Abstract

A rare case of Merkel cell carcinoma of the nipple, occurring on pre-existing Bowen's disease is reported. This patient also had multiple Bowen's disease of the skin secondary to chronic ingestion of inorganic arsenic from drinking water. Less than 20 cases of Merkel cell carcinoma associated with Bowen's disease have been reported in the literature and only one case reported its association with chronic arsenic poisoning.
