Oral Epithelial Dysplastic lesions, especially so called oral precancer, are among the most
challenging and intricate topics of head and neck pathology1.The concept of a stepwise
development of cancer in the oral mucosa, i.e., the initial presence of a precursor (premalignant/
precancerous) lesion subsequently developing into cancer is well established.
The presence of Epithelial Dysplasia may be even more important in predicting
malignant development than the clinical characteristics2.In medical terms the word
dysplasia means an abnormality of development and in histomorphology word dysplasia
expresses cellular and structural changes of the epithelium1.
Oral Epithelial Dysplasia (OED) is a diagnostic term used to describe the histopathologic
changes seen in chronic, progressive premalignant disorders of the oral
mucosa.Clinically these may present as Leukoplakia, Erythroplakia or
Leukoerythroplakia. Epithelial dysplasia may also be seen in verrucous or papillary
Leukoplakia or in the margins of a chronic mucosal ulcer. It is also consistently seen in the
mucosa adjacent to the tumor in patients with invasive Squamous Cell Carcinoma3.
With current therapeutic options, when Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma presents
clinically, it is too late for a cure in the majority of patients. The challenge is therefore to
identify the lesions that have a potential to develop into carcinoma by accurately grading
the dysplastic features and which, accordingly demand particular attention.
The term ‘dysplasia’ was introduced by Reagon in 1958 in relation to the cells exfoliated
from lesions of the uterine cervix. Dysplasia means abnormal, atypical proliferation.
Dysplasia is encountered principally in the epithelium. In past, epithelial dysplasia,
epithelial atypia and dyskeratosis were used synonymously3.The histologic criteria to
assess cellular and tissue changes (dysplasia) have been defined by the world health
organization (WHO)4,5 and are related to alterations in kinetics of cellular proliferation
and maturation of the epithelium4,6.Epithelial Dysplasia (atypicality, atypia, dyskeratosis)
is almost universally regarded as often representing a premalignant condition of the oral
mucosa7.
