Cutaneous squamous carcinoma in a patient with diabetic foot: An unusual evolution of a frequent complication
from Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Case Reports
After basal cell carcinoma, the cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is the second most frequent non-melanoma skin cancer worldwide, and, classically, arises from the upper coats of the epidermis of sun-exposed areas or from skin areas constantly exposed to a chronic inflammatory stimulus. The occurrence of cSCC seems to be linked to several factors, including exposure to sunlight (or other ultraviolet radiations), immunosuppression, chronic scarring conditions and some familial cancer syndromes.
