Abstract :

A 73-year-old female presented with diffuse erythematous patches with heating sense on left thigh. The patient received wide excision of well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of left shin 4 years ago. The patient was treated as an outpatient for cellulitis with antibiotics, which produced almost complete improvement after 6 months. However, multiple tiny erythematous papules with diffuse erythematous patches on left thigh were persistent after 6 months of antibiotics treatment. Punch biopsy of the lesion confirmed well-differentiated, microinvasive squamous cell carcinoma. The histologic examination of the lesion showed scattered atypical squamoid and basaloid tumor nests in the upper and deep dermal layer. Herein, we report a case with squamous cell carcinoma presenting as cellulitis.
