Spontaneous regression of malignant neoplasms is an extremely rare event. However, it is reported virtually in all types of human cancer, including oral cancer. The induction of spontaneous regression may involve multiple mechanisms which may be either differentiation or cell death. Better understanding of the process of spontaneous regression may offer the possibility of improved methods of treating and preventing cancer.
