Oral Verruciform Xanthoma: A Case Report
International Journal of Research and Reports in Dentistry, Volume 6, Issue 1,
Verruciform xanthoma is a benign growth found on the oral mucosa and occasionally may affect the skin. Clinically, verruciform xanthoma is an asymptomatic lesion. Depending on the amount of keratin present on the surface of the oral mucosa, it can appear as a reddish-gray papillary, flat or a slightly raised, rough lesion. The verrucous structure and exophytic properties of these lesions are similar to those of malignant lesions; therefore, histopathological assessment is mandatory for definitive diagnosis. Herein, we report a case of oral verruciform xanthoma on the lower right labial vestibule and to confirm the diagnosis immunohistochemistry (IHC) was done which showed positive CD 68 macrophages.
