Background: For a rapid nutritional status of oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF), body mass index (BMI) and mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) are used in the study.Materials and Methods: The cross-sectional, observational study was conducted among 150 OSMF patients and categorized into four groups according to the functional stages of OSMF. The measurements of BMI and MUAC among all groups were noted, compared, and statistically analyzed.Results: Among 150 patients, BMI and MUAC scores showed a statistically significant difference and highly correlated in all stages of OSMF.Conclusion: In OSMF patients, BMI and MUAC scores were decreased with an increase in severity and stages of OSMF.
