Squamous cell carcinoma in situ, also known as Bowen's disease (BD), is a skin malignancy most commonly seen in middle-aged and elderly adults. Pediatric BD is rare and can be a diagnostic challenge for physicians. Digital BD has largely been associated with human papilloma virus. We report an immunocompetent 11-year-old girl with periungual pigmented BD induced by high-risk human papilloma virus.
