• Two cases of bowenoid papulosis (BP) occurred. The presence of human papillomavirus was demonstrated in one patient. In the other patient, condyloma acuminatum developed after initial spontaneous improvement in his lesions. The discovery of a possible oncogenic virus in BP and the epidemiologic behavior of carcinoma in situ and multicentric carcinomas suggest the need for a very careful follow-up evaluation of such lesions. Bowenoid papulosis may be a chronic dysplasia with a variable long-term prognosis linked to a cocarcinogenic factor.
