  • B. Ram (a1), H. A. Saleh (a1), A. R. Baird (a1) and R. E. Mountain (a1)


Verrucous carcinoma is a distinct variant of well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Its occurrence in the maxillary antrum is rare. Only three cases have previously been documented. We present a case report of verrucous carcinoma in the maxillary antrum and a review of the literature.
