ISHIOKA, Priscila; YAMADA, Sérgio; MICHALANY, Nilceo Schwery  and  HIRATA, Sérgio Henrique. Dermoscopy of Bowen's disease: pigmented variant on the penis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.3, pp. 482-484. ISSN 0365-0596.

Pigmented Bowen's disease (PBD) is a variant of squamous cell carcinoma in situ and represents less than 2% of cases of Bowen's disease. It is characterized by a sharply demarcated, pigmented plaque with a scaly or crusted surface on intertriginous and genital areas. The authors describe a case of PBD on the penis and analyze the dermoscopic aspects of this type of lesion.

Keywords : Bowen's disease; Carcinoma; squamous cell; Dermoscopy; Neoplasms, squamous cell.
