DHY 200 ORAL PATHOLOGY
DHY 200 ORAL PATHOLOGY (2 Credits)
The course covers abnormalities in morphology and function. Since abnormalities begin at the cellular level, this course also begins with cellular alterations and response. The majority of the course is devoted to oral pathology, with emphasis placed on those lesions most frequently encountered. For each lesion discussed, the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical and microscopic signs and symptoms, differential diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, and prognosis are presented. Limited discussion will be devoted to general pathology as it relates to oral lesions and manifestations.
