Aim. Oral carcinoma is a form of neoplasia with well-known clinical and morphologic features. This study presents the difference of incidence and behaviour in relation to the time of onset of oral carcinoma, and describes the experience made at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the Second University of Naples.
Methods. In this study 118 patients are analysed. They are divided into 3 groups according to age: group A up to 40 years; group B, from 41 to 75 years; group C from 75 years onwards.
Results. No patient of group A showed a carcinoma of verrucous type. This histologic type was found in group B, (14 patients: 14,1%) and in group C (6 patients: 46,1%).
Conclusion. The results of this study underline the importance of the time of onset in the behaviour of oral carcinoma and the age of patients.
