Abstract: Oral soft tissue swellings can involve any part of the oral mucous membrane. They could be caused by local irritation, infection or could represent a benign or malignant neoplasm. The color of a particular swelling is indicative of the constituents of such swelling. Our work is introducing a schematic differentiation among the different oral soft tissue swellings in reference to: their color, clinical behavior, histopathology and immunohistochemistry.Summary: The work presents a systematic thinking to reach a definite diagnosis of an oral soft tissue swellingReferences: El-Naggar, A.
