Is there an association with Wilson's disease and multiple tongue dysplasia lesions and in situ carcinoma? A case-report based literature review

We present a case of a 33 year old man who was treated in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with multiple dysplasia lesions and an in situ carcinoma of the tongue, which is to our knowledge the first case report of oral lesions to a patient with WD. Literature is reviewed on copper levels on patients with head and neck cancer, and on chelation agents and their effect on cancer cells.PMID:35319499
