Özet


Marjolin's ulcers commonly arise on chronic wounds, irritated skin areas and have a potential to transform into squamous cell skin cancer (SCC). These lesions have a poor prognosis and differentiation when transformed into squamous cell cancer. When transformed to squamous cell cancer this malignant skin tumor can cause recurrent metastasis and death. This condition had shows a variety of curative treatment modality.
