Squamous cell carcinoma is a malignancy arising from keratinocytes. Arteriovenous (AV) fistula is one of the rare conditions causing chronic inflammation of skin and underlying structure. AV fistula can create catastrophic complications such as squamous cell carcinoma if neglected. There are very few reports of squamous cell carcinoma due to Av fistula. Most of the cases require surgical excision of squamous cell carcinoma with ligation of AV access if infiltrated. Early detection of cutaneous malignancy will reduce the morbidity and mortality related to malignancy and it also salvages the AV fistula.
