Small Intestinal Obstruction due to Metastasis from Marjolins Ulcer: Report of a Case and Review of the Literature
Marjolin's ulcer is an aggressive malignancy occurring years after chronic skin scar. The majority of these malignancies are squamous cell carcinomas. The rate of lymph node and distant metastasis is varied between 14 to 54% in different reports. Distant metastasis to the lung, brain, liver, and bone has also been reported. However, small bowel metastases are extremely rare. We present here a case of small bowel obstruction caused by metastatic squamous cell carcinoma from Marjolin’s ulcer.
