Note(s)This section has been translated automatically.
The term "Carcinoma cuniculatum" is increasingly losing its meaning after florid oral papillomatosis together with florid oral papillomatosis, papillomatosis cutis carcinoides and condylomata gigantea were combined to form the term "verrucous carcinoma of the skin/mucosa". In the literature the terms are partly used synonymously, partly also separately listed (histological differentiation between carcinoma cuniculatum and verrucous carcinoma is possible). In the dermatological literature the carcinoma cuniculatum is mainly associated with the infestation of the inguinal skin (sole of the foot) in relation to the location.
