The article discusses the case of a patient with a lesion size that had gradually increased over a 6-year period. A previous diagnosis of a plantar wart had been made. Repeated cryosurgery had been performed. The result of physical examination and the differential diagnosis are cited. The surgical excision of the lesion and the confirmation of carcinoma cuniculatum by histopathology are also highlighted. No recurrence was seen 36 months after treatment.
