Squamous cell carcinoma and meningomyelocele.


A case of invasive squamous cell carcinoma arising in the skin overlying a large lumbar meningomyelocele is reported. This case is unique in that a chronic neurocutaneous fistula was not present. It is proposed that chronic irritation of the meningomyelocele was the primary factor in the pathogenesis of the cancer.
