Bowenâ€™s disease is a squamous cell carcinoma in situ described in 1912 by John T. Bowen. It occurs predominantly in older individuals mainly on sun exposed areas. It affects both skin and mucous membranes and has the potential to progress into invasive squamous cell carcinoma. We report a case of Bowenâ€™s disease on the lower anterior abdominal wall in a 68 year old female which was managed by wide excision and primary closure.
