Common Ulcers of the Oral Cavity


CE Hours: 2        Lecture

Speaker: Mark A. Lerman, DMD, instructor, Harvard School of Dental Medicine; attending, Brigham and Women's Hospital, division of oral medicine and dentistry; and diplomate, American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology

Ulcers frequently develop within the oral cavity secondary to array of etiologies ranging from mild trauma to invasive malignancies. Clinical judgement and learning to distinguish innocuous lesions that require no further followup from worrisome conditions is paramount to appropriate patient management. In this lecture, attendees will learn to recognize oral ulcers and formulate appropriate differentials so that definitive diagnoses can be rendered for the well-being of their patients.


  • Define, clinically recognize, and distinguish oral ulcers from their mimics
  • Formulate appropriate differentials for oral ulcers
  • Arrive at definitive diagnoses for oral ulcers
  • Provide appropriate management for patients exhibiting oral ulcers
