Bilateral Verrucous Carcinoma of the Feet Abstract A 51-year-old woman had had bilateral verrucous carcinoma of the feet for ten years. The tumors had been treated many times as extensive verruca vulgaris before a biopsy was performed and the true neoplastic nature of the lesion recognized. This case illustrates the necessity of performing biopsies on atypical or frequently unresponsive verrucous tumors. (Arch Dermatol 115:1222-1223, 1979) References 1.

Abstract

Abstract A 51-year-old woman had had bilateral verrucous carcinoma of the feet for ten years. The tumors had been treated many times as extensive verruca vulgaris before a biopsy was performed and the true neoplastic nature of the lesion recognized. This case illustrates the necessity of performing biopsies on atypical or frequently unresponsive verrucous tumors. (Arch Dermatol 115:1222-1223, 1979) References 1.
