Abstract

Hansen et al first described proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) in the year of 1985. It is a rare form of oral leukoplakia which occurs as a slow growing and becomes multifocal and as the time progresses it becomes exophytic, wart like and ultimately transforms to squamous carcinoma. It has a high recurrence rate and also high malignant transformation rate. Etiology is still under the sheets. Though there has been association of human papilloma virus with its occurrence. The diagnosis and the management is still unclear.
A case of proliferative verrucous leukoplakia has been discussed with its etiology, diagnosis, management and prognosis.
