Objective: Oral cancer is associated with tobacco habit and is preceded in most cases by premalignant lesions. An approach to cancer control is to identify potentially malignant or premalignant lesions where treatment of these lesions may prevent transformation to cancer. The present study was carried out to evaluate the clinical and molecular response of intralesional tetra-O-methyl nordihydroguaiaretic acid in oral premalignant lesions.
