Oral leukoplakia, the best-known pre-malignant oral lesion, is defined as "a white patch or plaque that cannot be characterized clinically or pathologically as any other disease." Analogous red lesions are called erythroplakia. Combined red and white lesions are also known as speckled leukoplakia or erythroleukoplakia.
