The oral cavity is like a natural speculum that lets one peek into what lurks underneath the integument. It is a portal to the inside of the body. Impossible it is to fathom a healthy mouth in a diseased body. It is frequently involved in conditions affecting the skin or other multiorgan diseases. Oral involvement precedes the appearance of other symptoms or lesions at other locations. This review discusses how this strategic location offers a valuable role in diagnosing occult diseases to the oral physician.
