(20) According to Messadi, "[The toluidine blue staining] test appears to be highly sensitive (93.5 percent to 97.8 percent) but less specific (73.3 percent to 92.9 percent), mainly because of high false-positive results." (3,20,39) Toluidine blue staining does have limitations, including selective staining which causes some premalignant and malignant lesions to go undetected.
After that, the SPs were stained with 0.1% toluidine blue in 1% acetic acid (Rodrigues et al., 2016).
