Author(s): Dr. Abhilash Pawar and Dr. Avadhut Dange
Abstract:Introduction: Oral verrucous carcinoma is an uncommon variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma. Demographics, clinical presentation and surgical outcomes are believed to be different from oral squamous cell carcinoma.
Methodology: A single case report of verrucous carcinoma managed wide local excision of tumour with Level 1 and 2 lymph node dissection followed by Nasolabial flap reconstruction.
Discussion: Verrucous carcinoma is any exophytic growth of well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma which generally presents as white warty lesion. They are slow growing with very low metastatic potential and good prognosis. Thus neck dissection and radiotherapy and chemotherapy can be avoided or limited to supraomohyoid neck dissection with close follow up.
