Verruciform xanthoma [VX] is an uncommon benign mucocutaneous lesion of unknown etiology. This rare, harmless lesion usually presents as sessile or pedunculated, pale yellowish-to-red, papillary, granular or verrucous mucosal growth. Histologically VX is characterized by the presence of parakeratinzed epithelium showing papillary or verrucous growth with thin rete ridges and connective tissue papillae extending up to the surface. The papillae characteristically consist of foam cells, also called xanthoma cells. We report two cases of verruciform xanthoma and discuss their clinical and histopathological findings.
