Étude descriptive des lésions de la muqueuse buccale observées dans une population à risque à Bordeaux, France

Abstract : Alcohol misuse causes 3,3 millions death per year throughout the world, which represent 5,9% of total death causes. Alcohol, even in occasional consumption, increases the risk of developing cancer (head and neck, liver and colon-rectum). Tobacco in all forms (smoked or smokeless tobacco) is a risk factor for head and neck cancer. These effects are increased when alcohol and tobacco are used together The aim of this study was to characterize oral soft tissue lesions found in a study group of 178 patients having high consummation of alcohol and tobacco. 495 lesions have been found in 164 patients out of 178. The prevalence of oral soft tissue lesions in our study is 92,13%. Our prevalence is higher than those found in other studies. This is probably due to the high-risk population observed in his study.
