A rare case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in sebaceous cysts is described. This neoplasm most often arises on the scalp of elderly people in long existing cysts. Unroof-ing of the growing tumor leads to the formation of an ulcer with the tumor at its base. Wide excision, with a split thickness skin graft applied on the periosteum is the treatment of choice.
