Epidermoid carcinoma in nonhealing scar tissue, known as Marjolin’s ulcer, is not uncommon and is thought to behave in a more aggressive fashion than those from other causes. Between 1982 and 1997, 56 patients with Marjolin’s ulcer were treated at our center, Ege University Medical School, Izmir, Turkey. All lesions were secondary to various kinds of burns. Forty of these patients could be followed up 5 years or more. These 40 patients’ medical records were reviewed retrospectively.
