A 32-year-old patient, with no significant pathological history, who consulted in dermatology for a nail lesion involving the left major, non-painless, non-pruritic, gradually increasing in size since 1 year. On the dermatological examination, it was noted the presence of a plate making 1,5cm long axis, well limited, with verrucous surface sitting at the level of the distal edge of the left major with extension under one nail (Fig. 1). A cutaneous biopsy was performed on the tumor whose histology favored carcinoma in situ. Surgical treatment was indicated. Bowen’s disease is a carcinoma that rarely affects the nail system. It usually presents as an erythematous plaque or hyperkeratotic verrucous lesions. Nodules, ulcerations and bleeding are also described. Treatment remains surgical.
