“Erythro” stands for red and “plakia” for patch. Erythroplakia, classified as a potentially malignant disorder, is a red patch that cannot be clinically diagnosed as any other disease. It has had numerous definitions over the years since it was first defined in 1971. Erythroplakia was defined by World Health Organization (WHO) in 1997 as “A fiery red patch that cannot be characterized clinically or pathologically as any other definable lesion”.
