Incidences of salivary gland diseases are relatively higher than we expect in practice. Understanding of salivary gland pathology is still not concluded, since the newer diagnostic techniques are evolving continuously, which dictate the modified approach to their management. Manual of Salivary Gland Diseases is a confluence of the anatomy, physiology, pathology of salivary glands, and their diagnosis and management.
There are few books available in the market on salivary gland tumors, but there is not a single book dealing with the entire salivary gland diseases and their management available at present. This book will be the first of this kind, to serve postgraduates and teaching faculties in the field of oral pathology, oral medicine and oral surgery, and practitioners and general surgeons.
Contributors for this book are experts in their respective field with more than two decades of professional experience and have attempted to provide readers with an understanding of pathology and diagnosis through the basic sciences. A balance is maintained between the basics and the advanced concepts.
Clinical, histopathological photographs and an easy-to-understand line diagrams are added, wherever necessary.
Key features include:
- Covers all aspects of salivary glands, from their development to the management of the diseases.
- Discusses the basic structures and functions of the salivary glands in detail, with easy-to-understand line diagrams and photomicrographs.
- Emphasizes the histogenesis and molecular pathogenesis of salivary gland tumors.
- Elaborates the classification of salivary gland diseases.
- Involves the molecular genetics of salivary gland tumors, modern investigative techniques, and management of salivary gland diseases.
- Useful for postgraduates, teaching faculties of oral pathology, oral medicine, oral surgery, and practitioners and general surgeons.
