Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Perianal Paget's disease is an uncommon intraepithelial neoplasm that involves areas affluent with apocrine glands, most frequently in the female external genitalia, but may also affect the perianal region.

OBJECTIVE:

We present the pathologic and clinical management of a case of Paget's disease involving the perianal region, in which diagnosis was delayed for 8 years.

CONCLUSIONS:

The importance of a high index of suspicion for early diagnosis is emphasized, which should be followed by aggressive surgical treatment with wide excision and local reconstruction.
