VERRUCOUS CARCINOMA: CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOPATHOLOGY AND TREATMENT
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
INTRODUCTION & ETIOLOGY
Verrucous carcinoma is a low grade variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma, that is exophytic and warty. This lesion was first described by Ackerman in 1948, and is also called Ackerman’s tumor.
Unlike its cousin squamous cell carcinoma, verrucous carcinoma locally invades adjacent tissues, infrequently shows dysplasia and does not metastasize.
