Fillet flaps are deboned axial pattern flaps of a limb or its parts. It incorporates the principle of "spare parts" surgery. They are usually harvested from expendable, non- salvageable or amputated limbs. Here we report a case with a rare coincidence of marjolin's ulcer in the lower back and post burn deformity of the upper limb. After wide excision, the defect was reconstructed with sensate musculocutaneous fillet flap from the deformed upper limb producing a good quality skin cover without donor site morbidity. This case is presented for the rare combination of the tumor and deformity and no similar case has been reported using a pedicled fillet upper limb flap for back reconstruction.
