The primary sites of cancer cases were: 5 tongue, 6 oral floor, 5 gingiva, 3 hard palate and 1 cheek.
The clinical stages were: stage I 2 cases, stage II 10 cases, stage III 5 cases and stage IV 3 cases.
The clinical results obtained were recorded as excellent (complete response) in 11 cases (55%), effective in 7 cases (35%) and moderate in 2 cases (10%).
