We'll start with an outline of today's lecture. And in today's lecture, we'll be discussing causes of oral ulcers and oral soreness. And in particular, we'll be discussing recurrent aphthous ulcers or recurrent aphthous stomatitis, we'll be discussing the epidemiology, the clinical presentation, and classification, the etiology and pathogenesis, and of course the management approaches to these ulcers. We'll also be discussing aphthous-like lesions and associated conditions. These are lesions that mimic recurrent aphthous stomatitis.

So first of all, we'll get started with the common causes of oral soreness or oral ulcers, and these can be caused by local causes, they can be of course caused by malignancy, by drug reactions, or as a result of systemic diseases.
