BARRIOS SANCHEZ, José Oscar; VILAS MARTINEZ, Lizandro; CORDOVA DALACIO, Dinorah  and  BARRIOS GONZALEZ, Isel. Histological studies of the oral cavity lesions in the quinquennium 2001-2005. AMC [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.1. ISSN 1025-0255.

The lesions reported with a greater frequency were the epidermoid carcinomas and the leukoplakias; the lower lip, tongue, gums and cheek, were the most affected anatomical places. The correlation between the clinical and histological diagnosis was about a 75.3%. The need of a premature diagnosis of these lesions in its corresponding level of prevention is indispensable.
