Cutaneous papillomatosis had been present for 22 years in a 41-year-old woman. After a period of slow advance the process remained stationary. An older sister showed the same condition, and her daughter at age 11 was beginning to develop signs. Occurrence of this rare entity in three members of a family suggests a genetic background to the disorder.
