We report a case of extragenital bowenoid papulosis (BP) in a healthy immunocompetent 42-year-old man. The lesions occurred on the anterolateral aspects of the neck and were not associated with genital, oral, or periungual lesions. Lesional skin tested positive with the Digene hybrid capture system cocktail assay that identifies infection with a mixture of high to intermediate oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) types, including types 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 45, 51, 52, and 56. This cocktail assay identifies infection with HPV types typically associated with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions and invasive carcinoma. This case represents the sixth case of isolated cutaneous BP occurring a significant distance from the genital region.
