Aims: To correlate the functional and histological staging of oral submucous fibrosis. Materials and Methods: The study group consisted of 50 subjects who were clinically and histologically diagnosed as oral submucous fibrosis. Functional and histological staging were divided into four groups, as group I to IV. Results: The 50 subjects were in the age range of 12-57 years, out of 13 (26%) subjects in functional stage I, 5 and 8 subjects were in histological Group I and II respectively: 18 (36%) subjects in functional stage III, 5 and 13 were in histological group II and III respectively. Conclusion: Statistical analysts with Chi-square test showed highly significant with P value < 0.001
