We present a case of Verruciformxanthoma (VX) occurring on faucial pillar of oral cavity. VX is an uncommon benign mucocutaneous lesion of unknown etiology. It usually appears as single or multiple plaques or papules may be raised or flat with verrocous or pappilary rough surface texture, colour varying from reddish pink to yellowish gray, mainly affecting masticatory mucosa, especially gingiva and hard palate. Histologically, VX is characterized by the presence of parakeratinized epithelium with thin rete ridges and connective tissue papillae extending up to the surface. The papillae characteristically consist of foam cells, also called xanthoma cells. We report a case of VX in the faucial pillar which is not been reported in the literature and discuss their clinical and histopathological findings.
