Abstract

Proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) is a multi-focal oral pre-malignant lesion, proliferative in nature, with a tendency to recur despite adequate therapy, and a high rate of malignant transformation. The field cancerization phenomenon may explain the characteristic behaviour of PVL. A case of PVL is presented and the field cancerization concept is discussed.
