Introduction
  • Malignant soft tissue tumor found in older patients
  • Epidemiology
    • location
      • dorsum of hand and forearm
      • most common subungual malignancy
    • risk factors
      • primary risk factor is excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation
      • actinokeratosis
      • chronic osteomyelitis
        • Marjolin's ulcer is a squamous cell carcinoma resulting from chronic draining wounds or burn scars  
  • Prognosis
    • metastasis
      • lymph node metastases and high histologic grade confer poor prognosis
      • higher metastatic potential than basal cell carcinoma
Presentation
  • Symptoms
    • pain 
Imaging
  • Radiographs
    • recommended views
      • AP and lateral of affected area
    • findings
      • lytic lesion 
Treatment
  • Operative
    • wide surgical resection +/-skin graft +/- radiation
      • indications
        • standard traditional treatment
      • adjunctive radiation
        • indications
          • lesions >2cm wide
          • 4mm deep
          • perineural invasion
          • lymph node metastases
    • Mohs microsurgery
      • indications
        • becoming more popular
        • smaller lesions
        • highest cure rate
      • technique
        • lymph node biopsy may be necessary
