Verruciform xanthoma is an uncommon lesion of the oral mucosa having unknown etiology. It accounts for 0.025 - 0.05% of all pathology cases. The age of occurrence varies widely from 2 to 89 years. But most oral cases occur in middle-aged persons with mean age of 40 - 50 years, and no gender predilection is apparent. Apart from the oral mucosa it affects the genital mucosa as well and is considered to be a reactive process rather than a true neoplasm. The lesion commonly has a verruciform appearance, but it may appear polypoid, papillomatous or sessile.
This is a case report of a 58-year-old male patient who was initially diagnosed as speckled leukoplakia with left buccal mucosa but upon histopathological analysis was diagnosed as verruciform xanthoma.
