Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Foot Occurring in a Wart

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Verrucous carcinoma is a rare form squamous cell carcinoma which appears similar to a wart. When it occurs in the feet, it can be easily misdiagnosed. It rarely metastasizes or recurs posttreatment. We report a case of a septuagenarian with recurrence of verrucous carcinoma diagnosed within 6 months at the site of previous treatment. Unique features in our patient’s clinical presentation include his advanced age, being nondiabetic, and the rapid recurrence of carcinoma.
