Background: The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate various patterns of failure in patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma and to estimate overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) in failure patterns. Materials and Methods: Retrospective data of 500 patients operated for oral malignancy were obtained from year 2011 to 2014. Incidence of local, regional, and distant failure as well as DFS and OS was calculated. Furthermore, we studied various prognostic factors such as habits and coexistent comorbid conditions, depth of invasion, histological grade of tumor, and primary site of tumor. Results: Average DFS was 13.9 months and average overall survival was 55.77 months. The overall incidence of recurrence was 42.4%. Incidence of local recurrence was 24%, regional recurrence was 11.2%, and distant failure was seen in 7.2% of cases. Conclusion: Despite execution of standard treatment protocol comprising of surgery and chemoradiation, incidence of recurrence remains sententious in oral malignancy.
