Marjolin ulcer arising within hidradenitis: a case report and literature review

Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Katz RD, Goldberg NH

This is a report of a patient with squamous cell carcinoma discovered in a bed of longstanding (>20 years) hidradenitis suppurativa. A literature search demonstrates this to be an entity with potentially devastating sequelae if not expediently diagnosed and treated. In light of the possibility of malignant transformation, the hidradenitis specimen and any suspicious lesions in proximity should be sent to pathology for thorough assessment.
