Objectives. The aim of the study is to observe the management of leukoplakia with mild-moderate dysplasia occurring on the lateral border of the tongue in a period of 15 years. Materials and methods. The follow-up of a patient with non-homogeneous plaque on the middle third of the right tongue has been analyzed. The biopsy report of dysplasia did favor surgical excision of the lesion that was again in the same place 6 months later. Given the uneven character, the site and the various histological features, over the years other 2 excisions were performed. Results and conclusions. Since 1996 till date 8 investigations and 3 excision biopsies were made; surgical protocol and the combination of "wait and see" did not affect the recurrence of the lesion that is still present with the same clinical and histological features. © 2012 Elsevier Srl.
