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 0365-0596.

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.

Keywords : Carcinoma, Squamous Cell; Carcinoma, Squamous Cell [diagnosis]; Carcinoma, Squamous Cell [pathology].
