    In this report we describe a case of bowenoid papulosis (BP) on the face of a 44 year old Algerian man. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of isolated extragenital BP. The presence of type 16 human papilloma virus was demonstrated by in situ hybridisation. This case underscores that multiple HPV-induced severe intraepithelial neoplasia, the so-called BP, is not restricted to the anogenital area.
