Marcucci C, Sabban EC, Friedman P, Peralta R, Calb I, Cabo H - Dermatol Pract Concept (2014)

Bottom Line: Bowenoid papulosis (BP) corresponds to an in situ squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) located in the anogenital region.A biopsy is needed to confirm the diagnosis; however, dermoscopy may be useful to differentiate this disease from other conditions, such as genital warts, seborrheic keratosis and lichen planus.In this paper we describe the dermoscopic findings in two patients with this disease.

ABSTRACT
Bowenoid papulosis (BP) corresponds to an in situ squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) located in the anogenital region. It is related to HPV, and presents with gray-brown elevated papules or plaques. A biopsy is needed to confirm the diagnosis; however, dermoscopy may be useful to differentiate this disease from other conditions, such as genital warts, seborrheic keratosis and lichen planus. In this paper we describe the dermoscopic findings in two patients with this disease.

Mentions: A 54 year-old-man, presented with multiple, small, well- defined, gray-brown, papules and small papillomatous patches located on his penis, which had appeared over the last year (Figure 1). Genital warts, lichen planus, a verrucous nevus and BP were suspected among our clinical diagnosis. The dermoscopy revealed a pigmented papillomatous surface, brown-gray dots arranged in a linear distribution at the periphery of the lesion, and widespread dotted vessels (Figures 2 and 3). A biopsy was done, and the histology showed mild hyperkeratosis, irregular acanthosis, dyskeratosis, cytological atypia and mitosis (Figures 4 and 5), consistent with the diagnosis of BP.
