Focal acantholytic dyskeratosis (FAD) is an uncommon lesion of the oral mucosa with only 22 cases reported in the medical/dental literature. Fifteen additional cases of solitary oral FAD are presented. Of these cases, 4 occurred clinically as leukoplakia. Leukoplakia-associated lesions may be an addition to the current classification of solitary FAD.
