Oral verrucous carcinoma (OVC) is a variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma which shows a local invasive pattern without any distant metastases. Accurate diagnosis of OVC depends on a careful association between clinical and histological features of the lesion. This paper reports a case of OVC over mandibular alveolar mucosa, mimicking Candidiasis. Use of diode laser for the management of the lesion is also described.
