Marjolin's ulcer is a well-recognized, rare, long-term complication of post-burn scar and other chronically irritating local skin conditions. Its infiltration into the skull bones and the underlying dura causing complete destruction is very rare and quiet exceptional. We present an unusual case of spontaneous brain fungation through the scar tissue present over the scalp as a result of flame burn 18 years back. Patient was treated surgically, but expired after 10 days. Though we were not able to save the patient, its presentation was so unique that we want to report this case.
