Actinically induced squamous cell carcinomas of the skin (SCC) are generally considered nonaggressive and usually curable tumors.

The tumor progressed from a localized lesion to an invasive destructive lesion which resulted in death. The occurrence of SCC in patients with lymphoma or leukemia possibly should be more aggressively treated, early in its course.
