Abstract

Abstract While transition of a varicose ulcer to an epithelioma is rare, it should be borne in mind when persistent ulceration occurs which does not heal under the usual therapeutic measures employed. Radiation therapy is the method of choice for the treatment of varicose ulcer epithelioma. A case is reported showing the result of such treatment. Photographs of the lesion before and after treatment are shown.
