Abstract

Bowen disease, or squamous cell carcinoma in situ, has been described as a premalignant intraepidermal lesion of the skin. Although more frequently occurring on limbs, interdigital presentation of squamous cell carcinoma in situ in the foot has been rarely reported, likely because of undetected development. Excision has been recommended as the treatment of choice; however, removal of these lesions from intertriginous skin may present few options for skin closure. Interdigital syndactylization may be an acceptable option for the treatment of interdigital manifestations of Bowen disease. The authors present a case of interdigital squamous cell carcinoma in situ successfully treated with excision and digital syndactylization. At the 2-year follow-up, there was no recurrence and no digital deformities.
