Abstract

Epithelioma cuniculatum (EC) belongs to the category of verrucous carcinomas. Invasiveness and rate of metastasis are low, but there is a high risk of local recurrence. In cases of long-standing processes with formation of exophytic, malodorous tumors with jagged edges that do not respond to conventional therapy, consideration should already be given to EC upon visual inspection. The diagnosis is always established by histological examination. The standard treatment of EC is extensive excision of the tumor with micrographic margin control.
