Abstract

Background: Oral and maxillofacial pathologies are diverse and reports from different parts of the world show differences in the pattern of maxillofacial tumours seen. There is a need to observe and analyze the clinical data from various regions in India so as to know the epidemiological and clinical details related to the problem which may help in designing better prevention and management strategies as well as allocation of resources for dealing with the disease. Present study describes the clinical profile of Orofacial cancer patients visiting Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Aurangabad which is a well known tertiary referral centre in Marathwada region of Maharashtra. Methods: This is a study of 40 patients who had visited GMCH, Aurangabad for treatment during the period of August 2011 to October 2013. All 40 patients had biopsy proven carcinomas. Age and sex distribution of the cases was described. In local examination of the lesion, the clinical stage of the tumour was determined by TNM staging. Detailed examination of contra lateral as well as ipsilateral side of the neck was done for presence or absence of lymph glands. Results and Conclusions: Observations show that in our study maximum numbers of cases have occurred in 4th and 5th decades of life. The study comprised of 27 males and 13 females. Male to female ratio is 2.1:1. Carcinoma of the buccal mucosa was the most common site and most of the patients visiting hospital came in intermediate stages of cancer i.e. stage II and stage III.
