A case study of dermatosis papulosa nigra in a 46-year-old Caucasian. Small brown and red papules were expressed on the face. The clinical and histopathological findings were supported by detection of human papillomavirus type 23 in the skin lesions. Its role in keratinization disorders is discussed. The authors stress that this condition is rarely found in Caucasians.
