Verruciform xanthoma (VX) is a rare benign mucocutaneous verrucopapillary lesion, which mainly involves masticatory mucosa and gingiva. Clinically, it presents as a solitary, sessile or pedunculated, white- or yellow-white-colored growth with a pebbled surface, hence often misdiagnosed as papilloma. The hallmark of histological diagnosis is the presence of foam cells or xanthoma cells confined to the connective tissue papillae. We present a case of VX on the maxillary gingiva in a 52-year-old male patient with oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) with a review on histopathology and concomitant oral lesions. The exact etiopathogenesis is not clearly delineated more so when it is associated with diverse local and systemic conditions. Its concomitant association with other conditions such as lichen planus, leukoplakia, oral squamous cell carcinoma and OSF is rare, with only three cases of VX associated with OSF reported earlier.
