Marjolin's ulcer is an aggressive disease arising in chronic wounds and cutaneous scars. Corbo et al define Marjolin's ulcer an often overlooked or misdiagnosed tumor. We report a case of Marjolin's ulcer arose in a burn scar of a 51-year-old man who sustained a burn in childhood. A punch biopsy showed squamous cell carcinoma. The lesion was surgically removed with wide excision. The loss of substance was covered with a partial-thickness skin graft, harvested from the left thigh with dermatome. Histological examination confirmed a well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Burn scars are the most commonly associated with these tumors, but other lesions may initiate this malignant transformation. The most common type of tumor reported in a Marjolin's ulcer is squamous cell carcinoma, but Pavlovic et al reported other malignancies.
