First published in 1958, Shafer's Textbook of Oral Pathology has become the foundational text for successive generations of dentistry students. The book highlights the aetiology and pathogenesis of oral diseases and focuses on a variety of diseases commonly encountered in clinical practice. This edition brings the presentation up to date with current disease profiles and contemporary treatment modalities and clinical practices. It also includes several new topics which makes the text especially relevant for Indian and tropical conditions. All the chapters have been thoroughly revised and old images have been replaced by good quality illustrations as far as possible.
