Squamous Cell Carcinoma in Discoid Lupus Erythematosus
MJ Cyriac, T Gopinath
A case of Squamous cell Carcinoma arising in discoid lupus erythematosus of 10 years duration is described. The constant exposure to U-V rays in sunlight, in addition to the chronic hypoxidosis in the scar resulting from chronic discoid iupus erythematosus, is assumed to induce malignant degeneration.
