shweta bhayade, Sagar Mohkar

Abstract


Background: India is the country with the uppermost incidences of oral cancer in the world. Oral sub-mucous fibrosis (OSMF) is one of the frequent occurring potentially premalignant condition of the oral mucosa in Indian sub-urbs due to the common practice of tobacco chewing. Its incidence is rising like an endemic among youths of the Indian population. The present study associates the role of censorious components of tobacco or betel-nut chewing habit such as duration and frequency of chewing tobacco products to the clinical and histo-pathological grading of OSMF.

Aim: Finding the correlation between clinical and histo-pathological grading to different tobacco chewing habits in children below 14 years.

Design: The study comprises of 4 clinically diagnosed and histo-pathologically confirmed cases of oral sub-mucous fibrosis.

Conclusions: The present study shows a positive correlation between the different variables which play a vital role in the clinical and histo-pathological grading of OSMF in children.
