This book greatly expands the body of knowledge in the field of odontogenic tumor pathology. It describes the epidemiologic, radiologic, and histopathologic features of presently known neoplasms and hamartomatous or tumor-like lesions arising from the tooth-forming structures, as well as a number of distinctive jaw lesions that must be distinguished from odontogenic tumors. It also presents recurrence rates and, where appropriate, information about the most recent concepts for treatment. An understanding of the biologic behavior of odontogenic tumors is essential to the timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment of these complex tumors. This book will serve as a practical resource for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, maxillofacial radiologists, and, in particular, head and neck pathologists. In addition, it is an invaluable reference for researchers in this field.
