Abstract

Oral Leukoerythroplakia- A Case Report

Objective: The objective of this study was to report a case of oral leukoerythroplakia, which is a potentially malignant disorder and has a high malignant transformation rate.
Method: A 58 year old male patient reported with the chief complaint of burning sensation on his right inner cheek region. On clinical examination he was diagnosed as a case of oral leukoerythroplakia and excisional biopsy was performed.
Results: Excisional biopsy revealed a highly dysplastic atrophic parakeratinized epithelium with dense inflammatory infiltrate, confirming the clinical diagnosis of oral leukoerythroplakia.
Conclusion: All mixed red lesions should be examined carefully since many of these could turn out to be oral leukoerythroplakia.
