Abstract

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) can occur at various sites, including the oral mucosa, where it is associated with a high risk of head and neck cancer. We report the case of a 46-year-old woman with tongue cancer that developed following Hodgkin’s lymphoma and chronic GVHD, and we discuss the possible causes of cancer development.
