Leukoplakia on the tongue or in the mouth can be described as a very irritating and burning feeling. In very rare cases, such a leukoplakia spot can eventually develop into a malignant oral cancer. Causes of leukoplakia on the tongue / mouth. Leukoplakia on the tongue or in the mouth is especially common in people over forty years. Oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL) is a benign epithelial disease associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and nearly always identified in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected and/or immunocompromised patients. The disease correlates with viral load and CD4 counts. OHL usually presents on the lateral border of the tongue as a white plaque, or vertical streaks, or with a corrugated surface.
Oral leukoplakia is a white patch or plaque that cannot be rubbed off, cannot be characterized clinically or histologically as any other condition, and is not associated with any physical or chemical causative agent except tobacco. Therefore, a process of exclusion establishes the diagnosis of the disease. Booktopia has Oral Leukoplakia, Developments in Oncology by Jolan Banoczy.

Leukoplakia could be classified as mucosal disease, and also as a premalignant condition. Although the white color in leukoplakia is a result of hyperkeratosis (or acanthosis), similarly appearing white lesions that are caused by reactive keratosis (smoker's keratosis or frictional keratoses e.g. morsicatio buccarum) are not considered to be leukoplakias.

Abstract. Oral leukoplakia (New Latin leuko, white, + classical Greek plax, flat object) is said to represent the most common premalignant oral mucosal lesion with an estimated global prevalence rate of %.Historically, practitioners have used many synonyms such as leucoma, smokers’ patch, leukokeratosis and ichthyosis for this lesion.
Oral diseases are normally easy until genuinely progressed, so stopping tobacco and liquor is a superior anticipation procedure. How is oral leukoplakia analyzed. Oral Leukoplakia is normally determined to have an oral test.
During an oral test, your medicinal services supplier can affirm if the patches are leukoplakia. Leukoplakia is usually diagnosed with an oral exam. During an oral exam, your healthcare provider can confirm if the patches are leukoplakia.
You might mistake the condition for oral Author: Kristeen Moore. Biopsy of clinically suspected oral leukoplakia is mandatory to: exclude recognised diseases, and to assess for the absence or presence and grade of dysplasia.
It is appropriate to wait two weeks after the first presentation to assess clinical response to initial treatment, e.g. for candida, change in tooth brushing habit, cessation of smoking, etc. A combination of the and the WHO definitions of oral leukoplakia may result in the following text: “A predominantly white patch or plaque that cannot be characterized clinically or pathologically as any other disorder; oral leukoplakia carries an increased risk of cancer development either in or close to the area of leukoplakia or elsewhere in the oral cavity or the head-and-neck.

Oral leukoplakia is the most common premalignant or potentially malignant disorder of the oral mucosa. It is defined as a white patch or plaque of the oral mucosa that cannot be characterised clinically or pathologically as any other disease.
Hairy leukoplakia is a condition that is characterised by irregular white patches on the side of the tongue and occasionally elsewhere on the tongue or in the mouth. It is a form of leukoplakia, which refers to white patches on the mucous membranes of the mouth often arising in response to chronic irritation.
Leukoplakia is a clinical term which has no specific histopathological definition. Leukoplakia is an epithelial precursor lesion which has been defined as an “altered epithelium with an increased likelihood for progression to squamous cell carcinoma” (Barnes et al.
).The most widely used definition of oral leukoplakia is that agreed at a WHO workshop in (Axell et al. ): “a. Oral leukoplakia (OL) is a white patch or plaque of the oral mucosa that cannot be characterised clinically or pathologically as any other condition such as cheek biting, candidosis, lichen planus and materia alba.
OL is pre-malignant and is associated with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). This chapter is set out as follows.Six-hundred eighty-three (%) patients were segregated, out of which OPMDs were (%) and (%) were oral cancer.
Oral leukoplakia % constituted the highest number of patients.Leukoplakia is a somewhat ill-defined disease, similar to kraurosis, butdiffering from it in that it appears in the form of whitish plaques scatteredover the vulvar area rather than a general atrophic process involving the entirevulva.
The histologic changes in leukoplakia are more superficial than those ofkraurosis, being located in the epidermis.
