PASCACIO FIORI, Martín; ALFEREZ ANDIA, Jéssica; KAPSOLI SANCHEZ, María  and  BENITES GONI, Harold. Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the sigmoid colon: a case report and literature review. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2021, vol.41, n.1, pp.41-44. ISSN 1022-5129.

Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the colon is extremely rare. The etiology is poorly understood, and currently, there are different hypotheses about the origin of this malignant neoplasm. Here, we report a case of an 87-year-old male with a moderately-differentiated nonkeratinizing squamous cell carcinoma of the colon.
