Course Details


While the principles of recognition and diagnosis of white lesions have been consistent over the years, the management of such lesions is under constant revision. This course will discuss common neoplastic and nonneoplastic white lesions, how to interpret biopsy results, and how to implement or find evidence-based management.



At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:


  1. Formulate a differential diagnosis of white lesions based on location, demarcation, and texture.
  2. Understand when and when not to biopsy a white lesion.
  3. Interpret biopsy results.
  4. Mange or know when to refer for definitive treatment when a white lesion is outside their scope of practice.
