From Published Reviews of the Previous Edition
The 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 Journal
As 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
This 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
