We encountered a bilateral case of verruca vulgaris that developed at different times at the angle of the mouth.<BR>A 55-year-old man complained of a tumor at the angle of the mouth. The tumor had a clear margin and was elastic hard. Histological examination of a hematoxylin-eosin-stained section showed hyperkeratosis, parakeratosis, acanthosis, papillomatosis, and the presence of koilocytes in upper spinous cells and granular layers. Verruca vulgaris was diagnosed. Polymerase chain reaction performed with HPV consensus primers showed amplification for HPV DNA.<BR>The postoperative course has been uneventful for 20 months.
