Abstract
To detail the clinical presentation of oral epithelial dysplasia in a large cohort of residents in western Europe. Descriptive statistical analysis of the data were calculated using chi-square and Fisher's exact tests. Oral epithelial dysplasia manifested typically as a white or mixed red and white lesion on the tongue, buccal mucosa or floor of mouth. The peak age of presentation of oral epithelial dysplasia was the 6th decade. Most clinically detected lesions had only mild oral epithelial dysplasia. Although uncommon, lesions with severe dysplasia were most likely to arise on the floor of mouth or lateral border of tongue. Oral epithelial dysplasia is likely to manifest as a solitary white patch, but it is not possible to accurately predict the likely degree of dysplasia from the clinical features of such lesions. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd.
