Abstract

Mucocutaneous Verruca Vulgaris: A Rare Presentation in an Immunocompetent Patient

Cutaneous warts encountered in Verruca vulgaris are easily recognized by the medical professionals. The mucosal counterparts in the oral cavity are, however, rarely seen in the medical practice. Overall the verrucopapillary lesions of the oral cavity are rare, and difficulties may, therefore, be encountered in diagnosing this lesion. Thorough clinical and histopathological examinations along with a relevant habit history are often essential in reaching a diagnosis. Early identification and eradication of the lesion is crucial in the prevention of further transmission, tissue destruction and rarely malignant transformation.
