Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Reverse smoking is a habit that is endemic in many Indian, South American and Caribbean communities. Two case reports of reverse smoking are presented in this paper. Although it causes characteristic changes in the palate, the role of reverse smoking in oral cancer is unclear. No clinical studies are available on reverse smoking using commercially available cigarettes.
