We describe the case of a 53-year-old man in whom pigmented bowenoid papulosis developed on the skin of the neck. By polymerase chain reaction with general primers for genital human papillomaviruses (HPV) and subsequent restriction enzyme cleavage we could demonstrate HPV 18-related DNA in two biopsy specimens of the pigmented papules. To our knowledge, this report represents the first case of HPV 18-induced extragenital bowenoid papulosis of the neck.
