Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is a potentially malignant disorder, characterized by progressive fibrosis of the lamina propria and underlying connective tissue. It has high chances of malignant transformation. It is caused by betel nut which is very common habit among Indians. Thus, regular monitoring of histopathological changes is mandatory by physicians, private practitioners, and oral pathologists. Therefore, histopathological changes should be understood by everyone who is into health care. This article is a preliminary report on three-dimensional (3D) images and 3D-animation video of histopathological aspect of OSMF designed by author herself, for better understanding of histopathological aspect, which has never been reported so far. Additional hypothesis on epithelial atrophy have also been proposed.
