Verrucous carcinoma is a distinct morphologic variant of squamous cell carcinoma, which most commonly arises in the mucosa of the buccal sulcus and alveolus of the mandible. The lesion has a characteristic gross and microscopic appearance and a distinctive clinical behavior. This neoplasm has been characterized as a slowgrowing lesion of elderly tobacco chewers with poor oral hygiene. The case reported is unusual because of the young age of the patients and its extremely aggressive clinical course.
