Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common human malignancies; however, it is uncommon in the lower extremity. These lesions require prompt surgical attention and a delay in diagnosis can be harmful to the patient. We present a case report of squamous cell carcinoma with chronic osteomyelitis in a patient without diabetes. Definitive treatment included a transtibial amputation and metastatic workup was negative for active malignancy. Surgeons who treat chronic wounds should be cognizant of the potential for malignant degeneration. Level of Evidence: Therapeutic, Level IV: Case report
