We report a case of isolated extragenital bowenoid papulosis (BP) in a young man with an idiopathic low CD4 count. The lesions occurred on the dorsal aspect of his left middle finger and were not associated with genital involvement. Polymerase chain reaction studies of a biopsy demonstrated human papillomavirus 18. As far as we are aware, this is the first documented case of BP (genital or extragenital) associated with idiopathic CD4 lymphocytopenia.
