    A 25-year-old man presented with a milky-white abnormality of the buccal mucosa on either cheek. Clinical examination revealed underlying leukoedema. Leukoedema is a clinical diagnosis confirmed when the white appearance of the buccal mucosa virtually disappears when it is stretched. The abnormality falls within the normal variation of the buccal mucosa and a biopsy and/or treatment are not necessary.
