Abstract

A teenage girl presented with multiple warty skin lesions and had a diagnosis of epidermodysplasia verruciformis made several years later. Later in life she presented with an extensive SCC in situ in her gluteal crease that was surgically resected with wide margins. Despite this treatment, the lesion recurred with extension onto her lower back. Biopsies at the time confirmed SCC in situ of the perianal tissue and invasive SCC above her gluteal cleft.
