“Leuko” stands for white and “plakia” for patch. Leukoplakia, classified as a potentially malignant disorder, is a white patch that cannot be rubbed of and cannot be clinically diagnosed as any other disease. It has had numerous definitions over the years since it was first defined. In 2005, WHO defined leukoplakia as “a white plaque of questionable risk having excluded (other) known diseases or disorders that carry no increased risk for cancer”.
