Abstract

Apoptotic count was assessed in 38 cases of squamous cell carcinoma of oral cavity by light microscopy and correlated with TNM stage, histological grade and survival. A direct correlation with the TNM stage (p=0.0166)and an inverse correlation with the histological grade (p=0.03) was found, however no correlation was found with the survival. Apoptotic count was significantly different between well and moderately differentiated carcinoma (p=0.347) and well and poorly differentiated carcinoma (p=0.0190). Thus apoptotic count may have prognostic value particularly in combination with staging and histological grade.
