Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF), and recently termed areca nut-induced oral fibrosis, is a debilitating disorder that hampers oral health and systemic health of patients. The management for this disorder involves a wide variety of modalities, including palliative, medicinal, and surgical. Regardless of tremendous research published in the literature, the management of OSMF has remained controversial due to the complexity of the disorder. Accordingly, this article aims to enlighten the clinicians with a comprehensive review of the current situation of the disorder and discuss the available medicinal treatment modalities for OSMF.
