Abstract

A review of 20 patients with postburn scar carcinoma is presented. Eight early cases treated by wide excision and repair by skin grafting have been free of the tumour for the last 5-7 years. Nine patients treated by surgery and three patients who refused surgery and were treated by topical 5-fluorouracil developed metastasis and have since died.
