Tumours of the oral cavity and oropharynx Introduction

P.J. Slootweg J.W. Eveson

Tumours of the oral cavity and oropharynx may be either epithelial, mesenchymal, or haematolymphoid. The epithelial tumours may be classified as those originating within the epithelium lining of the oral cavity and oropharynx and those derived from salivary gland tissue. Both will be included in this chapter, including precursor lesions where appropriate. For the haematolymphoid diseases, the reader is referred to the WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues {1197}, for mesenchymal ones to the WHO Classification of Tumours of Soft Tissue and Bone {775}.
