AIM: Determining the prevalence of oral minfestations in patients treated at the Stomatology Clinic of the University of Southern Santa Catarina (UNISUL). MATERIAL AND METHODS: It consisted of a retrospective study conducted in 2014, with 145 medical records of patients seen at the Stomatology clinic in the period of 2010 to 2014. Through a survey form prepared by the authors the normal variations, oral lesions, biopsies performed, histopathologic diagnoses and the correlation between clinical and histopathological diagnoses were registered. RESULTS: The data was then organized in a spreadsheet and descriptively analyzed by simple occurrence counting. Of the 145 records analyzed, 57 were from men and 88 were from women. Their age ranged between 12 and 76 years, with an average age of 47 years and eight months. Among the normal variations, the Fordyce granules were observed in 20.59% (34). The fibrous hyperplasia were the pathology most frequent, 23, 5% (20). The total number of biopsies was 35, and the correlation between the clinical and histological diagnoses was 65.71% (23), in particular for inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia and leukoplasia. CONCLUSIONS: The main variation of normality was the Fordyce beads while the inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia was the main pathology diagnosed.
