The case reported concerns a 57-year-old man with a 35-year history of hidradenitis suppurativa lesions confined to his buttocks and recently complicated by a large, ulcerated, well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Wide surgical excision and grafting, requiring temporary colostomy, were performed with no recurrence or metastasis during the following 12 months. The relevant literature is reviewed and discussed.
