Editorial Reviews


Reviews of this EditionCysts of the Oral Regions… remains an indispensable account of our current knowl­edge of this fascinating group of lesions of the jaw and para-oral tissues… All patholo­gists with an interest in the pathology of the oral and max­illo-facial and head and neck region should have a copy.
Oral Oncology, 2007From Published Reviews of the Previous EditionThe first edition of this commendable book was published in 1976. Since then it has developed into a classical reference book on the subject . . . The book is most valuable for oral and general pathologists, radiologists, oral and general surgeons. general dentists as well as undergraduate and post­graduate students. It is systematicallv organised. which makes it easy to gain access to the information of interest. The author should be congratulated on a most signifi­cant work. I recommend the book to all with an interest in this field.
International Dental JournalAs part of their normal practice, dentists are not infrequently faced with diagnosing and managing patients with cysts of the jaws and oral regions. This book is a comprehensive account of such cysts and covers the clinical and radiographic features, as well as the aetiology, pathogenesis, histology and treatment . . . Overall the detail of the book is such that it is most suited to postgraduate students, as well as being a valuable and detailed reference text for oral and general pathologists and surgeons.
Dental UpdateThis book will naturally and quite correctly attract great attention. Mervyn Shear has over the years maintained a tremendous interest in this subject. He has not only pub­lished extensively but also contributed significantly to our better understanding and thus better patient management. This text is the third addition but represents a significant advance on previous texts . . . It is difficult to fault this text and certainly a book which all clinicians at all levels will constantly refer. It must be stressed that it is not a surgical manual. It will not give a student a ‘one line’ answer to the many complex and often incompletely understood aspects of many cysts. Indeed I believe that is the strength of this book: It provides a well documented review of the important literature about most of the controversial areas. The text then allows the reader to make his own mind up for each main type of cyst and divides them into frequency, age, sex, site, clinical presen­tation, radiological features, pathogenesis, pathology and treatments . . . In summary an excellent text book which tackles an important subject with a commanding logic.
