Abstract

Clinicopathological results of 4 cases of oral cancers, which recurred after 2 to 7 years following surgery with chemo-and radiotherapy, was retrospectively discussed. In 2 out of 4 patients recurrent tumors appeared in the neighboring site of the primary lesion. In the other 2 patients, multiple tumors were found in the opposite side of the primary lesion. After a period of 3 to 12 years, all cases showed satisfactory clinical courses. The results of the present study suggest that careful surgical excision of various mucosal lesions found after the treatment of oral carcinomas is very important. Especially, precancerous lesions of patients with oral carcinoma have an occasional malignant potential.
