DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Low-malignant, slowly exophytic growing, highly differentiated, keratinizing spinocellular carcinoma with only very low metastatic tendency. This clinical picture is summarized together with other low-malignant verrucous carcinomas (Buschke-Löwenstein tumor, florid oral papillomatosis and the carcinoma cuniculatum) under the term " carcinoma verrucous". Thus, the term "papillomatosis cutis carcinoides" is increasingly losing its meaning.

TherapyThis section has been translated automatically.
Excision in healthy tissue with a lateral safety margin of 1 cm. For depth, reliable tumor freedom through histological incision margin controls is required. Terrain rehabilitation (e.g., in chronic venous insufficiency) and consecutive defect coverage with split skin or suture flap plasty is required. Since metastasis is to be expected in rare cases (with long duration), sentinel lymph node biopsy is recommended.
Progression/forecastThis section has been translated automatically.
Chronic course over years. Favourable prognosis after surgical reconstruction.
