15th Annual Oral Pathology Symposium: LUST IN PATHOLOGY (Lumps, Ulcers, Striae, Treatment) & Diagnosis Update

Drs. Bhattacharyya & CohenCourse Description

This seminar will present a potpourri of interesting case studies in oral and maxillofacial pathology covering a variety of conditions encountered in general and specialty dental practices. The presenters will utilize an Audience Response System which will enable participants to anonymously respond and interact with the presenters. In addition, the lecture will be customized by the audience responses and questions to better facilitate learning.

Emphasis will be placed on lesions and conditions commonly seen in dental practice, especially those difficult to diagnose and/or manage, newly diagnosed conditions, and premalignant or malignant lesions. The topics will range from the human papilloma virus including the epidemic of HPV driven cancers and benign lesions of the oral cavity. Various types of squamous and non-squamous malignancies such as lymphomas (a group of increasingly common lesions), salivary gland tumors, myeloma, etc, will also be presented in a case series format. Special emphasis will be placed on patient’s concerns regarding papilloma (whether they are sexually transmitted and /or premalignant), condyloma, etc. and on the eexplosion of sexually transmitted oral lesions. Soft tissue and bone pathology including both commonly encountered radiographic lesions to more rare or life threatening conditions, will be presented. The molecular and clinical characteristics of oral cancer covering the basic biology and clinico-pathologic concepts of this serious disease will be covered. We will highlight the incredibly diverse nature of oral ulcerations and discuss the etiology, diagnosis and treatment for these lesions. Newer oral conditions especially osteochemonecrosis related to bisphosphonates, RANK-L inhibitors (Prolia) and newer drugs such as anti-angiogenic medications (sunitinib, bevacizumab) will be examined. Some startling new treatments and preventive measures for osteonecrosis will be covered. The impact of these drugs on general dental practice and implant success will also be discussed. In addition, commonly misdiagnosed oral soft and hard tissue conditions and emerging and/or new diagnostic challenges encountered in oral pathology will be presented in a  case based format.

 

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
