Extraordinary Case Report
Abstract

We present herein the case of an 80-year-old woman with a keratotic plaque measuring 1.4 × 1.3 cm on the left popliteal fossa. The plaque was resected and diagnosed on microscopic examination as low-grade sebaceous carcinoma. Sebaceous carcinoma on the leg seems extremely rare.
