Oral verrucous carcinoma was first recognized by Ackerman in 1948 as a distinct entity. Although it occurs at various anatomic sites, most intraoral cases involve buccal mucosa, alveolar mucosa and gingiva. The purpose of this article is to describe four cases of verrucous hyperplasia and carcinoma with special emphasis on various clinical presentation and the most predilection sites.
Verrucous hyperplasia and verrucous carcinoma may not be distinguished clinically or may coexist, resulting in diagnostic difficulties. It should be born in mind that leukoplakic lesions may transform into verrucous carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, so all such pre-cancerous lesions should be scrutinized conscientiously. Thus, it is amenability of both the oral physicians and histopathologists to be scrupulous about warty and exophytic lesions.
