Introduction: Oral submucous fibrosis is considered as an irreversible, chronic, progressive, and premalignant lesion. The clinical manifestation of this lesion is presented as a fibrotic progressive scar leading to such complications as burning sensation in the mouth, spicy food intolerance, and dry mouth. Moreover, in more severe cases, this disease can lead to trismus, limitation of mouth opening, microstomia, speech disorders, as well as difficulty in moving the tongue and swallowing. The oral submucous fibrosis can have a multifactorial etiology; however, the main cause of this lesion remains obscure. This disease is considered to be a rare condition in children; however, the relapse is a common condition that occurs post-treatment. Case report: Herein, we presented a case of a 10-year-old male patient with a rare oral submucous fibrosis, with unknown etiology, who was managed with a particular combined treatment, including pharmaceutical, surgical, physiotherapeutic, and prosthetic approaches. Conclusion: The correct diagnosis and treatment planning in the patients suffering from oral submucous fibrosis are considered as essential factors to successfully achieve the desirable outcomes.
