Multiple Bowen's disease may be difficult to differentiate from bowenoid papulosis because of its clinicopathological resemblance to bowenoid papulosis. We experienced a case of bilaterally and symmetrically developed multiple bowenoid lesions in a 71-year-old man previously diagnosed as having chronic lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL). Based on histological findings and the results of human papillomavirus examinations, we finally diagnosed this case as bilateral Bowen's disease. We speculate that the underlying immunosuppressive state due to CLL may have been associated with onset of the disease. We report the unique clinical picture, the differential diagnosis and the aetiology.
