Malignant change in lupus vulgaris
M Girdhar, M Gupta, SK Arora, L Mohan, RD Mukhija
Two cases developed squamous cell carcinoma over the lupus vulgaris lesions. The first patient was a, 14 year male with a gradually developing painless, hypertrophic lesion just below the left knee for 6 years. Four years later a cauliflower growth developed over it. He was on antitubercular therapy for 3 months without any improvement. The second patient was 42 year male with a painless, growing lesion behind the right knee for 25 years. About 9 months back a rapidly progressive painful ulcerated mass developed over it which used to bleed easily o n slight trauma. Histopathological findings in both the cases were compatible with lupus vulgaris and squamous cell carcinoma. None of the cases had recurrence following excision and subsequent antitubercular therapy.
