 en Pathological Fracture Complicating Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Case Report.
Oburu, E. & Kimani, Mwangi

Abstract

We report the case of a 65 year old female presenting with a 5 year history of a chronic ulcer with episodes of resolution and recurrence on the right leg. The radiograph of this patient showed a pathological fracture of the right tibia. The biopsy showed a differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Malignant transformation of an ulcer is rare but changes in character of an ulcer should arouse suspicion of neoplastic transformation.
