinically-relevant pathology that is not encountered by clinicians on a daily basis and therefore may pose a diagnostic challenge. The key features that help identify the interpretation or diagnosis of an abnormality are presented. Classic and atypical cases will be contrasted and “red-flag” features will be highlighted. Boost your recognition and understanding of oral squamous cell carcinoma associated precursor lesions. Management will be discussed where appropriate.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will:

  1. Analyze key features for diagnosis of soft tissue and radiologic lesions
  2. Compare common presentations and variants
  3. Recognize features suggestive of aggressive disease
  4. Identify lesions at risk for transformation to squamous cell carcinoma
