ZANINI, Maurício et al. Verrucous carcinoma: a clinical-histopathologic variant of squamous cell carcinoma. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.5, pp. 619-621. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000500013.
Verrucous carcinoma is a rare and indolent variant of the squamous cell carcinoma described by Ackerman in 1948. The oral cavity is a most common site. Clinically, it presents most often as a slow-growing verrucous lesion. The prognosis is good. Treatment of choice is surgery. Patients require frequent reevaluation because recurrences may occur.
