Verruca vulgaris are common warts in children and adolescents but also in HIV-infected adults due to the human papilloma virus. Mostly, they occur on the hands, but also in the buccal mucosa, the gingiva or the alveolus as well-circumscribed, cauliflower-like lesions. Condyloma acuminatum are rare in the oral cavity and appear normally as multiple white or pink, small nodules, which can grow up to soft sessile, cauliflower-like tumors.
In the literature, a wide range of treatment options are discussed, but the treatment of choice still remains the surgical removal, either by laser ablation or routine excision. Future research will probably bring more and more new knowledge about virus induced tumors.
