A patient is presented with a recurrent plantar tumor present for 15 years. This hyperkeratotic exophytic tumor behaved historically and appeared clinically to be a verrucous carinoma. Biopsy revealed Bowen's disease. The tumor was successfully treated with Mohs surgery. The tumor is presented due to its unusual location and its appearance that closely resembled verrucous carcinoma. The Mohs technique allows for total tumor ablation with maximal preservation of tissue in this important functional area.
