Squamous cell carcinoma arising from burn scar of 20 years is rare. Here, we present a case of a 50-year-old female with ulceroproliferative lesion over heel and dorsum of foot following thermal burn sustained 20 years ago. The patient was not willing for surgical debridement and skin grafting following which he went into septicemia and ultimately landed into below-knee amputation without any adjuvant therapy. Post amputation, the patient survived for 5 years.
