    Verruciform xanthoma (VX) is a rare benign lesion and mainly effects the oral mucosa. This slow-growing asymptomatic lesion typically develops along the gingival margin of the masticatory mucosa, followed by the hard palate, tongue, buccal mucosa, floor of the mouth, alveolar mucosa, soft palate and junction between the hard and soft palate. Moreover, this lesion can also affect the skin and genital organs. Read More

    J Cutan Pathol 2015 Jul 4;42(7):489-95. Epub 2015 Jun 4.
    Oral Pathology, Department of Oral Diagnosis and Pathology, School of Dentistry, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
    Verruciform xanthoma of the oral cavity is an uncommon benign lesion that usually affects the palate and gingiva mainly as a well-circumscribed solitary yellowish to whitish plaque or nodule, which is promptly recognized microscopically by identification of sub-epithelial foamy macrophages. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features of 20 cases of oral verruciform xanthoma. All cases were evaluated by conventional hematoxylin/eosin staining and six of those were submitted to immunohistochemical reactions for CD68, CD63, CD163, syndecan-1 (CD138), S-100 protein and cytokeratins (CK) 8, 14 and 19.

    Oral verruciform xanthoma.
    BMJ Case Rep 2015 Mar 27;2015. Epub 2015 Mar 27.
    Department of Pathology, Bristol Dental Hospital, Bristol, UK.
    Verruciform xanthoma (VX) of the oral cavity is a benign mucosal growth that often presents as a pink, yellow or grey raised plaque or papule with granular, papillary or verrucous surface morphology. Intraorally this often presents on the masticatory mucosa and extraorally often involves the skin and anogenital mucosa. There are several proposed aetiological factors and the clinical features of VX can be misleading; clinically it can resemble malignancy. Read More

    A careful examination of lips is often neglected by the members of the medical and dental professions; yet the lips reveal a heterogeneous group of lesions ranging from congenital abnormalities to benign and malignant neoplasms. Verruciform Xanthoma (VX) is an uncommon benign inflammatory mucocutaneous condition that occurs in the oral cavity which was first described by Shafer in 1971. It is often associated with pre-existing epithelial and/or inflammatory disorder and is characterized histopathologically by papillary epithelial hyperplasia and the presence of foamy macrophages in connective tissue papillae.

    Senior Lecturer, Department of Oral Pathology & Microbiology, Dasmesh Institute of Research and Dental Sciences , Faridkot,India .
    Verruciform xanthoma is an uncommon benign lesion of undetermined aetiology. It is a superficial normo-lipemic xanthoma, probably reflecting a multifactorial reactive and dystrophic process. Its clinical and pathological recognition and correct diagnosis is critical because it can occur in conjunction with other systemic and cutaneous inflammatory diseases; therefore, it necessitates further clinical assessment.

    Disseminated verruciform xanthoma: a case report.
    Cutis 2014 Jun;93(6):307-10
    161 Ft Washington Ave, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10032, USA.
    Verruciform xanthomas (VXs) are rare mucocutaneous lesions that can appear in isolation or in association with chronic inflammation, systemic diseases, or metabolic abnormalities. We report the case of a patient who presented with disseminated VX with oral, cutaneous, and genital involvement without an obvious underlying cause. Treatments including salicylic acid 40%, high-potency topical corticosteroids, antibiotics, and chlorhexidine failed to improve the lesions; however, the patient was satisfied with the cosmetic results of serial shave excisions.

    Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Dental College and Hospital (A Constituent College of Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara University), Mysore, Karnataka, India.
    Verruciform xanthoma is a very uncommon papillary growth seen chiefly in the oral mucosa. The presence of foam cells in the connective tissue papillae between the epithelial rete ridges forms the hallmark in its diagnosis. There has been wide speculation and various hypotheses put forth in explaining the etiopathogenesis of verruciform xanthoma and the origin of foam cells. Read More

    Institute of Dermatology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Nanjing, China.
    Congenital hemidysplasia with ichthyosiform erythroderma and limb defects (CHILD) syndrome is a rare X-linked dominant disease characterized by peculiar cutaneous presentations and skeletal abnormalities. Verruciform xanthoma (VX)-like histologic changes occasionally occur in CHILD syndrome, but typical VX-like lesions coexisting with CHILD syndrome are rare. In this study we report a rare case of multiple, coexisting VXs on the vulva and left lower limb of an 11-year-old Chinese girl who also exhibited the typical clinical presentations and limb defects of CHILD syndrome.

    Verruciform xanthoma of the upper-extremity in the absence of chronic skin disease or syndrome: a case report and review of the literature.
    J Cutan Pathol 2013 Aug 9;40(8):745-52. Epub 2013 May 9.
    Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, DC, USA.
    Verruciform xanthoma is a rare, benign lesion classically presenting on the oral mucosa or genital area. The etiology is not yet completely understood; however, verruciform xanthoma is often associated with (a) conditions of chronic inflammation or trauma, such as lichen sclerosis, recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, and pemphigus vulgaris, as well as in a setting of (b) chronic lymphedema, (c) chronic graft versus host disease, or (d) congenital epidermal nevi, such as those associated with the Congenital Hemidysplasia with Ichthyosiform nevus and Limb Defects (CHILD) syndrome. We report a case of a solitary verruciform xanthoma on the forearm of an 82-year-old man without history of chronic dystrophic skin disease or syndrome. Read More
