Squamous Cell Carcinoma in the Sacrococcygeal Area: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
AbstractSquamous cell carcinoma is a rare malignancy in the pediatric age group. We describe a 12-year-old boy with squamous cell carcinoma of the sacrococcygeal region. This is the first reported case of that pathology in this region. The patient was treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy and is now free of disease 3 years later. The etiology of sacrococcygeal squamous cell carcinoma is unclear, and its possible pathophysiology in relation to its location is discussed.
