In this chapter, the structure of the book is described and an overview about techniques for biopsies of the oral mucosa is given. Biopsies are frequently required for the diagnosis of oral lesions and both the choice of the biopsy site and sample storage are paramount for direct immunofluorescence microcopy and to receive optimal results by conventional histopathology. In addition, limitations of the book are indicated.
