OBJECTIVE In our routine review of Oral Submucous Fibrosis (OSMF) biopsies, we observed decreased adipose tissue even though most are from buccal mucosa. Pathogenesis of OSMF has demonstrated the role of Transforming Growth Factor β (TGF β), in causing fibrosis. This study aims to correlate the role of TGF β with loss of adipose tissue in OSMF.
