Squamous cell carcinoma is a common malignant tumor of the keratinizing cells of the epidermis. Verrucous carcinoma or Ackerman's tumor is a subtype of low grade squamous cell carcinoma that can affect cutaneous and mucous surfaces. Two cases of Verrucous carcinoma affecting the lip and oral mucous membrane (oral florid papillomatosis) are being reported. One patient had a co-existent sub mucous fibrosis, a pre-malignant lesion and two auto-immune disorders, i.e., diabetes mellitus and vitiligo.
