Hybrid Verrucous Carcinoma of the Palate: A Case Report
Verrucous carcinoma a low-grade variant of squamous cell carcinoma is the rarest of all oral cancers. A hybrid verrucous carcinoma is a non-verrucous squamous cell carcinoma that arises synchronously with the verrucous carcinoma. The differential diagnosis of verrucous carcinoma remains difficult and requires clinical and pathologic data confrontation. As the malignant behavior of hybrid verrucous carcinoma confined to the non-verrucous carcinoma component, careful examination of these tumors is needed. Here we report a case of 44 year old female patient with hybrid verrucous carcinoma with detailed review on clinical, histological features and treatment.
