Abstract

VERRUCOUS CARCINOMA -NOW AND THEN

Kannan A, Sumathy C, Jayanth Kumar V, Anitha B, Koteeswaran D

Verrucous carcinoma is a highly differentiated variant of squamous cell carcinoma which tends to occur more commonly in the men in the 6-7 th decade of life. There are reports to indicate the lesions arise from proliferative verrucous leukoplakia. Both the lesions have a greater tendency to occur in patients with smokeless tobacco use. Verruocus carcinoma is an innocuous lesion with a late tendency to metastasize. It responds well to surgical management. Here we report the occurrence of verrucous carcinoma from a preexisting case of proliferative verrucous leukoplakia in a 72 year old female patient.
