Verrucous carcinoma is a variant of squamous cell carcinoma. It most typically affects the mouth with buccal mucous membrane being the most typical site affected. Clinically its proliferative finger like projections or a cauliflower like growth could be a typical feature towards diagnosis. It’s more common in tobacco user and more predilection in males. The histopathological diagnosis of verrucouscarcinoma is quite difficult and need immense expertise to report a case of verrucous carcinoma. Though verrucous carcinoma is a benign lesion with minimum aggressive potential however long standing cases shows transformation into squamous cell carcinoma. Here in we discussthe clinical and histopathological finding of the case of 80 year old male patient with oral verrucous carcinoma on buccal sulcus as a differential diagnosis with possible etiology, management of the lesion.
