Gutka, a combination of arecanut, slaked lime, along with tobacco, is virtually poison. Promoted as a mouth freshener, this mixture is a combination of 4,000 chemicals of which at least 40 are carcinogenic compounds and is considered mor harmful than other forms of tobacco.. Differential diagnosis: Leukoplakia (most probably ) Oral submucous fibrosis Lichen planus ( rare ) Treatment: Biopsy is required to exclude dysplasia or early malignant change. Treat candidal infection and iron deficiency if present. Topical chemotherapeuticagents such as bleomycin can be used or Treatment with systemic or topical retinoids can also be tried. Thank you sir
