A 46-year-old man from Germany was referred for evaluation of an intra oral exophytic white tumor in the right distal part of his cheek. The patient was edentulous since 5 years and reported to smoke 20 cigarettes per day. According to his anamneses the neoplasm had initially grown rapidly and now showed up a steady state for more than 3 years. Physical examination revealed a neoplasm with a keratotic surface and a well-delineated border. There were no signs of bleeding or ulcerations. Overall, the lesion had a diameter of almost 2.0 mm. Additionally, scattered white plaques were seen on the surrounding mucosa. A small biopsy on the border was performed to exclude a malign tumor (Squamous-cell carcinoma). Histopathological examination revealed an intraoral Papilloma Verruca Vulgaris associated with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) 2 and 4. The lesion was completely removed by surgical excision and the patient remained in a re-call for one year.
