Oral verrucous carcinoma (OVC) is a subtle variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma with some peculiar features. It is locally invasive growth which rarely metastasizes. Verrucous carcinoma rarely affects the tongue. Herein, we report a case of excisional biopsy of a grayish-white lesion on the left lateral surface of the tongue performed with a 940-nm diode laser, which upon histopathological examination was diagnosed as OVC.
