Slide 2: 

Synonyms:- Atrophia Idiopathica tropica mucosae orali - Idiopathic scleroderma of the mouth - Idiopathic palatal fibrosis - Sclerosing stomatitis - Juxta-Epithelial fibrosis (Juxta means near)

Slide 3: 

OSMF → Chronic disease of the oral mucosa characterized by inflammation and progressive fibrosis of lamina propria and deeper connective tissues

Slide 5: 

A condition with a high risk of malignant transformation Insidious chronic precancerous condition affecting any part of oral cavity & sometimes the pharynx.

Slide 6: 

It is preceded by and/or associated with vesicle formation and is always associated with juxta epithelial inflammatory reaction followed by progressive hyalinization of lamina propria

Slide 7: 

Later → Subepithelial and submucosal myofibrosis leads to stiffness of oral mucosa and deeper C/T with progressive limitation in opening of the mouth and protrusion of tongue leading to difficult in eating, swallowing and phonation

Slide 8: 

Subepithelial and Stiffness of oral submucosal myofibrosis mucosa and deeper C/T(+) ↑ vesicle + Juxta-epithelial inflammation Limitation of mouth opening

Slide 9: 

Areca products contain high level of copper (mean 302 nml/g) (Daily intake → 0.6-1.6 mg) Copper intake → ↑ Lysyl oxidase activity → Fibrotic disorder OSMF Hepatic &pulmonary fibrosis Scleroderma Areca nut chewing → Copper > 5mg/ day.

Slide 10: 

Areca nut chewing Arecoline, an active alkaloid found in betel nuts, simulates fibroblasts to increase production of collagen

Slide 11: 

Flavanoid, catechin, and tannin in betel nuts cause collagen fibers less susceptible to collagenase degradation resulting in increased fibrosis by causing both increased collagen production and decreased collagen breakdown

Slide 12: 

Areca nuts shown to have high copper content (chewing areca nuts for 5-30 minutes significantly increases soluble copper levels in oral fluid; copper acts as an initiating factor in patients with OSMF by stimulating fibrogenesis through up-regulation of copper- dependent lysyl oxidase activity

Slide 13: 

Ingestion of chilies ( capsaicin, active ingredient of chilies, stimulates widespread palatal fibrosis in rats)




AETIOLOGY (1) Tobacco, lime and quid Tobacco smoke → Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon Aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase Ultimate carcinogen

Slide 16: 

Tobacco chewing →N’-Nitrosonornicotine →Directly affect on the oral mucosa (Tobacco mixed with saliva) Lime in betel quid → which allow direct access of carcinogen

Slide 17: 

Arecoline → Aricodene (Potent stimulator of fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis) Hydrolysed by slaked lime

Slide 18: 

Betel nut chewing may be important factor in the etiology of OSMF Betel nut extracts → Flavanoids and tannins (make more resistant to degradation by collagenase resulting in accumulation of collagen) Alkaloid component (Arecoline) → increase fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis

Slide 19: 

(2) Local Irritants Capsaicin (active irritant in chillies) Spicy foods and alcohol

Slide 20: 

(3) Autoimmunity In HLA-DR3 antigen (+) ce of serum immunoglobulins and autoantibodies OSMF (like scleroderma) Autoimmune basis

Slide 21: 

(4) Genetic Alterations Almost all carcinogenic agents whether physical (radiation), chemical or infections (viruses) act as mutagens. They change structure of genetic material producing point mutations, deletion or insertions (mutation with sudden non-inherited changes of characteristics).

(5) Immunological Factors : 

(5) Immunological Factors Prolong immunosuppression can cause likelihood of malignant transformation because Helper T-cell play a vital role in functional differentiation of B-cells and production of interleukin-2 Decreased interleukin 2 production →↓ cellular & humoral immune response → prone to OSMF High levels of circulating immune complex (CIC) seen in OSMF

Slide 23: 

(6) Nutritional Factors Iron metabolism is important in maintaining the health of the oral mucosa and upper GI tract Precondition of oral mucosa, chronic deficiency of iron & vitamin B complex acts as important role

Slide 24: 

Kelly Paterson Chronic dysphagia or (sideropenic dysphagia) Plummer Vinson Syndrome + Iron deficiency anaemia + Glossitis OSMF may be considered as an analog of Plummer Vision Syndrome (Ramanathan) Folic acid, pyridoxine and Vit: B12, Vit: A and beta carotene deficiencies

Slide 25: 

(7) Candidiasis In fungal infection → Yeasts → produce carcinogen mainly nitrosamine → malignant transformation(+)


CLINICAL FEATURES The onset is insidious over 2-5 years period Prodromal symptoms include; burning sensation in the mouth when consuming spicy food appearance of blister especially in the palate; ulceration or generalized inflammation of the oral mucosa excessive salivation; defective gustatory sensation & dryness of the mouth

Slide 27: 

Early stage → Focal vascular dilatations clinically manifests as petechiae (may be vascular response due to hypersensitivity of oral mucosa to some irritants like chilli) Petechiae were observed mostly in the tongue followed by labial and buccal mucosa with no sign of blood dyscrasia or systemic disorders As the disease progresses, oral mucosa become blanched and slightly opaque and white thick fibrous band appear

Slide 28: 

Oral mucosa is symmetrically involved & fibrous band in the oral mucosa run in vertical direction Severe cases →Deviation of uvula (+) Inability to whistle or blow out a candle Difficulty in swallowing

Slide 29: 

Pterygomandibular raphe involvement (+)→ Limitation of mouth opening (+) Most of the patient experience a protracted period of stomatitis and/or glossitis with remission and exacerbation If fibrosis involves pharynx→ patient experience referred pain in ear Nasal voice as one of the later signs in some patients (MILLARD)


HISTOLOGICAL FEATURES Pathological alteration in OSMF begins in lamina propria & epithelium responds only secondary to it EPITHELIUM Epithelial atrophy – one of the marked changes in OSMF (or) Predominantly hyperplastic epithelium (1) & (2) → depend upon the cases & sites of biopsies Orthokeratosis (palate) or parakeratosis (buccal mucosa)

Slide 31: 

CONNECTIVE TISSUES Homogenization and hyalinization of collagen fiber bundles Narrowing of the smaller vessels appears first in the oral cavity and gradually spreads to deeper vessels Perivascular round cell infiltration predominantly lymphocytes and plasma cells Degeneration of muscles in deeper connective tissue layer

Slide 32: 

Earlier stages → mast cells (+) Obliterated blood vessels and capillaries Biological studies Blood chemistry and haematological variations vit B12 , folate and iron deficiencies

Slide 33: 

↑ESR Anaemia Significant haematological Eosinophilia Abnormalities ↑ T.globulin ↓Serum iron ↑ Serum mucoproteins and mucopolysaccharides

Slide 34: 

Iron-deficiency anemia appear to be one of the causes and not the effect of disorder Immunological studies ↑ serum levels of IgA, IgD and IgE

Slide 35: 

Cytogenetics Peripheral blood of OSMF patient → ↑ ed SCE (sister chromatid exchange) MALIGNANT TRANSFORMATION Frequency of malignant change in patient’s with OSMF → 3-6%



Slide 37: 

(1) PREVENTIVE MEASURE Reduction or even elimination of areca nut chewing Abstaining from ingestion of suspected irritant: such as chillies, tobacco, pan ...etc Maintenance of proper oral hygiene Vitamin supplement

Slide 38: 

Well-balanced diet Long term follow-up at short interval Public information about tobacco habits & Warning signs for oral cancer

Slide 39: 

(2) MEDICAL CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT Vitamin B complex Nutritional support High protein & calories Iron

Slide 40: 

Immunomodulatory Drugs (a) Local and systemic application of glucocorticoids Glucocorticoid Act as immunosuppressive agent ▼Fibrosis by decreasing fibroblastic proliferation and collagen deposition

Slide 41: 

(b) Physiotherapy Hot rinses - Heat in the form of Lukewarm water Microwave (or) Short wave diathemy -Forceful opening of mouth Satisfactory results(++)

Slide 42: 

(c) Local drug therapy Dexa methasone/steroids (i) Local injection of Hyaluronidase Placental extract (aqueous solution of human placenta)

Slide 43: 

Submucosal Dexamethasone 2 part of Injection 4mg/ml + hyaluronidase (800 USP unit/ml) diluted in 10ml of 2% xylocaine

Slide 44: 

By means of gauge 27 dental needle not more than 0.2ml solution for period of 20 weeks * (Massaging the cheeks with mouth closed. Asking the patient to perform mouth opening exercises for 30min after the submucosa injection)

Slide 45: 

Hyaluronidase by breaking down ↓ viscosity Hyaluronic acid of intercellular ground substances Decreased collagen formation

Slide 46: 

Placental extract anti inflammatory action (+) and analgesic effect (+) ↑ed Blood circulation and tissue vascularity Lowered immune response Produce metabolic degenerative condition

Slide 47: 

Steroids → combined use of local and systemic administration of hydrocortisone (intralesional injection of kenakog) Chymotrypsin → Act as proteolytic and anti-inflammatory agent

Slide 48: 

(d) Combined therapy Peripheral vasodilator + vit: D, E, B complex + placental extract + steroids (local & systemic) + Physiotherapy → 62% success rate (e) Submucosal injection of fibrinolysin and gold


(3) SURGICAL MANAGEMENT (FOR ADVANCED CASES) Teeth needing extraction should be dealt before commencement of any treatment/ management of OSMF Submucosal resection of fibrotic band replaced by partial –thickness skin graft or mucosal graft Recently →Surgical excision of fibrous bands with submucosal replacement of fresh human placenta graft follow by local injections of Dexamethasone
