37 cases of oral verrucous carcinoma, occurring over a period of six years from 1981-1986, were analysed in respect of the clinical, radiological and histological findings. A delineation of the clinical presentation of this tumour, and the relation of habits to the occurrence of the lesion, has been clarified. The connotation of the term verrucous hyperplasia and its differences from verrucous carcinoma, have been discussed. Surgery and radiotherapy both seem to give good results as methods of treatment, especially when coupled with adequate nutrition and cessation of harmful habits.
