Verrucous hyperplasia

Q&A: What is Oral Verrucous Hyperplasia?

Author: Sanketh DS, MDS

Shear and Pindborb in 1980 reported lesions of the oral cavity that were clinically indistinguishable from verrucous carcinoma (VC) but showed slight differences under the microscope. They called them “Verrucous Hyperplasia” (VH). According to them, VH was best distinguished from VC by its broad rete ridges that were in level with the adjacent normal epithelium, not extending deep into the lamina propria.
