Abstract:
This study was performed to assess the incidence and intraoral distribution of different mucosal lesions in a representative population. Retrospective review of clinical notes and assessment of histology reports of patients were performed, who presented with different oral lesions to University Hospital Galway, between January 2007 and December 2008.Of the 106 histology reports evaluated, 94 were identified as benign lesions while 12 were malignant lesions. 96 of these patients were referred from G.P services, 6 patients were referred from other departments while 4 patients came through emergency department by self referral. The numbers and incidence of the commonest lesions in order of frequency were chronic inflammation 20 (18.8%), papilloma 19 (17.1%), fibroma 09 (8.4%), mucocele 09 (8.4%) and leukoplakia 08 (7.5%).We concluded that majority of the presented oral lesions are benign (88.7%). Chronic inflammation (18.8%) is the commonest benign oral lesion and all white lesions which represents 34% of oral lesions are not true leukoplakia.
