Marjolin's ulcer is an aggressive cutaneous malignancy common in previously traumatized or chronically inflamed skin. It has high regional metastasis and fatality rates. Our patient presented with subcutaneous nodules and ulcerations on the right limb. He had a history of osteomyelitis of the fifth toe. Histopathological examination of the nodule and ulceration demonstrated squamous cell carcinoma. The nodules and ulcerations were in-transit metastases of Marjolin's ulcer. Here, we present a case of squamous cell carcinoma arising at a site of a chronic osteomyelitis with resultant in-transit metastases.
