Major etiological factor for causation of OSMF is betel quid and gutka chewing habit. Patient with OSMF usually complains of burning sensation in the oral cavity and progressive difficulty in opening the mouth. Several management strategies have been tried in the treatment of OSMF and steroids are usually the mainstay of treatment for OSMF.  These case reports portray the etiology, clinical features and management of these cases.
