    Abstract

    Cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (CSCCs) comprise 20-30% of nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs), and continue to increase in incidence. We report a case of a patient with severe psoriasis who had recurrent and eruptive CSCCs on her leg, which were successfully treated with cetuximab and radiotherapy. The patient had successful long-term clearance of her skin tumours, with the additional finding of resolution of psoriasis while on cetuximab therapy.
