Abstract

QUID USAGE AMONG PATIENTS WITH CHEWER’S MUCOSA- ANALYSIS OF DIFFERENT PATTERNS A CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY

Dr. Prakash Chandra Jha*

ABSTRACT

Aim: Betel chewer’s mucosa, is generally not considered as a potentially malignant lesion, but it has been suggested to be a precursor of leukoplakia and oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF). Thus a study was undertaken to asses various quid chewing patterns in patients with chewer’s mucosa and to evaluate possible association between chewer’s mucosa and a particular quid usage pattern. Materials and Methods: The study was done on 300 subjects clinically diagnosed of having chewer’s mucosa lesion. After complete oral examination, a detailed habit history was taken through preformed questionnaire. The data obtained was analyzed using Chi-square test. Results: Among the 300 subjects males to female ratio was 7:3. Majority of the subjects were within the age group of 20 to 30 years and chewed a combination of betel leaf, arecanut, tobacco, lime. Majority of the subjects of chewer’s mucosa used the quid for duration of 1 to 5 years, a frequency of three to five quid per day. Conclusion: In the present study, chewer’s mucosa was seen in majority of the subjects who used the quid for duration of 1 to 5 years, a frequency of three to five quid per day and chewed the quid containing betel leaf, arecanut, tobacco, and lime as its constituents.

Keywords: Quid, Chewer’s mucosa, Arecanut.
