Squamous cell carcinoma of the pinna occurs primarily in older males who are exposed to sunlight for a prolonged period. Most squamous cell carcinomas of the pinna are well differentiated and present as a painless mass or a sessile nodule. We describe an interesting case of an adult woman with a non-healing wound located on the right pinna which was treated conservatively, and was later diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma.

Rak kolczystokomórkowy skóry zlokalizowany w obrębie małżowiny usznej występuje głównie u mężczyzn w starszym wieku, którzy są narażeni na długotrwałe działanie promieni słonecznych. W większości przypadków nowotwór ten jest dobrze zróżnicowany i ma postać niebolesnej masy lub nieuszypułowanego guzka. W pracy opisujemy ciekawy przypadek dorosłej kobiety z niegojącą się raną prawej małżowiny usznej – pacjentkę leczono zachowawczo, zanim ustalono rozpoznanie raka kolczystokomórkowego.
