Leukoplakia
Subject: Medical | Topics:

Leukoplakia in the mouth, is defined as a predominantly white lesion of the oral mucosa that cannot be characterized as any other definable lesion. However this definition is inconsistently applied, and some refer to any oral white patch as eukoplakia. Leukoplakia is a descriptive clinical term that is only correctly used once all other possible causes have been ruled out.
