Squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are highly aggressive in patients with epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Non-ultraviolet-related SCCs are the leading cause of death in patients with recessive dystrophic EB, particularly recessive dystrophic EB-generalized severe subtype (RDEB-GS). The mechanism of SCC development in patients with RDEB continues to be investigated and several theories have been reported in the literature.
