The teaching of Dermatologic aspects of odontoiatric diseases aims primarily to provide the basics of anatomy and physiology of the skin, of visible mucous membranes and skin appendages, whose knowledge is essential for a correct clinical and diagnostic assessment. The student is then guided to the identification and classification of primary skin lesions and of the corresponding cutaneous disorders that may involve the oral cavity. In addition, the basic knowledge of the most modern diagnostic techniques allowing a rational and correct diagnosis will be provided. The histopathological correlations and the appropriate treatment options will also be considered. The course will finally focus on occupational dermatoses and skin cancer.
