GARCIA CANAS, P.; GARCIA CANAS, R.; GARCIA REBOLLAR, R.  e  MARIN GARCIA, F.. Verrucous carcinoma arund implants: Case report. Sanid. Mil. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp.38-42. ISSN 1887-8571.

Introduction: Oral rehabilitations with endosseous titanium implants have become in recent decades one of the most common treatments performed today in dentistry with a high rate of success. Although few cases are described, there are some carcinomas arising in peri-implant soft tissues, most of them as a recurrence of a prior oral cancer treated surgically and then functionally rehabilitated with implants. Objectives: We report the case of a verrucous carcinoma, also know as Ackerman tumor, a very rare variety of squamous cell carcinoma (1 to 10%), which appeared around a dental implant with no history of prior oral carcinoma, which it is very rarely in the literature. Discussion: Verrucous carcinoma is a variant of squamous cell carcinoma with low malignancy. It is more common in men over age 50, and closely related to tobacco and human papillomavirus. Treatment is surgical, yielding few recurrences. Conclusions: The mere possibility of occurrence of this serious disease, highlights the importance of eliminating risk factors and biopsies on any suspicious oral lesion as a key to avoid the serious consequences of oral cancer.
