Dermatol Sinica 19: 305-310, 2001

A 44-year-old female developed multiple asymptomatic scaly erythematous lesions on face, trunk and four limbs since childhood. Some lesions resemble pityriasis versicolor in appearance. She suffered from scaly crusted erosions on the face in recent years, which proven to be squamous cell carcinoma after surgical excision. Skin biopsies from lesions resembling pityriasis versicolor showed characteristics of human papillomavirus infection. The diagnosis of epidermodysplasia verruciformis was made by the clinical features, histological findings, and the history. We report this rare case and review related literature.
