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 31-year-old male patient with no relevant medical history presented with gray-brown asymptomatic small papules on his penis that had appeared a few months before (Figure 6). The dermoscopy revealed multiple areas with grey-brown dots aligned in a linear fashion and a keratotic surface. No vascular pattern could be identified (Figure 7). A skin biopsy was conducted and the histological examination confirmed the presence of BP.
