The course aims to critically educate the student to the knowledge of the anatomical structures of the oral cavity, the main etiopathogenetic mechanisms of infectious, inflammatory, autoimmune, preneoplastic, benign and malignant neoplastic diseases of odontostomatological interest.

• Introduction to special odontostomatological disease
• Anatomy of the head / neck
• Anatomy and histology of the oral cavity
• Oral cavity disorders with infectious oral cavity etiopathogenesis
• Oral mucosa with autoimmune etiopathogenesis
• Oral cavity disorders with flogistic and / or reactive etiopathogenesis
• Gold-facial granulomatous
• Pre-cancerous manifestations and squamocellular carcinoma of the oral cavity


Introduction to special odontostomatological disease

Assessment methods and criteria

The examination at the end of the course will take place in two phases:
- first written stage. The student will be subjected to clinical-radiographic documentation on a clinical case by requesting to produce a written discussion, of what is deduced from such documentation, in the context of diagnostic hypothesis, etiopathogenesis, treatment options and prognosis.
-second practical phase. The student will be asked to visit a patient and to present, based on the clinical and instrumental data collected, the diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic hypotheses of the case under consideration.
