Abstract

Fibroepithelial polyps (FEPs) are among the most common benign skin lesions treated frequently without submitting for histologic examination since malignant degeneration is exceedingly rare In this case report, we describe an aggressive gross squamous cell carcinoma mass arising from a large pedunculated-type FEP located at the lower limb, which, to our knowledge, has not been reported yet.
