Squamous Cell Epithelioma of the Sole. Presented by Dr. Saenz and Dr. Oteiza.
A white man, aged 58, born in Cuba, stated that for the past ten years he had suffered from a callous growth situated on the plantar surface of the first toe, toward its junction with the sole, on the right foot. About one year before presentation, the lesion ulcerated, and its center became papillomatous. On presentation, the growth presented a hypertrophic, exuberant aspect; it was about 2 by 3 cm. in size, dark red, and encased in a hyperkeratotic ringlike frame. Biopsy proved it to be a malignant type of squamous cell epithelioma.
Dr. Ferrer: This case is interesting. I have seen several cases of callous growths with epitheliomatous degeneration. These growths should be included among the preepitheliomatous lesions.
