Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is a well-recognized, potentially malignant condition of the oral cavity that can affect any part of the oral mucosa. It is strongly associated with a risk of oral cancer, although the biology underlying this association is still unresolved. The purpose of this paper is to show the histopathological prototypical illustration of OSMF turning into oral squamous cell carcinoma.
