Verrucous carcinoma with oral sub-mucous fibrosis: An uncommon occurrence
AUTHOR(S): Harsha Popli and Sunil Kumar
Verrucous carcinoma is a warty variant of squamous cell carcinoma showing exophytic and fungating growth. Oral submucous fibrosis is a chronic, potentially malignant condition and shows a 4.5% malignant transformation rate to squamous cell carcinoma. Transformation of verrucous carcinoma from OSMF is a rare occurrence and needs to be documented for creating awareness amongst clinicians for its early surveillance.
The present report documents a case of verrucous carcinoma arising from OSMF in a 35 year old male, an uncommon combination.
