Oral leukoplakia is one of the most common physiologic as well as pathologic white lesion in the oral cavity. Of the many variants, oral proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (OPVL) is a rare clinicopathological entity of unknown etiology. OPLV initially develops as a white hyperkeratotic plaque that eventually becomes a multifocal disease with confluent, exophytic and proliferative features. Published case series with long-term follow-up describes OPVL as a disease with aggressive biological behavior due to its high probability of recurrence and a high rate of malignant transformation. This article describes a rare case report of OPVL associated with oral submucous fibrosis in the light of current information with clinical and histological aspect in a young patient, which was successfully treated with CO2Laser.
