Abstract

Wide excision and skin or mucosa grafting has been the primary form of therapy for verrucous hyperplasia and verrucous carcinoma. But those with wide involvement often make the procedures complicated. A simple management, shave excision followed by simple cryosurgery, is presented. The treatment modality described is simple, and less traumatic. It can be performed under local anaesthesia, and requires no hospitalization. It has been easily used to treat 26 lesions in 20 patients with satisfactory results.
