A 40-year-old Japanese man visited our hospital complaining of small black nodules on the bilateral lower eyelids. He also had flat wart-like lesions and pityriasis versicolor-like plaques on his extremities and trunk. Cased on the clinical and histopathological findings, he was diagnosed to have epidermodysplasia verruciformis. The black noduies of the lower eyelids were treated with cryosurgery under a diagnosis of seborrheic keratosis. No skin lesions suspected to demonstrate either premalignancy and/or malignancy were obsereved. In addition, no immunological abnormalities were detected.
