Preface

The periodic and timely revisions of Shafer’s Textbook of Oral Pathology have brought out a treatise, well conceived and written with the aim of updating the student all necessary nuances of the specialty. The scope of the present edition is an extension of this goal aimed at understanding the disease processes at a more fundamental level, the impetus being those in the maxillofacial region. While the subject appears more of loco-regional nature, as the text unfolds, its wider ramifications become more apparent and the disease entities described here appear wider in scope and nature. As in the past, this edition has also undergone an extensive revision and new topics have been included. A well thought out decision of incorporating ‘cutting edge’ technologies of relevance such as molecular markers and disease profiling, continues to be incorporated in the text with the aim of updating the subject and making it more contemporary. Scattered throughout the text one finds highlighted ‘boxes’ which stand out, yet merge imperceptibly with the rest, denoting advanced information perhaps beyond the ambit of the undergraduate curriculum. In this way, the text has been user friendly, though discriminatory of the scope and choice of its contents. We believe this approach is sensible and will be well taken by the readership. This textbook represents a treasury of information based for the most part, on the publications of our contemporaries and predecessors. In order to present the material in an informal manner, continuous referencing to these sources have been discarded. However, the reader will find a list of suggested references of wider scope at the end of each chapter.
This edition is peculiar in having new pieces of four-color art schematics, flowcharts and diagrams primarily aimed at comprehension of its contents and to facilitate reasoning of concepts such as the molecular basis of cancer. A change which is far reaching and marked is the hard copy format of the text which intends to minimize structural fatigue and maximize ease of usage. Finally, as was true of the fifth and sixth editions, all of our associations with the publisher, Elsevier India were pleasant and helpful. We want to thank the editorial staff of Elsevier India for their skilled and friendly assistance in helping us publish this project to completion successfully.
Deficiencies and shortcomings are rather inevitable in an effort of this magnitude and for which we shall be solely responsible. This textbook is dedicated to our contemporaries and predecessors who have made this effort a reality.
