• A large ulcerated cutaneous plaque developed in the inguinal region of an 83-year-old woman. The initial biopsy specimen showed a poorly differentiated transitional cell carcinoma with focal squamous differentiation. The patient was subsequently found to have a papillary transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary tract.
