Abstract: An increased prevalence of oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) was noted in the cashew workers of Kerala (7.85%). Out of the -ninety eight patients, six had no habit o f chewing tobacco or pan, and hence it is presumed that, aracholin alone has no significant role in the causation o f human OSMF at least in the present study group. The possible role of shell oil of cashew nut in the etiologic process of OSMF'is discussed.
