Verrucous carcinoma of the vulva, a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma, is a locally destructive, non-metastasizing tumor. While controversy surrounds the choice of treatment for this lesion, which frequently recurs, it is generally accepted that a recurrence is almost always local, with histologic characteristics and biologic behavior the same as those of the primary tumor. A case of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva with involvement of the regional lymph nodes after treatment of verrucous carcinoma is reported to increase awareness of the potential biologic behavior of this uncommon tumor.
