Abstract
Oral mucosal lesions (OMLs) are a group of conditions that occur on the surface of the oral mucosa and present a variety of lesions. These lesions can impair the activities of chewing, swallowing and speaking. The discomfort caused by OMLs requires extra attention, especially in children. Impairment and discomfort, along with possible psychological problems, might consequently distract children and lead to poor academic performance.1, 2The clinical examination to obtain a diagnosis of oral conditions and lesions is fundamental, so that it must be correct, thorough, and systematic. The exam of soft tissues in pediatric patients involves knowledge of normal size, shape, color, and texture of the structures that comprise it. The correct exploration of the oral mucosa can provide important tools in diagnosing developmental, neoplastic, infectious or inflammatory alterations.
