Abstract

Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum is a rare tumour.1–11 The diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma rests on the exclusion of metastases from other organs, proximal extension of carcinoma arising from the anal canal and squamous-lined fistulous tracts. Here we report an uncommon presentation of rectal squamous cell carcinoma in a woman on long-term immunosuppressive therapy.
