With growing Asian population in the United Kingdom, the doctors there are beginning to see patients suffering from Oral Submucous  Fibrosis, but are not clear about its management.  Therefore the surgeons who attended this lecture benefitted a great deal to learn the management of this condition. Truly a case of “East teaches West”.
