Neoplastic degenerations of skin wounds on limbs and other parts of the body are well-known. They turn mostly into squamous-cell and basal-cell carcinomas or lymphomas. These degenerations are characterised by a long-lasting development and the lack of response to treatments. However, some degenerations originated as neoplastic degenerations, and showed up with fast-growing wounds and poor vascularization. They might be caused by traumas. They tend to be recent and difficult to diagnose. As such, biopsy is essential during the treatment and is frequently recommended in the initial evaluation.
