White blood cell (WBC) dyscrasias refer to a group of disorders that affect the WBCs or their precursors. Oral manifestations are often the first identifiable signs of such disorders. A clear knowledge about these manifestations is necessary for both the dentist and the general physicians to initiate treatment at the earliest which could prove as a matter of life or death for the patient in certain malignancies. There is no comprehensive review on the oral manifestations of WBC dyscrasias till date. Hence, the aim of this review is to present the oral manifestations of the most commonly encountered WBC dyscrasias and their treatment modalities with an emphasis on dental management.
