oral verrucous hyperplasia

Monday 30 January 2023

Definition : Verrucous hyperplasia (VH) is a rare exophytic oral mucosal lesion which can transform into verrucous carcinoma (VC), its malignant but clinically similar counterpart.

Verrucous hyperplasia is a premalignant exophytic oral mucosal lesion with a predominantly verrucous or papillary surface; this lesion can subsequently transform into verrucous carcinoma (VC), a well-established warty variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
