ABSTRACT:Erythroplakia is relatively uncommon lesion in the oral cavity has been known to have precancerous potential, often showing the features of epithelial dysplasia.Erythroplakia is predominantly a disease of the middle aged to older adults, with no signiﬁcant gender predilection. A significant number of cases with erythroplakia progress to carcinoma. We report a case of a 65 year old male patient presenting with erythroplakia on the palate.
