Oral Verrucous carcinoma

Oral Verrucous carcinoma

Oral verrucous carcinoma (OVC) is an uncommon variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Its incidence is between 2% and 16% of all oral cancers. The most common location for a malignant tumor of the oral cavity is the anterior two thirds of the tongue.The clinical presentation and surgical outcomes of OVC are unique; however, the management protocols for OVC are largely extrapolated from OSCC. Verrucous carcinoma usually is cured with a suitable therapy. However, recurrence of cutaneous carcinoma with clear surgical margins has been reported. The patients with a history of verrucous carcinoma should be evaluated with regular skin examinations at 3- to 12-month intervals. By:
