    Background: Palatal neoplasm cases in human are very rare. More than 90% neoplasms of the palate is squamous cell type. Not only cytological pleomorphism but also nuclear anomalies are reported to be observed in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). But, site specific cytological pleomorphisms are not reported so far. Therefore, an attempt has undertaken to investigate the cytopathology of human palatal neoplasms, pattern of cervical lymph node (CLN) metastasis and to analyse the probable etiological risk factors associated with it in the present study. Methodology: In a hospital-based study, out of 136 oral cases, 9 palatal cases (6 male and 3 female) registered during May 2007 to May 2009 were included in this study. Detail case-history including the nature and types of addiction of each individual was recorded prior to the collection of samples. Two scraped exfoliated cyto.. Read More»
