• Warty dyskeratoma is a tiny, nodular lesion with a characteristic histologic picture that resembles that of Darier's disease. Until now, these changes have been described only on the skin and the mucosa of the oral cavity. To our knowledge, our case includes the first description of this lesion on the vocal cord. This study presents clinical and histologic features in detail, dealing also with the differential diagnosis, which is very important for distinguishing the warty dyskeratoma from the squamous cell carcinoma.
