Oral verrucous hyperplasia (OVH) is a potentially malignant lesion that may transform into an oral cancer. Cases without local metastases can be conservatively managed with local excision, laser therapy, photodynamic therapy, chemotherapy, etc. The aim of this article is to present a case series showing treatment outcomes of OVH excised with laser. A total of 5 cases of OVH diagnosed histologically were included. All the 5 cases were excised using a diode laser and the specimen was sent for histopathological examination. Histopathological examination of excisional biopsy specimen with adjacent normal epithelium result has shown to be verrucous hyperplasia excluding the chance of verrucous carcinoma in any of the case. All the 5 cases were followed up for 18 months. All the 5 patients have shown excellent healing and epithelialization by 1 month and have shown full range of healing by the end of 3rd month. There were no complications reported over a follow up period of 18 months. Verrucous hyperplasia is a challenging pathological state for success after excision. A high degree of chance for recurrence and scarring of the tissue compromises treatment outcomes. In our experience use of diode laser for excision has shown satisfactory healing with minimal scarring and there were no cases of recurrence after 18 months follow up.
