The lesions were hypopigmented, erythematous, flat papules present over the face, neck, trunk and upper extremities. Multiple Bowen's keratosis over the face in case 1 and 2, and squamous cell carcinomas over the forehead in case 1 and the scalp in case 2 were also present at the time of presentation.
