Oral submucous fibrosis is a chronic debilitating disorder which is usually seen in adults with areca nut chewing habit. A rapid upsurge in the popularity of commercial areca nut products, especially among the younger generation, is a cause of grave concern, as satisfactory management is still lacking. Hereby, two pediatric cases of oral submucous fibrosis are reported.
