Cutaneous horn is a conical protuberance composed of keratin. Although most lesions are benign, they can harbor a malignancy. We report a case of 62 year old man with recurrent cutaneous horn. Fine needle aspiration showed only squames. On histopathology the lesion showed features of verrucous carcinoma. The margins were free of tumor.

Key words: Cutaneous, Horn, Verrucous, Carcinoma
