BACKGROUND: Pilonidal disease is a common inflammatory condition mostly affecting young males. Malignant degeneration of a pilonidal cyst is rare, with incidence estimated at 0.1%. The most common type is squamous cell carcinoma and the treatment of choice remains en block resection of the lesion.
CASE REPORT: We present the case of a patient with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma arising in a pilonidal cyst, due to misdiagnosis of the disease during his first treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: Detailed histological examination of all excised pilonidal cyst lesions is essential and any histological suspicion should prompt a wider excision.
